Bronfein Family Law Clinic Student Attorneys Testify in Support of Reproductive Health Legislation for Female Inmates

On February 13 and 15, 2018, students from the Bronfein Family Law Clinic, as part of the Reproductive Justice Inside Coalition, submitted written testimony and gave oral testimony in front of the Senate and then House on SB 598 and HB 797. These bills would require correctional facilities in Maryland to provide menstrual hygiene products to female inmates for free. Also on February 15, students submitted written testimony and testified in front of the House on HB 787, which would require all correctional facilities to have written policies related to reproductive health care for pregnant inmates. Both bills have since passed in Committee!
