Babies to Stay in Prison With Mothers?

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

Here’s a weird one out of New Zealand… A new bill seeks to increase the time imprisoned mothers spend with their babies from six months to two years. Supporters say that it will enable longer breastfeeding, which will give the kids a healthy start, and will also allow the mother and child to bond. They also claim that it will be an opportunity for the mother to reform, take responsibility for her child, and become a member of the community. Finally, they argue that some babies would be better off in prison with their mothers than with others out in the community. Hmmm… That must be one crappy community! Beyond that, I can’t say that I’m a big proponent of using babies as a tool to try and straighten out their wayward moms.
