At Least One CA Inmate Is Reportedly Pregnant After New Law Allows Trans Inmates In Women’s Prisons

This year, women’s groups have been sounding the alarm that a new California law allowing inmates to request transfers to facilities that correspond with their gender identity could place female inmates at risk of sexual assault.

These calls for action have mostly fallen on deaf ears when it comes to California leadership — however, the Central California Women’s Facility apparently responded by making condoms and pregnancy resources available, as The Blaze reported.

This, WoLF said, amounted to a “tacit admission by officials that women should expect to be raped when housed in prison with men.”

One inmate told The Los Angeles Times that they’d been warned by prison guards to expect sexual abuse once inmates were transferred to their facilities from men’s facilities. According to the newspaper, over 300 requests for transfers have been made since the new policy went into effect in January.

None of them have been denied, and around 20 have been processed so far.

WoLF has now reported that according to their contacts inside CCWF, at least one woman, possibly more, is now pregnant after being housed with the recently transferred inmates.

“We have now heard from seven different people inside CCWF that at least one woman, possibly more, is now pregnant after being housed with a male felon who was transferred to the women’s prison under SB132,” the group wrote on Twitter last week.

“Our connections tell us that at least 3 of the men have now been moved to Administrative Segregation,” they also wrote, adding that they were unable to confirm any of the reports.

One inmate told the Santa Monica Observer that there were multiple transgender inmates who had been transferred to the facility that were fully intact and had been sexually assaulting women.

The prisoner, Amber Jackson, noted that “when you have man, with a penis, that works as it was designed to do, that’s a problem in a women’s prison group shower room. That’s a problem.”

WoLF has been issuing calls to Governor Gavin Newsom and the author of the bill behind the newly enacted policy for transgender inmates, state Senator Scott Weiner of San Francisco, both Democrats.

“How many more women need to be raped in California prisons by men who should have never been there? How many babies born to incarcerated mothers before you hear their cries?” the group asked the Newsom and Weiner, tagging them on Twitter.
