California Dishing Out Condoms To Female Inmates After Newsom Forces Them To Live With Men

Female prisoners in California are being dealt contraceptives, including condoms and Plan B according to reports from the non-profit Women’s Liberation Front. Pregnancies, abortions, and contraceptives are allegedly happening in women’s prisons after Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill last year mandating women live with transgender men.

Newsom approved the far-left initiative last September, signing SB 132 into law. The law says prison officers are required to probe into whether an inmate identifies as “transgender,” “intersex,” or “nonbinary,” and take steps to allow the inmate to request a transfer with inmates of the same sex they claim to be.

Following the passage of SB 132, there were approximately 300 inmates who requested a transfer, according to the Los Angeles Times. The outlet estimates that 1 percent of the state’s prison population, 1,129 people, do not identify with their original sex.

According to Women’s Liberation Front, a non-profit that advocates for traditional sex and opposes pro-transgender legislation, female inmates in California’s largest prison have described the new conditions as “a nightmare’s worst nightmare.”

Prisons are displaying posters in medical rooms describing women as “pregnant people,” and advertising access to “contraceptive counseling and your choice of birth control methods by a licensed health care provider within 60-180 days prior to scheduled release date.”

Women’s Liberation Front described how pregnancies were “vanishingly rare” in female state prisons prior to SB 132. However, one such reported case and “possibly more” was reported to the group in August.

Last month, female inmates claimed they are now “prey to men” due to the new law. Amber Jackson, an inmate, wrote in the Santa Monica Observer, that it is “a disgusting time to be in prison” nowadays due to “transwomen” possibly carrying “communicable diseases.” Jackson’s op-ed also claims three of the four males she references are HIV-positive.

“What kind of human being would intentionally cause harm by placing a number [of] HIV-infected, anatomically male prisoners among the female prisoners?” Jackson wrote. “Nobody is making this known. Nobody cares about us. We are in danger here. Make no mistake.”

Julie Haff, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Republican Party, told The Federalist that this is another failure of Newsom and his policies.

“How is this protecting women — even if they’re in prison? It’s not,” Haff said. “There is nothing to prevent some man in prison to say he identifies as a woman. What if he’s a serial rapist? How do you handle that? We need to protect the women in prison who are vulnerable.”
