Babies in prison

It's your call

April 10, 1991

About three dozen women give birth each year in Maryland prisons. Their babies are separated from them after birth and given to relatives or foster families to care for. Some states, such as New York, have special prisons where women can keep their babies with them for up to 18 months. Do you think Maryland should have such a facility?
