Although female prisoners and even women’s advocacy groups fought hard against the state of California to not proceed with a new pro-transgender law that would allow all women’s prisons to accept women who were born male, Governor Gavin Newsom had a different approach to protect women. It actually involved handing out condoms and pregnancy resources. Again, both inmates and women advocates informed Newson and his administration how bad the idea was. This included fears of sexual disease, pregnancy, and abuse. And as if they looked into the future, a female inmate is reportedly pregnant, and if you were wondering – it was from a transgender inmate.
Since the new law went into effect in January, the state of California has been swamped with more than 300 requests to transfer. Even more interesting, not a single request that has been processed, which is 20, was denied.

Speaking out against the new law, the Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) asked, “How do we feel safe in our community? When we reach out for help we get nothing. There has been an assault on a woman and we still are silenced. Does anyone care that we are being forced to house with 6’2, 250+ lbs men with penises that are here for brutally raping women? We have been warned by the officials in this prison, more are coming with worse charges. Where is the safety concern for us? If we say we are in fear, we are the ones locked up.”
Wanting to spread the word about the threat female inmates are facing, WoLF tweeted the news about the female inmate becoming pregnant. “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 added, “Our connections tell us that at least 3 of the men have now been moved to Administrative Segregation.”
Our connections tell us that at least 3 of the men have now been moved to Administrative Segregation. (Because this is private health data, we're not currently able to confirm any more than this.)

WoLF was also sure to point out who is truly responsible for the danger inmates are facing. “When will @Scott_Wiener & @GavinNewsom admit that this was a mistake?. 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?”
