According to William Sullivan, president of the union that represents most reformists in the state of New Jersey, these pregnancies are not surprising. “In 2019, we foretold this when we filed a restraining order to prevent prisoners identified as transgender from being transferred to the women’s facility,” he told the Daily Mail. “We were warned that this would probably end badly, that is to say in pregnancy.”
Latonia Bellamy, in her speech, says that within the walls of the Mahan prison, the culture of rape is everywhere. But she defends Demi: “I was not raped. I was not forced to do anything I did not want to do. Although it was not allowed, I fell in love and had consensual sex with a transgender person. However, sexual relations are forbidden in Edna Mahan.
“I did what was natural to every human being. We formed a natural and genuine bond that allowed me to receive a lot of support, understanding and love, “he continues.” Will the barbed wire wither behind the barriers? “
Since then, Demi, Ladonia and the third prisoner involved are now in solitary confinement.
