“We have now heard from seven different people inside CCWF [Central California Women’s Facility] that at least one woman, possibly more, is now pregnant after being housed with a male felon…”
The Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), a self-described radical women’s group, claimed a California inmate is pregnant after a law allowed the state to house biological men with females.
“We have now heard from seven different people inside CCWF [Central California Women’s Facility] 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,” WoLF tweeted.
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.)

Around 216 inmates requested a transfer after the law went into effect on January 1.
WoLF reported on July 15 the CCWF had pregnancy resources and free condoms to prepare for SB132:
New posters recently appeared in medical rooms outlining the options available to “pregnant people” in prison, including prenatal care, abortion, and adoption. The poster also declares that women have the right 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.” However, the only methods available to incarcerated women to prevent pregnancy are condoms, which appeared shortly after the men, and Plan B emergency contraceptives. (Full poster text, as reported to us from inside).
By the time of the report, almost 300 people requested a transfer.
“So far, only about 20 of the transfers have been processed (and exactly zero transfer requests have been denied) — leaving hundreds of men, many of whom are sex offenders, awaiting entry into the women’s estate,” noted WoLF.
WoLF accused the prison of not being able to prevent violence against women inmates:
The prison has been unable to prevent or stop sexual activity between male inmates housed with incarcerated women, though. Sources tell us there have been incidents of sexual assault, as well as illicit sexual activity between the male inmates and women, putting the women at risk of pregnancy and disease, including HIV, as well as increased risk of disciplinary actions that can affect chances of parole. Avoiding the negative consequences of sex between males and females is, of course, one reason why prisons are single-sex to begin with.
“The nearly 300 pending transfers are only the beginning of the invasion of women’s prisons by violent male inmates, including convicted murderers and rapists,” WoLF warned.DONATE
