A report by NJ ADVANCE MEDIA confirmed that two female prisoners at a New Jersey prison, are both reportedly pregnant by the same transgender inmate. A prior settlement caused the prison to change its policy against housing female and transgender inmates on separate units.
The incident happened at the Edna Mahan Women’s Prison located at 30 Route 513, in Clinton, New Jersey. The prison is currently reported to be housing 27 transgender inmates at the facility. Edna Mahan is the same prison that recently made headlines, when 15 prison guards were arrested for a numerous criminal charges committed at the women’s prison. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has already said that he will be pushing to have the prison closed. Murphy made the statement about closing the prison when the guards were arrested months ago.
