Babies Behind Bars: The Honduran Prison Where Children Live With Their Incarcerated Mothers

Submitted by: fancylad 2 weeks ago in Lifestyle


There is only one prison in Honduras that holds only women. The Penitenciaria Nacional Femenina de Adaptación Social, based in Tamara. It holds 700 female prisoners and is the only facility in the country where infants can live with their mothers. The prison is home to 49 children, and six more babies on the way. This is what happens to the kids when dad's already in jail, dead, or gone, and mom gets sent to prison. Photos: Christina Simons

I bet these kids end up better than the alternative. Having no parents can be worse than being in jail with your momma.

Great. Can just imagine what the kids are like when they grow up.
