Keeping Federal Inmates and their Families together approve Conjugal Visits and Family Time

A conjugal visit is a scheduled period in which an inmate of a prison is permitted to spend several hours or days in private with a visitor, usually their legal spouse. While the parties may engage in sexual intercourse, the generally recognized basis for permitting such visits in modern times is to preserve family bonds, and increase the chances of success for a prisoner's eventual return to life outside prison. Additionally, they serve as an incentive to motivate inmates to comply with the various day-to-day rules and regulations of the prison, to avoid any infringement which might disqualify them from having a conjugal visit.

Family is the most important thing when serving a sentence for a crime. With out communication by letters, phone calls, and visitation; Inmates would be more aggresive and violent against each other and officers. I believe that if state prisons allow conjugal visits for married inmates that it would be logical to allow those types of visits in federal prisons as well. This type of bonding promotes healthy relationship and moral. Federal inmates have to serve around 85% of their entire prison sentence. Where as state prisons usually serve 50-65% and get conjugal visits, and gain time for good behavior to get early release. Since this is not the case for federal inmates, then why not pass a bill to allow conjugal visit for federal inmates. The question of whether or not prison is intended to rehabilitate - rather than to merely punish - deserves the scrutiny of all Americans who might one day be affected by the answer. Yes, many agree that it would be a privilege to have these visits when incarcerated. For those who believe that isolation is a way of rehabilitation I would like to say there is absolutely nothing rehabilitating about restricting inmates from intimacy with their spouse. If the visits should require monitoring to be considered safe then, in my opinion, by all means monitor. Conjugal visits will allow for longer, faithful marriages and healthier relationships. Honestly I think that every inmates case is different and conjugal visits should be considered accordingly. Please sign this very important petition. Thank you for your time and consideration.

The United States of America the richest country on planet earth and the US government the Federal Bureau of Prisons does not permit conjugal visits but yet countries like australia, brazil, canada, denmark, france, germany, israel, mexico (allows gay married couples), pakistan and saudi arabia have conjugal visits whatever the rumor is that the feds stopped it because and inmate murdered his wife during one of the visits i have not found any information to support that there was a case in germany that a mental disturbed inmate murdered his wife if that is true that didn't stop the german government from allowing other inmates that qualified and met the guidelines to be punished for what one metally ill person did the chances of that happening are very slim.
