Aging in US Prisons -- a Grim Fate

Dear GAA Friend,
Our long-term colleagues at New American Media recently published a study about "Aging and Dying in America's Prisons" that I thought would interest you.  Due to increasingly long prison sentences, inmates are growing old in prisons and often face horrifying lives. What are their human rights to care? to health? to friendship? to kindness? 
What do you think?  Please comment.   Thanks, Susanne Paul for Global Action on Aging
