Babies Behind Bars in South Africa

Many of them are barely old enough to crawl.  And they're learning to walk by grabbing on to the cold steel bars of a prison cell.  Robyn Curnow filed a heartbreaking BackStory from inside a Johannesburg prison, where more than two dozen children are being raised by their imprisoned mothers.

Robyn talked with Michael about what it was like, as a mum to two young children of her own, to report on this story.  And she explains why she believes the prison babies are actually better off than some of the South African children living outside of jail.
