Breastfeeding is a RIGHT!

Breastfeeding is a RIGHT


In Forest Park, GA, they passed a public indecency ordinance to prevent public nudity. In this a women is not allowed to breastfeed a child over two years of age in public.

First of all, this is completely ridiculous. Breastfeeding is a natural thing that can NOT be taken away by a law. No other mammals feed their babies another animals milk. Second of all, extended breastfeeders (as they are called) usually do not breastfeed in public. They only do in the morning or at night. And how are they going to monitor this law? Is a police officer going to go up to a women and say, "Um ma'am can I see that child's birth certificate?"

I personally will MOST likely not breastfeed past two at the most. But the government can NOT tell me whether I can or not. Boobs are meant to be bottles for babies. They were made to make milk. All mammals do it. I know I say that all the time. But it is normal to breastfeed. There is nothing wrong with it and should not be shameful!

  4. I really hate to see the local government attempt to take the right to breastfeed away. Over two or not, it is every mother's decision. Have you heard of any other ordinances elsewhere in Georgia?

    I live in South Georgia, where the local hospital doesn't even have a lactation consultant, so I fear something similar has been set up near me.
