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!
