Great News for Helen, Winston and Peter

Law change would support breastfeeding – Newstalk ZB

Helen, Winston and Peter will be celebrating the introduction of the Infant Feeding Bill, which would give mothers the right to breastfeed regardless of where she is, without discrimination.

In her bill, Ms Chadwick is highlighting cases of businesses asking women to leave when they feed their babies. In one case, Te Papa staff asked a mother not to breastfeed in their library. In another a Dunedin cafe banned a group of breastfeeding women, claiming it displayed the wrong image to the public.

I don't know if we need a law for this, if i was a breastfeeding mother and some jerk told me to unlatch the leech and leave I would physically assualt them and give them the serious crazy eye to let them know they were going to lose.
