Wow! I was just informed of this interesting news story in our own “neck of the woods,” Forest Park, GA! (See link below)
Apparently Forest Park does not think breastfeeding a child over the age of 2 is necessary, but instead is indecent exposure and they have now passed a law stating that no one can breastfeed a child older than 2 years in public! What has the world come to? We can publicly display scantily clad models in the mall and on billboards for everyone to see and display all sorts of nudity on TV, but the simple act of giving your child some nutritious milk is now illegal because it is indecent exposure?? That is ludicrous! Breastfeeding exposes a whole lot less skin (and for an important purpose) than the media we are exposed to everyday! Who has the right to tell people when, where, and what age they can breastfeed?
