Freedom to Breastfeed

            Finally! Idaho and Utah are the latest states to approve legislation of breastfeeding in public, finally allowing for all 50 states in the US to have public breastfeeding officially legalized. The milestone is one to be celebrated, though whether the general stigma of the act of breastfeeding in public spaces will follow suit is yet to be seen.

 

 

            One of the male representatives from Utah reportedly had complaints about the specific wording of the bill, he claims it “seems to say you don't have to cover up at all,” and continued saying, “I'm just not comfortable with that, I'm just not. It's really in your face.”

 

 

            With just one example of the thoughts behind one man in a position of power behind the new law, it proves that the way breastfeeding is currently viewed in the public eye will not go away any time soon. Regardless, the change made is progress, and we can only hope that the freedom and right to feed babies in public will continue to move forward in the future.
