    Doylestown advances public breastfeeding ordinance

    A unanimous committee vote last night advanced Doylestown’s ordinance to give women the right to breastfeed in public in the borough.

    Though Pennsylvania state law gives women permission to do so, the borough is considering making the act a right to prevent businesses from discriminating against breastfeeding women.
    According to Patch, if the ordinance passes, women who feel they’ve been discriminated against by a business can file a complaint with the borough and seek a resolution with a human relations officer.

    For the ordinance to go into effect, the Borough Council would have to amend its anti-discrimination policy.
