Doylestown meeting will address rights of breastfeeding moms

    Things are sure to get interesting at Doylestown Borough Hall tonight.

    That’s where a law will be discussed to protect the rights of breastfeeding moms.
    Patch reports the borough council is considering making breastfeeding moms a protected class, just like race, gender and sexual orientation. A mom would then be able to file a complaint if, say, she were asked to leave a restaurant for breastfeeding her child.

    Language in the current state law gives women “permission” to breastfeed in public, but not the right.
