Mom Debate: Should women have the right to breastfeed wherever they'd like?
"People have the right to eat wherever they want, and babies should have that same right." --Janice Kutt, Red Hill, PA
"We moms who nurse cannot be expected to stay home 24/7 for fear that our babies will get hungry in the 'wrong place.'" --Christi Kopp, Maud, OK
"God gave us breasts to feed our babies. Since they're attached to us, we should be able to feed our babies whenever we need to! Also, we take along snacks for our older kids to eat when they get huntry -- we don't wait to feed them until we're home." --Brooke Small, Escondido, CA
"Why would you want to be in a public place during a time when you should be tender and loving? This is precious time with your baby. I don't see why the busiest of women can't find a private area away from strangers' prying eyes." --Kathy Lumia, Trenton, NJ
"'But it's natural,' women cry. Childbirth is natural, too, but you're not going to do it in a restaurant, right? Keep it private." --Annie Rumary, Crestine, CA
"I'm sorry, but I really do'nt want to have to see a bare breast flipped out to a red-faced, crying baby." --Anne Maroney, Columbus, OH
