If you see a woman sitting in a public area with a baby held to her breast, don't stare and get excited. But don't complain about her indecency to management either. Blagojevich signed the Right to Breastfeed Act on Monday saying that mothers have the right to nurse their babies in public. 68 percent of newborns in Illinois are breast-fed and they often get hungry at inconvenient times and mothers don't have to worry about making their babies go hungry till they can find a disgusting bathroom stall. Wait till the FCC finds out that women across the state are whipping out their breasts in public, with children present. Oh, the damage that will be done to these innocent minds.
