Establish Better Protection for Breastfeeding Mothers

Our mission is to establish legislative change for the State of Georgia with a comprehensive breastfeeding law. Currently Georgia state law allows a mother to nurse her child anywhere that mother and child have permission to be, but there is no enforcement provision. A law without enforcement protects no one. New comprehensive breastfeeding legislation would provide for action against anyone subjecting a nursing mother to harassment or discrimination in violation of the current state breastfeeding law, as well as protection from all indecent exposure laws. Please see the petition letter for more details.

      Breastfeeding should be encouraged and should not have to hide away as if they are doing something wrong!

      I am expecting and I want to be able to feed my child anywhere I am and pump anywhere I am so that my child will be healthy.

      I plan on breastfeeding. Jesus was breastfed! I don't understand what the big deal is. Should we really be having this discussion?....
