I saw this posted on another board and wanted to x-post. A city in Georgia has just passed a law outlawing NIP for children over the age of 2. Here is the info:

Forest Park Restricts Public Breast Feeding - News Story - WSB Atlanta

If you are opposed to this law, there is a nurse-in being organized on Monday, as well as an online petition you can sign. Here is the info on them:

Nurse-in: ‘Lactivists' stage nurse-in to protest Forest Park law limiting breast-feeding | ajc.com

Petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/rep...forestpark-ga/

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

I signed the petition and I'm pissed. That's all for now.

How asinine. What makes it okay for say, an 18 month old, but not 2 year old? What are they going to do, go around asking people how old their toddlers are?

Ugh, the ignorance of breastfeeding saddens me.

That is just so beyond stupid. Do we really need to be wasting money on this? Aren't there better things we should be spending money on? Sheesh, stay out of people's bras would ya!

I saw the NIP debate and wanted to debate, dang it for being locked

I would totally go to the nurse in if I wasn't so far away.

I don't get it. Why would there be a ban on nip a child over 2. Some people have nothing better to do with their time than to make stupid laws.
