Michigan Governor Signs Breastfeeding Anti-Discrimination Act
There’s good news for new moms in Michigan. On Tuesday, Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation preventing discrimination for moms who breast-feed in public. When doing so, Snyder said “breast-feeding is a natural act with many proven benefits. By supporting new mothers we help ensure good infant health, reduce infant mortality rates and prevent obesity.”
The bills establish the Breastfeeding Anti-Discrimination Act which ensures women have the right to breast-feed in a public place and not face discrimination against them, and make sure that a mother breast-feeding mother is not guilty of indecent exposure or obscene conduct. The laws now align Michigan with 27 other states that prevent discrimination against breast-feeding moms.
