Michigan Is One Of Five States That Has No Law That Allows Public Breastfeeding…Is It Time [VIDEO]
Michigan is one of five states that has no law to protect the right for moms to public breastfeed.
And a battle is heating up in Lansing right now raising questions about a mother's right to breastfeed her baby in public. There's a bill under consideration that would change that. The bill was introduced in December.
Almost every state in the country has a law that allows public breastfeeding. Advocates said it's time Michigan got on board. The bill would prevent discrimination in public against breastfeeding women.
Michigan's breastfeeding bill has passed in the state Senate, but for the past five months it's been on hold in the House Judiciary Committee. Lawmakers still have questions about how the bill could impact businesses.
