Something we can do to support BFing...

I just received this in an e-mail from my midwife....thought I'd share:

Can you believe a woman was recently kicked off a Delta Airlines flight for discreetly breastfeeding her child!? Here's an article on it: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15720339/?from=ET
*SIGN THE PETITION TO SUPPORT BREASTFEEDING: http://www.momsrising.org/breastfeeding-petition
Join me in telling Delta Airlines to get a clue and be supportive of breastfeeding mothers; and also in telling Congress it's time to pass the Breastfeeding Promotion Act, which amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to protect breastfeeding mothers. Clearly this law is needed now!
And, I hope you'll also join me and tens of thousands of others in one of the most exciting grassroots movement on the Internet: MomsRising.org.
SIGN ON WITH MOMSRISING AT: http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia...longsignup.dwt
MomsRising.org (http://www.momsrising.org) is working to build a massive grassroots movement big enough to impact the outcome of the 2008 elections and beyond. The time has come to break the logjam that's been holding back family-friendly legislation for decades. It's going to take all of us--and then some--working together to get there.
Thank you

I'd refuse to cover my child with a blanket too!

i don't think discreet matters. the man who chews and talks with his mouth open is never escorted off of a plane. maybe the baby or mom is clausterphobic and a blanket would be too much. it doesn't matter! breasts feed babies. arms hold babies. we don't require women to cover their arms. society has got to de-sexify breasts!
