Breastfeeding In Public Finally Legal In All 50 States! | Care2 Causes
Breastfeeding in public places is finally legal in all 50 states, just now, in the year of our lord Beyoncé 2018. As with all things relating to women’s bodies, people have a lot of feelings.
Recently, Utah and Idaho passed laws legalizing breastfeeding in public, making them the last two states to enact such laws. Though the legislation is clearly on the right side of history—and literally every other state had done so already—the change did not come without a fight and a whole lot of Puritan outrage, particularly among male lawmakers.
In Utah, Republican Rep. Curt Webb complained during a hearing that the law could lead to immodesty.
“This seems to say you don’t have to cover up at all,” he told the Salt Lake City Tribune. “I’m not comfortable with that, I’m just not. It’s really in your face.”
