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.

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.”
