Wisconsin senate passes breastfeeding in public law!

Ok, so it still has to pass the assembly and be signed by Governor Doyle before it is "for real" but WTG Wisconsin for finally taking a step in the right direction!

Current Wisconsin law simply states that it is not a crime punishable by law to breastfeed in public, which offers no protection at all.

The NEW law will make it a crime to harass a breastfeeding mother! Punishable by a $200 fine!

WTG Wisconsin senate! Let's hope the Assembly is as smart!!!

It's about time!
