I saw on the news this morning a report about a women who was breast feeding in a fast food restaurant. She had gone to the back of the dinning room after receiving her food, and started to breast feed. Shortly after the manager of the store asked her to breast feed in the bathroom. When she refused he kicked her out of the restaurant saying that it was 'indecent exposer' to breast feed in public. The woman got a lawyer and made a formal complaint to the company. She received a 'generic' apology letter. It seemed to 'be a letter that they send to anyone who complains about the quality of food ... did not address the fact that she was complaining about her treatment not the food.' Besides the letter of apology, that seemed insulting at best, the company has done nothing else for this woman. The manager was not reprimanded in any way and was not even asked to apologize to the woman. Should the company do more?

No one says HOW much of her boob was showing.
It's not a civil right to breastfeed!
actually, it IS a protected legal right, and she can also BF ANYWHERE she and her baby legally have a right to be.
