Principal illegally asks mother to cover up or leave

This "tastefully written" letter was given to a local mama by a worker at the federally funded free lunch program at the middle school. Utah law permits and protects breastfeeding regardless of if you are covered or not, full breast exposure is allowed. Yes, we live in a very modest community due to the majority being LDS, but breastfeeding is not immodest or immoral. Church pictures show mothers clearly nursing during meetings uncovered! Local mamas who may have missed this, we are supporting Andrea today at 11:30 at Mount Logan Middle School (wish I could be there!).

How the mama was breastfeeding, not showing ANYTHING!

If you would like to write a letter, there is contact information at the bottom of the article

I saw a post with this letter In a group I'm in on Facebook. They were talking about possibly doing a nurse in and many emailed the principle about the laws.

The law protects the nursing mother.  That is all that matters. The nursing mother was showing less than what I see a local pool.

In this case, there is a signed letter to prove the principal illegally asked the woman to cover up or leave. The law protects her, end of story.

It's on their website. I'll go on later and watch it.

I read some of the comments on ABC's facebook page, and Wow! It is just so sad how ride and ignorant people are.
