How can we mandate mammaric modesty?

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

The other day, I was sitting in the park and I saw the most disgusting thing. A woman was feeding her hungry baby.
OK, I know how that sounds, but it was really horrible. There I was, enjoying a pleasant afternoon in the sun, and the next thing I know, this woman picks up her kid, pushes her blouse to the side, and shoves her baby’s face up against one of her breasts. He was lapping it up like a piglet. 
Boy, if that doesn’t turn your stomach, I don’t know what will!  Sure, no one wants a baby to go hungry, but couldn’t she have the decency to find some deserted area of the park, or maybe go into a nearby building and do that in the bathroom?  If a woman can’t afford infant formula, she shouldn’t be out in public to begin with, right?
Really, we need some laws to address stuff like this!
Oh wait, we do have laws like that. Forty-eight states protect the rights of a nursing mother to breastfeed her child in public.
West Virginia and Idaho haven’t yet seen fit to join the civilized crowd.
The human race has been raising babies on mother’s milk since forever. But then in 1867, Justus von Liebig invented infant formula, and “decent society” quickly threw a modesty blanket over nursing mothers.
