Breastfeeding Mothers Protected from Discrimination and Prosecution

Gordon Law Group

In Michigan this week, bipartisan legislation was signed protecting mothers who nurse their children in public from discrimination and prosecution. 45 states now have some form of law allowing women to breastfeed in public or private locations.

The “Breastfeeding Anti-Discrimination Act” allows a woman to breastfeed a child in any public place. Public places include, but are not limited to, shops, restaurants and public buses. Any woman who is denied this privilege can file a civil suit claiming damages up to $200 for discrimination. Other changes in the legislation include the banning of signs prohibiting breastfeeding and ensuring mothers cannot be charged for indecent exposure.
