Three things, first, let's be honest here. If the original family had kept quiet about what happened, never told people their story, asked for public outcry, brought in lawyers, etc., this policy would have continued unquestionably. Unfortunately, sometimes it takes public pressure to make change (or hold companies to state law as in this case).
Secondly, I think the public (who does make so many donations to this organization) has the right to know if the organization is practicing illegal (or at least unethical) policies. I, for one, would never donate another cent to the organization until I receive some assurance that they're respecting the rights of a mother to feed her child a scientifically proven/superior healthy food. I only give money to organizations that I can feel good about, and who share my same values - and I think that is my right as a donor.
And finally, if we never stood up for ourselves when we were wronged, laws would never change, victims would never see justice, and those who do the wrong would continue in their ways. How sad. Think of the larger implications here.
