So, I am unsure as to why Delta employees are stating that nursing must be done discreetly. That is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of a large company doing, in light of recent media attention. You would think that they would be "backpedaling" all over the place!!
Just wondering something here. All the people who have always received positive attitude about BF while flying: how old were your babies??
My youngest is the only one who has wanted to BF for so long, and negative looks and comments have increased the older he gets. I believe that if her baby was not almost 2, they would not have made such a big stink about it.
i got a call today from the reporter in vermont, who read me the quote from freedom. i want to be very clear with all of you. i was NEVER invited back onto the plane. i begged to be let back on, i cried about getting stuck in burlington. i have witnesses who gave me their names, who SAW the entire conversation between me and the COPILOT (not the pilot). i am so absolutey crushed that they would try to turn this into MY fault and MY choice and i need to be so clear with all of you women that the latest statmenet out of Freedom is the most horendous thing for me, emotionally, to date.
This will all come out in the wash. I gave the reporter in Burlington the names of the witnesses and she is out tracking them down. So, keep your eyes on the burlington free press, and help me get the word out that these people have LIED and soiled my word and i am devastated. i can't express more passionately the feelings that this has brought up.
again, after that rant, i want to thank you all for the bottom of my heart. today is a tough day for me. but, more than ever, i feel this Fox interview tonight is crucial. They cannot get away with lying about the incident. awful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
National Nurse-In Scheduled! Fri Nov 17, 2006 3:16 pm
In solidarity with Emily Gillette...
...nursing mothers and other lactivists across the nation will be meeting up at 10am on Tuesday November 21st in front of Delta ticket counters (or any counters owned by Delta's parent company Mesa-Air Group, including US Air and United) for the first National Nurse In!!!!!!!!
Because more education is needed to prevent mothers from encountering this kind of discrimination. It's about time nursing mothers are protected at the federal level. Let Vermont lead the nation!
Vermont’s Public Accommodations Law, 9 V.S.A. 4502, reads as follows:
Sec. 4502. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a mother may breastfeed her child in any place of public accommodation in which the mother and child would otherwise have a legal right to be. (Note-it says nothing about "discretion")
I'm looking looking for other NM moms who want to participate.
P.S. I'm not nursing anymore but still want to show up in solidarity.
Dinosaur_Mommy, you might want to join the ABQ moms thread on FYT (I am including the link), since some of us are talking about going...
