Please read the article (and many, many comments) below, though I recommend securing any objects that you might be tempted to throw at your computer.  Some of the comments against this woman are just awful.

Or watch the clip on Fox8 News out of Cleveland:

If you are on Facebook, show your support by "Liking" this cause:

It's sad that Ohio law so clearly protects our rights to NIP and yet there is still this kind of backlash and harassment going on.

The Normalize Breastfeeding and Nursing in Norwalk group has registered for the Big Latch On.  Here is the info:

More Info
http://www.biglatchon.org/​index.html

Registration starts at 10 am. All babies must be latched on at 10:30 and stay latched for one minute to count. 

Come spend a day here in Norwalk. Bring the whole family. Visit our farmer's market that will be going on from 9 am until noon on the front lawn of St. Paul Episcopal Church right on Main St. After the Latch On, stop by one of our uptown eateries for lunch and browse our shops on Main St. Spend some time at our city poo to cool off. Finish up your day by going to the St. Paul Festival at St. Paul Catholic Church on Main St. Make it a fun filled day!

Even if you are not a breastfeeding mother, please come and show your support.

If anyone knows how to contact this Mother, she needs to call the Ohio Civil Rights Commission, and file a formal complaint against them.  They are currently the ones who handle cases of discrimination against Breastfeeding Mothers, as that is where the law currently falls under for jurisdiction.

 

This is obviously a continued problem.

 

Furthermore, Ohio law does not, in its definition of the crimine indecent exposure, include the exposure of a Female's breasts.  If needed I can find a Supreme Court from Ohio to back this up, as I have found it once before.
