This is from today's Columbus Dispatch:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">For the first time, the Ohio Civil Rights Commission has found probable cause that a woman was discriminated against for trying to breast-feed.</td>
</tr></table></div>
The case involved a woman who was breastfeeding her infant at a LifeStyle Fitness Center and was told by a manager that if she didn't go to a locker room instead, she'd be asked to leave.<br><br><a href="http://dispatch.com/dispatch/content/local_news/stories/2007/04/21/breastfeed.ART_ART_04-21-07_B1_226F2FL.html" target="_blank">Here's the full link.</a>

This is a really important decision! If this is upheld, it may mean that Ohio has the toughest NIP law in the country.

How terrible! I can say from first hand experience that is not the case at all Lifetime Fitness locations. I have been a member there for 7 years and have nursed my kiddo there plenty. In fact, the infant room at both locations I attend has a chair in there specifically to nurse children.<br><br>
So so sad!

I just caught that article and was going to post it! Woo hoo! I'm so relieved because I'm moving to the area this week and was going to choose between that gym and a local gym and decided to keep my money local. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Not that I have kids to breastfeed, but I wouldn't want my money going to them!
