There's a bill on the governor's desk (that she's planning to sign) giving women the right to BF anywhere that they're otherwise entitled to be. Anywhere! Go Kansas!<br><br>
The new law takes effect in two weeks.<br><br>
I'm feeling pretty proud of my little ol' state today!<br><br>
(The new law also makes nursing mamas exempt from jury duty. Even better!)

My family is friends with a certain member of congress. I actually debated points with him about this bill-While breastfeeding in front of him! I've never seen a face so red! (Or a man trying so hard NOT to look at breasts!)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>

A local radio station was hosting a "discussion" about this earlier today. Basically everyone was saying how revolting it is to see a baby breastfeeding. I'm glad this law was passed but it seems like everyone around here is still stuck in the dark ages. I wrote a letter, but, SIGH...it's kind of depressing to know so many who see me nursing are disgusted by it. I guess it just gives me more incentive to NIP as much as possible and be not-so-discreet about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
