Texas Republican Says Cover Up When You Nurse

In tonight's special show we are covering breaking news. Republican Representative Debbie Riddle said yesterday in a Facebook post:

House Bill 1706 was brought before a House Committee today – it is about breast feeding. Now, I am all in favor of breast feeding – however it is important for women to be modest while feeding their baby – and most women are modest and respectful. But, a bill that would allow for law suits if one “interfered” with a woman breast feeding is really going a bit far. If a business owner objects to a woman who is not being modest then be fearful of a law suit is government out of control. Most of our laws and bills being considered for law would not be necessary if people would simply be considerate and thoughtful of others. Needless to say – I am not supporting this bill.
I will be discussing this with Sara Chana Silverstein IBCLC-RH. This statement has caused quite a lot of furror on the internet. Pitting moms against one another..
