More on breastfeeding in public - the definitive last word

I couldn't put it any better than the Sydney Morning Herald's correspondent, Richard Scully of Invergowrie. Sane and balanced, this "bloke" puts it very simply
"Koch also seems to think that this is a debate where one can ''agree to disagree'', and that one opinion is as good as the next. He is wrong. This is not, nor has it ever been, about mere ''opinions''. It is about civil rights and the law: Australian women have the right, endorsed by bipartisan political support, and upheld by the majority of citizens - to breastfeed in public wherever and whenever they so please. To ask them to stop, or refuse them service, is to act unlawfully under the Sex Discrimination Act (1984), quite apart from displaying a breathtaking impertinence and lack of courtesy."
More comments in much the same vein - gratifying to read!
