Nurse-In at “The View”

For all my NY, NJ and surrounding area readers … There will be a “nurse in” at a taping of The View.

Monday, June 6th, 2005, at 11 a.m.
the corner of Columbus Avenue and 67th Street ABC Studios New York City

Among other incidents: Barbara Walters has repeatedly denigrated mothers who nurse their babies in public, and states that millions of babies have been raised on formula and they’re just fine, implying that breastfeeding advocates are ill-informed. Elisabeth Hasselbeck claimed to have been harrassed at Disney by sling-wearing La Leche League leaders while pregnant with her child, which led to all the hosts bashing breastfeeding advocates (and which also led to a response from LLL, which was not pleased to have been slandered) as nuts. The final straw? On yesterday’s show, the hosts made “a big announcement” – Elisabeth’s month old baby has been put onto formula, which was applauded as a huge, wonderful, happy milestone.

“The View” has made it clear that they regard breastfeeding parents with contempt. Spread the word on the nurse-in – let them know that enough is enough.

Ps – I didn’t write the above information – I’m just passing it along.

    All that wemon have worked so hard for, to be heard, respected and appriciated as a women have come so far and this women whom I have respected talks as if she is anti-women. She sounds like an obnoxious man. Here we go, back to the drawing board having to fight for human rights on whether we can feed our children in public. The view and there guest expose there breast as if they are for sexual gratification only. going farther the view supports breast implants but not a loving natural act like breastfeeding. SHAME ON YOU VIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
