Bloomberg is such an asshole!
Mayor Bloomberg is pushing hospitals to hide their baby formula behind locked doors so more new mothers will breast-feed.
Really?! Blocking the accessibility of formula to new mothers? For some women, they are not able to produce milk with their pregnancy. Some, even though they are producing, aren’t producing enough colostrum and therefore are starving their child. I wonder if they will charge the mother with child abuse if the pharmacy is closed and the baby wants to feed?
Legislative fiat and nanny statism does not change biology or the way the real world works.
Women don’t need a lecture about choosing formula over breast-feeding. Breast is not always best. Especially since not every mother produces enough milk. My husband was raised on formula because his mother was unable to produce milk as he was born by C-section. A friend of mine didn’t produce milk for her child and didn’t realize it until she had starved her child for a day not knowing she wasn’t producing enough milk.
Some asshat politician who doesn’t understand biology or the medical sciences has no business telling me, my doctor, or any one else what is best for me or my child.
This is one big reason why I don’t want to be in a hospital when I have kids. I don’t need some moron telling me what to do with my own body!
If you’re female and work in his office, do the rest of us of the female gender a big favor and kick him right between the uprights. Then again I’m reasonably sure he’s lacking functional equipment down there which is why he’s spouting off about shit he doesn’t know about.
