Take Your Breast Fed Child to Work Day October 20; Support Sarah Palin
by O
Sarah Palin has opened up the workplace to all mothers and all babies.
Palin, as governor of Alaska, took at least two of her children to work and breast-fed them while at work.
Mothers and babies belong together.
Sarah Palin and John McCain recognize the need for mothers and babies to be together. Mrs. Palin obviously believes mothers at work should still be allowed to care for their babies and children, including breast feeding a baby at work.
The Republican party is the party of family values. They do not want to separate mother from baby.

You won't have any legal issues. There are no laws preventing mothers from taking breast-fed babies to work.
If your employer questions your decision, you need to point out the example of Sarah Palin. Ms. Palin was Governor of Alaska but she knew a mother should be allowed to take her baby to work. And to breast feed that baby at work. Now Ms. Palin is the Vice President nominee for the Republican Party. If your boss is upset, please point out there are no laws prohibiting you from breast feeding your child at work. Sarah Palin and the Republican Party believe in the family and family values. Sarah Palin has provided the example for all employers by breast feeding her children at work.
If Sarah Palin can do it in the governor's office, shouldn't all women be able to do it in any workplace?

I am trying to decide what the flag for the Breast-Feeders United Coalition would look like, and the possibilities are making me laugh! At any rate, I actually know of a few workplaces that are very breast-feed-friendly. My friend Randi had a pumping/feeding station in an office she worked at- so she only had to tote her own attachments instead of the whole pump, or could feed a baby in privacy! So, thought I imagine they are few and far between, there are a few places that get it!
