    Officer threatens to arrest woman for breastfeeding in public

    When it comes to breastfeeding in public, everyone has a right to their own opinion. But it’s quite another matter when an officer — someone whose job it is to protect the basic human rights of citizens — allows his personal opinions get in the way of the law. “Tonight while in Piggly Wiggly with my sister and both my children (the oldest 20 months and the youngest 1 month old today) while nursing, a deputy approached me right when I was about to leave and informed that I needed to cover up because someone might find it ‘offensive,'” shared Savannah Shukla in a Facebook post. Shukla lives in Georgia, a state where breastfeeding in public is legal and certainly not considered offensive.
