Breastfeeding mom told to leave Texas City pool receives worldwide support


This session, the Texas Legislature considered a bill that would have made it legal for a mom to sue any place that did not allow her to breastfeed on the basis of violating her civil rights. That bill died in committee, but it’s getting renewed attention after what happened in Texas City.

This week, Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law that like breastfeeding, a mom has the right to express breast milk, pumping in any location she’s authorized to be.
