Springfield, VA Mom Asked to Leave Church to Breastfeed

I can’t believe it’s 2017 and we are still dealing with ignorance when it comes to nursing mothers!

I breast fed both of my kids so this is a hot button issue for me. I chose to use a cover for MY comfort, but I totally understand that some babies don’t deal well with a cover, some moms just don’t want to use one, and they shouldn’t have to.

In many places, it’s actually against the law to tell a mother she can’t breastfeed. In Virginia, the law protects nursing mothers, and according to the Washington Post, there is no religious exemption from that law.

So why did a church in Springfield, VA tell this mom she couldn’t nurse during the service?

I’ll let her explain.
