My wonderful conservative friend Charcie and I send emails back and forth lamenting the idiotic crap that passes for politics and ideas these days. (Charcie is a lady--she didn't say "crap"; I said "crap".) So she sends me a reference to a progressive moms blog, to an article by Melissa Bartick, MD, MSc and Marsha Walker, RN. The article is entitled "Breastfeeding Needs to Be Part of Healthcare Reform." I about blew a gasket! Here's the response which I almost added to her blog, but then realized, why not add it to my blog, where someone will actually read it.
What kind of woman doesn't know about breastfeeding? Honestly, there aren't enough real problems in this world, you need to be creating one? I've met many, many, many people in my life, and NEVER have I run across some moronic woman who didn't know that breastfeeding was a way of feeding her baby. Jeez, Louise, find a real problem.
So now we're supposed to search for these people who must be living in a cave, yet with formula and bottles (how does that work?) and waste more of MY TAXPAYER DOLLARS introducing them to their breasts!
Thanks. Needed to vent.
