    Michael Trosclair, 45, and Shari Treba, 42, both face felony neglect of a dependent charges, along with misdemeanor public intoxication charges. Authorities say the pair were in town for a work conference when a witness reported Treba drinking alcohol while breastfeeding a baby outside a downtown bar. According to a probable cause affidavit, around 12:38 a.m. June 16, officers from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called to Wild Beaver Saloon at 20 E. Maryland St. on a report that a woman was breastfeeding an infant while drinking alcohol, as well as soliciting customers for beer.

Peguero, a personal trainer and military wife, said a church official told her: 'We don't want to make a man uncomfortable in church,...

    A local council has been ordered to pay damages after taking a week-old baby into care because the father expressed “unorthodox” views about the need to sterilise feeding bottles. A family court judge awarded the couple and their son, who is now 15 months old, a total of £11,250 after ruling that Kirklees Council had breached their human rights and misled a judge in a bid to remove the child from their care. The case, which has cost the taxpayer around £120,000, centered on a couple in their mid-twenties, who cannot be identified. They both suffer from mild learning difficulties...

    Adolf Hitler once said, “Give me five years and you won’t recognize Germany anymore.” Well, we’ve given Barack Hussein Obama seven years and you can’t recognize the US Army anymore. The Obama Administration is literally carpet bombing the military on a daily basis with directives, memos, policies and doctrine that if they weren’t actually happening would be considered to be something out of a Kafkaesque, Gloria Steinem nightmare. Today, I examined a Memorandum for Record, dated September 20, 2015 and signed by the former Secretary of the Army, John McHugh. You remember Secretary McHugh, he’s the guy who dodged and...

"We are not Google. We are not Walmart. We're war fighters. But that doesn't mean we should not be challenging ourselves just like the private sector," Carter told reporters at the Pentagon.

    Today, my former boss, a retired Army Intelligence officer sent me a copy of a memorandum for record concerning the US Army’s most recent lactation and breastfeeding policies, signed by the new Secretary of the Army, Eric K. Fanning and dated November 10, 2015. My first reaction was to pop a couple Tums even before starting to read it. As I scanned the document, I realized how far the Army has fallen on its sword. The sword of feminism, the sword of lunacy has completely eviscerated the lean green machine, so that it is the US Army in name only...

I mean we have truly done it this time... (emphasis added in bold is mine) Nursing parents are typically referred to as "nursing mothers" or "women who nurse."

    About two weeks ago I linked to a piece from the Christian Post entitled "Women at Risk: Abortion and Breast Cancer [ABC] Linked." It reports, "Of the approximate 74 research studies conducted on the ABC link since 1973, 58 show a direct connection between increased breast cancer rates and induced abortion. All of these studies were conducted by international medical organizations. A more recent study, conducted by a research fellow at Johns Hopkins University, also supports the ABC link." ...No less than The New York Times, ABC News, and the Atlanta-Journal Constitution (AJC) have, in the last few days, reported...

    Donald Trump became disgusted and walked out on a female lawyer needing to pump breast milk for her daughter while testifying over a failed Florida real estate project, documents of sworn testimony reported by The New York Times show. "You're disgusting," Trump reportedly told Elizabeth Beck when she asked for a medical break for her 3-month-old, taking out her pump to emphasize urgency. The 2011 conversation is said to be not disputed by either side, but Trump's lawyer Alan Garten said his client's reaction had nothing to do with her decision to pump. "It was solely the fact that she...

    Ames claimed that on the morning she returned from a two-month maternity leave in July 2010, the company refused to let her use its lactation rooms because its policy required mothers to complete paperwork seeking security access and wait three days for processing. She had been unaware of that requirement. A company nurse suggested she use a wellness room that was occupied at the time, but also cautioned that doing so might expose her milk to germs. Ames said she was in pain while waiting for that room to be vacated, when her supervisor informed her that she would be...

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Mothers who give birth in areas with higher concentrations of African-Americans are less likely to get breastfeeding support on maternity wards than mothers in other communities, a new study shows. Breastfeeding provides well-documented health benefits to infants and their mothers. But African-American women are about 16 percent less likely to nurse their newborns than white women, according to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    A court in Al-Rass near Madinah has issued a verdict separating a couple after finding out that they had been breastfed by the same woman, local reports say. The separation order comes 25 years after the couple were married and blessed with seven children. The judge issued the verdict on the basis of a religious edict issued by Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh, media reports said. According to a saying of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), “Breastfeeding makes forbidden what is forbidden by blood relations.” It means that even if a man and woman are not related by...

    A woman who had hoped to promote her family-owned business at the National Restaurant Association trade show over the weekend was instead driving back to her Minnesota home Sunday. Kristin Osborne was escorted out of the exhibit hall at McCormick Place on Saturday, she said, because she was carrying an infant. Osborne, 31, knew about the trade show rule that does not allow children under 16, she said, but did not think it would apply to her sleeping, 10-day-old baby wrapped closely to her chest. Osborne left her two other children, ages 2 and 4, at home, but said she...

    (JNS.org) Breastfeeding can significantly reduce the risk of children getting cancer, says a new study conducted by Israel’s University of Haifa. According to the study, children who were breastfed decreased the chances of developing cancer by 60 percent. “We asked the mothers in the study about breastfeeding, nutrition, exposure to pets, exposure to detergents, etc.,” said Dr. Keinan-Boker, a professor in the University of Haifa’s School of Public Health and deputy director of the Israeli Health Ministry’s Center for Disease Control. Additionally, the study compared children who were exclusively breastfed up until four months old with children who stopped being...

    New mom faces ARREST because she took son she's breastfeeding to jury duty when there was no-one else to care for him. A Missouri woman is to face court this week for bringing her new born child to the courthouse for jury duty because she was breastfeeding. Laura Trickle, of Lee’s Summit, delivered her daughter Axel in March and was breastfeeding when she was called for jury duty in August. She asked to be exempt from appearing, as she was breastfeeding, but received notice that she must report to court to fullfill her civic obligation and serve jury duty, according...

    A mother in China was pulled over by police after allegedly breastfeeding her baby while driving a moped through the streets in Yuzhou, Henan province. According to witnesses, the child, about 18-months old, was crying as the mother weaved through traffic. "So she suddenly lifted up her T-shirt, whipped out her breast and started to feed him on the move," said one driver. A police spokesman said "She was risking her life, her son's life and the lives of all the other road users...We told her that if she carried on we would confiscate her bike."
