Public has rights, too

I would like to know where "the right to breastfeed in public" is written in the Charter of Rights. The thing that the people who are so stong about breast feeding anywhere anytime are missing, is that other people have "rights" too.

I would like to know where "the right to breastfeed in public" is written in the Charter of Rights. The thing that the people who are so stong about breast feeding anywhere anytime are missing, is that other people have "rights" too. So if you are asked when you are in a public place to please be more discrete then have some manners and respect for other people out there. This couple was not asked to leave the restauraunt or to even stop feeding, they were asked to be more discrete. Yes, unfortunately the trend in fashion, movies and music is to show as much as possible until that changes and until breasts are not primarily looked at as something sexual, then we are at a stalemate. How about the breast feeding groups go after the major industries first and try to change them and leave the poor little guy who owns a Pizza Hut in Prince George alone. Just one last note to the parents who started all this. You are in charge of a new life now. What do you want to teach him? What kind of adult do you want him to be? One who says that "I am the most important person out there and everything I feel/think/do is right," or do you want one who can appreciate others feelingd, values and points of view?
