A Texas lawmaker is under fire after she voiced opposition to a bill protecting women breastfeeding in public because she said mothers should be "modest."
Republican state Rep. Debbie Riddle spoke out against the legislation, which The Texas Tribune reports would ban restricting a woman's right to breastfeed in public, in a post on her Facebook page.
"Now, I am all in favor of breast feeding — however it is important for women to be modest while feeding their baby — and most women are modest and respectful," Riddle wrote on Facebook. "But, a bill that would allow for lawsuits if one 'interfered' with a woman breast feeding is really going a bit far. If a business owner objects to a woman who is not being modest then be fearful of a lawsuit is government out of control."
