Woman Ticketed for Nursing at Park

Rocky Mountain News reports that a woman visiting Carter Lake in Colorado was ticketed by a park ranger for (discretely, in fact) nursing her baby, allegedly violating a local ordinance against "knowingly (exposing) one's genitals in a public place". The citation violates Colorado's year-old statute protecting a woman's right to breastfeed in public. Though the ticket was dismissed, it apears she is still awaiting an appology. Thanks to Natural Family News for the article.

Story from Denver Channel 7.
