Angry Mothers Stage Mass Breastfeeding Protest in UK

Earlier on this year, a 25-year-old  mother of 2, Wioletta Komar, was kicked out of the premises of a Sports Direct store in the UK for breastfeeding her 3-month-old son. She had been sitting on a bench inside the store waiting for her father who was trying on T-shirts, when a member of staff suddenly marched over and told her that breastfeeding mothers were not welcome because of 'company policy'.

Some 70 mothers showed up yesterday at the Sports Direct store where the incident happened to show support for Mrs Komar, while also defending their right to breastfeed in public places. Organiser of the protest Leah Gibson said:We're here today to stand up for breastfeeding women and their right to feed their children in public without being asked to leave places. We just wanted to show everyone that we can feed in peace, without showing everyone our boobs. It’s shocking that we've still got this sexual ‘thing’ about boobs.'

Breasts were made to feed and nourish a child. Only 1 per cent of the population can’t physically feed their child this way so when you look at it like that, it shows you what they are for. 'Some mothers say "oh I don't want to feed my baby because my boobs are for my partner". No, they aren't - they’re for your child.' The group spent around 15 minutes in the shop and organisers confirmed there were no issues with Sports Direct staff on this occasion.

  1. Yes! Boobs are for the child, the partner is secondary.

  2. Breastfeeding can only be offensive to indecent minds
