A Woman’s Right to Choose (Not to Breastfeed) - Gayle Tzemach Lemmon - the Atlantic
It is strange. Somehow we have reached a point where people who speak angrily of the “war on women” when it comes to family planning do not hesitate to exercise suffocation of choice when it comes to breastfeeding. Breastfeeding has gone from being an ideal option for new mothers to a mandatory prerequisite for “good” parenthood.
If the sole determining factor in all this is “what is best for the baby”, then father’s need to be “advised” and “encouraged” to breast feed as well. It is more than possible.
