Taiwan is to protect the right of nursing mothers to breastfeed in public with hefty fines for those who try to stop them, as part of a campaign to promote the practice, officials said Wednesday.
The government’s Bureau of Health Promotion is drafting a bill that would impose a penalty of up to 30,000 Taiwan dollars (S$1,322) for anyone attempting to prevent breastfeeding in public, a bureau official said. The bill will require final approval by parliament.
This is fantastic. We eat in public. Nursing your child in public should not be forbidden.
