Here's the copy paste of the original from Welcome to Circle of Moms

I do not think it's right to go after these moms.


I was reading some articles online where a few moms were getting arrested because they took pictures of themselves BREASTFEEDING! I don't know where to post this, but it seems like every mom should know about these arrests and these are ridiculous! One article is about breastfeeding, another one is taking picture of a child in the bath. I was supposed to post this on the Debating Mums community, but everyone should be aware.

Just needed to share this.

every breast feeding mom has a pic of them doing it and every mom has a pic of their kid in the tub or naked full of food after just eating or after they took their own diaper off or whatever. nude baby pics and kid pics have been around since we have had cameras available for everyday home use. I really don't see what the problem is.

i agree, it's just crazy. i think they should go after the real threats than moms who love their children. i hope they don't consider 3d ultrasound inappropriate just because children are naked inside the womb. i come from a culture that has considers breastfeeding very important.

I heard about that grandma and her pictures of the grandchild in the bath a while ago..personally I wouldn't be comfortable having a stranger develop pictures of my children in the bath..thats what digital is for...although i do have pictures of my kids in the bath on my face book (set to friends only) i think if the person who developed the pics felt they were inappropriate they had every right to contact the police..

I joined this group because apparently face book is removing photos and disabling accounts of people who post pictures of themselves breastfeeding.

I’ve seen far more offensive pictures of people drunk doing skanky poses and spewing etc. Breastfeeding is beautiful and normal and should not ever be labeled obscene
