The Seattle City Council is taking up an ordinance that would protect the right of a mother to breastfeed her child in public.

The proposed Seattle law would make it illegal to ask a nursing mom
to stop, cover up or move to another location. It would apply to areas
open to the public, including stores, doctor's offices, restaurants and

It's already against Washington state law to discriminate against
public breastfeeding, but advocates say the Seattle proposal would make
it easier to enforce the law. Numerous states have laws that
specifically allow women to breastfeed in any public or private
location.The council is expected to vote on the issue today.
