Breastfeeding Mothers Plan Nurse-In Protest

Breastfeeding in Lubbock is now gaining national and even international attention. That's because the American Civil Liberties Union and Birth Without Boundaries International is organizing what they call a "nurse-in protest."

ACLU President Vince Gonzales says, "Basically, it's nursing mothers who show up at a particular location with the intent of nursing as a means of protesting a policy or practice."

Last month, city management stopped Lahib Jaddo from displaying two paintings at the Buddy Holly Center. One is a nude woman and the other shows a mother breastfeeding her child.

The city later apologized and said it is working on a new policy. But organizers say they still feel nursing mothers were discriminated against.

Friday, nursing mothers will take their protest to the Buddy Holly Center.
