Public Breastfeeding Is Finally Legal in All 50 States

After two historic rulings in Utah and Idaho, breastfeeding in public is officially legal in all 50 states, People reports. Utah lawmaker Curt Webb initially expressed "modesty" concerns surrounding the act of breastfeeding in public, telling The Salt Lake Tribune, "This seems to say you don't have to cover up at all. I'm not comfortable with that, I'm just not. It's really in your face." Ultimately, the state passed a bill simply stating that women are "permitted to breastfeed in any place of public accommodation," with a vote of 66–5.
