Women protest GA city's breastfeeding rules

FOREST PARK, Ga. (AP) - More than 100 women showed up at Forest Park City Hall to protest an ordinance that places restrictions on breastfeeding.

The women at Monday's protest were showing their displeasure with an ordinance passed two weeks ago that bans breastfeeding children over 2 years old in public.

In addition to the protest, the women used a Facebook page and an online petition to spread the word.

Forest Park City Manager John Parker says the ordinance is aimed at other nudity issues. He says council members will revisit the issue at their next meeting.
