Breast feeding

Some people find the sight of breast feeding repugnant, and the usual way that makes the news is with a story like this: Breastfeeding 'upsets diners'.

In the spirit of "man bites dog," this more unusual headline caught my eye: Woman Pleads Guilty in Drunken Breast-Feeding Case.
The crime is child neglect, and the issue is that alcohol passes through the breast milk.
"Attorneys believe it's the first such case prosecuted in North Dakota."
