Michigan Mom Kicked Off A Bus For Breastfeeding!

Afrykayn Moon was nursing her two week old son Zomon when the FEMALE driver told her to cover up or get off. When she refused, the driver arranged for security guards to board the bus and question her!

Other moms in the area are so outraged by the way she was treated, they’re gathering to protest — by organizing a breastfeeding ‘nurse-in!’

“I had him in a football wrap. She wasn’t seeing much,” Mom Afrykayn Moon says of the frightening confrontation which took place this week in Taylor, Mich.

Afrykayn stood her ground and her treatment has spun into a major media debate across the US.

Reassuringly, everyone seems to be outraged by the driver’s actions, including her own bosses, who have suspended her; fellow passengers who say “we weren’t offended” and even a Michigan senator who insists it’s NOT ILLEGAL to breastfeed on a bus!

Senator Rebekah Warren even plans to reintroduce legislation to protect women from discrimination while breast-feeding in public.

But angry Afrykayn isn’t satisfied. She’s rallied together members of her Black Mothers’ Breastfeeding Association to stage a ‘nurse-in’ at the bus company’s headquarters on July 1.

What do you think HollyMoms? Did you breastfeed in public? Did people complain? Perhaps you think moms should be more modest and nurse in private!

Weigh in!
