How do you get someone to do a certain behavior? You make it favorable for them to do that behavior. Instead, currently, it is most unpleasant to breastfeed as a working mother. Sure, there are places that make it easier than others, but the truth, the gritty day-to-day casserole for dinner making truth of it is: it's hard as hell to keep nursing once you return to work. The logistics are a nightmare.

At what point is it your job or your government's responsibility to make it easy and convenient for you to procreate? It's entirely your responsibility to make sure that the life you are bringing into this world is brought up in the best way possible. It's not up to your employer to make it easy on you.

Honestly, and I'm going to get a lot of crap for this, but I don't care. If you can't afford to take a few weeks of unpaid leave to PUSH A HUMAN BEING OUT OF YOUR VAGINA, then you shouldn't have gotten pregnant.

I have no problems with mothers in the workplace, but why should they have license to disrupt the working environment for everyone else?
