Moms Angered as Breastfeeding Pics Banned on Facebook



The social networking site Facebook has sparked a large debate after recently removing pictures of women breastfeeding on the site. Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt said, "Photos containing a fully exposed breast (as defined by showing the nipple or areola) do violate those terms (on obscene, pornographic or sexually explicit material) and may be removed."

As photos are being taken down from the site, many breastfeeding advocates are furious, and have joined forces in a new group called Hey, Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene! (Official petition to Facebook) and nearly 100 thousand folks have joined the group in petition. Fifty-seven percent of lilsugar mamas said they took pictures while nursing, would you sign the petition? Or do you agree with the site's decision to take down the photos?
