More than 100 breast-feeding women and their supporters say they are planning a protest over a new public indecency ordinance passed by a Georgia city that limits breast feeding in public.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that demonstrators will hold what they're calling a "nurse-in" on Monday in front of the Forest Park City Hall.
Officials said the city council passed the ordinance this week, and it allows for breast feeding only for children under 2.
City attorney Robert Mack Jr. said the ordinance is aimed at public nudity, not breast-feeding.
Jessica Lister, a Griffin mother who breast-feeds her 19-month-old son, launched a Facebook campaign about the law. She says more than 130 people, some from as far as Alabama, plan to participate in the protest.
