Should politicians tell hospitals to withhold baby formula to newborns?


The Mayor of NYC wants to make it a law for hospitals to keep baby formula under lock and key to encourage mothers to breast feed their babies.

    I agree. But the mayor said on the news, if it's not a medical reason the mother will be denied formula in the hospital. I know that breast feeding is the natural way, but it still should be the choice of the woman.

    This is how it was reported on the news last night. The law will take affect in September. I believe that breast feeding is a better option, but the choice should still be the mother's decision, not some law.
