U.S. Opposition to Breast-Feeding Resolution Stuns World Health Officials
 
I'm not exactly clear on why the US is declining to participate in a 'resolution', but I also don't see why it is so horrifying to other countries.

IMO, once again, it's a matter of choice. A government 'promoting' something doesn't do diddly squat other than telling those who are too dense to think for themselves, what they should be doing. Once the government gets involved in 'supporting, protecting and promoting' means that they are one step away from 'requiring'.

As it stands now, women who want to breastfeed, will. Those who choose not to, or for whatever reason, can't, won't. This does not require government involvement.

I did find this statement of interest:
Quote:

Washington is the single largest contributor to the health organization, providing $845 million, or roughly 15 percent of its budget, last year.
Something tells me that is actually the reason for their panic...

I'm glad the US didn't participate in the resolution mainly for the reasons you stated. In this country, there are no laws against it. Women are free to choose to do so if they wish.

As for the rest of the world, that is not our problem as I'm sure we have bigger things to worry about.
