i just read a news article about a mother in saskatoon who was refused a breast pump by police while being held in cells for 75 hrs. when i saw the headline, i was appalled but also wondered, “why is a breastfeeding mother in cells?”
turns out she had a drunken fight with her boyfriend.
the police are fucking stupid for not giving the woman a god damn breast pump, and she’s fucking stupid for drinking while breast feeding. too bad the article didn’t get into the latter.
lillian desjarlais needs a strong reality check.
