Women should have available to them a private, clean space for this. They should not be precluded from doing it wherever they want, however. Many women are forced to do it in the parking lot or in the bathroom which is unsanitary, demeaning, and embarrassing. The benefits to the child of mother's milk vs formula are pretty clear. Let's face it... These days both parents need to work to survive. Women should not need to stop breastfeeding or pumping because they have to work.
