Minister supports breastfeeding mother

first_imgOtago Daily Times 26 Oct 2012Justice Minister Judith Collins says she cannot think of “anywhere” breast-feeding can be considered “offensive”. She could not comment on Judge Kevin Phillips’ decision to eject a Wanaka woman from the Queenstown District Court on Tuesday for breast-feeding her child, but as a mother who had breast-fed a child, Ms Collins said “it’s better to feed a child than let a child cry”. “I obviously can’t comment on what judges do in their courts … [They] are the masters and mistresses of their courts,” Ms Collins told the Otago Daily Times yesterday. “But I would have thought that most people are not offended at the sight of a mother breast-feeding a little baby and I can’t think of anywhere this is considered to be offensive. “There is nothing … unusual about it; they should be congratulated.” The ODT yesterday reported Judge Phillips had questioned why there was “a baby being breast-fed in my courtroom” when Catherine Owen, of Wanaka, started breast-feeding her 18-week-old daughter in the court. Ms Owen was in court supporting her partner, who was due to appear before Judge Phillips.….Human Rights Commission media spokesman Gilbert Wong said the commission supported any woman who chose to breast-feed her child in public or at work, but courts were exempt under a section in the Human Rights Act 1993. Law Society president Jonathan Temm said breast-feeding in the public gallery of a courtroom could be a “catalyst” to angry scenes in an already tense environment. Mr Temm said the Law Society did not have a view on whether women should be allowed to breast-feed in courtrooms. But he added it absolutely respected a judge’s right to determine what was appropriate in his or her courtroom.http://www.odt.co.nz/news/queenstown-lakes/232043/minister-supports-motherlast_img read more
