Germany Must Do More To Protect Woman That Breastfeed

As things currently stand, breastfeeding in public in Germany is a tabu subject; women do not have any protection whatsoever and we, the undersigned, strongly believe that lawmakers must do more to fight this type of discrimination in public spaces.


Let us think of the following example: a woman and her partner are walking in a shopping center with a young baby; the woman needs to breastfeed, so they sit at a café – but that coffee shop could easily have them removed from the premises – all legally done! This is nothing short of discriminatory and unacceptable behavior. Restaurant or café owners should not be allowed to make individual calls on wheter a woman could feed her baby in their facility or not. This is not how society functions.


It is our firm belief that there is nothing offensive about a child eating; it’s the most natural thing in the world, actually. But due lack of protection, women no longer feel comfortable anymore while breastfeeding; since when has feeding your child become a crime? Why should they hide at home or force to go in unsanitary bathrooms to do so?


We, as a society, must understand that breastfeeding is the best and healthiest way for a child to grow up. Women should not be ashamed of it and society should stop discriminating these mothers.



Support my petition and ask German lawmakers to adopt new measures to legally protect women who breastfeed! Thank you!
