Polygamist News

Although I will reserve my judgment in regards to this case until all the facts are known, I do have a problem with this.

A breastfeeding mother is making a choice that is in the best interest of her infant. In this situation, is the court system acting in the best interest of these babies? Couldn't they find a solution that both protects these nursing babies from the risk of harm but still allows them to receive what is definitely the best feeding choice for them?

I've been reading that blog as well, and I grimace whenever I think about what's happening. Because while I'm sure there are some great foster homes out there, and foster-care is sometimes better than the home situation, the foster system (at least in KS) leaves something to be desired.

And this particular decision seems heartless. Sure, it will be a pain, but let's at least try to find a way to let breastfeeding happen.
