Where Do You Stand? Public Photos of Breastfeeding

Whether you're for or against breastfeeding, moms all over the world are nursing their babies, many are doing it in public, and some have even posted pictures of themselves breastfeeding on Facebook. It turns out that Facebook isn't OK with that and has placed a ban on posting such photos on its site. If women ignore the rule, Facebook will take the pictures down. The social networking site claims to have no problem with photos of women nursing but simply won't allow photos "containing a fully exposed breast." To hear more, check out this video clip from MSNBC.

A group called the Mothers International Lactation Campaign (MILC) is so outraged by the ban that they're planning a demonstration on Dec. 27 right outside Facebook's Palo Alto offices. They're also asking Facebook users to join the "virtual nurse-in" by making their profile photo a picture of a woman breastfeeding.

This is a pretty heated topic, so what's your opinion on public displays of breastfeeding and taking photos of the act? Share your thoughts below.
