LANSING, Mich. (June 24, 2014) — Gov. Rick Snyder Tuesday signed legislation that protects women who breastfeed their babies in public from discrimination.

The Breastfeeding Anti-Discrimination Act allows women to file a civil action against businesses that ask them to leave because they are breastfeeding, according to the Kent County Health Department, which supports the legislation.

The legislation also prevents women who nurse their infants in public from being charged with indecent exposure or obscene conduct.

    The researchers have also studied a special gene variant that impacts heavy smoking: The smoking gene has no influence on whether you start or quit smoking. But if you do smoke, the gene will make you smoke more. People who have inherited the gene variant from both their parents smoke 20 percent more than those without the special gene variant.

    Smokers have as much right to the air to smoke as any non-smoker have a right to breathe the air! Non-smokers don’t own it we all use it like everyone else…………

    Even the cars use the air, restaraunts, cookouts, fireworks along with cooking at home and each and everyone of those things including non-smokers releases hundreds and thousands to millions of the same chemicals found in that same cigarette smoke!

    So go outlaw yourselves under the same pre-text as you used for smoking you HUMAN CARCINOGEN MACHINES!

    We are all guilty of tobacco smoking in the same way they claim it via chemical exposures and production only second hand smoke is tens of billions of time less than in the quantities produced from all other sources of the same things they claim cause death and disease.
