The corporatocracy against children

I wish I could say I don't believe this, but I do.

U.S. Opposition to Breast-Feeding Resolution Stuns World Health Officials


A resolution to encourage breast-feeding was expected to be approved quickly and easily by the hundreds of government delegates who gathered this spring in Geneva for the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly.

Based on decades of research, the resolution says that motherís milk is healthiest for children and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes.

Then the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations.

We just keep giving the world more and more proof of just how low and repugnant our society has become.

Pathetic.

We're owned by the Trump cartel.

It's a classic the have vs. the have nots.

In this case, the haves are telling the have nots to do something that makes money for them but it's bad for their children.

Probably there's no regulation preventing this.

Free-market capitalism.

Do we have any regulations left in America beyond those that protect big business?

I saw this article yesterday and simply could NOT believe it. How could ANYONE with a straight face and clear conscience seek to dissuade people from breast feeding ?? IT WHAT BOOBS WERE MADE FOR !!! When you consider this administration is filled with people from the religious right, people who claim to believe in "intellegent design", it's seems even more at odds. If we were created by God, then God put boobs on women SPECIFICALLY for the feeding of our children, then doesn't it stand to reason NOT breastfeeding is going against God's intentions ??

They've never been about religion or morals in the first place. That should be very clear after the last election.

I guess you didn't see this the first time. The Feminists are claiming that breast feeding is not natural. Does that mean the govt is following the Feminists mantra? Is this proof that you'll do anything to get on the opposite side of any issue? Even your own Feminist friends?

He just can't keep from lying.



Bull shit. Look at the resolution. There was nothing in it to interfere in any way with mother's access to formula.

This move is purely to increase US infant formula manufacturer's profits.
Thanks from tristanrobin and Camelot
