Delta Airlines Forces Breastfeeding Mother Off Their Airplane

Via Moms Rising...

Delta Airlines recently gave a nursing mother a choice: cover your child with a blanket while nursing or get off the plane. The mother refused to cover her child while he was eating, which any woman who has breastfeed a child before knows can be uncomfortable for them. She was escorted off the plane! Sign the petition Moms Rising has put together to tell Delta how unacceptable their actions were.

I am a Delta flight attendant. I don't know the details of the situation in which this nursing Mother was removed from the flight.
But, I want you to know I would NEVER ask a nursing Mother to cover her baby. Flight attendants are nursing Mothers too. I pumped my breasts for 6 months while I went to work and flew a Miami-New York round trip 3 days a week when my daughter was an infant.
The actions of one flight attendant should not reflect on all flight attendants.
Thank you,
