The landlord wants to throw out the Oklahoma mother for breastfeeding on her porch.

Missy Smith was told by the manager that if there was another complaint, he would issue an eviction notice, even though mothers are legally entitled to breastfeed in public under state law.

To make things worse, Smith spoke to a police officer who allegedly told her that if the baby was unwilling to be nursed under a cover, Smith would have to breastfeed inside.

“It makes me angry,” Smith said to Yahoo. “I am angry with the woman I spoke to at the police station who told me I would have to cover or stay inside, and I am angry at the neighbors who think it’s OK to stare — and then constantly complain.”

After Smith showed the landlord the Oklahoma law granting her the right to breastfeed, he withdrew the eviction threat.

    This very natural act upsets some people? They’re the ones that are weird.

      They try to turn breastfeeding into pornography. They are the problem, not the mother.

    I wonder how many women cow towed to the ‘authority’ and bowed to the demands that she breastfeed in private. Smart enough to find and show the law to the idiot that didn’t know better, good for her.
