    “We were shocked because we didn’t understand how such a small matter like breast-feeding could provoke such a dramatic response,” said the Ecuadorean official, who asked not to be identified because she was afraid of losing her job.
How can such a small matter as breast-feeding provoke such a dramatic response?

Yes, obviously the edits to the resolution are directed by corporate interests. I also see it as part of the many ways legislative bodies involve themselves in controlling women.

Some countries ban women's face/head coverings. Some countries INSIST on certain body/head/face coverings for women.

I imagine there are countries where men must where a hat -- or are there?

Abortion? Well you know. By the way, Argentina just legalized abortion last month. I'm wondering if this was widely known by you.

ooops fell down the hubski-rabbit-hole again. and it's filling with water. I'll need to swim out.
