For some reason, Summit Church in Springfield was unaware of the law or chose to ignore it.
While attending services, Annie Peguro tried to calm her baby daughter by beginning to breast-feed her. Then she was informed that she would have to leave the setting and go to a private room. There, since the service was being live-streamed, she could also continue to participate in the church activity.
The reason she was asked to breast-feed in private was, the church said, that it would make members of the congregation "uncomfortable."
Peguero, The Washington Post reports, fled Summit Church in shock. Soon enough she make her feelings known via social media. Her lawyer has contacted the church, requesting a change of its policy.
Peguero positions breast-feeding as a normal function. Therefore, goes the thinking, others better get over being uncomfortable with it.
