Taiwan to protect public breast-feeding. Cool...

Taiwan is to protect the right of nursing mothers to breastfeed in public with hefty fines for those who try to stop them, as part of a campaign to promote the practice, officials said Wednesday.

The government's Bureau of Health Promotion is drafting a bill that would impose a penalty of up to 30,000 Taiwan dollars (940 US dollars) for anyone attempting to prevent breastfeeding in public, a bureau official said.
