debbie riddle breastfeeding stance

Legislator’s on breastfeeding a PR stunt?

Tuesday, 12:28 PM, State Representative Debbie Riddle, made a statement that raised eyebrows and tempers of moms everywhere!

Riddle, made a statement referring to House Bill 1706 (written by State Rep. Jessica Farrar, and brought before a committee that same Tuesday). A bill looking to promote breastfeeding and prohibit interference with or restriction of the right to breastfeed in public. Meaning that all of these reports we hear of businesses, and others, asking breastfeeding mothers to, “cover up,” will be at risk of lawsuits.

Was this just all a PR stunt?

Riddle’s controversial Facebook post has generated over 70 “likes,” 300 shares, and 1,000 comments. Now even though the majority of responses have been in opposition of her stance,she has generated a ton of awareness for the presented Bill, her name, and all the other things and people she supports. One can’t help but to think that this may have been a publicity stunt…maybe gone wrong or exactly as planned.

She has since declined the media for commenting.

Debbie Riddle is a Republican, State Representative for the state of Texas. She resides in Houston and has been named Legislator of the Year by at least 2 separate organizations in Texas.
