To Whom it May Concern:
As a member of MomsRising, I’m writing to urge you to stop putting the health of mothers and babies in jeopardy by lobbying against public health efforts.
The New York Times recently published a piece detailing how the Trump Administration attempted to weaken a resolution at the World Health Assembly that was meant to “protect, promote and support breastfeeding.” Public health must always be prioritized over corporate interests and profits. The benefits of breastfeeding are tremendous. Breastfeeding helps protect babies from illness and helps moms heal following childbirth. Breastfeeding also leads to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes and certain types of breast and ovarian cancer. Breastfeeding isn’t just good for moms and babies; it’s also good for our country’s physical and economic health.
We urge you to put the health and well-being of moms and babes above corporate profits.
