Moms says breastfeeding is not obscene

A group of people nationwide are using a Facebook page called, "Hey Facebook, Breastfeeding is Not Obscene," to persuade the social media site to change its stance on breastfeeding pictures.

It was started by supporters of breastfeeding and serves as an online petition to get Facebook to change its rules about pictures showing mothers breastfeeding. Facebook doesn't allow those pictures under certain circumstances and will remove them.

But on the page mothers are encouraged to post their breastfeeding pictures anyway, just to make a statement and to try and normalize the image of breastfeeding..

The group's page has more than eight thousand members. The group also started a petition to get Facebook to allow all breastfeeding pictures.

Supporters on Facebook say nursing moms are everywhere and have a right to show their nursing pictures. They hope Facebook gets that message.
