Breast feeding in public

It's your call

April 02, 1991

Controversy arose last week after a photograph of Deborah Norville breast feeding her infant son appeared on the pages of People magazine.

Norville's peers in the electronic news biz disparaged the decision to breast feed in public. "A serious newswoman does not do this," one snipped.

The Norville swirl does raise a point, though: Should women routinely breast feed in public? And, further, are you uncomfortable when they do?

To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL, the Baltimore Sun's directory of telephone information services at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) today until midnight.

After you hear the greeting, you'll be asked to punch in a four-digit code on your touch-tone phone. Enter Category 4600 and you'll be connected with "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's survey on topical issues.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Look for results in Wednesday's Evening Sun.
