U.S. Won’t Back Breast-Feeding Resolution

“A resolution to encourage breast-feeding was expected to be approved quickly and easily by the hundreds of government delegates who gathered this spring in Geneva for the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly,” the New York Times reports.

“Based on decades of research, the resolution says that mother’s milk is healthiest for children and countries should strive to limit the inaccurate or misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes.”

“Then the United States delegation, embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers, upended the deliberations.”


We are galloping to the point where every other nation on earth just treats us like the drooling uncle in the corner at the party.

Totally bizarre and to what end, what are they doing and at who's request? Health & Human Services it seems.

 

U.S. Opposition to Breast-Feeding Resolution Stuns World Health Officials

 

American officials sought to water down the resolution by removing language that called on governments to “protect, promote and support breast-feeding” and another passage that called on policymakers to restrict the promotion of food products that many experts say can have deleterious effects on young children.

 

When that failed, they turned to threats, according to diplomats and government officials who took part in the discussions. Ecuador, which had planned to introduce the measure, was the first to find itself in the cross hairs.

The Americans were blunt: If Ecuador refused to drop the resolution, Washington would unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid. The Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced.

I just posted this - I'll delete my duplicate post. I can't figure this one out unless the Enfamil lobby got involved

Always follow the money.  Especially with the Trump Crime Family.

All I could think of was the lawyer who trump attacked during one of his many discovery hearings, because she was breast feeding. On the other hand, I doubt he would be interested in any form of US policy, unless someone told him to be interested. It's bizarre, maybe they are now just seeing how far they can go, testing the waters.

The Immigration Gestapo ripped several infants from their mother's arms while breastfeeding.  It's like a wartime poster defaming the viciousness of the enemy come to life. 


Edit to add that one child was returned after about three months covered with lice and apparently hadn't been bathed at all.  (source)

When this is finally over, the people responsible for these atrocities - from Trump down to the "caregivers" at the kiddie jails all need to be tried for crimes against humanity.  It will be the only way that the US will ever be able to clear our reputation before the world as well as our collective conscience.  I'm dead serious - Nuremberg 2.0.

I remember it well.  And there were toxins in rawhide pet chews.  We still make certain to only get treats from US sources.
