- Hayek Breast-Feeds Another Woman's Baby (Time.com)
"If anyone on the planet could convince men that breast-feeding moms can have a sex life, it would be Salma Hayek. The beautifully busty actress, on a trip to Sierra Leone to support a tetanus-vaccination project, nursed a starving baby she encountered while being filmed by ABC News.

"Over the last 30 years, it has become increasingly clear that breastfeeding is the best way to launch most children. As a result, the American Academy of Pediatrics now urges moms to breast feed for 'at least' a year, adding that up to three years is healthy."
"But studies show that six months later [after starting breastfeeding], only about half are still nursing. If you want to know one reason why, consider the experience of Emily Gillette, a 27-year-old mom from Santa Fe, N.M.,who made national headlines this month when she was forced off a commercial plane for breastfeeding."
"She has filed a complaint with the Vermont Human Rights Commission; Vermont law recognizes a womanís right to breastfeed as a civil right. The commission has the option of resolving the issue with the airline, or it could file a civil rights lawsuit against the airline. 'No matter what, itís a womanís right to breastfeed. Itís not anyone elseís right to decide for her,' Gillette says." 11-06
