Nanny State News: New York City Now Regulating Baby Formula

Nanny Bloomberg strikes again!

Mayor Bloomberg has demanded that hospitals stop handing out baby formula to persuade more new mothers to breastfeed their babies.

The New York City health department will monitor the number of formula bottles being given out and demand a medical reason for each one.

From September 3, 27 out of 40 hospitals in the city have agreed to the terms of the Latch On initiative — which will also see them stop handing out free bags of formula and bottles.

Although mothers who want to bottle feed their babies will not be denied formula, it will be kept under lock and key similar to medications.

However any mother who requests formula will be given a lecture on why breastfeeding is better by hospital staff.

Who the hell do these liberals think they are? They feel entitled to tell you what you can do with your own land, what kind of light bulbs you can have, whether you have an analog or digital TV, whether you can allow people to smoke in your business, what medical treatment you’re allowed to have via Obamacare, how big of a soda you can buy, and whether or not your wife uses breast milk or formula.

Is there any teeny, tiny bit of minutiae in our lives that these people who are supposed to be working for us don’t feel entitled to control?
