SCRIPT: Hello, My name is ____________ and I am a constituent from ( CITY/ZIP CODE).

I care about breastfeeding families in Michigan and I am asking (Representative/ Senator ____________) to protect the breastfeeding provisions that were part of The Affordable Care Act, section 4207, also known as the “Break Time For Nursing Mothers Law”. The proposed American Health Care Act, the ACA replacement, makes no mention of maintaining a working mom’s right to take break time from work to express milk-  and to do so in a place that is privatesafe, clean and not a bathroom. I advise (Representative/ Senator ____________) to consider the health of working mothers and babies and to fight to maintain these breastfeeding protections that benefit Michigan families and businesses.

Learn More about the "Break Time for Nursing Mothers Law" that was created as art of The Affordable Care Act.
