I do not watch Dr Phil. While I support everyone's right to their opinion (even strong opinions, strongly expressed), I don't care much for the philosophy of verbally beating someone into submission. I also don't believe that what is right for some celebrity doctor should, by default, be what is right for me.
As many of you know, I am an advocate of breastfeeding. I am currently very active in a Yahoo breastfeeding group and at some point plan to do some volunteer work in support of breastfeeding and breastfeeding moms. So, this little tidbit from Dr Phil's website was not a welcome sight.
So Dr Phil, the ultimate authority on all things, does not care for a debate on nursing in public. He simply wants to invite moms onto his show so that he can bring in their embarrassed friends and family members and hold a little intervention! What a guy! I'm sure he also believes babies are just short, bald adults who should be given chores and responsibilities immediately after birth.
