Salma Hayek is a great personality and i like her attitude about breastfeeding.She showed her kindness by nursing the unknown baby.

I wish John Steinbeck were alive to read this piece. He'd feel totally at home with it. Remember how "Grapes of Wrath" ends? A mother who lost her own child breastfeeds a starving old man. Similar circumstances, different country - our own country, at another time, when widespread poverty and starvation were so familiar to us. Too bad our collective memory is so short. We'd be less inclined to sneer. Jerry Calnen

So Elizabeth, let me get this strait....... You're in favor of a child being condemned to a slow, agonizing death because it fits your moral view as opposed to a STARVING women having the right to terminate a pregnancy because birth control probably isn't available? Also she knows she will be putting any resulting baby into a tortured situation with no good outcome. Tell you what, why don't you head over to a 3rd world country and explain your view to them? Bring a lot of groceries while you're at it. Tell those kids who are on their deathbeds "But honey, you're ENTITLED to what you went thru! Aren't you glad?" Salma, great job. I would have done the same.

I enjoyed reading your article, Natasha. I commend Salma Hayek for giving of her time and energy for some very worthwhile causes. I have, however, always been perplexed about what I see as a lack of consistency to her views. For example, she saves a child from hunger and possible starvation with breastfeeding, and yet she consistently promotes "pro-choice" rallies and marches. If a child has a right to be free from hunger, doesn't a child also have a right to life?

Thank you so much for raising the issue of breastfeeding here. I breastfed my 2 boys until they were each 14 months old. I got pregnant with my second when my first was 10 months old and I continued breastfeeding for 4 months. While I was breastfeeding both of my babies, since I was a heavy producer, I shared my milk with other babies, first twins and then one single baby. It's a great pleasure to know that I helped my own babies thrive, but also 3 others when their moms were struggling with breastfeeding. There's nothing terrible about sharing your milk with other moms' babies. Our society has forgotten that we're mammals and that's what breasts do. 98% of all moms out there are physically and mentally able to breastfeed, and start their newborn’s life by doing it. There is no good reason to explain why so many stop, except the fact that they experience lack of support and societal pressure. It’s time to enpower women to make breastfeeding a first step in their baby’s life. Breastfeeding moms rule! Read the 10 things people don’t tell you about breastfeeding on my post at:

This is outstanding! I give her a round of a plause. I wish I could do something like this. It is simply amazing. I'm sure it was weird at first, but like she and you said, her baby will be so proud of her for what she did for this young life. Great post!

Selma is my hero. The mainstream public needs more role models like her.

*standing ovation to blogger & Ms. Hayak* I'd do the same thing. I'm currently pumping milk for a friend of mine with an adopted child with serious health problems, around breastfeeding my 3rd healthy son. It's a small way I express my gratitude for the blessings I have received in this life.

I think that there are so few instances of selflessness that people cannot believe it and have to tarnish an innocent gesture. so sad. What class and generosity she has! so rare in Hollywood...
