‘Family values’ conservative Josh Moore said on Facebook he should be allowed to grab the breasts of breastfeeding mothers if a law banning women exposing breasts in public didn’t pass.
New Hampshire state Republican Josh Moore soon after deleted the comment.
In 2015 Moore sponsored a bill that would make it a crime for women to expose their nipples in the state.
“Purposely exposes the areola or nipple of her breast or breasts in a public place and in the presence of another person with reckless disregard for whether a reasonable person would be offended or alarmed by such act.”
It is currently legal in New Hampshire for both genders to be topless in public.
New Hampshire State Rep. Amanda Bouldin took to Facebook to criticize the bill and call out her male, Republican “small government” colleagues. That’s when things got awkward.

“Who doesn’t support a mothers right to feed?” Moore responded. “Don’t give me the liberal talking points Amanda. If it’s a woman’s natural inclination to pull her nipple out in public and you support that, than you should have no problem with a mans to stare at it and grab it. After all, it’s ALL relative and natural, right?”
Moore identifies himself as a “pro-family” lawmaker who “love God, Country, guns and family.”
