Massachusetts Governor Tries to Undo Ban on Parting Gifts for New Mothers

Massachusetts Governor, Mitt Romney, tried to undo a ban on giving gift bags of infant formula to new mothers as they left hospitals in the state. The ban was put into place because it was felt that these infant formula trial packages would discourage mothers to breast feed, which is almost always more healthy for the mother and the baby.

Romney seems to be acting on behalf of the infant formula companies, not his constituents.

This will be a good thing to remember when and if he begins a presidential campaign.
