A New York Times article published this week says the Internal Revenue Service has ruled that breast-feeding does not have enough health benefits to qualify as a form of medical care, meaning nursing mothers will not be allowed to use their tax-exempt health care accounts to pay for breast pumps and other supplies.

Despite a growing body of research indicating that the antibodies passed from mother to child in breast milk could reduce disease among infants, the IRS has denied a request from the American Academy of Pediatrics to reclassify breast-feeding costs as a medical care expense.

What do you think about this decision?
