I agree with Ticky...

She wasn't removed for the act of breastfeeding, she was removed from the plane for the act of indecent exposure. She was obviously not being discreet, and the FA approached her and offered her a blanket to cover up. It was not until she refused to cover up that she was removed from a plane.
I frankly have been in to many situations where vigilante booby moms feel the need to "whip 'em out" whenever and wherever they please with no regard for anyone around them. They make a huge spectacle of themselves as if they are trying to get everyone riled up. It seems as if the act of exposing oneself in public is more the reason for the breastfeeding, than the needs of the child.
I have also seen the moms who truly believe that breastfeeding should be private bonding time with their children, and when they need to feed in public, they do not make a spectacle of themselves.They wear nursing appropriate clothing, that allows them to nurse without having to expose themselves to the general public, and find a quiet place to be for the few moments it takes. I have even seen a nursing mom go so far as to ask a hostess in a restaurant for a quiet booth, instead of the table in the middle of the restaurant because of this issue.
It's all about attitude. There are appropiate and inappropriate ways to do everything. In this case this woman was acting inappropriately when she refused to cover up.
