Gisele: Breastfeeding Should "Be Law"

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has stepped away from her controversial comments that all women should breastfeed, but it's still breeding controversy.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen caused quite a stir recently, saying in an interview for Harper's Bazaar UK, that she thinks breastfeeding should be mandatory for the first six months of a baby's life. 

The 30-year-old supermodel told the magazine "Some people here [in the U.S.] think they don't have to breastfeed, and I think 'Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?'" adding "I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

Since making those comments, Bundchen has stepped away from them, saying on her blog "My intention in making a comment about the importance of breastfeeding has nothing to do with the law. It comes from my passion and beliefs about children."

What Gisele said touched a nerve with a lot of people. What do you think?
