Breast-feeding driver using Bible as defense

Assciated Press, Aug. 6, 2003

RAVENNA, Ohio – A woman arrested for breast-feeding while driving is appealing to a higher authority.

Catherine Nicole Donkers says she wants the Bible to be the law, when she goes on trial today. She was busted in May when a trucker called 911 to report a woman breast-feeding her baby while behind the wheel.

Donkers doesn’t deny she was nursing her baby on the Ohio Turnpike, but contends she was improperly charged.

She and her common-law husband are members of the First Christian Fellowship for Eternal Sovereignty. They take a dim view of government authority and believe it’s wrong to require people to have driver’s licenses, Social Security numbers or marriage licenses.
