‘Badass’ Lesbian Motorcycle gang delivers breastmilk to babies in need
Did we mention Lesbian!
This is pretty awesome. There are babies in need of breastmilk and there are motorbike wielding badass lesbian drivers who deliver breastmilk to them! How cool is that? As per this news item that featured on NY Post: http://nypost.com/video/this-badass-lesbian-motorcycle-gang-delivers-breastmilk-to-babies/ this is actually true.
Talking to New York Post, the program’s Executive DirectorJulie Bouchet-Horwitz explains, “We have a product. Our product is human milk. So what we do is, women who have too much milk, we screen them, test their blood, pasteurize it, and then distribute it.” And therein lies the rub; the distribution of said breast milk to babies in need. Babies who were born premature, babies whose mothers are not able to produce enough milk for them. Premature babies in particular need breast milk to protect them from necrotizing enterocolitis, a debilitating intestinal infection. How best to get breast milk to these babies?”
Introducing — The Sirens..
The name adds to the awesomeness of the gang — doesn’t it? Their website claims that they are the oldest motorcycle gang in New York, “The Sirens Women’s Motorcycle Club is the oldest, largest women’s motorcycle club in NYC. Founded in 1986 our current membership is over 40 women.”
What are the Sirens all about? Well, as per one of their members:
The Sirens represent strong women. Period.
As per a member who told The New York Post; “It was pretty unanimous that we wanted to help out.”
Aren’t they a cool role model for girls out there? Well, they surely are.. Says a member: “Little girls, when they see us on the road, they light up. Like ‘wow, we can ride motorcycles like that.’”
