PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia police officer says in a lawsuit filed Wednesday that the department makes it difficult for new mothers to breastfeed at work. 

The sex and pregnancy discrimination suit says that despite complaints the department doesn't give women the time and space they need to pump. 

The lawsuit accuses the department of violating city, state and federal laws that mandate accommodations for nursing mothers. About 22% of the city's 6,500 officers are women.
