Mother in an educational breastfeeding video ends up on porn site

New Jersey mother is now suing

NEW JERSEY - MaryAnn Sahoury said breastfeeding was a beautiful experience for her and her daughter and she wanted to educate other mothers struggling with it.  That's why she agreed to do an educational video.  However, that ended up on a porn site.

According to the New York Daily News , back in 2010, Sahoury, a participated in an instructional video called "Breast-feeding Help".  She didn't get paid and said she was happy to  participate since she had such a wonderful experience breast-feeding.  The New Jersey mother was given assurances that neither her name, nor her 1-month old daughter's name would be used.  Months later, she was horrified to see that her video had been shared on YouTube and then snatched up by a third party that manipulated it by combining it with pornographic footage.

Sahoury signed a release, but admitted she didn't read it.  The publishers of the video, Meredith Video Studios had the authority to share the video.  She is now suing.
