The Republican War on Women has reached the military

2 posts / 0 new

A Republican staffer in the House told the Army Times that House Republicans plan to restrict military women’s access to abortion in cases of rape and incest. With bipartisan support, a Senate Committee approved the amendment giving military women the same access to abortion in cases of rape and incest as ordinary citizens.

But House Republicans say they have social objections to the amendment and will likely strip it out of the National Defense Authorization bill. That means the 200,000 women serving in our nation’s military won’t have the same rights to reproductive health services as all the other women in American who are not serving in the military.

Well at least this time when they try to strip away women's rights, the women will know how to use guns!
