U.S. Military Will Fund Abortions in Cases of Rape, Incest


#1

The U.S. military appears headed to a new policy that will fund abortions in cases of rape or incest, expanding current DOD policy.
Democrats in Congress and top pro-abortion groups pushed hard to force Americans to fund abortions at military base hospitals with their taxpayer dollars. Current U.S. policy prohibits taxpayer funding of such abortions, except if the mother’s life is in danger, but Democrats want to fund abortions in cases of rape or incest.
Senate Democrats approved a defense funding bill with a pro-abortion amendment attached to it that would allow for taxpayer financing of abortions, while House Republicans approved similar legislation with the current pro-life policy in place. The bills then went to a conference committee where language from the Senate version of the bill made the final cut.

“House and Senate negotiators on the annual Pentagon policy bill have reached a compromise on highly charged social issues in the sprawling measure, agreeing to authorize Defense Department funds for abortions in cases of rape or incest,” Congressional Quarterly reported today. “Social and domestic issues have, in the past, often tied up final negotiations on the sprawling measure, with the House and Senate regularly at odds over provisions ranging from immigration to abortion. But for this year’s bill, negotiators have navigated these often prickly social issues and reached compromise relatively swiftly.”
Before the decision on the final language of the bill that will eventually head to President Barack Obama to sign, Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, said he hoped the current pro-life policy would be retained.

Incest?

Is there a big problem with adult women soldiers becoming pregnant by their uncles and fathers?
If so I would think their training structure would need an overhaul.

The children of military personnel are also treated at military hospitals.

Good point, I had not considered that.
