Soldiers banned from getting abortions

From an ACLU message:

It's totally unacceptable. More than 100,000 women serving overseas in our nation's armed services can't exercise the rights they defend with their lives.

But that's what's happening: women in the armed services are prevented from getting abortions—even if they pay for them themselves.

[...]

The Senate Armed Services Committee recently voted to lift the military facilities abortion ban and allow privately financed abortions in U.S. military hospitals. But anti-choice members of Congress are trying to keep the senseless ban in place.

The site to write your members of Congress. Note that the "get email from the ACLU" checkbox is opt-out.
