President Obama Stands with Servicewomen

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

We need your help to end an egregious policy that impacts women in the military who have survived a rape.

We've been working hard to make sure that military women who are survivors of rape or incest can get abortion services covered using their military health insurance. Anti-choice law currently bans them from doing so, and they must pay the cost themselves.

The U.S. Senate is poised to lift this ban.

And today, pro-choice champion President Obama confirmed his administration's support for overturning the ban (see page four of this PDF).

We're so thankful that the person we call Mr. President stands with women, and especially with the women who dedicate their lives to serving our country.

We owe it to our servicewomen to make sure they can get the health services they need in the tragic case of sexual assault.

Help us end this horrible policy -- send a strong message to lawmakers.

Stand with our servicewomen and tell Congress to put the needs of rape survivors in the military ahead of their extreme anti-choice agenda.
