Justice for Rape Survivors in the Military

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

We're ready to say goodbye and good riddance to an anti-choice policy that's an injustice to women in the military.

Today, was a big step forward for the health and safety of women in the military. Members of the House and Senate have agreed to consider language and are expected to vote to lift the ban on servicewomen who survive sexual assault and become pregnant from using their military health plan to cover abortion care!

We're so close to a victory that will mean everything to the thousands of servicewomen who are raped every year. Finally, these women will be able to use their insurance plan for abortion care if they choose to. It's the right thing to do.

The next step will be for the full House and Senate to vote on the final language. We'll keep you posted!
