Military Women Deserve All Legal Medical Services

This petition had 620 supporters

Illinois Senator Roland Burris introduced an amendment that would repeal the current ban barring women in uniform and military dependent women from procuring abortion services in military facilities, even if they pay for it with their own money except in the case of incest, rape or imminent threat to the woman's life. The committee approved this amendment and plans to introduce it as part of the Defense Authorization Act.

Women who give their lives for their country should not have to go to extreme measures to get a medical procedure that is safe and legal in that country. It is time we give our support to those women and let our Congress know that these women deserve the option of full medical care.
