One Step Closer to Equality for Servicewomen
December 5, 2012
Thank you to everyone who emailed their Congress members in support of the Shaheen Amendment, and thank you to our Fellows, who went to the Capitol to advocate for servicewomen's health. We are thrilled that the Senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act, including the Shaheen Amendment, with a unanimous vote.
Now, it moves on to the House. If you haven't done so already, please take action today and urge your Congress member to lift the military’s ban on coverage for abortion in cases of rape and incest.
Our board chair Douglas Laube, MD, MEd, said: "The military prides itself on top-of-the-line care for the wounded. It’s time for rape survivors to get the same treatment." Our women in uniform dedicate their lives to protecting our country—it's time for the law to protect them. Tell your representative to support servicewomen’s health!
