Because Every Life Is Sacred in Iraq 

Courtesy of Des Femmes and Body and Soul: As conscientious Zemblans who click on the links (the vast majority, we're told by independent researchers who would never dream of speaking truth to royalty) are already aware, our modern, enlightened Pentagon is only too happy to subsidize elective cosmetic surgery, e.g., breast implants, for enlistees. But did you realize that a Congressional ban prohibits military doctors from performing abortions for servicewomen, even those who are willing to pay for the procedure? -- Even those who are serving in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan, where abortions are illegal and cannot be obtained at private clinics? -- Even those who have been raped by other soldiers?
