As long as our nation insists on making war, then our soldiers deserve access to all the health care that they need. In the case of our servicewomen, that would include access to health care, including abortion, to deal with the consequences of rape.

signed. I would like to also have the military pay for a mandatory castratration for any service man who rapes a woman...not only a female soldier, but civilian be it child, male, or female! We do not need to recruit monsters who choose to rape no matter where they are stationed!!!!!

I would just like to say that, while it is true that our military does have a significant rape which not only women soldiers, but also male soldiers are being sexually must not be forgotten that rape is as it has always been, a weapon of war. American soldiers, male and female, in combat zones may find themselves captured and subsequently raped. The purpose of this action alert isn't so much to discuss the critically important issue of rape in the military or rape of POW's; this action alert draws attention to the lack of meaningful assistance that servicewomen receive after they have become pregnant as a result of rape. They serve our nation; they suffer degradation and horror; and then our government blocks their access to the health care that they need most. Please sign the petition.

A significant issue deserving of signatures for making a difference in the lives of the women who are willing to serve.

Petition signed. No one should have the right to tell a woman who was raped, that she can't have an aboration. It's her right not theirs.Thanks Brian

I'm pro choice, and don't think the government should be able to tell citizens what they can or can't do with their own bodies.

Signed. Always remember that the Repug/Tea Bagged are intent on denying abortion and contraception under all circumstances to every female regardless in the USA not just the US Military.

Yes, rape in warfare is as old as war is and legislators know this darn well, just another piece in their deep rooted hate and war on women .

What will the armed services do without the support of our women?
Let's face it. They didn't welcome females in, with 'open arms'; they need extra bodies.
