Pregnancy ban

Forced abortion and contraception in the military? Share

Ach, even though my SIL is a retired Col. with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, I don't agree with women in the military serving in combat zones. It is unnatural for women to kill/fight as a nurturer of human life. Of course, I tend to be a bit of pacifist. I pray we never see the day when women are drafted.

Sadly, my SIL is married and childless having waited too long for motherhood...a sad situation for her. She may adopt, but I think she has reconciled herself to a life filled with other things...by habit of her lifestyle - the ultimate birth control.

I agree, women should not be in combat zones. It certainly is not going to impress the Moslems with the value of freedom and democracy.

The question is this, can the US legislate morality? We can't legislate homosexuality. What if a couple are married catholics and they sleep together? If they are good Catholics they will not contracept, the result could be a baby. Requiring a couple to use condoms or other abortificiants is a sin. Therefore this general is violating their 1st amendment (Religion) rights as well as their 4th (privacy). This is not as we would say a moral order. Immoral orders do not have to be followed.
