Title: Military Abortion Amendment

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to adopt an amendment that would ensure that military personnel have access to abortion services in military hospitals.

Highlights:
  • Would not require public funding of abortions, as the individual seeking the abortion would be responsible for all cost associated with the procedure.
  • Would overturn the ban that currently allows abortions in military hospitals only in cases when the life of the woman is at risk, or in cases of rape or incest.
