Support The Sheehan Amendment

Right now, if a servicewoman or a military dependent is a survivor of rape or incest, she will have to pay out of pocket for the abortion care she needs, unlike her civilian counterparts who also get health insurance through the federal government. 

The decision to have an abortion is personal and should only be made by women not by politicians.

Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America:
  “It is unconscionable that politicians and other groups want to tell our servicewomen that they can’t exercise the very freedoms they signed up to defend—and that’s why I am supporting these changes to the defense bill.”
