Reproductive Health Services in the Military: It’s Time to Stop Denying Servicewomen the Basic Rights For Which They Fight

Kelsey Holt

Military servicewomen fight for our country and our rights yet are denied access to basic reproductive health care.  They face shockingly high rates of sexual assault and rape, yet are denied access to legal services. We urge policymakers in 2012 to put politics aside and support the women serving our country through policies that put their needs and wellbeing first, as they do ours.
