U.S.: The military’s genius new policy: Get pregnant, get court-martial

  • Whoops, the condom broke! I’m screwed! In a baffling decision clearly made by a man, soldiers under command of Gen. Anthony Cucolo in Iraq could face a court martial if they get – or get someone else – pregnant. “Anyone who leaves this fight earlier than the expected 12-month deployment creates a burden on their teammates,” Cucolo wrote. “Anyone who leaves this fight early because they made a personal choice that changed their medical status – or contributes to doing that to another – is not in keeping with a key element of our ethos.” An expert quoted in the article says the policy is legal, too, if controversial. In other news, if the Catholic Church could do this, they totally would. source
