Equality for Servicewomen: The Shaheen Amendment

Privacy statement. This embed will serve content from youtube.com.

The Department of Defense denies coverage for abortion care except when a pregnant woman's life is endangered. Unlike other federal bans on abortion coverage, the military ban provides no exception for cases of rape and incest. The Shaheen Amendment introduced by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) would end the ban on insurance coverage of abortion care for military women and dependents in cases of rape and incest.
