    Navy Seeks to Combat Unplanned Pregnancies

    I told you lefties a long time ago that this is what you get when you mix young men and women at sea for a long period of time....No matter what the restrictions are they will get together and make unwanted babies.

    Up to 65 percent of pregnancies in the military are self-reported as unplanned, according to a December report by The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' Committee on Health Care for Underserved Women.
    Nearly three-fourths of all Navy pregnancies were unplanned, according to a recent parenthood survey conducted by the service. Of those, only 31 percent of the couples were using birth control at the time they conceived. With pregnancies involving enlisted servicewomen, 70 percent of the fathers were also in the military

    Yes, because only liberals in the military cause pregnancy. BWWWAHAAAAHHHAAAAAA! Stop . . . please . . . if you just made a point without Liberal bashing it would not make you look so . . .

    In my experience, unplanned pregnancies mostly happen when people do not practice birth control.

    Liberals are the ones who want to use the military for social experimentation.............Very few young people use birth control....That is the reason for the epedimic of pregnancies.

    I would rather there be some unwanted pregnancies than continue with the former sexist policies.

    Besides, I am far more concerned about the rape rate in the U.S. military than I am anything else. The 2012 documentary "The Invisible War" sheds a lot of light on this, enough that some policy adjustments have been made already.

    I'm pretty sure some folks might say there wouldn't be rape if there weren't women.

    Terrible right wing whine. The US Army did a study on one Army base, Ft.Hood Tx, and found a 65% unintended pregnancy rate. Rather than whine about it, i'd suggest a better planned parenthood effort, a wider stocking of birth control methods- 31% failure rate is unacceptable- on deployments.

    Whining about young men and women serving together is odd, considering the single parent rate is 8% in the Navy. More like homecoming after poor contraceptive practices on deployment causing pregnancy.

    nothing to do with co-ed service...

    Another epic fail...

    Liberals love to socially experiment with the military . . . . you know . . . like that whole experiment where we treat each race equally. Thank God.

    I thought most of you old sailors were gay. Adding women to the mix shouldn't get anyone pregnant unless Marines were involved.

    Re: Navy Seeks to Combat Unplanned Pregnancies

    From the article:

    Deployed servicewomen may need to change their contraceptive methods because not all combat areas or bases stock certain birth control tools, such as patches, injections or contraceptive rings, the report found. (snip) "One of the things we've heard is that there is not a lot of information on the kinds of contraception that can last several months, Depo-Provera and other kinds of long-term contraceptives … "Sometimes there are not adequate supplies of the pill or they are expected to bring a whole year of supply with them,"

    It seems to me the problem is not women in the military, it's an inadequate implementation of the logistical necessities.
