    You said:


    And i simply pointed out that in the act of getting knocked up involves two people getting laid, not just one. . .sex in the service happens all the time, it only becomes a problem when the chick becomes pregnant and unavailable.

    I feel that women in this day and age have no excuses for "oops, I'm pregnant" - maybe 100 years ago (but, also noting, that 100 years ago we weren't allowed in the military in strong part becaues of this very same issue) - but not now. The government has ensured that birth control in one form or many forms are available either for free or for a reduced cost.

    However - the fault I see is that they don't require women who want to be in the military to be on BC of some nature ... citing rights violations and blah blah.

    In my opinion - they should make it mandate ... If you want ot join you have to submit to __ or __ and in order to receive your BC you have to show up, log in, and see the Dr.

    If someone doesn't want to accept that - they shouldn't sign up.
    If someone doesn't want the government telling them what to do with their bodies they shouldn't sign up (kind of a no brainer, here)

    Ok, thanks for clearing that up.

    it would be illegal, because the miltiary can't force a soldier to undergo medical treatment, against that soldier's will.
    It wouldn't be against their will and they wouldn't be forced. They choose: Join the military, or don't join the military.

    You'll have to take that up with the ACLU.

    Let me tell you a story to try and help you understand why the miltiary can't do that.

    When I went on my first overseas deployment, I had to have a dental check-up. The dentist wanted to pull my wisdom teeth. I told him I didn't want to pull my wisdom teeth. He explained why it would be better to go ahead and remove them when I was 19, rather later in life when they were infected. Again, I declined. That as the end of it. he couldn't force me to pull my wisdom teeth, although it would be in the best interest of my health and my good health would be in the best interest of the Army.

    You can't tell a female that ether they use a contraceptive device, or they can't join the service. The civil rights lawyers around the country would be on that like a shark feeding frenzy.

    Civil rights lawyers and particularly the ACLU need to be locked up themselves to keep them out of the normal population.
