    I think there is some real world problems to worry about here. I mean, once you start mixing men and women into the same cramped space for however long they're at sea for; you ain't gonna stop all the monkey business. So you either have an OB or an abortion doctor on board or are somehow able to make it so ever time it happens, you can turn the sub around and return to port. But I didn't think that they returned to port often. Maybe they do. Still, there are real concerns. We could say "well a woman can do X", and while that may be true we also have to consider the full environment which we're talking about.

    The thing is that there aren't that many places in such a small boat to monkey around without getting caught.

    So let's say she gets pregnant the first week at sea.......

    That's going to be a hell of a long deployment.

    She'll be spending a lot of time on the head. There is no reason that a pregnant woman can't serve until her 7th or 8th month. Most of the rest of us somehow manage to do it. I was traveling on the road (flying and driving) up until 2 weeks before I gave birth to my daughter. It's not a freaking disability.

    Also, her stupidity, her problem. Give her and her partner dishonorable discharges.

    This is not as hard as you people want to make it.

    Tom Cruise with seamen on his back.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
