U.S. soldiers in Iraq could face courts-martial for getting pregnant
Washington (CNN) -- A new order from the general in charge of northern Iraq makes getting pregnant or impregnating a fellow soldier an offense punishable by court-martial.
The directive, part of a larger order restricting the behavior of the 22,000 soldiers under Gen. Anthony Cucolo's command, is meant to prevent losing soldiers at a time when troop strength is stretched thin, Cucolo explained in a statement sent to the troops under his command and provided to CNN.
We have all these laws so a woman can have full say over what happens inside her uterus, even if it means burning a baby alive with salt water, but this is ok?

You have obviously never been in the military. When you are military, you are government property. You can get court marshaled for getting a tattoo; for damaging government property. I see no difference here. You are not fighting over there to get pregnant, but to fight. You don't have regular rights when you are in the military.

I am normally all for what a woman wants to do with her own body, but I agree that this would be a tough call, and I'm glad I don't have to make it.

How in the world would someone burn a baby alive with salt water while it's in the uterus?

FYI- The U.S does NOT use salt poison abortions. There are only 3 different types of abortion that are available in the U.S. 1) Medical abortion which is a medication used to stop the pregnancy hormone. 2) (Surgical) vacuum aspiration and D& E. The procedure you just described does not happen in the U.S.
