Yahoo! News - Senate Rejects Ban on Military Abortions Abroad

Senate Rejects Ban on Military Abortions Abroad Fri Jun 21,10:32 AM ET
By Vicki Allen
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate voted to let U.S. servicewomen get privately funded abortions in overseas military hospitals on Friday, rejecting the current ban on almost all abortion services at military facilities abroad.

The Democratic-led Senate on a 52-40 vote passed the measure that backers said would restore rights to women who now must get a commanding officer's approval for travel back to the United States for abortion services or rely on the host country's facilities, where they may face language and cultural barriers or receive inferior care.
