They ARE trained for that Inkstain.

Bitner's mother wouldn't be in the military on the front lines you jackwit.

When I was in, we regularly did 10 mile hikes with 85+ lb packs. And yes, we were trained on how to get someone wounded out of harms way.

You take this kind of discussion to ridiculous lengths. The FACT is there IS no draft, and there's not likely to be one anytime soon.

IF there were to be a draft, women would NOT be drafted unless there was an Act of Congress to change the law as it stands.

Women - presently - are VOLUNTEERING for the service and for military combat stations - the Pentagon has approved it because so many WANT to do this.

YOU DONT GET A SAY, just like your opinion is meaningless regarding their VOLUNTARY CHOICES regarding abortion.

Such that shit up already and deal with it.

Spontaneous abortions are still counted as abortions regardless if your opinion.
Murders and suicides are counted in the number of deaths, are they the same?

The grand jury report that I posted before says directly that Gosnell wasn't bothered because the administration didn't want to be seen as putting up a barrier for women to obtain abortions.
Politically they were afraid to run afoul of the pro choice movement.The world is full of cowards.
Seems the pro-life movement couldn't be bothered either. The neighborhood wasn't white enough to bother picketing.

As I've said before, there's enough blame to go around to EVERYONE.

"putting up a barrier for women to obtain abortions"

"With the change of administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that inspections would be "putting a barrier up to women" seeking abortions."

Really? Are you REALLY too stupid to research this stuff yourself dumbass?

ARMY:

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/12/01/15...

"1st Lt. Audrey Moton and 2nd Lt. Carley Turnnidge, both West Point graduates, took on the Army's Sapper Leader Training course for combat engineers at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri. It's one of the toughest combat training courses in the entire U.S. military and the only course of its kind that accepts women. Since 1999, nearly 60 women have made the grade."

MARINES:

Air Force already trains its pilots for combat training, women OR men.

Seriously, Idiot? You REALLY need someone to prove that there are already women in the military, and that their training, as well as the physical standards they must follow, are the same as a man's?

That's not true. As of now they aren't on the front lines and under the same rigorous training. That's what all the discussion is about, whether or not the standards will be lowered for women. Do you think they should be adjusted for women?

Foo just proved you wrong on the training, Idiot. Educate yourself, seriously.

Listen carefully, THERE ARE ALREADY WOMEN IN THE MILITARY WHO ARE TRAINED THE SAME. WHY would the standards have to be lowered?

It says in the report--Gosnell was known as a doctor who would provide abortions at any stage. His patients were referred from DE, MD, VA, NC, as well as cities outside Philly. He performed 40,000 abortions a year.

Unfortunately it isn't bullshit.

You need to stop being her little minion and find things out for yourself. The Marines don't seem to be aware that women are fighting on the front lines. It is still a big debate for them as to whether or not women will be strong enough for the job requirements.

Idiot, I never said women are already on the front lines. Learn to read.

And speaking of learning to read, did you miss THIS from your own source?

Women were on the front lines in combat before 2003.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2013/01...

"When Gen. Martin Dempsey, then commander of the 1st Armored Division, arrived in Baghdad in 2003, he jumped into a Humvee, tapped the turret gunner on the leg and asked, "Who are you?" The gunner assigned to protect him replied, "I'm Amanda."

Dempsey, now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says that was the moment he "realized something had changed, and it was time to do something about it."

http://www.ibtimes.com/women-combat-now-its-o...

"Women In Combat: Now It's Official, But They Were Already Fighting"

"Stationed in the Iraqi city of Baiji, about 130 miles north of Baghdad, Army National Guard Sergeant Carolyn Schapper was an outlier: the only woman in a house with 20 men. But that didn’t mean a thing when it came to carrying out her assigned missions.

Schapper went on about 200 combat patrols during the year she was stationed in Iraq, from 2005 to 2006. Her vehicle was twice hit by improvised explosive devices, or IEDs. Mortars and rockets struck her army base several times."

"Women in the U.S. military have been putting their lives on the line for decades; they currently make up about 20 percent of the national armed forces. Of the approximately 280,000 females who have been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan in the past 12 years, 152 have died and at least 800 have been wounded."

"Havrilla was deployed in Afghanistan from Sept. 2006 to Sept. 2007, where she was an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Technician.

“I took care of IEDs for a living,” she said.“I saw combat repeatedly. I went outside the wires six or seven days a week. I was in a couple of firefights; I was hit by IEDs multiple times. We spent days on end near the border with Pakistan engaged in missions. If that’s not a front-line experience, I don’t know what is.”

As usual, Inkstain doesn't have a damn clue what she's babbling about.

Group helps people with depression whose siblings killed in abortion.

I'm sure most proaborts don't realize that their kids have deep pain when the reality hits them that their sibling(s) was/weree killed by their moms because they were not wanted. How can a child bear the news that mom and dad believe that killing is acceptable?

I would be disgusted to find out that my parents felt that they had a right to kill me "if" they decided that I wasn't wanted. I feel sorry for kids raised with proabort parents.

No wonder so many people have depression, all kinds of disorders,anger,etc..... They have surpressed feelings.

Well that's what we have been talking about. That's what all the conversation about women in the military is, opening them to front line combat. Everyone agrees that they should be allowed to fight for their country.

BTW everybody knows that they are already in the military. Why would that need more discussion?
