Veterans' Access to Abortion Care

Mike Ludwig with Truthout writes on November 20, 2022 about a battle over veterans' access to abortion care.  

In September, the Biden administration announced that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs would offer abortion counseling and referrals, as well as abortions when a patient’s life is in danger, or when a pregnancy results from rape or incest. Fifteen Republican attorneys general from Texas, Mississippi, Florida, Indiana, Ohio and other states said they put the administration “on notice” this week. In a letter, they threatened legal action if Veterans Affairs hospitals run afoul of extremely harmful new abortion and reproductive health restrictions passed in their states after the Supreme Court’s far right majority overturned Roe v. Wade.
