Senate Votes on Military Sexual Experiment

In a few hours, the Senate will consider legislation to force homosexuality on soldiers, and force every American to fund abortion on military bases.

UPDATE 9/21/10: GOP defeats repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" in Senate (for now anyway), as well as military abortions

-- From "Bill would lift military abortion ban" by Seth McLaughlin, The Washington Times 9/19/10

Senate Democrats are angling to end the military's decades-old ban on allowing abortions in overseas military hospitals, thus thrusting the culture wars back onto the front burner after months of being drowned out by the nation's economic woes.

Sen. Roland W. Burris, Illinois Democrat, ushered the proposal through the Senate Armed Services Committee in May, tacking it onto the Defense Authorization Act, which the Senate is slated to consider Tuesday.

Mr. Burris' plan would require women to pay for abortions upfront and without government funds, but would allow [taxpayer-paid] doctors at [taxpayer-funded] military hospitals to perform the procedures if those conditions are met. It would overturn a policy established by congressional Republicans in the mid-1990s that restricted abortions at military hospitals only to cases of rape, incest or when the woman's life is in danger.

From "Proposal to End Military Abortion Ban Complicates Defense Budget Bill" posted at 9/20/10

Democrats argue that women would still be using their own private funds for the procedure, not taxpayer money. But Republicans contend that the doctors and the facilities where the procedure would be performed are federally funded.

[These amendments have] been widely opposed by social conservatives and only further complicates the debate over the defense spending package. Senate Democrats already have drawn the ire of Republicans by trying to add to the bill measures to repeal the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy banning gays from serving openly in the military and provide young illegal immigrants who attend college or join the military a pathway to citizenship.

. . . Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has indicated that even if the Senate clears that hurdle, which requires 60 votes, the defense bill likely will not come up for a final vote until after the November election.
