Military Health Care Perquisites & Limitations

[Military Health Care Perquisites & Limitations]

Mull this over for a few minutes. I live in a country where "[e]ven in cases of rape and incest, military health insurance doesn't cover [abortion], which costs from $325 to $650 in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy" . . . . but . . . . "members of all four branches of the U.S. military can get face-lifts, breast enlargements, liposuction and nose jobs for free".

I realize that doctors need to maintain certifications, and that they need to have logged certain levels of surgery types in order to qualify, and that this seems to be the government's argument about the latter . . . . but in light of the former that argument looks ridiculous. If a woman who is raped must pay for the cost of an abortion, then a woman who wants fake tits sure as hell should have to pay for those.
