Editorial cartoon: A pregnant pause at Iwo Jima

The iconic photo of the flag raising at Iwo Jima might look a little different if half of the platoon was on sick call waiting to see the OB/GYN.

 

I was under the impression that enlisting in the military pretty much made you the 24/7 property of Uncle Sam. Plus, I think, probably, that being pregnant would have a negative impact on one’s ability to be an effective warrior. Of course, the National Organization of Women thinks this is a slight to tell women not to get pregnant while deployed — Just one more way that blind adherence to dogma leads to blatant stupidity.
