Army rescinds pregnancy ban

I recently wrote about a new policy in the U.S. Army under which U.S. troops in northern Iraq could face court-martial and jail time if they become pregnant or if they impregnate another service member.

But now there's good news: In a report for truthout.org, Jason Leopold reports that the new policy "was rescinded following an outcry from women’s groups and fierce criticism by four Democratic lawmakers."

Once again, raising hell has made a positive difference.
