Bill includes amendment to allow abortions at overseas bases
from Stars and Stripes
A Senate provision to allow abortions at overseas military bases could set up an election year fight between abortion rights supporters and conservative lawmakers who have thwarted the measure for years. Senate Republicans threatened to block the full defense authorization bill when it comes up for a vote later this month after the abortion provision was attached in the chamber's Armed Services Committee mark-up.
