Editorial: Congress should cover in vitro for military veterans
from Tampa Bay Times
Access to in vitro fertilization should be provided to every service member injured in battle. The U.S. military has seen a dramatic increase in reproductive injuries due to the use of improvised explosive devices in Iraq and Afghanistan, preventing thousands of young veterans from starting families. Many of those wounded consider IVF their only hope for conceiving children. Yet they find little help from the federal government, since the Department of Veterans Affairs enforces a ban on paying for the procedure. Congress should change this outdated policy and make treatment available for all veterans who seek it.
