Facing a staggering 74 percent unintended pregnancy rate, the Navy has launched a family planning awareness and information campaign.
The Navy’s peer-mentoring program Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions is holding informational sessions on family planning throughout January covering topics that include parental leave, operational deferment and the best forms of birth control.
It’s been well-established on numerous occasions that female soldiers/sailors/marines/etc. are nowhere near as qualified for military service as men. There have been numerous complaints over the past couple of decades how the constant push to include women in the armed forces has dumbed down the standards of the armed forces. Now the problem is worse, not only are America’s armed forces weakened, they are dealing with what should have been an easily foreseen problem. When women and men are kept in close proximity to one another, it shouldn’t be surprising if they start boning. And it shouldn’t be surprising if their boning leads to pregnancies.
Now, there is no need to have detailed informational sessions on family planning. The problem of unwanted pregnancies in the armed forces is really not all that complex, and therefore does not require that complex a solution. If the Navy is concerned about the sheer number of unwanted pregnancies it has to deal with, the easiest solution is to disallow women from serving alongside men in the Navy. War is a man’s business, and those men who are responsible for defending the country cannot afford to be distracted by women, or by said women’s occasional unwanted pregnancies.
