No EC for Women in the US Armed Forces

With rape an ongoing threat to women serving the United States in uniform, the Bush administration has shown its indifference to truly supporting the troops, demanding that EC be taken off the list of medicines required at military facilities. Apparently the Democrats don't care to engage the fight to counteract the order.

Well after that whole Reid incident where a half dozen people who were at an event and willing to go on the record about it turned out to have faulty memories of it, I'm a bit reluctant to automatically believe "sources". The linked story is more about the (horrifying) past than it is an explanation of what did or didn't go down in this one vote (or lack of a vote). It clearly deserves more attention though.
