Ten British servicewomen on operations in Afghanistan have been sent back to the UK in the past six months after falling pregnant, it was revealed today.

The servicewomen were evacuated between April 31 and October 31 this year under military rules which ban pregnant women from being on battle duty, according to figures released to the Sunday Mirror by the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

An MoD spokeswoman said: "All our forces are expected to behave within the Armed Forces' code of conduct. If women become or discover they are pregnant on operations, they are returned to the UK at the first opportunity for their own well being and to preserve operational effectiveness."

Since when was getting pregnant against the Armed Forces code of conduct?

If we ignored the AF code of conduct the way our government have ignored the Covenant, there wouldn't be much of an army left.

Talk about a lack of contraceptive vending machines. Thin end of the wedge and all of that - I'll just go and first-parade the bus, and in the meantime await the "Stop the War" coalition issue yet more calls for our boys to pull out. Evidently, advice not heeded by some!

Yes soldiers are expected to behave within the Armed Forces code of conduct ,But they are only human after all ,And i should imagine Abstaining from sex in your 20,30,40's as a male/female can be incredibly challenging for some people .
