I'm not on the fence on this issue.
I agree...however, do you feel the men should be punished too?

Except that it has been reported in the media. Shame you had to go to all that trouble with your "delving".

I agree that it's wrong, embarrassing and shouldnt have happened. One a year eh?

Disgraceful that they may have got pregnant before deploying or during R&R and found out they were pregnant whilst deployed.

How many service women are there out there of child-bearing age? How does that compare with, say, the number of suicides or self-inflicted injuries or psychiatric RTBs? How does it compare with normal accident rates (road, ND, etc)

Or are you complaining that 1 a year is too low?

Definitely done on here before, though wouldn't be surprised if it was holed. I seem to remember some members picked some pretty serious holes in the figures quoted as well, I think much along the lines of what "horridlittleman" was saying.

I'm saying even 1 is too many if it is to do with our Armed Forces....we are there to set examples not follow....
British forces are in Afghanistan to show the locals how not to get pregnant? I suppose that COULD work as a strategy, eventually, but wouldn't it take rather a long time?

What do you think about Horridlittleman's point about people unknowingly getting pregnant pre-tour or while on R&R?

Once a unit is warned for Ops theres this wonderful little thing called contraception.. and as for getting preggers on R&R... tantamount to desertion in the face of the enemy.

I agree with horridlittleman's points that he makes, I just feel though that it would take a good 12 weeks for things to get serious with pregnancy and then that would be end of the tour if it was around R&R so I'm agreeing with him on pre deployment.

Something normal happens in life. Pregnancy is a normal occurrence. I have no idea who you are, but you sound like some wizened, barren old spinster who hates women who can bear children.

Get the cork out from your aerse and concentrate on something important rather than men and women getting together and making babies. Dull harpie.

Some get up the duff pre tour and didn't know about it, some on RnR, some on tour.

Women find out they're pregnant, they go back. Can't see a problem.

Punnishing them - Why bother? Send em back and get them on rear party.

As for punishing the 'father'? Brilliant idea AGAI a civvie? DNA test a whole squadron? :)

The problem is someone has to replace them and risk their lives because some tart pleads her belly.
