Memorial Day and Bad Timing

This and every memorial day, we remember the sacrifices of our men and women in the armed services.

Unfortunately, the House Republicans last week prevented an amendment from coming to the floor that would have provided coverage for emergency contraception to military women and dependents who are the victims of rape.

I would have hoped that the House leadership might have thought that providing the medical standard of care to women in uniform at least deserved an up or down vote.
