No Obama apology so far for woman kicked out of the Air Force for being pregnant, told she could have served if she’d had an abortion

According to NY Newsday: Rebecca Edmonds was rejected from the Air Force and had her $92,000 scholarship revoked after she told her commanding officers she was pregnant, due to a policy against single moms. She has appealed and her case is under review.


The single mother, who was booted from the military for being pregnant says she was told she could have continued to serve if she’d had an abortion.

Rebecca Edmonds, who joined the Air Force as an ROTC cadet in 2007 when she was 18 years old, is now battling the military after she was kicked out for telling her superiors she was having a baby.

Edmonds, who opened up about her ordeal in a recent CNN interview, found out she was pregnant 11 weeks before she was scheduled to graduate and become a commissioned officer, and says she didn’t say anything because she didn’t know the military had a policy against single parents.

She says she then became terrified to reveal she was expecting after an officer who didn’t even know she was pregnant told her it would likely cause a problem.

The Commander-in-Chief, President Obama, to my knowledge has NOT called this servicewoman to apologize- yet he managed to place a call to college student Sandra Fluke after a comment by Rush Limbaugh:

WHY????
