Sen. Duckworth on Senator Blocking Military Promotions Over Abortion Issue

A US Senator has been blocking military promotions over objections to a policy of giving time off to service members who are seeking an abortion or fertility treatment.


The Senate sidestepped the block by Alabama’s Tommy Tuberville by calling for a full vote of the appointment of a new Joint Chiefs of Staff. The continued blockade of that promotion and others has angered Illinois Senator and combat veteran Tammy Duckworth.



Hundreds more promotions are in limbo and will be difficult to handle if a full Senate vote is needed on each one.
