US strikes out pregnancy rules in Iraq


The decision follows concern that the provisions put in place by Major General Anthony Cucolo, commander of US forces in north Iraq, could lead to some soldiers being court-martialed.

“In the normal course of standing up United States Forces-Iraq (USF-I), a review of all existing orders and policies of several commands has been underway,” First Lieutenant Elizabeth Feste said in an e-mail. “The updated USF-I policy does not include a pregnancy provision. All requests by subordinate units to impose further restrictions of activities will require approval of the USF-I Commander,” he said.
