The Army general of U.S. forces in Northern Iraq has banned pregnancy among military personnel in his command, NBC News reported on Friday.
Anyone who becomes pregnant or impregnates another servicemember, including married couples assigned to the same unit, could face a court-martial and jail time, according to an order issued by Maj. Gen. Anthony Cucolo.
The order, which went into effect on Nov. 4, was first reported by the military publication Stars and Stripes.
Maybe something in the environment that would harm an unborn child, depleted uranium? That's not a secret anymore is it..

People should be treated like people and not resources, if your a manager / director and have that approach you do get the extra mile when it's needed.
If you do your job in three hours versus eight then why not have a break when you want?
Freedom of choice is not a freedom granted by our constitution. Your employer has the right to choose his or her ideal employee, just like you have the right to choose your ideal employer. That 'right' is just an ideal, not a law.

So what about freedom of choice? If you do your job as well as the next man or woman what is the problem?
Should I as a business leader pick on any group based on a statistical criteria (colour, religion, sex, personal habit) and fire them? No I think not, diversity breeds innovation = success. Any good business leader with half a brain cell understands that generals don't win wars it's the troop regardless if they smoke or are pregnant.
Yes. All my life
Do you live in the land of the free by any chance?
Edit: Oh and you do get paid to do a single job, if not then change it.
