What would the answer be to a situation like this, sterilization (at least for a certain amount of time)? Training the parental instinct out of her? I don't have an answer for this one.

but... here is something that I am mixed on.
Imagine that a female soldier that has valuable information is captured. At first her training works out great and she never says a word about the information she knows, no matter what they do to her.
But what if she were to be raped, then got pregnant, then have a baby, and they used the baby as leverage against her.
I really don't want to play the devils advocate here, and in no way am I saying that women are not capable of fighting on the front lines. I am just trying to let people see things from a different point of view.

It would be an absolutely huge deal, propaganda wise, for any terrorist organization to do this. I would expect to see them targeting female soldiers for abduction once they are finally out there in the field in greater numbers.
