DoD members, retirees, family members and other health care beneficiaries who desire an abortion should be aware that, although there are no DoD policies which inhibit her right to have an abortion, federal law does limit abortion services in DoD medical facilities (and limits DoD funding for abortions in civilian medical facilities). Generally, abortion services (and funding for abortion services) are available from DoD only under specific circumstances such as when the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest or when the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus was carried to term.
