Sex-ban on US troops not working, 15 female soldiers get pregnant in Afghanistan

The American Armys ban on sex hardly seems to be working with over fifteen pregnant women soldiers being sent home from Afghanistan.


London, May 16 : The American Army's ban on sex hardly seems to be working with over fifteen pregnant women soldiers being sent home from Afghanistan.

The army had launched a vigourous campaign to counter rising incidents of pregnancy among women soldiers in Afghanistan, and measures like posters urging use of contraception have been put up in the medical centre and free condoms are being supplied in army camouflage tins.

But it has clearly met with little success.

"There have been so many pregnancies and the Army is starting to worry," the Daily Express quoted a source, as saying.

Pregnant soldiers cause operational problems because they have to be replaced and seldom return within six months of giving birth, the paper reports.
