Tommy Tuberville Won't Promote Hundreds of Military Members Because He's Mad About Abortion

E-mail Print PDF

Tommy TubervilleRepublican Sen. Tommy Tuberville (Ala.) is holding up military appointments because he’s mad about abortion. Yes, the former Auburn football coach-turned-legislator isn’t supporting the troops because he’s mad that the Pentagon is providing support for military members who need abortions.

In particular, he’s mad a new policy that took effect on March 18 and gives service members and dependents three weeks of administrative leave for abortion-related travel. This, of course, is a direct result of Roe v. Wade being overturned—something Tuberville’s party fought decades to achieve—and abortion becoming inaccessible in dozens of states.

So, naturally, he is stalling the promotion of 160 generals and flag officers and two civilian nominations, according to Politico. Once you reach a certain rank in the military, each subsequent promotion requires Senate approval. Normally this is a very smooth, very run-of-the-mill process, but Tuberville is changing that.
