house Bill H.R. 1575

Does a Counseling Program for Female Vets Need to be Permanent?

Argument in favor

While women have been taking on a greater role in the U.S. military, the mental health care available to them is lagging behind and needs to expand. This is a step in the right direction that can be built upon in the future.

I do not understand how this question could even come up. Obviously, it's a no-brainer.

It shouldn't be needed, but until woman receive the rights of our male population, men's violence toward women will probably continue.

Stop kicking the can down the road. You can do this and more. This is a good start.

Argument opposed

This counseling should be available to all women veterans — whether they recently separated from the military or if they left the Armed Forces decades ago. Including childcare would encourage more women veterans to use these services.

The fact that this is targeted for just women is a catastrophe. It should be for EVERYONE who served.

As a disabled veteran, I can attest to the fact that female vets receive as high quality care as the males do and it's tailored to the needs of the females.

Exsisting programs are adequate. The VA is short of funds now.
