Australia navy in breast op row
‘Australia’s opposition Labor Party has questioned the need for female sailors to be given breast enlargements paid for with public money.
An armed forces spokesman defended the operations, saying they were carried out for psychological reasons, not to make sailors “look sexy”.
Brigadier Andrew Nikolic said the “holistic needs” of service personnel were considered under defence policy.
But he said breast augmentations were not routinely funded by the military.’
