I’m sure they’ll all have to sign up for the draft,too./sarc
What the heck. Now America is going to put more of our young ladies, sisters and mothers into war? I know the Israelis are big on everyone stepping up to protect the country but does the USA really need to do this?
Yup. From fudgepackers to dykes.
Obama's daughters? Why, is there some law that includes Obamas in draft registrations?
I wanted to put that to Clinton in the '96 San Diego debate but didn't get my chance.
And that, unfortunately, is **EXACTLY** the problem.
The primary legal ground for drafting only men rather than both men and women is the combat exclusion. Eliminate the combat exclusion and the Supreme Court will probably have no way to avoid declaring the Selective Service system unconstitutional.
That's merely a formality today. There may be a day it is not a formality at all.
I'm afraid this is going to come back and bite big time in ways that the women who want a combat MOS never expected.
It's one thing to let women volunteer for something (leaving aside the question of whether or not they can do it without lowering the standards). It is a very different thing to start drafting women.
