Consequences of women in combat
Our Secretary of Defense has decided to allow women in combat roles. This will translate directly to requiring women to register with the selective service for a possible draft notice into the armed forces. This is due to a Supreme Court decision in 1981, Rostker v. Goldberg.
This article talks about it: csmonitor.com/USA/Military/2013/0123/Women-in-combat-Will-they-have-to-register-for-the-draft.
Please contact your political representatives and federal and state levels to express your opinion of this. A constitutional amendment, preserving the right of women to choose to be in the military or not is not excessive. A short-term solution would be to reverse Mr. Panetta’s decision.
I understand that part of the reasoning to allow women in combat roles is so the highest ranks can be open for women.
Also, some people think women in combat is fine. However, in our political and legal framework, the consequence will be that your daughters and granddaughters can be drafted.
