Following the Pentagon’s decision to allow women into all combat roles, the White House has confirmed they are considering changes to the Selective Service Act to force women to register for future military drafts.
Under the current law, all men have to register for the draft at age 18, and can be called through age 26, but has not actually conscripted any into military service since December of 1972. Women are not required to register.
Defense Secretary Ash Carter is apparently the one that’s been pushing this “review,” citing the growing role of women in the military, and the new decision to put them in all combat roles. Congress is waiting for a Pentagon report on the usefulness of conscripting women.
Reps. Duncan Hunter (R – CA) and Charles Rangel (D – NY) are both urging the extension of the law to include women, with Hunter citing the possibility of World War III, and Rangel just supporting reinstating the draft universally and immediately.
Rep. Mike Coffman (R – CO), on the other hand, says the Selective Service system is a waste of money, and instead of expanding it to include women, this would be a good opportunity to just scrap it entirely, saying if there was a sudden need for a draft in the future it would be easy enough to pass a new version.

Drafting women might change the way women vote in the future.
Once in an uniform there should be and there isn’t male or female they are but soldiers, in the US it is a Voluntarily chosen occupation within a Mercenary Force.
There should be no Selective Service Act, it has emplacedpanels in every state and territory so no it is not dormant; and males are “expected” to sign up for its voluntary enslavements, and it holds repercussions upon all that do not sign into it’s mandatory volunteerism, shows true stripe of both political parties who want to be able to call up full nation to protect their fubars from direct actions of the abused.
This military Mercenary force can now act both as foreign enemy fighters and is in fact the domestic tyrants nations founders warned against.
