U.S. Male Only Draft Ruled Unconstitutional
In this day and age should the United States male only draft be changed to a male and female draft?
NBC news is reporting on a federal judge from Texas that has ruled that an all-male draft is unconstitutional. That seems like a very reasonable ruling in today’s culture where woman and men are deemed equal in all other aspects of life.
Back in 1981 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that our male-only draft was "fully justified" because women were ineligible for combat roles. The ruling came from the case of Rostker v. Goldberg.
This new case was brought by the National Coalition For Men, a men's rights group.
U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ruled late Friday that while historical restrictions on women serving in combat "may have justified past discrimination," men and women are now equally able to fight.
Because back in 2015, the Pentagon had lifted all restrictions for women in our military.
Something you should know and take into consideration, this ruling came in the form of a declaratory judgment and not an injunction. What that means is this court didn't specifically order the U.S. government on how they should change Selective Service to make it constitutional.
I found the following very amusing. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) calls themselves a nonprofit civil rights monitor and is a hate group themselves, compares the National Coalition for Men, to male supremacist groups seeking to roll back protections for women.
Well SPLC are women equal to men or not? How is not forcing women to register in our draft rolling back their protections? In fact it is encouraging the women’s movement.
Are women now allowed to fight in combat: that answer would be yes.
If women are equal to men in all aspects, at least that is what we are told, and they can fight in combat why should they not be ordered to register for the draft?
The reason I believe that the SPLC believes that women are not equal to men in this aspect is due to welfare. Why do I say welfare, well men who fail to register with the Selective Service System at their 18th birthday can be denied public benefits such as federal employment and student loans.
Should women be made, just like men to register for the draft by their 18th birthday, you decide.
