What do you think about the House Armed Services Committee recently approving a law whichwould mandate women to register for military draft as men do currently? Mothers used to worry about their sons going off to war, now they have to worry about their daughters.
I think it's the right thing to do. Women should be equally responsible for defending this country if we get ourselves into a situation where the draft becomes necessary.
I am a staunch believer in equal rights and to me that includes equal responsibility to serve in the armed forces if the need arises. However, for both men and women, I wish there was never a need.
ISIS is laughing at us and eagerly awaiting 18 year old drafted girls to be captured and turned into sex slaves.
This is what MOST AMERICANS fear. Female POWs as evidenced by history endured heinous punishments & tortures. I am all for equality but women shouldn't be assigned to combat duty-NO WAY!
The question isn't asking about combat, it's asking about being required to serve.
