The House Armed Services Committee approved a measure Wednesday, 4-27-16 requiring all women age 18 to register for the military draft, a move that comes just a few months after the Defense Department lifted all gender based restrictions on the frontline combat units.
The House committee votes to require women to register for draft. It passed the committee by a vote of 32-30. Hunter’s amendment will be included in the defense policy bill that authorizes the defense budget for the fiscal year that begins. On Oct -1 The full House will take up the bill then.
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) said she supported Hunter’s measure.
“I actually think if we want equality in this country, if we want women to be treated precisely like men are treated and that they should not be discriminated against, we should be willing to support a universal conscription,” she said.
Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), a retired Air Force fighter pilot, said draftees aren’t exclusively sent to the front lines. There are plenty of other useful, noncombat positions for them to fill, she said.
