NEWS — DANGER — OPPORTUNITY re: Military Draft

A federal judge rules it’s unconstitutional to register ONLY men for the military draft.

For a long time before that decision, the federal government had been studying what to do about the draft:

— Register women too

— Require mandatory “national service” in military or civilian jobs

— Abolish the draft altogether.

I’ve been following this closely, and there is no indication yet what decision the federal inquiry will propose.

Now that a federal judge has ruled it unconstitutional to register only men, this forces the issue into one of the options listed above.

Read this interesting information from a modern draft resister:

“A modern-day draft, if marketed carefully and cleverly”

SIGN THIS PETITION TO END THE DRAFT ALTOGETHER:

Sign the Petition: End Draft Registration Once and for ALL!

Here is another viewpoint on ending male-only draft registration by (1) including women, or (2) ending the draft altogether:

Draft Registration Will Be Either Ended or Imposed on Women
