Obama Supports Forcing Women To Register For Military Draft
Continuing the debate over a massive expansion of the Selective Service, the White House today announced that President Obama is in favor of expanding registration for the military draft to include all women when they turn 18.
“As old barriers for military service are being removed, the administration supports – as a logical next step – women registering for the Selective Service,” said Ned Price, a spokesman for Obama’s National Security Council.
The White House had previously expressed neutrality on the controversy, but took a position in a statement to USA TODAY on Thursday.
Under current law, women can volunteer to serve in the military but aren’t required to register for the draft. All adult men must register within 30 days of their 18th birthday.
