So does this also mean that some in congress have future plans for the draft into a new war?
Supreme Court declines to hear case questioning whether women must also register for the draft
“Requiring only men to register for the draft reflects the outdated and sexist notion that women are less fit to serve in the military and that men are less able to stay home as caregivers in the event of an armed conflict,” said Ria Tabacco Mar, director of the Women’s Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union. “Such stereotypes demean both men and women.”
The modern registration system was adopted during World War I, according to court documents. The draft inducted nearly 3 million men into the military for World War I, more than 10 million for World War II, 1.5 million for the Korean War and nearly 2 million for Vietnam, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.
