  • Federal judge rules draft unconstitutional

    Well, sort of. He ruled that it's discriminatory against men in that women can now serve in all roles in the military and therefore unconstitutional. Looks like it might be forced on the government to start registering women for the draft too...

    Absolutely. Equality demands it.

      Does that mean we will have to have not only field hospitals but also field day care? You could work it out by only drafting one parent. It's just that men can't breast feed.

        NO, just make it regulation that there is no pregnancy while serving on active duty unless you are career.

          I'm sure the way it would work, based on how it's done now, is that only one parent could be drafted, the other receiving a deferment. With the military right now, single parents with dependent children in their custody, are required to have arrangements to have the children cared for when they are deployed away from their home station or on an unaccompanied tour.
          Failure to do so is a chargeable offense and can result in both disciplinary action and possible OTH or worse discharge.

            Someone lied to us. Men has been breast feeding since the dawn of time. Did you think that boy babies had to gnaw on coconuts?

                ???
                In olden times, wet nurses were the answer. After that, ever hear of "bottle fed"?

                  LOL...good luck with that.
                  Conservatives in the U.S. won't be happy until Jim Crow returns and "White Heterosexual Only" signs are legalized.

                    Well, there is a regulation that if you get pregnant while deployed on a ship or to the field, you and whoever got you pregnant will be court martialed for disobeying orders and endangering the readiness of the unit. That's different from getting pregnant in port or while at your home base.

                      Right, and it would take very little for draftees to be forbidden to become pregnant until their initial obligation was fulfilled and they re-enlisted.

                        Very easy to do. The army used to court-martial soldiers who got severely sunburned and thus were unfit for duty when their unit deployed.

                        The military does not run by, nor it is bound to, civilian laws and rules.

                          The way that works right now is if you get pregnant say just before your unit deploys, you get held in the US until you either have an abortion or carry to term. Once that happens, you are then deployed with your unit or another unit for a FULL tour. This rule was made because some women would get pregnant to avoid deployment, then have an abortion say a month later after their unit or ship left, and they'd get to stay with the command they were assigned to in a cushy job (because of the pregnancy) instead of being reassigned to their deployed unit. Not anymore.

                          I was with the Navy shipyard in San Diego when all that originally started happening. The unit was called Shore Intermediate Maintenance Activity or SIMA. The joke there was SIMA stood for "Sailors In Maternity Attire."
