Rangel Proposes Bills to Reinstate Draft, Require Women to Sign Up

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) wants to bring back the military draft and require women to register for the Selective Service.

On Friday, Rangel reintroduced the so-called “draft bill,” known officially as “The National Universal Service Act” (H.R. 747), and “The All American Selective Service Act” (H.R. 748), which would require all women between 18 and 25 to register.

We must question why and how we go to war, and who decides to send our men and women into harm’s way.”

Rangel said if America’s young women were forced to fight, citizens would be more reticent to go to war.
