It’s time to end the U.S. military draft, once and for all

Article here. Excerpt:

'We may be months away from ending the U.S. military draft, once and for all.

After a court ruled that the male-only draft was unconstitutional, a Congress-appointed commission has been studying whether to draft women into the U.S. military. The commission will make its report in March, and will likely either advocate for expanding draft registration to women or abolishing the draft, once and for all.

Instead of expanding the draft to women, it’s time to end the draft for all genders.

Drafting women is a deeply unpopular idea. For months, people have been testifying against it to the commission. Even the former director of the Selective Service thinks it's time to get rid of draft registration altogether.

Currently, the U.S. military draft is in a state of dysfunction. For decades, millions of men have refused and/or failed to register.'
