The Supreme Court has refused to take a case meant to force women to register for the military just like the men do. Personally, I think it is just a way to try to weaken our military. At least one of the liberal justices voted not to accept the case and that was Sonia Sotomayor, who said:
“It remains to be seen, of course, whether Congress will end gender-based registration under the Military Selective Service Act. But at least for now, the Court’s longstanding deference to Congress on matters of national defense and military affairs cautions against granting review while Congress actively weighs the issue.”
The issue has been taken up several times in congress but they were never able to gain any traction on the issue. If you make women register they could argue that more women need to be called if there is ever a draft again in this country. I may be wrong but my guess is that most women do not want to take combat training. But if some do this bill would not aid them because they can currently volunteer for the service and request combat training under current rules.
The court surrenders the decision to congress and the court will deal with it on constitutional grounds later. Democrats suggest that Congress take up the issue and either allow women to be signed up for the draft or to quit registering men for the military. That could very well be what they actually want but we must have the registrations in case we ever need to go back to drafting people for the military.

The Obama regime in 2013 lifted a ban on women serving in combat roles and the men’s coalition used this as a basis for their argument, citing the 5th Amendment, CNBC reported.
“The registration requirement is one of the last sex-based classifications in federal law,” Ria Tabacco Mar, an ACLU attorney representing the men’s coalition, wrote in court papers. “It imposes selective burdens on men, reinforces the notion that women are not full and equal citizens, and perpetuates stereotypes about men’s and women’s capabilities.”
“We urge Congress to update the law either by requiring everyone to register for the draft, regardless of their gender, or by not requiring anyone to register,” Attorney Ria Tabacco Mar said Monday in a statement.
