Federal appeals court rules male-only draft constitutional

Federal appeals court finds male-only draft iss constitutionalA federal appeals court ruled Thursday that requiring only men to register for the military draft is constitutional.

The Supreme Court ruled in 1981 that women could be excluded from registering since combat jobs were closed to them.

Combat jobs have since been opened to women, but the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans said Thursday it cannot reverse the Supreme’s Court precedent.

TVNL Comment:  The solution: open combat jobs to women.  It's time.
