Should women have to register for the draft? A Congressional panel will be weighing in on that question this week. The National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service has formed three years ago after the Senate and House were divided on the issue. Joe Heck, a retired brigadier general who heads up the commission, wouldn’t say what the panel will decide but doesn’t expect to “remain with the status quo”. Either way, the military insists it has no plans to implement a draft anytime soon.
"Either it's yes, women should have to register just on the basis of equality, or no, women should not have to register because they have a different role in American society," said commission Chairman Joe Heck. https://t.co/L6FfOMgeCr
