From FRC’s Tony Perkins:

When the Biden administration unveiled its new maternity flight suits this spring, a lot of people were incredulous. Why would the military waste its time on something so unnecessary? But now, with Democrats about to force women to register for the draft, it’s clear: we’re going to need a lot more of them.

According to Biden’s party, forcing women into combat is the only path to “pure equality.” Of course, the idea of parity probably sounds great until you’re putting your only daughter on a bus to boot camp. That’s the uncomfortable reality facing a lot of parents as the House debates the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) this week. Thanks to Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-Pa.) and a handful of Republicans, America is on the brink of a fundamental departure from the Western worldview by asking women to fight its wars.

According to Democrats, that’s only fair. “The current male-only registration sends a message to women — not only that they are not vital to the defense of the country, but also that they are not expected to participate in defending it,” Houlahan argued. Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.) was appalled, firing back, “We don’t need to draft women in order for women to have equality in this nation. Women are of worth and of value right now — and we are equal with men without having to pass a new law that would require 50 percent of this country, our daughters, our sisters, and our wives, to have to be drafted.” The committee disagreed — breaking with principle and public opinion to include the change in the final bill.
