Provision Requiring Women to be Included in Military Draft Dropped From Defense Bill

Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.8

The House and Senate Armed Services Committees dropped a provision from the final version of the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act that would have required American women over the age of 18 to register for the military draft. Earlier attempts to kill the proposal failed because lawmakers from both parties supported drafting women into combat. The move is a big win for conservative activists who opposed the provision from its inception.
