On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted to approve the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of a total of $768 billion. What you might not have heard was women would have to register for the Selective Service System like men if the draft was reinstated, the Daily Wire reported. There were 181 Democrats and 135 Republicans who voted for the bill.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) told the press he supported our men and women in uniform and stood alongside our men and women in uniform.

However…

“I do not support is blindly supporting legislation that is critically flawed at its core because of, oh, we’re in the minority. Look, right now, today, if you vote for the NDAA, you are voting to draft our daughters,” he continued. “There is no other position you can take. The current law of the land does not have a requirement that our daughters be drafted, okay? If this NDAA is passed and signed into law, then our daughters will be required to sign up for Selective Service and make themselves available for the draft.”


Roy said during late-night deliberations on the committee’s annual defense policy bill, lawmakers voted 35-24 to adopt an amendment from Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-Pa.) to expand registration for the Selective Service System beyond men in early September.

Women of the ages 18-25 would need to register for the Selective Service System like males.

“Under no circumstances should a civilized country, the United States of America, with the ability to have a volunteer force with the size and the caliber and the strength we have to say that we’re going to force women into being drafted into the United States military,” Roy maintained.
