uring the war, people would protest the draft by printing out anti-draft flyers. The government stopped the flyers from being distributed in the name of the draft. This caused an even bigger uproar because some people believed that the military had full right to stop anti-war speech but others believe that they were interfering with the first amendment, which guarantees freedom of speech, religion, press, petition, and protest. Next, we will discuss what legal moves have been made in order to shut down the selective service draft. During the early years if the draft many people took the government to court claiming the draft was unfair. Very few small court cases where even reported on because most ended the same way with the judge ruling in favor of the army. One case did make it to the Supreme court. In Arver vs. the US. the court agreed again that it was constitutional. Overall little progress has been made in the war of repealing the draft over the last hundred years. Finally, women in the draft. Ever since women have been allowed to participate in all combat role the question is ” Should women have to sign up for the draft too? ” On June 15th, 2017 the Senate passed a bill that required women who turn 18 after the year 2018 to sign up for the selective service draft. Although I believe it is important to include women I think the whole system of the draft should be taken down or revised. Later the bill was pulled so it could be reviewed. In conclusion, the selective service draft is an outdated and flawed system. I do believe that people should fight for their country if it is absolutely necessary to preserve the good of the people, but if someone has strong moral objections against the selective service draft. The selective service draft should be disbanded and my explanation of its history, the Vietnam war, legal movements, and women’s role in the fight against the selective service draft may have convinced the reader to rethink the draft.
