The Selective Service System is a means by which the US government has the individuals information on whom is potentially subject to military enrollment.
Men register for the selective service and women do not in America, why? Women are always complaining about wanting equal rights and being treated the same . Though, I never see complaints stating they don’t have to register for the selective service, like men do.
Men are required by law to register with the selective service, Men will be breaking the law if they do not register. They would violate the Military Selective Service Act, be imprisoned for up to 5 years and carry a fine of no more than $250,000. Federal jobs and financial aid become void if the male has not registered with the selective service. If these penalties are only deemed accountable for males, how is this considered constitutional concerning the 14th amendment?
Women have been fighting for equal rights in the work place and practically everywhere else in society. Equal rights are needed for everyone in society. Though, this is not obtainable as long as women are not held accountable by law for registering with the selective service.
I believe everyone should have to register for the selective service. If you choose to not register, then the same penalties should be held accountable for men and women. On another hand, women and men will never be equal until they both are required, or are not required to register with the selective service.
