A Federal Court in Texas ruled that a male-only draft is unconstitutional.
A federal judge in Texas has declared that the all-male military draft is unconstitutional, ruling that “the time has passed” for a debate on whether women belong in the military.
The decision dealsÂ the biggest legal blowÂ toÂ the Selective Service System since the Supreme Court upheld the draft in 1981. InÂ Rostker v. Goldberg, the court ruled that the male-onlyÂ draft was “fully justified” because women were ineligible for combat roles.
ButÂ U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ruled late FridayÂ that while historical restrictions on women serving in combat “may have justified past discrimination,” men and women are now equally able to fight. In 2015, the Pentagon lifted all restrictions for women in military service.Â
