Take Action: Don't Draft Our Daughters

In a recent GOP presidential debate, candidates were asked about whether or not "young women [should] be required to sign up for selective service in case of a national emergency." Of the candidates who were asked, none seemed to have a problem with requiring America's young women to register for the draft.

We haven't had a draft in over 40 years, so it's not difficult to see how some may not think this is an important issue. But this issue is extremely important -- both to the readiness of our military forces and to the future fabric of our country.

For years, women have served in the U.S. military honorably and with distinction. That fact is indisputable. But these women have served on a voluntary basis -- the choice to serve was theirs alone. Requiring women to register for the draft is to forcibly put our daughters in harm's way against their will.

Everyone in the military knows that once in, you don't get to choose where you will end up serving. As the current administration has made abundantly clear, the U.S. military is now operating as a testing ground for social change -- at the expense of military readiness. As combat infantry and Special Forces specialties are opened to women, it only follows that if a draft should occur, conscripted women would inevitably be placed in units where the mission is to find and engage the enemy, ...

Daddy's Girl: How Fatherlessness Impacts Early Sexual Activity, Teen Pregnancy, and Sexual Abuse

by Rob Schwarzwalder and Natasha Tax

The pathologies and moral crises of our era do not stand in isolation. They are entwined, inextricably. The pound of flesh demanded by Shylock from Antonio in “The Merchant of Venice” could not be removed without the loss of Antonio’s blood. The veins of the victim, laced throughout his body, were impossible to segregate from the flesh itself. So it is with the intersecting layers of family life, human sexual behavior, public policy, and the well-being of our children. Certainly among these layers, fatherhood is a theme ... (more)

Unconditional: Christian love when a child 'comes out'

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in Canon and Culture on February 11, 2016. President Obama spoke of many things in his State of the Union message; his take on events and priorities, foreign and domestic, is very different than any conservatives would give them. For example, he claims all Americans are “bound by a common creed,” yet he never defines it. The second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence explains what that creed is – that there is a God, ... (more)
