Ret. Gen. Dennis Laich to Newsmax TV: Should Women Register For Draft?

The government might have to consider requiring women to register for the selective service when they turn 18 — just as men do — in the name of equality, retired Army Major Gen. Dennis Laich told Newsmax TV.

Laich spoke with John Bachman on Newsmax Now about a government project he's working on that looks at the future of the U.S. military and its force of volunteers.

"If women are not required to register, then men will say well wait a minute, in the interest of equality, why should we? And if that happens and it's a successful argument, we'll see selective service go by the boards. Or at least run the risk of it," Laich said.

"And if that happens, we will impair national security because never in the history of our nation have we had a mass mobilization without conscription."
