NCFM Selective Service case update, ACLU files supporting Amicus Brief

October 19, 2019

selective service

For those of you following our Military Selective Service Act case, you should be interested in knowing the ACLU Foundation of Texas and the Women’s Rights Project American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, on their own volition, filed a supportive amicus brief (click here), concluding “[t]hat the Fifth Circuit should affirm the District Court’s correct conclusion that heightened scrutiny should apply to this case, and that under that rigorous standard, the MSSA is unconstitutional.”

A few weeks ago, we sent a letter and email to the President of the National Organization for Women (click here) asking that NOW submit a supportive amicus brief. In this post we initially and mistakenly questioned whether they would support this amicus. NOW was a signer of the amicus, which we missed. We first offer an apology and second express appreciation for their support.

    Yes! Female Selective Service registration is long overdue. I wish you success in correcting this institutional gender discrimination against men.

    NOW , in the 1980’s officially did not support military conscription in general , however if there was to be military conscription it DID support conscription of women equally. If they now do not support equality and responsibility , this would highlight a glaring hypocrisy in their whole women’s movement. It would show clearly the insincerity of their desire for real equality.
