Sen. Ted Cruz is continuing to fight against the nonsensical, immoral, and just plain bad idea that women should be drafted.

He’s heading off to a conference about the bill, and luckily, he’s promised to oppose the provision completely.

“I will continue to work as a conferee to oppose the provision that makes our daughters subject to being drafted into combat,” he said in a press release.

Thank you, Ted Cruz, for understanding what a bad idea this would be and for using your power to oppose it. It’s crazy that we live in a time in which this needs to be said; but, unfortunately, we do.

A civilization that sends its mothers and daughters into combat is serious about neither civilization nor combat.
