Many are using the measure and Clinton's approval of it to criticize what they see as her pro-war, pro-military intervention record.

But others argue this is a move towards parity that's long overdue. Women have served in the military for decades. They shouldn't be exempted from the draft due to their gender. War may not be the goal, but in terms of preparing for it, fair is fair.
