Health Care Workers Could
Face Military Draft
September 8, 2003
In the event of a national emergency the Pentagon will draft experienced medical personnel, including physicians, nurses, and medics, reports Jon Dougherty of WorldNetDaily.com. The "Health Care Personnel Delivery System" plan was authorized by Congress in 1987 (Public Law 100-180).
Personnel from 62 Medical Specialties Could Be Drafted
Dougherty explains, "The plan calls for the president to issue a proclamation ordering 13.5 million health-care professionals to register for a draft...Following the proclamation, Congress would quickly pass legislation authorizing the draft of health-care workers aged 20-44, and for the first time in U.S. history, the draft would include women. The Pentagon would then inform the Selective Service System of the number of personnel needed for each of the 62 medical specialties."
