Rand Paul to Introduce Bill to Abolish Selective Service (the Draft) to Remember Muhammad Ali

From CN2 [1], a news outlet in Rand Paul’s native state of Kentucky:

The bill titled ‘The Muhammad Ali Voluntary Service Act’ will be presented to Congress in honor of the famed boxer who refused to serve in the Vietnam War.

On April, 28 1967 the heavy weight champion was stripped of his title for refusing to be inducted in the United States Army. Ali, a Muslim and conscientious objector, was convicted of draft evasion — a conviction that would later be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
