I don't favor it. Doing combat requires physical qualities that men have and most women don't. Many women do serve in the military, but they should not serve in combat. I have always felt that men should protect society and women should be the nurturers. Only women can give life, they should not have to kill others in war situations. I just don't like the idea of women in combat, we have men to do that.

Last week as a last hoorah, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta lifted the ban on women serving combat even though women have been serving in combat for quite some time. Now, a new Rasmussen Report shows 59 percent of voters favor women serving in full combat positions.

Most voters think women in the military should be able to fight in combat just like men do. But they still believe overwhelmingly that women need to pass the same physical tests as men if they’re in special forces like the Green Berets and Navy SEALs.
