If the Draft is activated, should Women declare Conscientous Objector status to avoid being drafted?

 The Quakers do it.  The Amish do it.  Why not conservative Christian groups?  I belong to a non-denominational Christian Bible believing church, independent of any organized church - think Pentecostal, long skirts and long hair for females.  My girls will NOT register for the draft if there is one!  Other pacifist religious groups could also declare CO status.  What other groups do you think would want to be exempt from the draft - if there is one of course.

When did females have to start signing up for the draft? I never did and my 18yo sd didn't either.

Women do not have to register for the draft. *FACEPALM* be aware THEN preach awareness.

There will never be a draft... Know why? Because volunteers make better recruits since they actually WANT to join.

don't worry I'm sure the military would be rather happy that they did do that honestly.

 its a fact that the draft produced some of the lowest quality recruits during war times. that would be an extreme last resort for our military especially considering they are kicking people OUT now..they don't want more brought in especially those that are forced in because they would most likely just whine and run off later on anyways.
