Here is an idea that should have died at conception. For women to join a volunteer army and put themselves in harms way would be their choice and I would support that. I would NEVER support a draft of women particularly in this age group.

Imagine all of the young mothers that could be dragged from their children, even infant children. Imagine a 22 year old mother of two, awaiting her GI husband's return from deployment getting a draft notice ordering her to report for duty while husband has months left on his current deployment.

Imagine a GI getting home from deployment, perhaps disabled, only to find that his spouse is being sent to the hell he just came home from.

I can see the( terrible already) suicide rates skyrocketing.
