End U.S. Draft Registration
The U.S. government is going to either expand draft registration to young women (signing them up to be forced against their will to kill and die) in the name of “equal rights,” or it is going to end this outdated barbarism. Contrary to popular myth a draft does not decrease the chances or duration or extent of wars.
Before the end of December 31, 2019, you can use this form to submit an official public comment as a member of the public to the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service asking the Commission to recommend that Congress enact H.R. 5492, a new bill to end draft registration.
If you are from the United States, please also click here to quickly email your Representative and your two Senators to urge them to co-sponsor H.R. 5492.
