NO declawed cats should be let outside as they are defenseless.
My cats do go outside but they are 100% supervised and have been trained where they are allowed. I, personally believe that cats benefit from the stimulation they get outside, but only if they are safe.
The trick with cats, is a schedule, and they will get used to what ever schedule you put them on, including, no outside time, or limited, supervised outside time. You may also want to consider a cat run/pen so they can get some outside time.
