Stop the encroachment of United Nations initiatives which dictate how children should be raised!
The proposed Parental Rights Amendment (PRA) is being pushed as a way to “protect parents” from the encroachment of United Nations initiatives to dictate how children should be raised – as being spelled out in the form of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)
“We don’t need a Constitutional amendment concerning parental rights to stop the treaty. We need individuals to stand up and tell their Senators not to ratify the treaty if, and when, it comes up for a vote. Tell them to just say “No!””
The CRC is a dangerous Treaty because:
– The CRC places obligations on the States, (i.e. the countries which ratify the treaty) to protect children against governmental actions and intrusions. It would also demand that States enact legislation to dictate what parents can and cannot do regarding their own children.
– The CRC obligates governments to provide certain programs for children’s benefit, setting standards for governmental policies regarding children.
Committee on the Rights of the Child will monitor Treaty Compliance. The Committee is made up of 18 "experts of high moral standing and recognized competence in the field covered by this Convention."
The CRC gives this Committee an unlimited mandate to dictate the affairs of a nation regarding child rearing. The Committee’s reach will extend into demanding changes to a country's legal system, education system, and social-welfare institutions in order to bring the country’s laws into compliance with the Convention.
But the Parental Rights Amendment is just as bad:

PARENTAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT FOR THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION
Sounds good right?
Well, it isn’t, and here is why:
With a constitutional amendment, the road is cleared for the
courts to say that the federal government also has the right to regulate.
Both the PRA and the CRC are horrible
pieces of legislation. Both should be avoided entirely. Thankfully, the
The way to stop that encroachment on parental rights is NOT by a constitutional amendment.
Advocating for a
Parental Rights Amendment
is not the way to go to solve this problem.
Telling the Senators to vote “No”
on the CRC Treaty
is the way to solve the problem.
There are only a hundred Senators.
There are millions of us.
The time to act is now.
Tell Them To Reject the CRC Treaty
NOT to adopt a Parental Rights Constitutional Amendment
