FSM: Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) Will Destroy Family SanctityTopics: Faith, Political News and commentaries
The Obama administration's assault on our free speech was addressed in the previous post. However, in yet another assault on our rights, Mr. Obama's tremendous dependence on multilateralism and his support for the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is yet another assault on our rights, the rights of parents to parent their children. And because he believes the CRC is needed and has no qualms in surrendering American sovereignty and Americans' parental rights to the international community, Americans need to become informed of the threat and speak out against it.
Adam Raezler explains at FSM:
The Convention on the Rights of the Child, an international treaty commonly referred to as CRC, is one of the greatest threats to parental rights our country has ever witnessed. Fasten your seatbelts for the fight for ratification.Read more ...
The CRC's devastating impact on American children and their families can be seen easily in the text of the treaty and its application in both foreign states and in recent U.S. court decisions. Do not be misled by the arguments of American legislators, legal scholars and transnationalists who say U.S. ratification of the CRC would prove our commitment to the protection of the world's children and their rights to the international community. The CRC is in no way a harmless treaty; it is an instrument used by transnationalists for widespread social change, beginning right here in our own country. Similar to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) treaty, U.S. ratification will in no way provide the children of the world with any additional forms of protections they don't already enjoy under United States law, just as CEDAW affords women no rights beyond what they currently enjoy under U.S. law.
The 54 articles within the treaty do not provide American children with any protection from any dangers that they do not already enjoy in the U.S. We have domestic legislation that prohibits children from being forced to serve in the military and that criminalizes child prostitution and sexual exploitation, but our nation has always left matters regarding the raising of our children to their parents. During the most recent presidential campaign and since his election, President Obama has, on numerous occasions, expressed his deep commitment to satisfying the desires of internationalists verses protecting Americans' basic freedoms and sovereignty, disregarding all precedent set by former administrations on these issues. President Bill Clinton signed the CRC in 1995 but never submitted it to the Senate for advice and consent, as he knew the treaty would be dead on arrival. President George W. Bush chose not to push for Senate ratification, as he fully recognized the threat that the CRC presented to American sovereignty. However there has been a surge in the push for the United States to ratify the CRC since Obama took office. (Emphasis added)
