Remember the feelings in your heart as you held your baby in your arms?
Remember your love, hopes, and dreams?
Did you ever in your wildest imagination consider the possibility that politicians and government bureaucrats would consider themselves more able than you to make basic life choices for your child?
Yes, the same people who are making a mess of the government want to invade your home and make important family decisions without your permission.
Worse yet, some of these people are United Nations bureaucrats from foreign cultures, with different values, and with a total lack of accountability to U.S. voters. They have created intrusive treaties and documents that will have a very negative impact on families in the United States.
For example, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) stipulates that children have rights that are equal to parental rights. If children disagree with their parents, the government (not the parents) becomes the authority to examine the facts and make the decisions for the family.
This treaty claims to give rights to children, but in reality, it is about stripping rights from parents. In so doing, the CRC makes children vulnerable to outside intervention and exploitation.
The United States should never ratify this dangerous treaty. In some countries, UN treaties and documents are just political opinions, and aren't legally binding. But in the U.S. legal system, UN treaties supersede all state and national laws, and even the Constitution of the United States. If the CRC is ratified, it will become the supreme law of the land.
But even if the treaty is not ratified, it still has a negative impact on U.S. families. More and more, U.S. judges are using United Nations documents and decisions, commonly known as "customary international law" to guide their decisions.
