Washington Times: Treaty Abolishes Rights of Parents

The Washington Times posted an editorial on the UNCRC (UN Convention on the Rights of the Child) titled Rosemond: Treaty Abolishes Rights of Parents. In the article Rosemond explains how we should not just be worried about the nationalization of banks, but how ratifying this treaty would nationalize child rearing turning parenting into "governmenting." I think he nails the risks of this treaty pretty accurately when he said, "The language, often recklessly vague, clearly establishes the state as the final authority where raising children is concerned. As such, the document could more accurately be called the United Nations Convention on the Abolition of Parents' Rights."

He like many others urges you to go to to find out more about the UNCRC, and to sign the petition calling for the Parental Rights Amendment. I encourage you to read the entire article which can be found at the link below.

  1. It looks like George Orwell was 25 years early. This is so dreadful that I don't know what to say.
