US parents' rights in danger!

I know my readers here are a mixture of those who are parents and those who long for parenthood. But this message is an important one for any US citizen who wants your parenting rights to be kept in place!

Parental has posted a critical message about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the current US governement push to join this movement. The concerning issue is that the UN treaty would eclipse current US law and take away many parental rights and freedoms.

Please join me in taking immediate action by calling the White House comments line at 202-456-1111. Tell them you heard the administration wants to ratify the CRC, and you strongly oppose this giving away of U.S. sovereignty to the UN. Also keep in mind that this treaty gives the government jurisdiction to override any decision made by any parent if the government thinks that a better decision can be made—even if there is no proof of any harm.

Also contact Ambassador Susan Rice’s office at the United Nations. Tell her that you want her to represent the United States to the world rather than trying to get the United States to go along with international law initiated by the UN. Her office number is 212-415-4404. The US Mission at the United Nations can be reached at 212-415-4000 (press 6 to leave your message). You can also contact the Public Diplomacy Office at 212-415-4050. Acording to "This is not a message they want to hear, so do not expect a cordial reception. The important thing is to get the message through."
