1. The CRC is a treaty that creates binding rules of law. It is no mere statement of altruism.
2. This treaty would automatically override almost all family law in America due to Article VI of the United States Constitution.
3. Congress would have the power to directly legislate on all subjects necessary to comply with the treaty. This would constitute the most massive shift of power from the states to the federal government in American history.
4. American courts would have the power to directly enforce the self-executing provisions of the treaty.
5. A committee of 18 experts from other nations, sitting in Geneva, has the authority to issue official interpretations of the treaty which would be entitled to binding weight in American courts and legislatures. This would effectively transfer ultimate authority for all policies in this area to this foreign committee.
1. Parents would no longer be able to administer reasonable spankings to their children.
2. Children would have the ability to choose their own religion while parents would only have the authority to give their children advice about religion.
3. The best interest of the child principle would give the government the ability to override every decision made by every parent if a government worker disagreed with the parent’s decision.
4. Children would have the right to reproductive health information and services, including abortions, without parental knowledge or consent.
5. Religious schools that refuse to teach “alternative worldviews” and teach that theirs is the only true religion “fly in the face of article 29” of the treaty, says the American Bar Association.
THE SOLUTION: THE PARENTAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT
The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is a fundamental right.
Neither the United States nor any State shall infringe upon this right without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served.
No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article.
