Now, after having the fun doing that, do this for REAL-
People (including me) have had serious concerns about Section 2 of the Parental Rights Amendment simply enabling the CPS system and Family courts to just continue on in the same fascist manner as they have. ParentalRights.org provides explanation and clarification for us non-lawyers-
The truth is, parent's rights were gutted by CAPTA '74, when the Convention on the Rights of the Child was supplanted into law, has been de facto in force ever since. It was enhanced by ASFA "97, a bullet to the head of parents, which entire ungodly mess was renewed on October 7, 2008 when Lame Duck George W. Bush signed into law the Orwellian-named Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act. See http://familyrights.us/UNCRC/
1. This UN Treaty controls where your child goes to school, what your child may be taught (including religion), how you discipline your child, medical decisions, and much more.
2. This UN Treaty gives the government the power to override any decision you make about your child.
Under U.S. lawnote no government may override the decisions of parents until proving they have harmed the child (abuse, neglect). Under this UN treaty the government could simply substitute its judgment for that of any parent if the government believed that its decision was "best" for the child.
3. The UN Children's Rights Treaty Would Override Virtually All U.S. Law.
Our Constitution provides that treaties become part of the "supreme law of the land," overriding all inconsistent state laws and state constitutions. Since virtually all American law on families and children is state law, this UN treaty would be supreme over the law made by your elected officials about every legal issue for your child
4. A UN Tribunal Would Hold America "Accountable" for Compliance.
A committee of 18 "experts" has two critical powers: 1. The Committee issues official interpretations of the treaty. 2. It issues official determinations concerning compliance. We have seen what American courts do in "interpreting" the Constitution. When the UN gets to "interpret" a treaty, the legal rules can change according to the whims of the Committee.
