Government Takeover Of Children?

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Only a few years ago I, and I'm sure you as well, would have said "not a chance". However, the US Senate is expected to take up the UN Convention on Rights of the Child.

Rosemary Stein, spokesperson for the Christian Medical Association (CMA) says it is a dangerous treaty for the family and, "It takes away the parent's rights to rear their child and gives it to the government. The government becomes the caretaker and the guardian and the parent becomes the baby sitter."

After studying the UN Convention on Rights of the Child, Stein says, "I didn't know it was this insidious and at the same time, this overwhelming. It goes over everything---what you teach them, what you do with them[and] how they're reared."

She points out a case in Germany where the government has passed laws that ban parents from homeschooling as an example of where these policies lead.

She also notes a case in Great Britain where a 16-year-old asked her parents to let her boyfriend move in and share her bedroom. When the parents said no, she sued and won.

Nothing is sacred to secular socialists. Not marriage, not the family, not even parental rights.

In our current state, who knows what the majority in the US Senate would do with this matter?

This is yet another reason why the upcoming elections are a matter of life and death for our culture and our country.

We will keep you posted.

  1. The only two countries who haven't ratified this are the US and Somalia. Solidarity, baby.

  2. Ms Stein falsely links German laws against homeschooling with the Convention, when these laws predate the Convention by several decades. Does truth matter at all the so-called Christian right? or is making outrageous and false claims to further political goals and increase fundraising considered acceptable?

  3. Does Gary or Ms Stein have any supporting evidence for the claim about the 16 year old allegedly suing her parents based on this treaty? I did some searching and can come up with no stories from the UK about this case. When did this occur? What city did it occur in? Names? CMA's website contains no mention of this case nor of the Convention.

    It seems odd that this case caused no stir whatsoever in the country where it occurred, yet Ms Stein knows about it. It seems doubly odd that my searching did turn up an outraged story in the Daily Mail from 2008 about a couple of parents who willingly allowed their 16 year old daughter's 36 year old boyfriend to move in, yet this story had no mention of a related successful lawsuit.

  4. Another example of our government taking away what rightly belongs to someone else. When will it be enough?

    It seems to me that the government should be watching over our rights and our interests instead of what they so often do while trying to control everything.

    Sometimes we do need the government to intercede, like asking a petroleum company to make a respectable offer to the public for every barrel of crude that has somehow found a way through it's pipes in order that it be brought into it's nearest reclaimation center, or whatever, by whatever means private enterprise, business, individual, or group can devise.

    I think this would make more sense than a cash for cars with worn upper ball joints or loose wheel bearings.

  5. In google videos search out "A DAY IN THE LIFE NORTH KOREA" .

    It is an interesting video.
    They follow a North Korean family around for a day.
