Government Takeover Of Children?

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.
