The fight for Rights of Parents in America August 19, 2009

On August 19th, the Campaign to Secure Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child plans a major rally in Washington, DC to advance their strategy to replace pro-parent American law with contrary international law. Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but their event is being held on Bill Clinton’s birthday.

As you can see, the internationalists are planning to discuss and advance their plans for fund-raising. In the recent past I attended one of their planning meetings held in the US Senate. No expense was spared, bringing in law professors and other experts from around the world to provide this briefing to Senate staffers. This meeting was funded by a grant from a major American foundation.

The Obama Administration and the Senate and House leadership have been practicing legislation by ambush. They bring up an issue and push for quick ratification of their radical agenda. The internationalist community is counting on this strategy to eradicate traditional parental rights without giving American families the time to figure out what is going on.

This is a simple reality. If we do not build our network to defeat the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child before they launch their efforts, we will not have the time to get the organization and supporters in place.

Parentalrights.org has achieved remarkable success with a fraction of the budget possessed by the other side. We have employed a group of Patrick Henry College students over the summer to be able to organize grassroots efforts to help pass the Parental Rights Amendment.

These students have been tremendously successful. Not only have we seen the number of co-sponsors in the House move all the way to 114 representatives, but they have helped to organize face-to-face meetings between our supporters and 119+ additional members of Congress.

At the end of the day the most important effort is at the grassroots level. More parents, grandparents, and individuals are needed to win the fight for the rights of parents and families. To learn more, visit the Parental Rights.org website.
