Parental Rights: What If You Didn’t Have Any?

Have you ever wonder what would happen if our kids were left in charge? I mean in charge of things like deciding where they go to school, who will be their friends, whether or not they go to church, or what kind of healthcare services they receive.

What if a law was adopted that put our kids in charge of their own decision-making?  That’s what will happen if United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child is ratified.  President Obama signed it in 2009.  The U.S. Senate could vote on this at any time.  If approved, it would become the supreme law of the land.

As we see moral foundations and traditional values tossed to the wind, should we be surprised that the issue of parental leadership is also being challenged? I encourage you to take the time to learn more about the critical issue at Parental rights.org.  Start by watching their video Overruled.  Or watch the three minute trailer here. In it, Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America says:

“This treaty that purports to give rights to children really makes them more vulnerable to being exploited and abused.”

Our kids would actually be more vulnerable than they already are!

We need to be aware that our rights are already challenged in America now! And unless we as believers rise up and take a firm stand we could lose the opportunity to protect our children and guide their futures. Our government and our own children could legally be in charge of our homes.

So what can we do?  After you have educated yourself, will you take a stand for parental rights across this land?  Will you join me in signing ParentalRights.org’s  petition, Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Further, we can contact our senators and tell them how we feel about United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child And we can tell every other parent and concerned citizen about this too. 

 I’m in.  How about you?
