Yesterday afternoon in the U.S. Senate, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) introduced SR 99, a resolution opposing ratification of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Joining him are 28 original cosponsors, and two more senators signed up with his office last night.
 
This means SR 99 already has 31 of the 34 senators needed to prevent ratification of this dangerous treaty for the rest of this Congress.
 
Please take a moment to see if your senators are already on board. If not, their D.C. phone number is provided. Please call and ask them to contact Senator DeMint and cosponsor SR 99. Please don’t be harsh—assume they just haven’t heard yet and you are calling their attention to this new resolution.
 
Last year, we fell just short of having the votes needed to stop the CRC. We need to redouble our efforts now.
 
In just a few days we expect the Parental Rights Amendment will be reintroduced in both houses of Congress. The conditions are right for real gains in both chambers. We especially expect action in the House committees very soon.
 
For more info on this and what it is, see below. This is urgent. This will take parental control away from us as well as eventually wipe out our rights to homeschool our children. The government will control every aspect of your children and your parenting rights!
 
Please forward this to every parent that you know!
 
 

Why Cosponsor S.R. 519?
Cosponsoring Senate Resolution 519 is the only effective means to register opposition to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

 

1. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) must not be ratified. The CRC undermines traditional parental rights and obligates us to implement its provisions,
effectively transferring jurisdiction governing family law matters from the states to federal government.
It will also lead to courts deciding domestic law by U.N guidelines rather than by the intent of elected
American lawmakers. The CRC runs counter to our American heritage and freedoms.
S.R. 519 sends a message that the Senate lacks the requisite votes to ratify the CRC. The Convention
requires the consent of 67 Senators; to reject it takes only 34. Once 34 sign SR 519, the Senate cannot
grant its consent to the CRC — as long as 34 senators remain true to their commitment to protect
American families and U.S. sovereignty.
 
2. The current leadership in Washington has demonstrated a willingness to go to great lengths
to get what it wants, the will of the American people notwithstanding.
From buy-outs to socialized health care, the current administration and legislative leadership have
shown that they will go to extraordinary measures to get what they want when they want it. And
President Obama, Ambassador Susan Rice, Senator Barbara Boxer, and Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton have all made it clear that they want to see us ratify the CRC.
We must be sure the President knows the Senate will not provide consent. And that begins with 34
cosponsors to S.R. 519.

3. Proponents of the treaty are on the move, and claim to be near victory.
The Campaign for U.S. Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child claim they have
identified 60 senators in support of ratification, and 13 who are undecided. By their numbers,
ratification is a real possibility now. They also indicate that they have had a recent White House
meeting to discuss ratification. These factors further demonstrate the likelihood that an attempt at
ratification will be made in the very near future.

4. The American people deserve a clear message from their leaders.
Any Senator who opposes ratification of the CRC yet refuses to cosponsor S.R. 519 raises the question
of whether that senator may be among the 13 undecided lawmakers whom proponents of the treaty
will be looking to court. Signing S.R. 519 allows a Senator to declare overt opposition to the treaty. At
the same time, the Senator is able to take a stand that protects the rights of parents and the selfdetermination
of the American people, a position supported by the overwhelming majority of Americans.

5. It’s clean and easy.
The wording will not be changed in committee. Supporting senators won’t have to defend the measure
in floor debate. None of these usual actions will be necessary. Thirty-four names. That’s all. A Senator
need take no more action than to contact the office of Senator Jim DeMint from South Carolina and
ask to be added as a cosponsor. It is that easy.
