Sovereignty or International Consensus


It is believed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will soon recommend that the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child Treaty be incorporated into U.S. law.

Critics charge that signing onto the Convention on the Rights of the Child could mean international law trumping U.S. state and federal laws and the rights of parents to make decisions about raising and educating their children. This would seriously undermine the sovereignty of the U.S. setting further precedent to adopt an International Law and Justice System.

Jim Bently, executive director of ParentalRights.org, describes the treaty as an assault on parental rights. It is for this reason that his organization is launching a campaign aimed at amending the U.S. Constitution in order to protect parental rights.

What do you think?

  • Should the U.S. remain sovereign and independent
  • Should the U.S. take steps to adopt an International Law and Justice System
