has many good benefits, there is also a
drastic injustice being done to the American Family
Being part of
the convention is doing some wonderful work for the children of the world.
But, if one investigates deeper into the contents
of this document, we will find that it
will remove parental authority
over the children which we parents brought into this world.
If the parent wishes to raise his child according to
be arrested, imprisoned and even worse
under the guidelines of this UN Law.
Considering this, I am including these other links
concerning The UN Convention For The Rights Of The Child.
In the last several years we have been hearing much about the separation
of church and state. This article will, I believe, show you that the U.S.
Government is attempting to pass a law that will destroy our religious
principles concerning the raising of our children, and institute their
own pagan ideas.
We have been instructed to train up our children in the way they should go
(Prov. 22:6). We are also directed to correct our children when
they do wrong (Prov. 10:13; 22:6,15; 23:13-14; 29:15; 32:13). These
are what they are trying to steal away from us.
This article will show you that the United Nations and their 'One World'
ideas is at the root of the entire program to relieve you of your God
ordained parental authority over your own children. If this law is
ratified in these United States, you will have no more to say about
your children except that you will be the one to support them for eight
teen years, and nothing more.
The United Nations Convention On The Rights Of A Child
After years of debate within the international community between
politicians and child's rights activists, an agreement was finally
reached in 1988, which for the first time created a comprehensive charter
advancing the agenda of the children's "liberation" movement. What the
child's rights advocates have been unable to accomplish through the normal
legislative process, may now be realized in one sweeping blow should the
Clinton Administration push the Senate to ratify the United Nations
Convention On The Rights Of The Child. Under the guise of a child's
"rights" measure, this wolf in sheep's clothing could, if passed,
substantially undermine the authority of parents to excercise vitally
important responsibilities toward their children if these responsibilities
infringe on the child's "right" to autonomy and self-expression as defined
by a panel of "experts" appointed by the United Nations.
If ratified, this treaty could undermine the family by granting to
children a list of radical "rights" which would be primarily enforced
against the parents. These new "Fundamental" rights would include the
right to "privacy," the right to to "freedom of thought and association"
and the "freedom of expression." A fundamental presumption of the treaty
is that parental responsibility exists only in so far as the parents are
willing to further the independant choices of the child.
The Convention Would Redifine Family
Law in America
The Impact of the Convention is particularly ominous in light of
the fact that the United States Constitution declares treaties to be the
law of the land. Under the Constitution's Supremacy Clause of Article VI
"all treaties are made, or which shall be made,
under the Authority of the United States,
shall be the supreme Law of the Land;
and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby,
anything in the
Constitution of Laws of any State contrary notwithstanding."
In Misouri vs Holland the Supreme Court held that a treaty made
by the President with the required concurrance of two-thirds of the
senate is, under the Supreme Clause of Artical VI, Section 2, part of the
supreme law which takes precedent over contrary state laws. Thus, the
UN Convention would constitute legally binding law in all 50 states.
Otherwise valid state laws pertaining to education, the family, etc.
which conflict with the provisions of the treaty will be subject to
Were this convention to be enforced, the United States would be required
to alter large portion of long established law to cater to the demands of
the of the United Nations, and the panel of experts they select to define
international standards for the child's rights.
The Convention Would Give Children The "RIGHT" To
Disregard Parental Authority
Although several of the treaty's provisions offer generally positive,
non-offensive platitudes, a substancial portion of this charter undermines
parental rights. The UN Convention would:
1. Transfer parental rights and responsibilities to the state;
2. Undermine the family by vesting children with various fundamental
rights which advance notions of the child's autonomy and freedom from
parental guidance; and
3. Establish bureaucracies and institutions of a national and
international nature designed to promote "the ideas proclaimed in the
Charter of the United Nations" and to investigate and prosecute parents
who violate their children's rights.
Some of the more relevant provisions of the United Nations Convention
on the Right of the Child are sumerized below:
The State Will Determine The Child's "Best Interest"
Article 3: "In all actions concerning children," the courts,
social service workers and bureaucrats are empowered to
regulate families based on their subjective determination of,
"the best interest of the child." This article shifts the
responsibility of parental judgement and decision making from
the family to the State (and ultimately the United Nations)
The Provisions Of The Treaty Must Be Enforced
Article 4: This provision makes clear that the treaty is not
just a positive affirmation. Signatory nations are bound to
"undertake all appropriate legislative, administrative, and
other measures, for the implementation of rights" articulated
in the Convention. In fact, the United States would be
required to "undertake measures to the maximun extent of
available rescources . . . within the framework of inter
national co-operation" in order to restructure society in
accordance with the implementation of these rights.
All Children Must Be Registered
Article 7: In order to insure State and UN control over their
developement, all children must be immediately registered after
Severe Limitations Are Placed On The Parents
Right To Direct And Train Their Children
Article 13: Under this provision parents could be subject to
prosecution for any attempt to prevent their children from
interaction with material they deemed unacceptable. Children
are vested with a "freedom of expression" right which is
vertually absolute. No allowance is made for parental guidance.
Section #1 declares a childs right to "seek, receive and impart
information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers,
either orally, in writing or in print, in the the form of art,
or through any other media of the childs choice."
Article 14: Children are guaranteed "freedom of thought,
conscience and religion." Children have a legal right to object
to all religious training. Alternatively, children may assert
their right against parental objection to participate in the
occult, Muslim or Buddist worship services.
Article 15: This article declares "the right of the child to
freedom of association." If this measure were to be taken
seriously, parents could be prevented from forbidding their
children to associate with people deemed to be objectionable
companions. Under Article 15, children could claim a
"fundamental" right to join gangs, cults and racial
organizations over parental objection. Parental rights and
responsibilities are unmentionaed.
The Convention Would Further Entrench
The Right Of Teenagers To Abort Their Babies
The Convention is not only vague but contradictory when
it comes to the issue of the right to life of an unborn child.
Although some might argue that the language of Article 6 would
favor the rights of unborn children, neither abortion nor unborn
children are specifically mentioned. That provision reads:
Stated parties recognize that every child has the
inherent right to life." The fact that several of the signatory
nations not only permit, but as a matter of state policy actively
encourage abortions among its citizenry lends further credibility
to the view that this is not a pro-life measure.
Article 16: Any positive benefits resulting from the language
of Article 6 are clearly undermined by the "right to privacy"
purportedly granted to children under Article 16. Although the
United States' Constitution nowhere grants a woman the right to
abort her baby, "privacy" was the operative word used by the
Court in Roe vs Wade to create the right to abortion.
This United Nations sanctioned "privacy" would seemingly
establish as "the law of the land" the child's right to obtain
an abortion without parental notice, the right to purchase and
use contraceptives, the right to heterosexual and homosexual
promiscuity, and the right to pornography at home.
The State Must Assist Parents In
The Raising Of Their Children
Article 18: This provision not only encourages two-income
families by granting children a fundamental right to
state-subsidized, state-run child care facilities, but it calls
on the state to be co-parent by rendering "appropriate
assistance to parents and legal guardians in the performance of
their child-rearing responsibilities and shall ensure the
developement of institutions, facilities and services for the
care of the children."
Parents Who Don't Comply May Be Prosecuted
Article 19: This provision mandates the creation of an
intensive bureaucracy for the purpose of "identification,
reporting, referal, investigation, treatment and follow-up of
parents who, in violation of the child's "rights," treat their
Article 29: It is the goal of the State to direct the education
of the people it governs toward the philosophy of the New World
Order as "enshrined in the charter of the United Nations." Each
child must be prepared to be a responsible citizen by having
"the spirit of understanding, peace, toleration, equity of sexes,
and friendship [for] all peoples, ethnic, national and religious
groups of indiginous origin," including, presumably, cultic,
anti-Christian religions, and those regimes which embody
authoritarianism and intolorance.
International Experts Will Parent Our Children
Article 43: An international commitee of 10 experts is to be
established to oversee the progress of the implementation of
I see here what is to be the preparation and training of the
people for the tribulation. Once this is ratified, the United
States will no longer be a sovereign nation. It will be a part
of the single world order.
In reading this, I find that the family will be abolished and we
all become wards of the State. Article 7, I believe, will be
paving the way for World Registration by taking the Mark of the
Beast (Rev. 13:16-18; 16:2; 19:20; 20:4-6).
In Article 18, they plan to indoctrinate our children in One
World theology, from birth if possible, by providing government
run childcare facilities that will have our children from the
time of their birth because the parents will both be working.
In Article 43, we find that we will have 10 "Dr Spock" type
experts who will ensure that you are raising your children
according to the Treaty and not the Word of God. They will not
hesitate to prosecute you to the full extent of the law governed
by the Treaty.
We need to pray fervently for our nation's leaders who seem
determined to open the door that will throw this once Great
Nation into the destruction of nationwide sin and ultimately,
the Great Tribulation.
