Your parental rights are threatened by the UN!

Please take the time to check out this website. It is really important that as many people as possible join this campaign by signing their petition. brings together everyone who agrees that the vital role of parents in the lives of children should not be undermined by government action or policy. I'm standing with them and I know this will be of vital importance to you and your family as well.

When you go to their site click on the "Learn" tab at the top of the page to find out more information about how an amendment is needed to our constitution to protect us from the extreme threat of a United Nations treaty for children's rights that is being sent to countries around the globe to sign. Once signed, rights of the children will supersede those of the parent AND an U.N. sanctioned international court's ruling trumps our laws unless the constitution specifically states that an international court cannot decide our cases. If our next president should sign this treaty (Britain already has and is suffering the whiplash) without a Constitutional amendment in place, your right to homeschool and your children's right to someday homeschool their children could end in this country not to mention the devastating results of stripping parents of their parental rights. I never realized the ramifications of this treaty nor the power of international law. Homeschool families in Germany are having their children taken away from them and having to leave the country because the state deems the parents too dangerous to educate a child and the state is viewed and legally supported as more safe to raise a child. This is very real. Please take the time to check out their website and spread the word. I really can't emphasize this enough.
