A teenage boy who lives in a Christian family doesn't like being taken to church three times a week. He finds an attorney to represent him and files a suit against his parents stating that he shouldn't have to be forced to attend church. The case goes to court and the judge decides the boy only needs to go to church once a week. The parents must comply.

Your fundamental rights to raise and nurture your children as you see fit is under threat. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) would empower children to virtually do whatever they please without interference from their parents. Its effect would be binding on American families, courts, and policy-makers.
Under the provisions of the UNCRC:
- Children would have the ability to choose their own religion while parents would only have the authority to give their children advice about religion.
- The government could override every parental decision if a government worker disagreed with the parent's decision.
- Children would have the right to reproductive health information and services, including abortions, without parental knowledge or consent.
What is needed to stop this insidious international law from taking effect in the United States? We believe the Constitution needs to be amended to include fundamental parental rights.
The first step in that process is passage of a resolution in the Michigan Legislature. Rep. Dave Agema has introduced HCR 11, which would memorialize Congress to pass the Parental Rights Amendment. The resolution is in the Committee on Family, Children and Seniors, awaiting action. We need your help to get this done as soon as possible. Here is what you can do:
- Sign the online petition at www.parentalrights.org.
- Attend the Families & Childrens' Committee Hearing Tueaday, Feb. 7th at 10:30 a.m. in the Anderson House Office Building, Room 327
