This is the result of raising your voice, emailing and writing your Representatives our US House of Representatives.
Sometimes we feel like our one tiny voice does not get heard but when we put our voices together, things will get done. Whether or not you have children, this issue concerns you as those that oppose parental rights seek to submit to a United Nations order and rule of law.
Parentalrights.org asked us to help get 50 Congressmen to become the original co-sponsors of the Parental Rights Amendment which has been headed up by Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Michigan. On March 11th we only had 31 members of the US house of Representatives on board for this amendment that is a vital instrument to protect the rights of Parents in the United States against the global treaty that the U.S. is being pressured to sign into law.
So people all over the United States began to write their representatives, email and call them to get them to become sponsors. We needed 19 more to sign on.
We did it! Today there are 56 Representatives who are now the sponsors of the Parental Rights Amendment.
If your representative is on this list- parentalrights.org is asking you to please send them an email or a letter to thank them and let them know you appreciate them doing so. You can go to the list here to see if your state reps are on the list. Mine are not. Not one rep from Florida is on the list.
If your congressman is not on board and is not on the list please contact them. Please email them or write to them. Put them on the spot. Parentalrights.org suggests the following language to make them ask themselves why they are not on the list.
"Rep. Hoekstra's Parental Rights Amendment bill will be introduced on the 31st and he already has 56 co-sponsors. Why aren't you (Mr or Ms Representative) one of them?"
Go to Congress.org and put in your zip code to find your Representatives' office and contact information.
We have over 100,000 signatures on the petition. If you have not signed the petition yet, you can do so here.
But we are just beginning. We are going to need millions of citizen supporters to bring this to fruition, we also need 290 "YEA" votes in the House.
Parental.org needs volunteers and if you are not a member it is only $25 a year to be member! You will get two window decals that say, "Protecting Children By Empowering Parents". Please get involved.
You may reprint this article, send it, email it, fax it; spread the word. Thanks!
For further reading and resources I suggest that you read the information on the parentalrights.org website. See what has been happening in the court system and the pressures from the global treaty proponents to take over parental rights. Below is just a snippet of what you will find:
THE THREAT FROM INTERNATIONAL LAW
"The precarious state of parental rights within our nation is reason enough for serious concern. With cases like these filling the courts, every parent should be concerned about the protection and preservation of their rights.
But another storm is rapidly forming on the horizon.
International law that seeks to empower the government to intrude upon the child-parent relationship is becoming an increasing threat. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), a seemingly harmless treaty with dangerous implications for American families, is approaching possible ratification by the United States.
If this treaty is made binding upon our country, the government would have the power to intervene in any child's life to advance its definition of "the best interests of the child." The scenarios that could occur—and are occurring—as a result of this dangerous notion are both manifold and frightening.
Under the UNCRC, instead of following due process, government agencies would have the power to override your parental choices at their whim because they determine what is in "the best interest of the child."
In essence, the UNCRC applies the legal status of abusive parents to all parents. This means that the burden of proof falls on the parent to prove to the State that they are good parents—when it should fall upon the State to prove that their investigation is not without cause."
There is a lot more than meets the eye, when you embark upon your own due diligence.
