Why would prominent Christian groups oppose a UN treaty to end discrimination? Chairman Michael Farris talks about the reasons on today's Home School Heartbeat.
When HSLDA sounded the alarm against ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, or CEDAW, we were joined by a who's who of Christian groups. We all agreed that maintaining U.S. sovereignty over our domestic affairs is critical to the health of our nation's families and our representative system.
Together with our friends at Focus on the Family, Concerned Women for America, The Family Research Council, Eagle Forum, and many others, we let our representatives know that we do not pledge allegiance to the UN
Statistically, those who would eliminate the traditional family as an outmoded stereotype don't have a leg to stand on. Dr. Robert Coombs at UCLA reviewed more than 130 empirical studies published in this century, showing "an intimate link between marital status and personal well-being."
Psychological research shows that children need an intimate, warm, and continuing relationship with their mothers, according to Brenda Hunter's popular book The Power of Mother Love.
This research runs contrary to the UN view supported by Hillary Clinton, who wrote wistfully in her 1996 book It Takes a Village, about a country where virtually all children spend all day in government day care centers � even those children whose mothers stay at home.
We can't let the UN tell us how to live our lives. As a nation, we have a long history of building up our families. Let's keep it that way. I'm Mike Farris.
