HSLDA: Senate Close to Halting Childs Rights Convention

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Yesterday afternoon in the U.S. Senate, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC)
introduced SR 99, a resolution opposing ratification of the United
Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Joining him are
28 original cosponsors, and two more senators signed up with his
office last night.

This means SR 99 already has 31 of the 34 senators needed to prevent
ratification of this dangerous treaty for the rest of this Congress.

Please take a moment now to visit
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10573 and see if your senators are
already on board. If not, their D.C. phone number is provided. Please
call and ask them to contact Senator DeMint and cosponsor SR 99.
Please don't be harsh--assume they just haven't heard yet and you are
calling their attention to this new resolution.

(If your senators are already on board, consider sending them a card
thanking them for their stand. Find their web addresses by clicking on
your state here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10574)

Last year, we fell just short of having the votes needed to stop the
CRC. We need to redouble our efforts now.

In just a few days we expect the Parental Rights Amendment will be
reintroduced in both houses of Congress. The conditions are right for
real gains in both chambers. We especially expect action in the House
committees very soon.

Your financial support for ParentalRights.org right now is crucial for
our ability to stop the UN power grab over our families. Your gift of
$10, $25, $50, or $100 is truly needed if we are to have the staff and
resources for victory. You can give online at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10575 .

Gratefully,

Michael Farris

Chairman, HSLDA
President, ParentalRights.org
