Rhode Island--Second Urgent Request to Stop UN Child's Rights

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

We have just learned that a SEPARATE resolution supporting the U.N.
Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is pending in the Rhode
Island senate, and a hearing is also scheduled for Wednesday in the
Senate Special Legislation Committee. We need your help to stop this
resolution as well!


1. Before you close this email, please call the members of the Senate
Judiciary Committee and urge them to oppose SR 494. Your message can
be as simple as, "Please vote no on SR 494. The Rhode Island
legislature, not the United Nations or an international treaty, should
govern in the crucial area of how parents relate to their children."

2. Contact your friends and pass this on.

3. This is in addition to the calls we have requested to stop the
resolution in the House.

Senator Walter S. Felag Jr. Chairperson

Senator Paul V. Jabour

Senator Erin P. Lynch Vice Chairperson

Senator Christopher Scott Ottiano

Senator Juan M. Pichardo

Senator John J. Tassoni, Jr.

If adopted by the United States Senate, the CRC would place every
aspect of parent-child relations under the control of the government.
There would literally be no area of the parent-child relationship that
would be entitled to privacy any more. Parent-child relationships in
every family would be subject to the same type of scrutiny as
divorcing couples experience--but with mandates so intrusive and
burdensome that they verge on the totalitarian.

A few moments ago we sent an e-lert urging families to call to oppose
the House resolution. Since there is both a House resolution and a
Senate resolution pending, it's very important that families call to
oppose both.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!
