Rhode Island--Committees Hold UN Resolutions for "Further Study"

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Thank you for your calls! Wednesday evening the two committees
considering legislation (HR 5517 and SR 494) that would have urged the
U.S. Senate to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child
(CRC) voted to hold them for further study.

ACTION REQUESTED

1. If you have NOT made calls to oppose these pieces of legislation,
please do so (see yesterday's e-lerts for details). While the
resolutions have been "held for further study" they can easily be
brought back to their respective legislative committees for action on
short notice. It is vitally important that committee members know that
you oppose them.

2. Please email your friends and ask them to read "Twenty Things You
Need to Know About the CRC." http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10653
Sometimes we only have a short time frame for taking action. People
who are well-informed can quickly understand the need for action.
Reading the article at the link above will help make a person well
informed.

BACKGROUND

Both of these pieces of legislation are "resolutions"--even if passed,
they would not have the force of law. But the long struggle against
the CRC will consist of many individual skirmishes and battles.

If any state passes a resolution urging the U.S. Senate to ratify the
CRC, it gives the pro-CRC forces ammunition. They can take the state
resolution to their U.S. senators and say, "Senator, you should vote
to ratify the CRC because the legislature of your state is urging you
to." Of course the senator could still make up his own mind, but
there is no doubt that a state resolution could influence him.

There is no skirmish, no battle, no field of discussion, where those
who want the government to control parent-child relationships should
be not be challenged.

The Rhode Island Guild of Home Teachers and HSLDA are united in
opposing these pieces of legislation.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom!

Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel
