Parents Rights At Risk

According to Fox News, which you can read here, Sen. Barbara Boxer, (D) of California, "...is urging the U.S. to ratify a United Nations measure meant to expand the rights of children, a move critics are calling a gross assault on parental rights that could rob the U.S. of sovereignty.

Critics say the treaty, which creates "the right of the child to freedom of thought, conscience and religion" and outlaws the "arbitrary or unlawful interference with his or her privacy," intrudes on the family and strips parents of the power to raise their children without government interference."

So if I am reading this right, parents would no longer be able to make decisions on behalf of their children, especially in areas of education and faith. They wouldn't even be able to enter their own room without their child's permission. Something is very, very wrong here. So what do you think? Comment below.
