SCHEA Action Update

SCHEA Action Update:
Are your parental rights really in danger now? just released a new article "Child Rights or Blow to Parents?" on its home page. The article titled "Boxer Seeks to Ratify UN Treaty That May Erode US Rights" covers the issue of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and its inherent danger to parents' rights to make every-day decisions in raising their children and the danger to national sovereignty when we hand over to foreign committees the power to tell Americans how to raise their children.
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is being pushed for ratification soon. The solution to this threat is a parental rights constitutional amendment, making parental rights a fundamental right on par with freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and freedom to assemble. Fundamental rights can not be overridden by the UN Convention.
If you are concerned about this issue, go to, sign the petition, and become a 10-and-2 rep. This is the most important action you can take now - numbers count and our representatives are watching the number who are signing petitions. You can also help get word out about this issue by emailing Glenn Beck, and, to encourage him to feature Mike Farris and this issue on an upcoming show. This will help get word to hundreds of thousands of people who might not even know that their parental rights are in danger. If you want more information, contact
