Misguided “Parental Rights” Amendment Endangers Children

Michigan House Concurrent Resolution 11 would urge the United States Congress to begin the ratification process of a Constitutional amendment enshrining ‘parental rights’ as supreme while overriding all considerations of international laws and practices. This push is part of a nationwide effort to prevent the United States from ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The ACLU of Michigan is concerned that the so-called ‘Parental Rights Amendment,’ sponsored by Representative Agema, is a thinly veiled attempt to undermine international human rights treaties that protect children from abuse and exploitation. Link to Post
