Part 18: To Be Fair to the CRC
The Convention on the Rights of the Child is not all bad. We can concede that it has some beneficial sections and effects. The treaty includes protections against sending children into war, against child prostitution/trafficking, as well as against child abuse. However in America, we already have laws that provide any miniscule benefit found in the treaty. Why should we swallow the poison of the bad parts just to ingest the thin chocolate coating mentioned here? To add some perspective to the silliness of other countries attacking America for not signing the full treaty, consider this: The optional sections of the treaty against sending children to war have been signed by the United States, but not by many of the same countries chastising us. They want us to ratify the treaty yet they cannot even agree to this fundamental protection of children. Furthermore, many of the same signatory countries violate the treaty while chastising us out of the other side of their mouths.
