21 Jan No Room for Families at Obama Table
Expectations from the left are at an all-time high. The new Obama administration, although promising to be bi-partisan, has sullied great favor with those who would stomp on the rights of the family for the right to abortion, sexual orientation and the like. Virtually all of his transition team members come from the abortion-rights side of the ledger where their policies have already begun to come to fruition. What is considered by our opposition as the most “progressive administration in recent memory” is nothing more than a nightmare come to reality by those fighting for the family, parental rights, religious liberty and life.
There is a strong possibility that within a few short months the United States of America will join hands with the European Union and Canada where liberal policy at home and at the United Nations is the norm.
Let’s take a look at what legislation and policies will most likely be introduced and passed this year:
RATIFICATION OF UN TREATIES: Both treaties have been in place for over 20 years and have the signature of a US President. They must be ratified by the US Congress to take effect. If these treaties are ratified, which appears likely with the new Congress and under the Obama administration, all state and federal law will be superseded by UN international law and overseen by UN appointed Boards.
1.CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women)
(United Families has researched CEDAW in the past. Click here to read more.)
2. CRC (Convention on the Rights of the Child)
PASSAGE OF RADICAL ABORTION RIGHTS LAW: FOCA – Freedom of Choice Act
REPEAL OF PROTECTION OF MARRIAGE: DOMA – Defense of Marriage Act
PASSAGE OF SPECIAL RIGHTS FOR LESBIAN, BISEXUAL, GAY, AND TRANSGENDERED (LBGT): ENDA – Employer Discrimination Act
REVERSAL OF THE BUSH EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT WILL FUND EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH.
APPOINTMENT OF LIBERAL JUDGES TO THE SUPREME COURT AND ALL FEDERAL COURTS.
With the domination of liberals in both Houses of Congress, pro-family legislators will find it very difficult to stymie the efforts of this radical agenda.
Almost as importantly, Obama’s leadership picks are under heavy scrutiny by pro-family coalitions, including his new United Nations Ambassador. Dr. Susan E. Rice, former assistant secretary of state and ex-National Security Council member for Bill Clinton, is known as one of Obama’s most liberal appointees. As Ambassador to the UN, Rice will carry the clout needed to push through the radical agenda put on hold by eight years of Bush’s pro-family/pro-life staunch appointees.
In March of this year, the 53rd Comission on the Status of Women will be held in New York. Rice is expected to personally head up the U.S. delegation and open the flood gates of feminism. Some may not take what occurs at the UN too seriously, believing that the UN is short on policy and long on rhetoric. But, the fact is Rice together with the new Secretary of State and darling of women’s rights around the world, Hillary Clinton, know just how to use the UN system to help in promotion of their feminist agenda.
No doubt the US will join ranks with members of the EU to push through LGBT rights, including same-sex marriage, on the EU and the rest of the world through the UN process, treaties and documents. An article from the gay community outlines their agenda.
As you can see, the battle for the family is heating up. After 8 long years of relative calm…the gloves are off and the fight is even costlier. United Families International is currently preparing to send a team of policy experts to the UN Conference of the Status of Women (CSW).
