Apparently, the biggest issue regarding ratification is that parents will no longer be able to spank their children. Yes, we should not ratify a treaty because people are afraid that if they spank their children UN forces will knock down their front door and wisk them away to… Geneva? New York?

Ratifying the Convention means that the US is committed to protecting and supporting children. It means we are committed to keep children safe and help them grow up happy and healthy. All children deserve this, including American children. Here is a video by my friend Emma about the convention:

If only 2 more senators decide to oppose ratification, it will not pass if brought to the senate floor. Call or email your senators and let them know that you believe in protecting and supporting America’s children.
