Sample Letter To The Editor 
The U.S. Senate is preparing to vote on the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) Treaty.

Our Senators should not ratify CEDAW. One of the most offensive sections of CEDAW is Article 17, which creates a committee of 23 'experts' to monitor compliance. What would CEDAW's experts target to change in the U.S.? No restrictions on abortion; decriminalize prostitution; abolish Mother's Day; enact quotas and affirmative action; government-paid global village daycare; and well, of course, change the U.S. Constitution. We know this because these so-called experts have already made such suggestions to the countries that were rash enough to ratify CEDAW.

  • In 1999, the CEDAW "experts" cited that in China "prostitution was illegal . . . it was essential to decriminalize that practice for women."

  • In 1999, a CEDAW "expert" stated she was disturbed that in Ireland "childcare was primarily the responsibility of parents."

  • In a 2000 report, the experts criticized Belarus for celebrating Mother's Day, and said that they were concerned that this perpetuated a "sex-role stereotype."

  • In January 2002, Uruguay was blasted by the experts for its laws against abortion, which were described as an "affront to the dignity of women" and a "violation of women's most basic rights."
  • CEDAW would be a massive interference with U.S. laws and with our federal-state balance of powers. It would clearly diminish the rights and benefits American women now enjoy, as well as give extraordinary powers over U.S. laws to unelected busybody global bureaucrats.

    CEDAW is not about equality for women. Even though the U.S. rejected the Equal Rights Amendment twenty years ago, the feminists are engaging in international mischief while still trying to force us to cave in to their demands.

    Please contact U.S. Senators (enter name) and (enter name) and ask them to vote AGAINST this intrusive, Anti-Mother's treaty!

    Sincerely,
