U.S. should ratify convention on children's rightsThe Convention on the Rights of the Child is an internationally recognized agreement among nations which establishes a comprehensive set of goals for individual nations to improve the lives of their children. Opposition to this convention by some religious groups – some of which claim it conflicts with the U.S. Constitution – have played an important role in the nonratification of the treaty so far.Several among these groups have portrayed the convention as a threat to national sovereignty, states' rights, the child-parent relationship and parental rights. Because of widespread conservative opposition to the convention it is likely that the U.S. will continue to be at odds with the rest of the world regarding children's basic rights.
