The following post is unrelated to family preservation or adoption, so it may be "off topic" to some of my followers. However, as a human rights advocate focusing on the rights of children and families, this is clearly an issue of children's' right:
Graham v. Florida and Sullivan v. Florida, two appeal cases to reach the state Supreme Court in Florida,
question the authority of a state to sentence juvenile violent offenders to life without parole.
Amnesty International and other global organizations have filed briefs urging the Court to apply the U.N.’s CRC to Florida law as a matter of binding “Customary International Law.”
16 Florida congressmen filed an opposing brief which argues that this use of international law is contrary to both the facts and the law.
Michael Farris, constitutional lwyer and founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and his followers at parentalrights.org are up in arms over this. Michael Farris will appear on Gov. Mike Huckabee’s Fox News show on Saturday, November 7, at 8 p.m. ET.
Like the pro-adoption fanatics, these extremists think they are above all international protections of basic human rights for children. It is these extremists that keep the U.S. from ratifying the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: the baby brokers and their lobby fear loss of revenue and these freaks fear loss of the ability to brainwash and corporally punish their kids.
