Now that the party of death has retaken control of Congress, battles over funding of embryonic stem cell research, chemical abortifacients, contraception, sex education, special privileges for homosexuals, and other such controversies will ensue over the next two years. The fight over an obscure international treaty could be just as important, if not more so, than these others even though few people have ever heard of CEDAW.
The pompously named CEDAW, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, sounds on its face not to be too bad, just clumsy and utopian. Yet it is a totalitarian piece of social engineering that aims to do everything from legalize abortion-on-demand worldwide to abolish Mother's Day (no joke).

But I thought this was the party of Moms. Oh wait, it's the party of Nannys.
Men are becoming more pussified and women butch. I liked it better when men were men and women were women. Not the other way around. I'm sick of this constant pile-on of traditional lifestyles. I love the card and flowers from my garden I used to get. One time my son actually didn't even bother to cut off the roots, but I didn't care, it was the thought that counted anyway. What's next, no Father's Day because all children will be test tube babies? This is so ridiculous.
What's next banning Father's Day, Valentine's Day, Independance Day, Memoprial Day, Flag Day, Constitution Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day, Chistmas Day,...?????
I think they're trying to accomplish this under the radar. Pretty sneaky.
Yes, the Democrats have become the, Granny knows best party.
Sad how the libs are so focused on destroying the traditional family.
Is this for real???
"I think they're trying to accomplish this under the radar"
Thats because if they leave it up the the people abortion will soon be much more strictly controlled.
"Is this for real?"

I can be both tough and demure, most women can. It's knowing when to employ what works best that's the secret to a happy marriage and good kids.
The libs and dims can jump off a bridge for all I care.

And the Dems aren't much better!
This can't pass without bipartisan support...and unfortunately, I don't see either party as disliking Nanny Statism.
Exactly! Well said...~~P~~
I think quite enough in our government has been RATified, thank you very much.
This is a United Nations treaty signed by Jimmy Carter. It has not been ratified by Congress as of this date. It does far more damage than to remove "Mothers Day".
This thing can't pass if people know about it, can it?
I would assume that if the American people found out this proposed treaty would outlaw Mother's Day, there would be quite an outcry of protest.
I can't imagine any Senator voting for this. It would be political suicide.
PLEEZE let this be true. Can you imagine a worse PR nightmare for the Democrat party than to be the party that wants to ban Mother's Day?
The left will probably just start a campaign saying Mother's Day is non-inclusive and discriminates against gays. Then it would be the cause du jour.
I hope they want to ban Father's day as well. Any holiday where women are given flowers and food in appreciation for all they've done for their families, you'd think the feminists would support since it would theoretically force those horrible men (because all men must be horrible) to acknowledge the work a woman does.
But no, no, let's work on making it so men can be impregnated so that women can go to work and men can make the babies. That's much better.
Unless they're saying the human race should end here and now, that's about the only solution I can see where they keep women from being mothers.
It is indeed for real!
