The UN’s Original Lesson Plan for Families
by William L. Saunders
Forces within and without the United Nations are trying to undermine the family using international “human rights law.” Sometimes they use ambiguous wording in UN documents (such as “various forms of the family”) to argue that international human rights law recognizes (that is, legitimates) novel family forms. Sometimes they rely upon “principles” of international law to undermine the role of the parents as the primary educator of the child.
