Convention on the Rights of the Child and the US.

Someone recently contacted me through the message form here to say that I might be interested to know that the USA is the ONLY country, that is a member of the UN, that has not ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. I am indeed interested, thanks!

This is in reaction to the UJS being in contravention of human rights with regard to the recent border/family controversy, and with their pulling out of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Whenever you look closely at the US, it isn’t actually the country you think it would be.
