"Thank you for contacting me on the issue of the UN Convention on the Rights of Children. My position on that convention is unequivocal: I would oppose Senate approval of the convention and would not sign the convention for final ratification."
-- Mitt Romney, in a letter sent to Virginia evangelical leader Michael Farris, decrying a UN treaty that would protect children from discrimination. The only other country in the world that hasn't signed the treaty is Somalia - and they've announced that they would. Romney opposes the treaty because he thinks it might stop parents from spanking their child and protect children from being given life sentences for any crimes.
