Just call W at 202-456-1111 and say into the recording “Mr. President, Un-sign CEDAW.” (CEDAW is pronounced See-Daw.)

Subj: Urgent Action Alert….Today
Date: Fri, 31 May 2002 15:14:35 -0500
From: “Austin Ruse — C-FAM”
As you read this, some U.S. Senators (Boxer and Biden), along with some in
the State Department are attempting to get the U.S. to ratify one of the
most dangerous and radical UN treaties ever written. We need your
immediate help to stop them.
The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against
Women (CEDAW) seeks to level every single distinction between men and
women at all levels of society including in the home. It is the Equal
Rights Amendment times a thousand.
CEDAW (pronounced See-Daw) seeks to drive women from the home and to drive
children into day care. CEDAW seeks to promote protitutes and condemn
mothers. CEDAW seeks the reinterpretation of religious doctrine. Sound too
strange and outrageous to be true? Here are the facts.
The CEDAW Committee at the UN did the following.
Directed China to legalize prostitution
Criticized Belarus for establishing Mother’s Day
Directed Kyrgyzstan to legalize lesbianism
Directed Ireland to legalize abortion
Criticized Ireland for the Church’s influence in public policy
Directed Libya to reinterpret the Koran to fall within CEDAW guidelines
Some in the US government are trying to get the US to ratify this
document! Amazing and stupid.
But, you can stop them. Right now the Bush Administration is determining
its position on this. You can affect their decision. Here’s how.

“Mr. Secretary, Un-sign CEDAW.” That’s all you have to write to make a
Dear Friends, do this now! Do it now. And ask your friends to do it, too.
You are part of a national campaign in which all the major pro-family
groups are participating. We want to flood them with thousands of phone
calls into the White House and e-mails into the State Department saying
Do it right now……………..”Un-sign CEDAW!”
