New York Politicians Silent on Children's Rights
By Randall L. Dickinson

In Albany on Monday for the Conservative Party's annual conference, William
Weld, who hopes to become New York's next Governor, attempted to define his
position vis--vis a woman's right to choose and the right of gays to marry.
Clearly walking a fine line between offending Conservatives on the one hand
and gays on the other, he stated that, "I'm for full equality and civil
rights for same-sex couples, which I think amounts to civil unions".

On the issue of abortion Mr. Weld stated that, while he respects the views
of those who oppose the procedure, he doesn't share their views. He supports
a woman's right to choose.

At the same time, Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro, who
wants Eliot Spitzer's job as New York State Attorney General in November, is
all in a dither over the issue of animal rights. She is calling for an
amendment to the State's animal cruelty law that would hold anyone
criminally responsible for acts of cruelty to animals regardless of whether
there was intent involved or not. If she is as zealous in championing the
rights of animals as she has been in protecting women and children from
their "male abusers" and "deadbeat dads", life may begin to get rather
uncomfortable for those who, unwittingly or otherwise, find themselves
caught in the would be Attorney General's dragnet. She's "tough on crime",
you see.

Today men in ever increasing numbers and often falsely accused find
themselves exposed to the unprotected risks of a system that has and
routinely exercises the authority to eject them from their families, evict
them from their own homes, abduct their children, extort their financial
resources, and confiscate their assets as a matter of public policy, and
always "in the best interest of the child". If they complain to loudly, they
can be thrown in jail, without ever having committed a single crime and
without the due process of a trial.

Indeed, the most dangerous decision a young man can make - the decision
that, above all others, will expose him to the greatest risk (better than a
50 perc! ent probability) that he could wind up losing everything,
including, in certain instances, even his life - is the decision to marry
and begin a family. As citizens of Eastern Europe once did, it is now
fathers in our own country who wait in fear for the knock on the door in the
middle of the night . and not a peep is heard from politicians of any

Today there are approximately 2.5 million non-custodial parents plus their
families living in New York alone, and it ranks as the number two State in
the nation after California for the greatest number of children denied any
access at all to one or the other of their parents, with 518,000 of them at
last count. What does it say about the future of any political party that
continues to ignore this demographic?

What kind of politician welcomes the opportunity to publicly define his or
her position vis--vis the presumed rights of those who would terminate the
life of an innocent unborn child, sexual deviates, and dogs, while turning a
blind eye and remaining silent with respect to issues involving
non-custodial parents and the rights of children to a healthy and loving
relationship with both of their parents regardless of marital status and/or
family circumstances? What does it say, as well, about those who would vote
for them?

"As long as the government is perceived as
working for the benefit of the children, the
people will happily endure almost any curtailment
of liberty and almost any deprivation."

Adolph Hitler

You are right. The only thing that politicians and judges understand is
the power of the vote. That is what led me to create a website that I
hope will help to change some laws or expose those who continue to
violate our rights. The site is www.justiceforallchildren.org . Please
feel free to visit and register, also promote it to all who will
