According to World Net Daily, thirty one senators are already standing opposed to the United Nations “Convention of the rights of the child” treaty, which would strip the world’s parents of many of their rights, including the right to make decisions for their children that the child didn’t approve of (the child would have the right to seek governmental review of any parental decision they did not agree with), the right to bring their child up with their religious beliefs (the parent would only have the right to give advice regarding religion), no more spankings would be allowed, and children would have a right to legally enforceable leisure.
The World Net Daily reports the names of the senators who are standing up for the rights of parents:

It DOESN'T take a village to raise a child, it takes loving, devoted parents who make the best choices for their children, in SPITE of what the child wants. If you look around you at the choices that government agencies are making for us and our children, they CERTAINLY don't have our children's best interests in mind!
