Katy Faust: Rights of children precede adult choices

December 23, 2019

"The idea is them — the children — before us, the adults," said Katy Faust, founder of and contributor to The Federalist. "Children have very specific rights when it comes to their life, and their right to be known and loved by the two people responsible for their existence. The only way to respect those rights is for adults to conform their lives to the rights of children. What we're seeing in pretty much every area of American life — whether it's in the abortion debate, or issues of divorce or issues of reproductive technologies or cohabitation, is the adults saying: No, this is what I want and this is how I'm going to order my family, regardless of whether or not it respects children's rights."
