As we will see, articulating the reasons American law is firmly built upon the The Rights of Parents 21 parental rights doctrine will help diffuse a murkiness that has crept into recent legal debates. The second lesson our vain effort of imagining the state allocating children to selected adults teaches is that the subject is deeply political. The topic of parents’ legal rights is far more an inquiry into the political structure of a community than may seem apparent; it is inextricably bound up with the limits of state power.
Many children’s rights advocates have been especially critical of the traditional parental rights doctrine. The history of several freedom movements in the United States demonstrates that newly established freedoms for the oppressed frequently follow careful examination of venerable rules that once empowered one class of persons over another. This happened in the movement to abolish slavery and in the feminist movement. Some have applied similar reasoning to the children’s rights movement, leading to the claim that the parent-child relationship contains many of the same forms of oppression found in slavery and patriarchal power.
To some, particularly those in the children’s rights movement, the law focuses far too much on parents’ rights and far too little on the rights of their children. It is fine to create a scheme by which adults are free to live the lives they choose; but once we appreciate that we are simultaneously licensing them to have almost complete control over the lives of children, they would argue, it is essential that we consider the degree to which parental rights advance or contravene the rights of children.
