A few quotes from people against the Treaty:
Republican Jesse Helms: "It is a terrible treaty negotiated by radical feminists with the intent of enshrining their radical antifamily agenda into international law." Radical, man, radical. Drat those radical feminists!
Lester Munson, spokesman for minority Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee: "Why are we wasting our time supporting an institution that is so obviously irrelevant, when we have real foreign policy concerns to address?" Wow.
