Tell U.S. Senators: Oppose the U.N. Disabilities Treaty!

The United Nations Disabilities Treaty –called the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) – threatens national sovereignty and basic parental rights.

“This convention sets a precedent for treaties that would actually allow an international body to define our own domestic law.” – Senator Mike Lee (R-UT)

The United Nations Disabilities Treaty –called the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) – threatens national sovereignty and basic parental rights. 

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) says that “more than two dozen areas of national life including education, health, employment, accessibility, and independent living” would be affected by the CRPD if adopted by the Senate.

And let’s not forget that treaties – according to Article 6, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution – become part of the “supreme law of the land.” 

Signed in 2009 by former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, the treaty was brought to a vote on December 4, 2012 and narrowly failed by only five votes. 

Senators right now are talking about resurrecting CRPD and bringing it to vote in the near future. In fact, Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is trying to make deals with Republican lawmakers right now to make sure the treaty passes the second time around. 

But we can’t let this happen. Contact Senators and demand that they oppose the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities!

Take Action! Sign the petition and send a free message to both of your U.S. Senators telling them to vote against the United Nations Disabilities Treaty! Parental rights and national sovereignty must not be compromised!

When is the UN going to get off our backs. Just because they have Obama in their pocket doesn't mean America is. He is a globalist and "we the people" just want to be left alone . We are more than capable to make our own laws and defend our own turf. I don't know why the UN is on our turf. They should relocate where their friends are in China or Russia. We already have a President that is circumventing and undermining our laws . We don't need any outside help to do the same. Vote against the UN disabilities treaty. Will the UN ever understand what this nation means to us? They have no investment here while we have the blood of our forefathers invested here and that we are prepared to do as they did to keep her free from the interference from the UN or any other enemy, foreign or domestic. Vote No to the UN and introduce our own legislation to get them off of our land. They have overstayed their welcome. We don't have to be appeasers to the whims of the rest of the world. Enough is enough! Thanks

If the US was a laggard, not a leader, then the UN could step in in this regard. But we already lead in this field, thus the Senate should deny the UN on this subject.

You took an oath to "Protect and Defend the Constitution" A vote for this and support for the upcoming, UN Small Arms Treaty would be seen as a violation of your oath," To Protect and Defend the Constitution" Too many lives were sacrificed by men who took this oath seriously. We expect you to do the right thing and OPPOSE these UN threats to our Constitutional Rights. You were elected to protect our rights.

Stop ruining our country and start protecting it, because when we have found that there is no more liberty to ease our conscience, we will ultimately have to fight back and take it, causing the blood of tyrants to flow. Your Choice, Protect U.S., or prepare live the rest of your lives not knowing if any of the hundreds of millions of Citizens are creeping up behind you. And I can guarantee, There will be someone looking for you until the job is done.

It should be outright illegal for the government to sign treaties with the UN or anyone else (as in the case of the TPP) which compromise US sovereignty or impose other restrictions upon US citizens - Who the f- does our government represent?
