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!

We are in a daily fight to preserve our Constitution. The very LAST thing we need is to let the UN have a crack at what our elected leaders are already doing. DESTROYING OUR CONSTITUTION!

PLEASE stand for America's sovereignty and vote against the United Nations Disabilities Treaty. It never ceases to amaze me why anyone who loves America would be in favor of any legislation that puts us under the control of any organization other than our awesome Constitution. I'm counting on you to defend my fights as an american citizen and as someone who you represent. Thank you

Are you kidding me? The UN has NOTHING to do with governing the United States of America in any way, shape or form. As a matter of fact I believe the UN should be removed from American soil.

Stop the U.N. at all costs. Seek measures to revoke their charter and evict then from our soil. Let them go to a country that embraces their anti-American agenda.

As a Senator, You are to uphold the constitution, not destroy its contents. We don't need any more attempts to eliminate our laws as they now stand.
