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!

As a U.S. Senator you have sworn to up-hold the U.S. constitution. Therefore you don't sign or agree to ANYTHING that takes precedent over our Constitution or gives authority over U.S. citizens above our frame of government. To do so is treason and you should/will be held accountable. Agreeing to or signing on with the CRPD - though looking noble and innocuous at first glance - actually gives authority to another governing power other than the U.S. Congress and is a step down a slippery slope towards abdicating our national and cultural freedoms so long and so hard fought for. Therefore do not sign to any such agreement and it is your senatorial duty to work aggressively toward upholding our U.S. Constitution and to work aggressively against any senator or anyone who would seek to undermine the U.S. constitution.

USA already has laws in place for the disabled. Why would we allow other nations who mistreat their citizens oversight of parental rights and national sovereignty.

In my family we have a precious little boy who was born at 24 wks. and has palsy, encephalitis, and decreased vision. He is the smartest little guy who is very tech savvy, even at 8 yrs. old. He will contribute to our society. He is entitled to the help he needs from our gov't. UN has no right to any say-so in our affairs. Get us OUT of the UN!
