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!

If I had money to send to all who ask, I would have nothing left. I am retired teacher, my husband is retired military, and the wolf is at the door if Obama takes much more away from people like us we will really become a 3rd world country which is what he wants us to be. He is very rich already, and will take his place in the elite. Will he really get the votes to turn us over to the UN? Please get your colleagues to fight for the real Americans.

It's time we as a Nation band together and tell these little over 500 peoplw in D.C. we aren't going to continue to let them be dictators and tell us how we are going to live and what we can and can't do. I'm sick of these self serving dictators.

I am all for protecting the rights of the disabled, however I believe the people of the United States should follow our constitution, not the whims of UN member nations that will undoubtedly conflate the issues to control the US.

Our own laws on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities provide all that anyone needs. We don't need the UN deciding what our nation needs.
