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!

I agree with everyone that says that this is a violation of the oath of office and totally 100% against our constitution which has kept us the greatest nation in the world for a long time. Anyone who votes for this is a traitor to our country.

No treaty should be ratified that allows an intrnational law to usurp our federal, state, counties, parishes or municpal laws. US citizens should not be controled by international laws. treaty We have excellent disabilty laws, better than what are in this treaty. McCain's idiotic statement that he wants to make sure our disable vetrrans visiting other Nations have accomodations for their wheelchairs, etc has no bearing as we have laws governing this. Therefore, I repeat myself, no treaty that takes away our sovernity and puts this nation under international law should EVER be ratified. Few US citizens are aware of Article 6 of the Constitution.

I am considered disabled under our countrys' ADA laws. I've read the UNs' "concerns" in this treaty, and as usual it can do nothing to improve, advance, or help anyone in any way. ONLY CONTROL...As you have taken an oath to uphold The Constitution of The U.S.A. you must see that the U.N. has absolutely no interest in your obligation. Respectfully, an American Citizen

It is inexcusable for a supposed hero of our great country (i.e. John McCain) to act so much like a traitor and then try to say he is loyal to America!

This one really cranks me. ANYONE who has traveled to Europe knows that they are 50 years behind us in handicapped access. I dare anyone of you 100 supposed public servants to NAME ONE, NAME ONE, place you have seen access for the handicapped over there. You can't, because they do not exist. using disabled people to advance your sinister intentions is, just evil. And I'm not even a very religious person. Shame on you.
