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!

There is a lot of trash in Congress, time to take it out. Trash collection day is coming up in 2014! This treaty should have never even made it to the floor anyone that got it there is part of the trash. All you have to do is remember that fact.

Gentlemen, let me be crystal clear: Any treatise supported by Harry Reid MUST be opposed. Any LAW supported by Harry Reid MUST be opposed. Any fumes emitted from Harry Reid's mouth, MUST be opposed.

The USA is a sovereign nation in which we citizens enjoy Constitutionally protected individual rights. The United Nations consists of a group of backward, dysfunctional two bit third world dictators! The best possible thing to do is to remove the US from the UN and permanently remove the UN from American soil!! LONG LIVE THE USA!

Is John McCain becoming senile? I once considered him a loyal American. Maybe he should still be at the Hanoi Hilton. We would be safer with him locked up.

Why are you, the distinguished Senators, "handing off" our soverign rights as a nation to the United Nations. This is clearly an act of subjugation and surrender to nations and people who we citizens did not elect to represent us. Have you forgotten our Constitution? God help the United Stese and protect us from our leaders!
