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!

Like I keep saying send the UN packing and keep them out of our country. The UN is populated by countries that are the worst offenders of human rights and this is just a shill to gain more control of our daily lives in the US and suck more money out of us. They don't care about the disabled and either does Obama. He has no respect for our veterans especially the wounded ones and no one should have the right to make decisions on how parents raise their children except the parents and certainly not a government and UN that we have now. Why is it so difficult for polititions to understand that our national sovereignty is paramount to any agenda of any other interest in the world. Your assignment gentlemen is to protect and defend those rights against ALL of our enemies! So I exhort you to vote NO on the UN disabilities treaty as it it a clear encrocachment on our national sovereignty.

I had a stroke 2 1/2 years ago. I have know family support. I know what it it to be in a wheel chair that does not work right. I thought I was buying it with little money I was saving, but no the dealer put it through medicare. They could get more money then with me. They didn't honor there lease agreement in making repairs on it. Yes, I know all about the Disabilities Treaty. You senators and house need to vote for it. Parental rights and national sovereignty must not be compromised. This doesn't effect me, but it does the children.What a crime that obammy wants the U.N. to control it.
