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!

No UN treaty should be signed to govern US citizens. National sovereignty must not be compromised. Vote against the UN Disbilities Treaty.

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. Thank you.
