URGENT: Senate Vote Set – Call Now!
We have just received word that the U.S. Senate will hold a straight up or down vote on Tuesday, December 4, on whether or not the United States should ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). If 2/3 of the senators present vote yes, the United States will ratify this UN treaty. ParentalRights.org does not oppose the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We do not oppose the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). We appreciate that these laws safeguard the rights of parents whose children have disabilities. But we oppose the CRPD for the simple principle that Americans should make the law for America. It is wrong for the United States to ratify a United Nations treaty that will give up our sovereignty to unelected, unaccountable UN bureaucrats. We have been told that the pro-CRPD side is waging one of the most aggressive, organized lobbying campaigns ever. The U.S. State Department and Obama Administration officials are pressuring individual senators to support the CRPD. It is crucial that senators on our side hear from you, your friends, your family, and from anyone who opposes giving the UN power over our nation, and over our precious children and family members who have disabilities. Please call your two U.S. Senators today, tomorrow, Monday, and Tuesday. You can reach them through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121, or you can find your Senators’ phone numbers by clicking on your state at “PartentalRights.Org“.
