Action Item: Oppose CRPD

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is back and likely to be reconsidered in June.  Because of you, we defeated this flawed treaty last December.  But the Senate is going to bring it up again, and I'm concerned they'll try to sneak it through quietly while most people are focused on Benghazi, the IRS scandal and recent missteps by the Department of Justice.

Well, we are paying attention and we need your help to defeat it again.

CRPD threatens U.S. sovereignty and parental rights, and if ratified, it would effectively put us under international law when it comes to parenting our special needs children. While CRPD may, on the surface, appear to protect those with disabilities, it actually gives the government the power, with direction from the U.N., to decide what is best for our children.  That is wrong and not something we should see in the United States of America.  

If CRPD were ratified and enforced, it would give the U.N. discretion over decisions about how we educate our special needs kids and could potentially eliminate parental rights for the education of children with disabilities.

Patriot Voices is putting the pressure on now to ensure the U.S. Senate does not pass this dangerous treaty. 

Please stand with us by emailing your U.S. Senators now and ask them to oppose CRPD.

Thank you for your support,

Rick Santorum
