Help Patriot Voices Stop CRPD

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, or CRPD, is back and likely to be considered in September.  Because of you, we saw defeat of this flawed treaty last year, 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.

Sample Letter:

Dear Senator Udall:
Dear Senator Bennet:

I understand that the U.S. Senate could be voting soon on ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). I urge you to please VOTE AGAINST the ratification of this treaty because I am deeply opposed to it.

This treaty, if ratified and enforced, would effectively put us under international law when it comes to parenting our special needs children, and there are two provisions in this treaty that concern me the most:

– First, one provision in the treaty would give the government, acting under U.N. instructions, the ability to determine for all children with disabilities what is best for them.

– Secondly, if CRPD were ratified 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.

I am sure you can see why this would be concerning to me as someone who is an advocate for special needs kids. Every child in this country is unique, especially those with special needs, and parents who know their children best should be the ones making decisions about their care, not the federal government and especially not the UN. How can the government possibly know what is best for a child they have never met?

I am asking you to please vote NO on this treaty. I look forward to your response.

Thank you,

Sincerely,

  1. Comment? Yes, this is bullshit. Thank you. God made all children. And you are fear mongering that this treaty because it is international is bad. You are crazy. Did you ever read it? Or has some groups, like AG Bell told you it is bad no no no? You will not lose your kids to the UN. You will not be arrested. You have freedoms and choices. However, it gives parents and kids rights to those choices. While in the US we have a lot, we do not have enough power to tell teachers, doctors, lawyers, judges, politicians to give us our ADA rights. That is because big businesses and people who oppress those with disabilities because it makes them money have contacted Congress to weaken the ADA. And they have been using you now to prevent the CRPD from ratification. Fact is the ADA was looked at by other nations not as prosperous as us to give their disabled people some hope of a life, and the CPRD would SERIOUSLY help them. Us not ratifying it means they figure they should wait too. Your fears are unfounded. I thought the Bible said Fear not? You are letting fear mongers cause you to do harm to others. And that is why I am commenting. Shame on you.
