ALERT - We Need To Stop The Disability Treaty - ALERT
Posted by Bill MacSems on July 27, 2012 at 11:52am in Tea Party Nation Forum
Yesterday 3 Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee joined with the Democrats and passed the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty.
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who has led opposition to the treaty, fought for a reservation to the treaty but was voted down when Sens Dick Lugar (R-Ind.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) joined the 10 Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“The last thing we want as a country is for our courts to deem some of our disabled policies against the law, because they're different,” DeMint said. “Because we want them to be better than what the United Nations can do.”

We need to take action. Call the 3 senators who voted for the CRPD treaty and tell them to oppose the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty.
Senator Dick Lugar (R-Ind.) (202) 224-4814
Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) (202) 224-6441
Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) (202) 224-3643
Call your own senator and ask them to oppose the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty (CRPD).

UN Treaty Mischief on Disabilities
The United Nations in collusion with Obama's globalists has cooked up another scheme to slice off a piece of U.S. sovereignty and put us under global government. The plan is to stampede the Senate into ratifying the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, CRPD.
CRPD's Article 7 gives the government the power to override every decision of the parent of a disabled child by using the caveat "the best interest of the child." This phrase has already been abused by family courts to substitute judges' decisions for parents' decisions and transferring the use of that phrase to the government or to a U.N. committee is the wrong way to go.
