parentalrights.org reports that Tuesday, December 4 is the date for the vote in the Senate on the UN Disabilities Treaty. Let’s just say NO! Here’s why!
1. It hurts parental rights. All disabled children (and every child who ever have had an IEP or 504 plan could be considered disabled) will be subject to bureaucrats and maybe some judges who could act against parents of “disabled children” if they elect to, say, homeschool their children. We know from the Rotherham fiasco that these decisions could be (and will be!) political or anti-Christian. They could say, “The public schools have the best resources for your disabled child.” If you say, no thank you, they could try to declare you unfit parents and take your children away! You can cite Article 7.2 for this language:
2. In all actions concerning children with disabilities, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.
2. There should not be these kind of decisions during a lame duck session unless it is in a manifest national interest. We have defeated representatives and senators making decisions that affect Americans in the future for some time. That is immoral unless it is a manifest, critical national interest. I would propose an constitutional amendment to restrict lame duck sessions except for items set by the President to be in the manifest national interest.
3. This treaty requires the US to answer to foreign institutions. That is unconstitutional. Our Constitution is the supreme law of the land (but for the Bible most dear!) and we cannot be answering to foreigners. PERIOD!
4. It is unnecessary. If we intend to use this law to force other nations to have wheelchair ramps, that is interventionism and we should remember what that great man once said, “We just don’t plain mind our own business.”! It also does not cover any nation but us – if we ratify it. Say this (thanks to parental rights.org):
Many senators are telling their constituents that we need this treaty so that Americans who travel abroad will be protected by ADA-type standards. Many disability groups are saying the same thing.
So when you call your senators today, if you have at any point heard them (or their staff) use this argument, please call them out on it. Here is what to say (in your own words):
I understand that Senator ______ believes that this treaty will protect Americans with disabilities when they live or travel abroad. Can you please tell me which section of the treaty contains this protection? Lawyers I trust tell us there is no such language in the treaty. Can you read it to me?
U.S. ratification of a treaty only binds the United States – no one else. So pick up the phone and fire away. But still be courteous. The truth is on your side; you can afford to be nice!
5. It might be used as a club to fight the death penalty for allegedly disabled defendants.
I’ll suggest several Senators to call:
In West Virginia: Call Senator Joe Manchin’s office at 202.229.3954
In Virginia: Call Senator Jim Webb’s office at 202.224.4024
In Nebraska: Call Senator Nelson’s office at 202.224.6551
In Texas: Call Senator Hutchison’s office at 202.224.5922
DO IT TODAY! Let’s push back the globalists and their agenda! (I went to Senator Webb’s office in Richmond Wednesday and got to explain to the staff people and write out a fax to be sent to DC!)
