IT’S BACK! No not FREDDY KRUGER but something MORE SCARY: The CRPD!

I certainly hope Michael Farris doesn’t mind if I lift this from an email.  But it’s important:

Dear Friend of Parental Rights,

Last year, your grassroots activism defeated the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). But this treaty has returned. We have been told that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will hold a new hearing on the treaty on Tuesday, November 5. We believe that this hearing marks the start of an aggressive push to ratify this dangerous UN treaty.

The CRPD surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental care of children with disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect Americans with disabilities. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families by giving bureaucrats – not the child’s parents – the power to decide what is in the best interests of a child with disabilities.

All 100 U.S. Senators, and especially the Senators on the Foreign Relations Committee, need to hear loud and clear that the United States must not surrender our freedom to the United Nations.

The following Senators are on the Foreign Relations Committee:

Democrats:

Robert Menendez (NJ):     (202) 224-4744
Barbara Boxer (CA):     (202) 224-3553
Benjamin L. Cardin (MD):     (202) 224-4524
Tom Udall (NM):         (202) 224-6621
Edward Markey (MA):     (202) 224-2742
Chris Murphy (CT):     (202) 224-4041
Tim Kaine (VA):     (202) 224-4024
Jeanne Shaheen (NH):     (202) 224-2841
Christopher Coons (DE):    (202) 224-5042
Richard J. Durbin (IL):    (202) 224-2152

Republicans:

Bob Corker (TN)     (202) 224-3344
Ron Johnson (WI)     (202) 224-5323
James E. Risch (ID)     (202) 224-2752
Jeff Flake (AZ)     (202) 224-4521
John McCain (AZ)     (202) 224-2235
John Barrasso (WY)     (202) 224-6441
Rand Paul * (KY)
Marco Rubio* (FL)
*These Senators strongly oppose the CRPD. Calls are unnecessary.

Even if your senators are not on the Committee, please take a moment to call their office right now. Your message can be as simple as the following:

“I urge you to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental care of children with disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect Americans with disabilities. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families by giving bureaucrats the power to decide what is in the best interests of a child with disabilities, not the child’s parents.”

You can reach your senators by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 or by clicking on your state at ParentalRights.org/States to find their contact info.

I have blogged on this before.  Go to here and here for details.  I’ll have more on this.  If you have a child that has ever been given help – an IEP, a 504 plan or even Child Find – your child is disabled and this treaty can authorize judges and bureaucrats to decide for you what is in the child’s best interests – even without abuse or neglect being found.  It will affect churches, too.  More in a few days.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
