Oppose UN Disabilities TreatySubmitted by juneau on Fri, 09/21/2012 - 16:30
ACTION NEEDED: Call both of your U.S. senators right now and ask them to support Senator Lee. You can reach your two U.S. senators by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121, or by using our Legislative Toolbox. Give them some or all of this message:
“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 disabled Americans. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families. If the Senate ratifies this treaty, it would be the first time ever that the U.S. has ratified a treaty that obligates us to recognize economic, social, and cultural entitlements as rights under domestic law.”
Then, please forward this email to your friends and family and urge them to call, too.
