Verona, PA - Patriot Voices, the grassroots organization founded by Rick and Karen Santorum committed to promoting faith, family, freedom and opportunity, celebrates its first anniversary this month. Since its founding 12 months ago, Patriot Voices has made significant progress in strengthening conservative values.
"Patriot Voices has established itself as an outspoken voice advancing the conservative cause in this country. With issues ranging from reducing government spending to standing up for a strong national defense, exposing the hypocrisy of the Obama administration, fighting to protect our 2nd Amendment freedoms, and protecting life - born and unborn - at every stage, Patriot Voices is standing tirelessly for the values that conservatives hold dear," said Rick Santorum.
Patriot Voices has over 140,000 members, over 400 state and local chapters and has held over 900 grassroots events across the country.
"Patriot Voices' most significant achievement in the last twelve months was the defeat of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). This U.N. treaty would have put us under international law when it comes to parenting our special needs children and could have given the government the power, with direction from the U.N., to decide what is best for our children," Santorum continued. "Karen and I view CRPD through a personal lens because of our daughter Bella. We saw firsthand that some of the healthcare advice we received for Bella could have been harmful to her, and had we not been able to step in and make choices for her care, she may not be thriving the way she is today. CRPD is likely to come up again in the summer of 2013, and Patriot Voices is mobilizing its forces to defeat it once again."
Patriot Voices has also been a leading voice in protecting 2nd Amendment rights and worked to expose the hypocrisy of lawmakers on ObamaCare once reports surfaced that many who voted for ObamaCare are finding ways to exempt themselves from having to follow that law. Patriot Voices also pushed for passage of the "No Budget, No Pay Act," which President Obama signed into law earlier this year, that would require members of Congress to forgo their paycheck if they don't adopt a budget on time.
Most recently, Patriot Voices launched a compelling video calling on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to tell the truth about what happened when four brave Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya last year. Watch the video HERE.
