***UPDATE - JULY 17, 2014***

CRPD is back.  The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has announced it will hold a hearing on CRPD on July 22nd at 10 AM ET.


The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) threatens U.S. sovereignty and parental rights.  This treaty, if ratified, would effectively put us under international law when it comes to parenting our special needs children. While CRPD may, on the surface, appear to protect those with disabilities, it actually gives the government the power, with direction from the U.N., to decide what is best for our children.

That is wrong and not something we should see in the United States of America.   

There are two provisions in this treaty that are most concerning:

  1. One treaty provision would give the government, acting under U.N. instructions, the ability to determine for all children with disabilities what is best for them. 
  2. If CRPD were ratified, it would give the U.N. discretion over decisions about how we educate our special needs kids and could potentially eliminate parental rights for the education of children with disabilities.

Patriot Voices is putting the pressure on now to ensure the U.S. Senate does not pass this dangerous treaty.   

Please take action with us!

  1. Stand with us by adding your name below to help ensure CRPD is not ratified. 
  2. Contact your U.S. Senators and ask them to oppose CRPD.
  3. Contact members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and ask them vote NO on CRPD.
  4. Read and share this article written by Rick Santorum about CRPD.
  5. Watch Rick Santorum, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Michael Farris (Home School Legal Defense Association) voice opposition at a recent press conference on Capitol Hill.
  6. Send this customizable email to friends and family.
  7. Send a letter to the editor to spread awareness.

Please stand with us. If God Almighty entrusted us to parent our precious Lillian, who is the UN or the senate to think they have the authority to take that right from us.

We must be diligent in making sure that US citizens and their governments make decisions for us and not international groups.

This would surrender freedom for parents to make decisions for their disabled children which should be a fundamental right.

Please allow parents to make decisions for their children in the United States. My brother is very special and I wouldn’t have wanted the U.N. to make any decisions for him. If you have a child with a disability in the United States, the parent should be able to decide what is best for their own family. God Bless America!

Our family does not want the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty. We definitely do not want our Senate to ratify it!

Thank you.
