Urgent Action Needed! Contact your Senators!

Urgent Action Needed!

Contact your Senators!


Senator Harry Reid has decided to bring a treaty, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, up for vote this week.  It is important for all of us to contact our senators and urge them not to ratify this treaty.  Despite its attractive title, the treaty effectively supplants parents with government in deciding the best way to care for their children with disabilities.  This is never a good thing and is actually gravely destructive.  Many people also see the treaty as a threat to U.S. sovereignty.

Please take a little time to learn about the treaty and encourage your senators not to ratify it.  Rick Santorum’s Patriot Voices has been working very hard to protect us from it, and is a good source of information.  Mr. Santorum, of course, is an advocate for children with disabilities and the father of a child with Trisomy 18.  You can also watch the video below for some perspective on the treaty.
