From America's Youth: Reject the UN CRPD



The undersigned youth call on the United States Senate to reject the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

It may sound good to support a treaty that claims to protect the rights of those with handicaps. However, these United States of America are a sovereign nation that already has one of the best track records in the world for looking after the rights of those with disabilities. Handing power regarding this issue to UN officials and their designated social workers is not necessary or prudent. Governmental treaties that start small and sound innocuous often become intrusive later when the rules change and the rights of the parents of handicapped children are negated. We must keep the hands of the United Nations out of our families. We don't want or need them to get involved in decisions of US families, and we are especially concerned about the impact this treaty could have on our future families. We urge the United States Senate to oppose ratification of the CRPD.

Freedom's Defenders When we reach 1,000 signatures, we'll be sending this petition to several US Senators, including Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Mike Lee who have been front and center in the fight against CRPD, as well as GOP Senators who voted in favor of the treaty in December, such as Senator John McCain.

  • Margaret Taylor We need to fight this. We do not need the UN dictating to us about our kids when the US has the best laws in the world. We need to protect our kids & parental rights.

  • Toby VanBus Please Reject the UN CRPD
    America already leads the way in the rights for disabled children! I fear congress does not care if it hurts this country or not, that its all about money and power.

  • Erin Gutwasser Disabled. Define that term. Seems to me that the definition could be construed to mean anything if a government entity wants it to; that's a dangerous thing. Protect US sovereignty & parental rights. Please keep the UN out of our family.
