  • Please call your senator about UN CRPD

    11/10/2014 6:33:40 AM PST · by CThomasFan · 6 replies
    Why Does HSLDA Oppose the Treaty? Promoting equal rights and protections for disabled persons around the world sounds like a great idea. But let’s take a closer look at what the treaty actually says and how it would impact the United States. Here are some of our most serious concerns. The CRPD could threaten homeschooling rights and parental rights. It would surrender parents and caregivers’ decision-making ability on behalf of their disabled children to unelected and unaccountable UN bureaucrats. The CRPD would override existing state laws, seriously damaging states’ rights. The CRPD would surrender our nation’s sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats.
  • Cruz Explains Why Americans with Disabilities Will Not Benefit from U.N. Disabilities Treaty

    The United States is the world leader regarding the rights of people with disabilities. But a United Nations treaty seeks to use Americans’ concern for the disabled to undermine U.S. sovereignty.It’s time for proponents of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) to come clean about this treaty. They claim, falsely, that it would help Americans with disabilities who are traveling abroad. But as Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said at The Heritage Foundation recently: "Ratification is not going to materially change the degree of compliance by foreign nations, but it is going to open avenues to undermine...

    Tonight The Brenner Brief radio show will feature Cam Edwards of Cam and Company on nranews.com and SiriusXM Patriot Channel. The discussion will focus on gun rights and Second Amendment issues with regard to the Obama Administration. In addition, Sara will continue the discussion on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), its defeat in the Senate last week and the very likely possibility it will be brought up for another vote [...]

    The Brenner Brief ^ | December 5, 2012 | Amanda Melson
    Yesterday the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) failed to reach the two-thirds majority needed to ratify the treaty. The White House expressed its dissatisfaction saying, in part, “We are disappointed that the overwhelming majority of Senate Republicans today blocked the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which would enshrine American standards that have been developed through decades of bipartisan cooperation.” The treaty is an international human rights instrument of the United Nations to protect individuals with disabilities. Parties are bound Under the Convention to ensure that disabled people enjoy the same human...
  • Don’t Let the Language Fool You: Here’s Why Conservatives Are against CRPD (shortened title)

    Who wouldn’t support a treaty with the language in its title that says it is for “Rights of Persons with Disabilities”? Turns out many Republicans oppose the U.N.’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and their reasons are worth taking a look at again, even if the arguments are not necessarily new. The Senate discussed the U.N.’s CRPD, which was completed in 2006, last week. Republicans held to their objection for taking up an international treaty during a lame-duck session of Congress, but debate for it will be on the floor Tuesday. As Betsy Woodruff for National...

  • U.N. Disabilities Treaty Would Limit U.S. Sovereignty

    IBD EDITORIALS ^ | November 29, 2012
    Rights: The Senate is considering a treaty which says "disability is an evolving concept" and which would infringe on U.S. sovereignty and the right to raise our children as American families see fit. Those who thought that the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) adequately guaranteed the rights of the handicapped to have access to all facets of American life were apparently wrong. The U.S. Senate is considering ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which President Obama signed in 2009 and which goes well beyond mandating wheel-chair ramps for public buildings. CRPD doesn't even bother to...

    Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, July 25, 2012 | By Sen. James M. Inhofe and Sen. Jim DeMint
    Liberals intent on imposing backdoor globalism < Snip > ... With LOST dead, the new treaties being promoted to take its place include the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Disabled, which calls for government agents to supersede the authority of parents of disabled children and even covers abortion. Also, the Obama administration has begun negotiations on a new U.N. treaty to create international gun control rules that could slowly erode our Second Amendment. The globalist ideologues behind these treaties are either ignorant of or hostile to the universal human experience that problems are best solved by the people...

Michael Farris is founder and chairman of Homeschooling Legal Defense Assocation HSLDA, and homeschooling father of 10. Dear HSLDA Members and Friends: After a brief postponement the U.S. Senate has decided to continue to push forward the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and has scheduled a mark-up and committee vote for tomorrow. As we have mentioned in previous updates, HSLDA believes that this treaty, while sounding good in name, could become a tool to restrict our rights as citizens and...
