Thursday is a big day, but not in a good way.

Here's why.

On Thursday, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will vote on a treaty that would put us under international law when it comes to parenting our special needs children.

Yes, you read that right.

In the United States of America, there is actually discussion about adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which would give the U.N. oversight of the healthcare and education choices parents with special needs kids make.  It is outrageous that the government could tell me and you what is best for our children, particularly when they've never met the child. 

As parents of a precious special needs child, Karen and I have already written to every U.S. Senator and are making calls as well to stop the ratification of this treaty.

But we can't do it alone.  Please join Patriot Voices, the Home School Legal Defense Association and others to help us stop the U.S. Senate from considering this deeply misguided treaty.

We need you to do four things to help us stop CRPD:

•  Please call your senator and ask them to vote NO on this treaty. Find your senator's contact information here.

•  Please email your senator and ask them to vote NO on this treaty. We've made this easier by providing  sample email copy for you to use.

•  Please call the White House at 202-456-1111 and ask President Obama to withdraw this treaty from the U.S. Senate now.

•  Please Tweet on our behalf: "Help stop ratification of UN Disabilities Treaty #CRPD Contact US Senator today "

If this were to pass, CRPD would become the law of the land under the U.S. Constitution's Supremacy Clause, and would trump state laws, and could be used as precedent by state and federal judges. This treaty would give the government, acting under U.N. instructions, the ability to determine for all children with disabilities what is best for them. It also 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.

Please join our fight and tell our Senators that this treaty has no place in the United States of America.

Thank you and God Bless for all that you're doing to stand with us!


All my best,


Rick Santorum
