Right wing site ignoring the reality. Try this.<quoted text>
I'm convinced your problem is plain and simple ignorance. Either that or you believe what any leftwing propaganda source tells you.
A petition was signed by almost 9,000 parents of children with disabilities against the UN's CRPD.
The petition states, "As the parent or family member of a person with disabilities, or as one who lives with a disability, I join with Joni and Friends in urging the United States Senate to reject ratification of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This treaty threatens the traditional right of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children, especially if those children live with disabilities, and it limits the ability of the U.S. Congress to make laws for Americans."
Michael Farris, founder and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association, highlights the concerns of parents across the country.
"We all want to show our love and care for people with disabilities," Farris said. "But all of the rights that parents have under traditional American law, especially the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, will be undermined by this treaty. The United States is a leader in rights for persons with disabilities because we have stuck to the policy of Americans making law for Americans, and that principle should not be undermined."
As always, RealDave, knowledge is power.
"I have long advocated on behalf of equal access and non-discrimination for all Americans, including our veterans and todays disabled soldiers returning home from serving their nation in war," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in a statement.
"I support U.S. ratification of the disability treaty, as it seeks to advance these same fundamental values of equality and human dignity around the world."
The CRPD takes cues from the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act, which enacted vast protections for the disabled against discrimination in employment, public accommodations and other areas.
The convention currently has 112 ratifications and 153 signatories, according to the UN.
Senators taking part in Friday's announcement were: McCain, Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Tom Udall (D-N.M.)
You really should stay away from those fringe sites. Especially one that the birthers like to use.
