UPDATE: AR75 passed the General Assembly by a vote of 49 to 13. Copies of the resolution will be sent to U.S. Senate leadership.
New Jersey Tell the General Assembly:
Say NO to the UN’s Power Grab!
June 13, 2014
On Monday, June 16th, the New Jersey General Assembly will vote on AR75, a resolution that calls on the United States Senate to ratify the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The CRPD is a priority item on the globalist agenda, with many provisions dangerous to national sovereignty and limited government. It mandates that its provisions “shall extend to all parts of federal states without any limitations or exceptions,” a direct challenge to the rights of communities, states, or even Congress to make laws. Provisions about children offer no allowances for the rights of parents. Ratification of the convention would make it the law of the land, and the executive branch would not hesitate to enforce the convention as it sees fit, without regard for constitutional restrictions, congressional statutes, or state laws. To cap it all off, the United States already has in place the Americans With Disabilities Act, which provides many protections and benefits for persons with disabilities. Phyllis Schlafly wrote of the treaty, “The notion that the UN can provide more benefits or protections for persons with disabilities than the U.S. is bizarre. The United States always treats individuals, able or disabled, rich or poor, innocent or guilty, better than any other nation.”
We don’t need more UN meddling in our government, but this convention’s whole purpose is to give them more control, not to help the disabled. Please call or email your member of the General Assembly and tell him or her to vote NO on AR75.
Vote no on AR75!
We urge you to vote no on AR75, which memorializes the United States Senate to ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The CRPD is a bad treaty which gives more power to the United Nations while doing nothing to help disabled Americans.
The provisions of the CRPD are dangerous to American independence. If it is ratified, the president can override federal and state laws to secure compliance with the treaty. Furthermore, the rights of parents are not respected. The CRPD is purely a power grab by international bureaucrats.
Our disabled family and friends deserve our support, but the CRPD will not help them – it will only damage our form of government. Please stand for national sovereignty and reject AR75.
