The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities has been averted, at least for now. Tune in today on Home School Heartbeat as Senator Rick Santorum shares with host Mike Farris what could be happening next with this treaty.

Mike Farris:
Senator, with 2012’s victory behind us, what do you see coming on the horizon regarding the future of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities?

Rick Santorum:
I know a lot of folks did not expect that treaty to be defeated. Foremost, Barack Obama and Harry Reid, who put this treaty up as the first treaty in the lame duck with the hope that they could pass this and then create a snowballing effect to pass even other treaties. But we were able to nip it in the bud, and I suspect that they will come back at it again in this session. And so, we have to continue to be vigilant and continue to communicate the opposition and educate senators about what this treaty really does. Let them know that this is a high priority issue; and tell them the truth, because the media and the folks who are the advocates of this treaty were not telling the truth.

Mike:
This treaty is something I know you and I will continue to oppose for the sake of our loved ones and the preservation of our liberty. Rick, thanks so much for sharing your concerns about this. I’m Mike Farris.
