Please call Senator Ayotte and urge her to oppose UN Disabilities
Treaty

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

As you know, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said that the
Senate will take up the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities (CRPD), possibly as early as tomorrow or Thursday.
Unfortunately, we have been unable to confirm that one of your
senators, Senator Kelly Ayotte, will oppose this treaty.

Senator Ayotte never signed a letter -
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16342 - that was signed by
thirty-six U.S. Senators stating that they "respectfully request that
no treaties be brought to the Senate floor for advice and consent
during the lame-duck session of the 112th Congress." These Senators
also promised in the letter that they "will oppose efforts to consider
a treaty during this time."

Senator Ayotte's silence on the CRPD is baffling and concerning. She
is a top conservative leader in the Senate and her support on this
issue is imperative. We need urgent calls to her office (even if you
have already called) urging her to stand against the CRPD and protect
U.S. sovereignty and parental rights. You can call her Washington,
D.C. office as well as one or more of her district offices, and also
email her: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16338 . If you are able
to visit a district office, that would also be wonderful.

Washington, D.C. Office 202-224-3324

Manchester Office 603-622-7979

Nashua Office 603-880-3335
----------------------------------------------------------
North Country Office 603-752-7702
----------------------------------------------------------
Portsmouth Office 603-436-7161
----------------------------------------------------------

Please give her staff some or all of this message:

"I urge you to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities. This treaty surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN
bureaucrats and will threaten parental care of children with
disabilities. Our nation already has laws to protect disabled
Americans. This treaty is unnecessary and will hurt families. If the
Senate ratifies this treaty, it would be the first time ever that the
U.S. has ratified a treaty that obligates us to recognize economic,
social, and cultural entitlements as rights under domestic law."

Then, please forward this email to your friends and family in New
Hampshire and urge them to call as well. Please also post this
information on social media to help get the word out to parents and
freedom-loving people in New Hampshire.

For more information on the dangers of this treaty please visit our
CRPD page: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16339

Your contacts will make a difference. In the past few hours, we have
seen several other conservative Senators who had been waffling on the
CRPD come out and strongly oppose it - all because of the calls and
emails they received from parents like you.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.

Sincerely,

Mike Smith
President, HSLDA
