Please Call Senator Hutchison and Urge
Her to Oppose the UN Disabilities Treaty

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

We just received word that the U.S. Senate will hold a straight
up-or-down vote on ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of
Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on Tuesday, December 4.
This past Monday, the U.S. Senate decided, by a vote of 61-36, to
begin debate on ratification of the CRPD.

Texas Senator Kay Hutchison was one of the 36 senators who opposed
taking up the CRPD, but she is facing tremendous pressure from outside
groups to vote for the treaty.

Please contact Senator Kay Hutchison to thank her for her initial
vote, and urge her to continue to stand against attacks on parental
rights and intrusive United Nations treaties. Then, please forward
this email to your friends and family in Texas and urge them to call
as well. You can also post this information on social media to help
get the word out to parents and freedom-loving people in Texas.

Call Senator Hutchison at her Washington, D.C., office as well as one
or more of her district offices. You may consider also sending an
email http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16354 or visiting a
district office in person.

Abilene Office

Dallas Office

Houston Office

San Antonio Office

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."

Your contact will make a difference. In the past few days, 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,

James R. Mason III
Senior Counsel
