Kansas: Please call your Senators now and urge them to oppose UN
Disability Treaty

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

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.

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran was one of 36 senators who opposed taking
up the CRPD, and we are grateful for his support. Senator Pat Roberts
was not present during the vote.

Both of these senators are facing tremendous pressure from outside
groups to vote for the treaty.

Please contact Senator Jerry Moran (you can thank him for his initial
vote) and Senator Pat Roberts and urge them to stand against attacks
on parental rights and intrusive United Nations treaties. Then, please
forward this email to your friends and family in Kansas 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 Kansas.

Call Senator Roberts at his Washington, D.C., office as well as one or
more of his district offices. You may consider also sending an email -

office in person.

Call Senator Moran at his Washington, D.C., office as well as one or
more of his district offices. You may consider also sending an email -
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16362 - or visiting a district
office in person.

Please give their 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,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Contact Attorney
