Now that the government is back up and running so is the UN Treaty for Disabled Children

Parents please be aware, the UN Treaty for disabled children is back on the voting poll again.  If passed this bill will ultimately change first the parents of disabled children but it will then pass over to those of normal functioning development.  In a nutshell what this bill will do is to limit the authority of a parent to the “United Nations” or those in charge of the decision making.  If your child needs medical care, decisions will no longer be for the family to decide all authority will be given to the “universal policy” that has been implemented.   Visit Home School Legal Defense for more information

Why Does HSLDA Oppose the Treaty?Promoting equal rights and protections for disabled persons around the world sounds like a great idea. But let’s take a closer look at what the treaty actually says and how it would impact the United States. Here are some of our most serious concerns:

  • The CRPD could threaten homeschooling rights and parental rights. It would surrender parents and caregivers’ decision-making ability on behalf of their disabled children to unelected and unaccountable UN bureaucrats.
  • The CRPD would override existing state laws, seriously damaging states’ rights.
  • The CRPD would surrender our nation’s sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats.

This treaty is unnecessary for the United States to sign. The U.S. is the world leader in protecting the rights of those with disabilities. Through our 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act and 1997 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, we already provide as much or more protection for the disabled than the CRPD.
