WORLDmag.com | Undue influence | J.C. Derrick | Aug 14, 12: The Senate Foreign Relations Committee last month approved the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and sent it to the full Senate, where it will need a two-thirds majority—67 votes—for ratification. The treaty’s supporters include Democrats and some Republicans, including Sen. John McCain and former President George H.W. Bush and former Sen. Bob Dole. They contend the agreement would essentially widen the effects of the Americans with Disabilities Act, giving disabled American citizens more rights when traveling abroad.
But according to Home School Legal Defense Association chairman Michael Farris the CRPD would undermine the American with Disabilities Act rather than strengthen it, taking away U.S. sovereignty and handing it over to unelected UN bureaucrats.
