Just received this email and wanted to shout it to the world!!!! :D Praise God for His intervention!
"Just a few minutes ago the United States Senate rejected ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The vote of 60 to 38 in favor of the treaty was short of the required two-thirds margin (66 in favor) necessary to ratify a treaty according to Article II of the U.S. Constitution.
Less than an hour before the vote, Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama testified that his office has received more than 1,000 letters and emails in opposition to the treaty – and only 40 in favor. This shows an amazing outpouring from defenders of parental rights!
While we recognize that our success in Alabama is not indicative of the support level in every state, we would not have achieved this victorious outcome without the overwhelming support of concerned Americans just like you. Thank you so much for your calls, letters, and emails to oppose this ratification!" - Parental Rights Email
I wanted to say thank you as well, to all of you who supported ParentalRights.org and called or emailed your Senators asking them to oppose CRPD.
Those who were for the treaty have now realized that they will not be able to push a treaty like this onto the people of the U.S.A.....However, this means that they will be working harder next time....which means we need to be keep up-to-date with what they are doing and make sure our voice is heard!
