Ky Right To Life Yeiser

Reported last week on the Christian Medical and Dental Society website, the UN is presenting a treaty that would override U.S. national sovereignty.

"Forty-six national leaders including CMDA signed this letter urging the U.S. Senate to reject the U.N. Disabilities Treaty. The CRPD is especially worrisome because it does not define 'disability,' stating it is an 'evolving concept.' It replaces parental rights with 'the best interests of the child' standard, making government actors ultimately responsible for final decisions in the care of a child with a disability."
