Glenn has been trying to take a break and recharge from politics because of how trying he believe the next four years are going to be. But today he had to get back in the game.
Glenn explained to his radio audience this morning that tomorrow the Senate will vote on the U.N.'s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
"I urge you to call the Senate and beg them to vote against this," Glenn emphasized. Later adding, "This will impact every parent and every -- every parent of a disabled child and every disabled person in America. Let alone the world. It is already passed the Senate committee. It is about to go to the floor of the Senate and it must be stopped."
Only 34 senators are needed to block the treaty that in Article 18, Section 2 states that all "children with disabilities shall be registered immediately after birth."
"Why are we registering children with disabilities?" Glenn questioned.
Being the father of a disabled child, Glenn also emphasized that America has great programs and opportunities for people with disabilities. If we want to improve what we are doing for these individuals even more, we don't need to go to the U.N..
"Let's have that conversation and fix it ourselves," he emphasized.
The U.N. resolution also states that these children "shall have the right from birth to a name, the right to acquire a nationality, and, as far as possible, the right to know and be cared for by their parents."
While there probably are countries where a baby born with a disability is not provided these things, America is certainly not one of them.
Glenn explained that, "As far as possible the right to know and be cared for by their parents. What that will be a lawsuit ready to happen. If you give up a disabled child because you can't handle, I can't be the parent of a disabled child. For some reason you can't handle it, if you give that child up for adoption to a loving family well you have a right to know and be cared for your parents. You can sue those parents for not taking care of you."
Essentially a parent who may have given their child up for adoptions would have to take them back and take care of them — or pay up. At least on the surface level, this would make it incredibly hard on an adoptive family or to adopt these children at all.
Glenn characterized the U.N.'s CRPD as being "pro-abortion," comparing it to a story on the UK's healthcare system that Glenn discussed last week where sick and disabled newborn babies are being put on death pathways. And unfortunately for us, this is the same healthcare plan much of Obamacare was modeled after.
"Your friends didn't listen when we had there were death pathways or death panels, and coming this June — it officially starts — the way you get kidneys (for a transplant) is changing. If you need a kidney transplant, good luck with that. You better be the right person and the right age. The elderly are not going to get them. The youth are not going to get them. It's going to be the 40-something that have the best odds putting more into the system than they take," Glenn said.
"We are living in a time now where reality has consequences."
Glenn urged listeners to call their Senator and encourage them to block the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. You can reach the Capitol Switchboard by calling this number: 202-224-3121.
