Thank you Ken Blackwell, from a disability advocate with a 20 year track record. American signing of a UN treaty of this kind would put blood on all of our hands, and take a horrible bite out of US sovereignty. Having said that, the specific rights and concerns of Americans with disabilities, have not had enough political attention in this past year. In rejecting this treaty for all the good reasons you mention, we must set the best example in the world for dignity, humanity, inclusion, integration, opportunity, and self-determination...working with, not FOR, people with disabilities and those advocates that they choose freely. Kudos
