Republicans (spout a crock of *&%$) Cite Abortion, Home Schooling to Defeat UN Disability Treaty
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who suffered disabilities while fighting in Vietnam, insisted that that the treaty would have no effect on abortion laws in the United States.
“With respect to abortion, this is a disabilities treaty and has nothing to do with abortion,” McCain told his Republican colleagues in a Monday speech on the Senate floor. “Trying to turn this into an abortion debate is bad politics and just wrong.”
Treaty also recognized the plight of women, children and the LGBT community—which may have been a factor in the outrage of the GOP. Although one they have found to be to their disadvantage to cite in their reasoning.
Not to mention the obvious —that the Constitution supersedes any treaties regarding conduct within the US.
