This treaty endangers the sovereignty of the United States by placing the United Nations over the USA as the final authority for laws on people with disabilities. The United Nations is comprised of not only countries like the United States, but also countries that practice human rights abuses on a daily basis. These countries have no respect for life, and therefore we should not give them any say over our laws. The United Nations is an unelected group of individuals that can potentially wield power over the will of the American people. We cannot allow that to happen.
Secondly, this treaty would enshrine abortion into American law. Under the treaty, any means necessary for a disabled person to plan the spacing and number of children must be allowed. What if someone decides to only have two children, and finds they are pregnant with a third? The only way to stop them from having a third is abortion. Thus the treaty, by requiring that quote "The rights of persons with disabilities to decide freely and responsibly on the number and spacing of their children and to have access to age-appropriate information, reproductive and family planning education are recognized, and the means necessary to enable them to exercise these rights are provided," enshrines abortion into the law of any nation that accepts the treaty. This sentence, innocent as it may sound, could destroy millions of lives.
Thirdly, the treaty places the government as overseers of the decisions of the parents of disabled children. Parents would be stripped of their ability to make decisions in the best interest of their child; suddenly it would be the government's job.
Because of these three issues, it is not in America's best interest, nor in the best interest of the disabled, to pass this treaty. After all, most disabled children are killed by abortion before they are born. This treaty, rather than helping the disabled, enshrines into law a way to dispose of them, a way to discriminate against them, and a way to murder the disabled.

RU486 is a drug that under FDA protocol could only be given up the 7th week of pregnancy. Planned Parenthood routinely gives the drug much later to induce abortion, resulting even in the death of the mother.
The rest of the law, including the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, went into effect as planned on Tuesday. This part of the law was never challenged by Planned Parenthood.

The Post said:
Mr. Cuccinelli insisted that government should not interfere with contraception and denied that he ever backed legislation that could do so.
The facts suggest otherwise.
If the “preborn” are protected “from the moment of fertilization,” as the 2007 bill [which Cuccinelli co-sponsored] demanded, then contraception — which defeats a fertilized egg’s chances of becoming a living being — could be prohibited.
Today because of the early point in the pregnancy that chemical abortifactias can be taken, these drugs have been mislabeled by the public as contraceptives. The media has been all to happy to oblidge refusing to tell the real story behind what these drugs do. Perhaps we need to be more clear, but the Washington Post's blatant refusal to look at the facts shows the need for a media that cares about the truth.
McCrory said; “I would have vetoed HB 695 because it was clearly designed to restrict access. I am pleased that this new legislation is focused on the health and safety of women in North Carolina. These higher standards will result in safer conditions for North Carolina women. This law does not further limit access and those who contend it does are more interested in politics than the health and safety of our citizens.”
Planned Parenthood staged a twelve hour long protest in opposition to the bill.
The bill does three things;
#1 Opts North Carolina out of the Federal Abortion Exchange
#2 Outlaws "WebCam" Abortions. In which a doctor proscribes RU-486 while being miles away from the patient
#3 Outlaw Abortion based upon the gender of the child.
“Thousands of unborn children’s lives will be protected from abortion,” stated Barbara Holt, President of North Carolina Right to Life, “by preventing the expansion of tax payer funded abortion through the federal exchange. By passing this legislation, our state has also demonstrated that it will not tolerate unborn babies being aborted just because they are the wrong sex or doctors being miles away from the patient when they administer drugs that kill the unborn baby and can harm the child’s mother.”
