Pennsylvania--Urgent Calls Needed To Protect Marriage

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

We have just received word that the Pennsylvania House Committee on
State Government will be voting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 15, 2006,
on House Bill 2381. This bill is a constitutional amendment to define
marriage in Pennsylvania as between one man and one woman.

Members of the Pennsylvania Senate and House of Representatives need
to know that homeschooling families support this legislation. House
Bill 2381 would not only prohibit same-sex marriage but also any form
of civil union or domestic partnership between homosexuals. Your
immediate communication to the members of the committee will greatly
encourage them to send this bill on to the full House for a vote.

Crucial to this effort are Democratic Representatives Sean Ramalay and
Florindo Fabrizio and Republican Representative David Steil. These
legislators are considered key swing votes on this important issue.

Please join in this fight to preserve the traditional definition of
marriage and family in Pennsylvania. Contact members of the House
Committee on State Government and your own state senator and
representative today!

Action Requested:

(1) Please call or write (both would be better) Representatives
Ramaley, Fabrizio, Steil, and as many other members of the House
Committee on State Government with this message:

"Please support House Bill 2381, the Marriage Protection Amendment,
which would preserve traditional marriage by defining it as between
one man and one woman."

Government is as follows:

-> Have you ever yelled into the wind, only to hear the sound of your
voice blown back at you?

It's hard to be heard in the midst of a storm. Trying to influence
federal legislation is much like yelling to be heard while
standing in a fierce wind. Yet when 80,000 voices join together,
they become a powerful force that cannot be drowned out.
Join HSLDA to be heard above the tempests that threaten homeschool
