New Hampshire--Your Voice Crucial in Preserving Traditional Family

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Representatives Priscilla P. Lockwood, Candace C. W. Bouchard, Frank
A. Tupper, Elizabeth D. Blanchard, and James R. MacKay have introduced
House Bill 51, which would clarify New Hampshire law so that unmarried
heterosexual and homosexual "couples" may jointly adopt children.

House Bill 51 would clarify that two unmarried adults in a "familial
relationship" may jointly adopt children. This legislation would allow
unmarried heterosexual and homosexual "couples" to "jointly" adopt
children as "couples." This is relevant to homeschoolers because this
bill undermines the historical understanding of the family.
Consequently, the fundamental right of parents to homeschool could be
affected because the right to homeschool is based on the sanctity of a
traditional interpretation of the family.

House Bill 51 (see http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3645) is in the
Children and Family Law Committee, and is scheduled to be heard today,
January 24, 2007, at 1:15 p.m. in Legislative Office Building Room
206. We are urging you to contact members of the committee (listed
below) and, if possible, attend the hearing to oppose this dangerous
bill.

ACTION REQUESTED:

Please call and/or email members of the House Children and Family Law
Committee and give them this message:

"Please vote against House Bill 51 to protect the historical
understanding of the adoption process and to preserve the traditional
structure of the family."

You do not need to identify yourself as a homeschooler. Though this
bill affects homeschoolers, it also affects every family in New
Hampshire.
