New Hampshire--Calls and Testimony Needed to Support Definition of Marriage

New Hampshire--Calls and Testimony Needed
to Support Definition of Marriage

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Because the fundamental right of parents to homeschool is based on a
traditional interpretation of the family, this is relevant to
homeschoolers and should be supported.

On January 4, 2007, CACR1, sponsored by Representatives Dumaine,
Headd, Itse, Elliot, and Boyce, was introduced in the New Hampshire
Legislature. This bill would allow New Hampshire citizens to vote in
November 2008 on whether to amend the New Hampshire Constitution to
define marriage as a union between one man and one woman.

You can view the text of CACR1 here: .

This bill has been referred to the Judiciary Committee and scheduled
for a hearing on Thursday, February 1, 2007, at 10 a.m. in the
Representatives Hall. Your calls and testimony to the members of the
committee are needed to support this proposed constitutional


Please call and email as many members of the House Judiciary Committee
(listed below) as possible with this message in your own words:

"Please support HCACR1, which would preserve traditional marriage
between one man and one woman."

-> 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
