Indiana--Calls Needed in Support of Traditional Marriage Amendment

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

As many of you may know, a traditional marriage amendment has been
introduced in Indiana. Senate Joint Resolution 7 would amend the
Indiana Constitution to state that marriage is between one man and one
woman.

Senate Joint Resolution 7 is currently in the Senate Judiciary
Committee. If the resolution is passed by the Senate, the marriage
amendment will go to the voters in 2008.

The proposed amendment states, "Marriage in Indiana consists only of
the union of one man and one woman. This Constitution or any other
Indiana law may not be construed to require that marital status or the
legal incidents of marriage be conferred upon unmarried couples or
groups."

Please call and email your state senator today and urge him or her to
support Senator Joint Resolution 7.

ACTION REQUESTED:

Please call your state senator and give him or her this message:

"Please vote for S.J.R. 7. Give citizens an opportunity to have their
voices heard in support of preserving traditional marriage."

You do not need to identify yourself as a homeschooler.

You can call the Indiana Senate hotline toll-free at (800) 382-9467.
To find the name of your state senator, use HSLDA's Legislative
Toolbox at http://www.hslda.org/toolbox . To email your state senator
you can also go to http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3692 .

BACKGROUND:

Your right to homeschool rests on another freedom: the freedom to
direct the education and upbringing of your children. Underlying your
right to homeschool are parental rights, which are supported by the
sanctity of marriage. Anything that undermines marriage may ultimately
undermine parental rights and therefore threaten your freedom to
homeschool.

Amending the Indiana Constitution will protect marriage from activist
state judges. Without this amendment, an activist judge, out of step
with the citizens, will one day redefine marriage for everyone.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom. We will be notifying you
next year as to the exact timing when the assembly will be voting for
this marriage amendment.

Sincerely,

Thomas J. Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
