Nebraska--Your Voice Crucial in Preserving Traditional Family

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

Senators Lowen Kruse, Abbie Cornett, and KiAnna Schimek have
introduced Legislative Bill 571, which would allow any two adults,
"regardless of their marital status," to jointly adopt children.

This bill is relevant to homeschoolers because it 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.

Legislative Bill 571 (http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3784) is in
the Judiciary Committee, and is scheduled to be heard on Thursday,
March 1, 2007, at 1:30 p.m. in Room 1113 on the 1st Floor of the
Capitol Building. 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 Judiciary Committee and give
them this message:

"Please vote against Legislative Bill 571 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 does affect homeschoolers, it also affects every family in
Nebraska.
