New Hampshire: Your Voice Crucial in Preserving Traditional Family

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

House Bill 51 is scheduled for an executive session on Wednesday,
March 14, 2007, at 10:45 a.m. If passed, this law would allow
unmarried heterosexual or even homosexual "couples" to jointly adopt
children. This law would also create a situation where a child could
possibly end up having more than two legal parents. Allowing
unmarried couples to jointly adopt children puts these adopted
children at risk by making them the only legal strand in divisive
custody battles when these unmarried couples decide to go their
separate ways. Statistics show that unmarried or co-habiting
"families" are less stable than married families.

Calls and emails to the House Child and Family Law Committee are
needed to oppose this dangerous bill.

For more information on House Bill 51, see
http://www.hslda.org/Legislation/State/nh/2007/NHHB51/default.asp .


ACTION REQUESTED:

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

"Please vote House Bill 51 inexpedient to legislate ("ITL") and
protect the historical understanding of the adoption process and to
preserve the traditional structure of the family. Children should not
have three or more parents nor should they serve as the only legal
connection between people. Such a situation puts children at the
focal point of terrible custody battles when these less stable
relationships dissolve and the child becomes the only 'thing' to fight
over."

You do not need to identify yourself as a homeschooler. Though this
bill affects homeschoolers, it also affects every family in New
Hampshire. It is important to call as many of these members as you
are able to, especially if they are your representative. However,
please be sure to include the following representatives in your
calling: Spaulding, Brown, Gargasz, Farley, Matarazzo and Walz. There
is no need to contact Representatives Itse or Garcia as they have
pledged to vote against this bill.
