New Mexico: Your Voice Crucial in Preserving Traditional Family

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

The New Mexico legislative session is drawing to a close. We have
written to you before about H.B. 603, the bill which would permit
same-sex couples to enter into spousal unions and to have the same
rights, responsibilities, and obligations as married couples. This
bill has already passed through the House as well as the Senate
committees. The next step is a vote by the full Senate. H.B. 603 will
probably have a vote on the Senate floor sometime between today,
Thursday, March 15, and noon on Saturday, March 17, when the
legislative session closes.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please call and/or email your New Mexico state senator and, in your
own words, give them this message:

"Please oppose legislation that recognizes domestic partner rights.
Please vote against Senate Bill 603, which is an attack on traditional
marriage, erodes the family and endangers parental rights."

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

You can find how to contact your Senator by using our Legislative
Toolbox at

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.

Thank you for standing with us for freedom.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> 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.
