New Hampshire: Your Help Needed to Defend Traditional Family

Dear HSLDA members and friends,

There is a proposed amendment to the New Hampshire Constitution
("CRCA1") defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
The proposed constitutional amendment is scheduled for an Executive
Session on Thursday, March 22, at 10 a.m. However, four other bills
that would result in legal recognition of same-sex unions the state
are being heard at the same time. These are House Bills 235, 437,
791, and 905.

It is critical that you contact members of the House Judiciary
Committee and encourage them to vote against House Bills 235, 437,
791, and 905 and for the marriage amendment.

These bills are important because they affect 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.


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

"New Hampshire law already defines marriage as the union of a man and
a woman. This should not be changed. Please oppose legislation that
recognizes same-sex marriage and support the constitutional amendment
defining traditional marriage. Please vote against House Bills 235,
437, 791, and 905, which will erode the strength of the traditional
family and threaten parental rights."

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

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
