New Hampshire--Action Needed to Protect Parental Rights

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

New Hampshire representatives and friends of New Hampshire
Homeschoolers, Daniel Itse, Paul Ingbretson and Dudley Dumaine are
sponsoring a state constitutional amendment to protect parental
rights. If passed, CACR23 would allow New Hampshire voters to decide
whether their Constitution should be amended to include the following:


"The State shall not abridge the right, role, or responsibility of
parents to control the welfare and education of their children."

The House Children and Family Law Committee is currently considering
the measure, and a public hearing on it is scheduled for this
Wednesday, January 9, 2008. It is important that as many parental
rights supporters as possible attend this hearing and express their
views.

ACTION REQUESTED

Attend the public hearing on Wednesday, January 9, 2008, at 1 p.m. in
Legislative Office Building 206 and express your support for CACR23.

If you are unable to attend the hearing, please call or email members
of the Children and Family Law Committee, and in your own words, give
them the following message:

"Please support CACR23. The right of parents to direct their
children's education and upbringing is being threatened on many
fronts, and a constitutional amendment will help preserve it."

Please contact the representatives below according to the first letter
of your last name:
A through F, contact Reps 1 through 4
G through K, contact Reps 5 through 8
L through P, contact Reps 9 through 12
Q through U, contact Reps 13 through 16

BACKGROUND

Your right to homeschool rests on the freedom to direct the education
and upbringing of your children. Unfortunately, this freedom is under
attack from multiple sources, particularly international law, and only
a federal constitutional amendment will ensure that the courts of our
nation protect the fundamental right of parents to raise their
children. And only a constitutional amendment will override
international law that seeks to undermine the parental role.

We believe that the only complete solution to the danger confronting
the child-parent relationship is a federal Parental Rights Amendment,
which will place current Supreme Court doctrine protecting parental
rights into the explicit text of the Constitution. HSLDA is
partnering with parentalrights.org in support of this amendment.

To learn more about protecting parental rights, and to sign the
parental rights petition, please visit www.parentalrights.org.

Thank you for your support!


Very truly yours,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
