Illinois--Your Voice Crucial in Preserving Traditional Family

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

A bill which would permit same-sex couples to enter into spousal
unions and to have the same rights, responsibilities, and obligations
as married couples will be heard in committee on Tuesday, March 11,
2008. This bill, S.B. 2436, would erode the family, which has been the
bulwark of American society since its founding. We need your help to
stop this dangerous legislation.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please call the members of the Illinois State Senate Judiciary Civil
Law Committee and, in your own words, give them this message:

"Please oppose legislation that recognizes spousal unions, giving them
the same rights as married couples. Please vote against Senate Bill
2436, which is an attack on traditional marriage and erodes the
family."

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

Members of the Judiciary Civil Law Committee

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
