Urgent: Calls Needed as NH Parental Rights Bill Faces Committee Action
S.B. 272, the Parent’s Bill of Rights in Education, which previously passed the New Hampshire Senate, is scheduled for an Executive Session before the New Hampshire House Education Committee tomorrow, Tuesday, April 25, at 10:30 AM, in the Legislative Office Building (LOB), Rooms 205-207.
This powerful bill declares “that parents have a fundamental right and responsibility to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their minor children….” It provides numerous protections for parents from government encroachment, particularly in the area of education, whether children are educated in a home school, private school, or public school.

Your message can be as simple as the following:
“As a New Hampshire voter, I respectfully ask you to support S.B. 272, the Parent’s Bill of Rights in Education. The vital role of a parent in the life of a child must be protected. It’s time for New Hampshire law to catch up with a hundred years of U.S. Supreme Court precedent and protect these rights with the respect they deserve. Sixteen state legislatures have already passed similar laws to establish parental rights as fundamental, and New Hampshire should be the 17th state to do so.”
You may remember that H.B. 10, a similar bill to protect parental rights in New Hampshire, was narrowly defeated last month in the New Hampshire House. Legislators who support parental rights are not giving up, and neither are we. Please email the Committee members, and then please forward this email to as many friends and family in New Hampshire as you can.
