They aren’t giving up. The bill would allow same-sex marriages to continue, but ban future ones and permit civil unions. The full House would vote in 2012.
We defeated this earlier in the year and we’re going to do so again. Courage Campaign and our members organized Camp Courage trainings throughout the state to mobilize the grassroots throughout the state with our friends at Granite State Equality. So we’ve got the infrastructure in place. That infrastructure turned out 540 people against the bill to just 40 in favor at the big public hearing on the bill. Public polling back in February showed a whopping 62% against repeal, and that number is only going to go up. If the New Hampshire House leadership wants to dig themselves in this hole, we’re going to be ready to fight back.
