CONCORD, New Hampshire, March 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — New Hampshire has become the latest battleground over transgender bathrooms.
Legislation was introduced in the state House of Representatives in January that would add “gender (self) identity” to the state’s anti-discrimination laws (HB-478).
The bill took a significant step forward at a Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee public hearing last week, where supporters packed the room with LGBTQ activists.
Supporters were well prepared at the hearing, lining up self-described transgender adults to testify and using children as well to speak in favor of the bill. One Cornerstone Policy Research attendee estimated supporters outnumbered opponents 30 to 1.
