A wave of trumped-up public protests persuaded New Hampshire state legislators to reject a pro-transgender bill.
“The number of people who have written stating that this bill essentially offers their children up to sexual predators is out running by five to one the number of emails” supporting the bill, said Rep. Jess Edwards (R).
“State representatives were under intense pressure [from transgender activists and progressives] to ignore the effect the legislation could have on the safety, privacy and religious liberty rights of New Hampshire residents,” said Cornerstone, a New Hampshire-based pro-family advocacy group. “Unquestionably, Speaker of the House Shawn [Shawn] Jasper and the House leadership team played a role in preventing the Bathroom Bill from going forward,” the backward thinking group said.
H.B. 478, which was intended to prohibit “discrimination based on gender identity,” was tabled by a vote of 187-179 amid intense controversy within the state.
