This resolution proposes a constitutional amendment in New Hampshire that would establish parents' fundamental right to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their minor children. The amendment specifies that the state or any political subdivision cannot infringe on these rights unless it can demonstrate a compelling governmental interest that is of the highest order and not otherwise served. The amendment also clarifies that it does not apply to parental actions or decisions that would harm or end the life of a child. If approved by 2/3 of the voters, the amendment would become effective upon the governor's proclamation. Currently, the constitution in New Hampshire does not address the rights of parents of minor children.
