Our individual Right of Conscience is enshrined in Article 4 of the NH Constitution, stating: [Rights of Conscience Unalienable.] Among the natural rights, some are, in their very nature unalienable, because no equivalent can be given or received for them. Of this kind are the Rights of Conscience.
“Unalienable” = NO ONE can take it away.

According to the bill’s sponsor, Timothy Lang, the bill does take into account private business owners needs by including a “reasonable accommodation” clause. If the employee and employer cannot come to some arrangement, you can get fired.
