Concord, New Hampshire: New Hampshire voters will not get to decide on marriage or personhood ballot measures in 2010, as the New Hampshire House of Representatives killed three bills relating to the issues on the same day, February 17, 2010. According to reports, the House voted 210-109 to drop a bill that would have repealed a law passed six weeks ago legalizing gay marriage. The other bill, defeated by a vote of 201-135, would have asked voters whether or not to define marriage as between one man and one woman.[1]

In another defeating vote, this one 219 to 122, the House rejected a bill that would have added the phrase "unborn child" to a state law that provides the definition of another person in relation to "first and second degree murder, manslaughter, and negligent homicide."[2]
