The article reports on a statement by New Mexico Senatorial candidate Heather Wilson that the Student Non-Discrimination Act is so broad that it would punish children and prohibit the expression of opinions regarding homosexuality in schools. Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese said Wilson's remarks show how unaware she is about the realities that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender kids face in school. Solmonese said that lawmakers have a moral obligation to protect the children.
