On Monday the Arkansas Senate passed H.B. 1592., legislation that would block the Planned Parenthood abortion business from teaching kids sex education in public schools. With the bill now having been approved by both chambers of the legislature it goes to Governor Asa Hutchinson.

As AP reports:

The Senate voted 27-5 for the measure prohibiting public schools from entering into any transaction with individuals or entities that perform, induce or provide abortions.

“If the entity does that, I think the state of Arkansas has no business in any form…contracting with them to do anything,” said Republican Sen. Bob Ballinger, a sponsor of the measure.

The Arkansas Family Council supports the bill and told that Planned Parenthood has a history of pushing is pro-abortion sex ed agenda on Arkansas children.

“This good bill by Rep. Mark Lowery (R – Maumelle) prohibits public schools in Arkansas from engaging in transactions with abortion providers. It previously passed the Arkansas House of Representatives,” it said.

“In March, Family Council obtained nearly 1,400 pages of documents that revealed how Planned Parenthood has worked in public schools in Pulaski County for several years. H.B. 1592 will help make sure Planned Parenthood and other abortionists don’t access Arkansas’ public schools.”
