Rep. Lowery (left) and Jerry Cox (right) visit following passage of H.B. 1592 in the Senate Education Committee.

On Wednesday the Senate Education Committee passed H.B. 1592.

This good bill by Rep. Mark Lowery (R – Maumelle) prohibits public schools in Arkansas from engaging in transactions with abortion providers.

The measure is similar to H.B. 1589 that recently passed into law.

We have written many times about Planned Parenthood’s efforts to gain access to public school students in Arkansas.

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 our state’s public schools.

H.B. 1592 now goes to the entire Arkansas Senate for consideration.
