Sen. Ballinger presents H.B. 1592 on the floor of the Senate.

On Monday the Arkansas Senate 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. It previously passed the Arkansas House of Representatives.

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.

The bill now goes to the governor to become law. Below is a breakdown of the vote on H.B. 1592.
