A measure filed at the Arkansas Legislature on Thursday would help keep pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood out of Arkansas’ public schools.

S.B. 466 by Sen. Jim Dotson (R – Bentonville) and Rep. Sonia Barker (R – Smackover) says that a public school or open-enrollment public charter school shall not knowingly enter into any type of transaction with an individual or entity that offers or provides abortion referrals.

Current law prohibits schools from contracting with abortion providers, but it does not address organizations that refer women to abortionists.

Now that abortion is generally prohibited in Arkansas except to save the life of the mother, pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood are referring women to abortion providers in other states.

In the past, Planned Parenthood has been very active in Arkansas’ public schools, and lawmakers have adopted legislation to keep them out of the classroom.

S.B. 466 will help continue to keep pro-abortion organizations like Planned Parenthood away from Arkansas’ public school students.
