College Students Lobby Against Sex Education Bills

Wichita Eagle

January 17, 2014

College students from around the state came to the Capitol to lobby against the bills on Monday as part of a coordinated effort organized by Choice USA, a pro-choice organization.

Students can currently choose to opt out of sex education, said Sydney Fish, a Wichita State University student, but Pilcher-Cook’s bill flips that equation on its head.

“Basing an entire bill that would control every district in the state on one incident – we’re basically looking at going from an opt-out system of sex education, which is organized by districts, to an opt-in,” Fish said.
