College Students Lobby Against Sex Education Bills
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.
