Kan. Students Lobby Against Sex Education Bills
February 18, 2014
Students from the University of Kansas, Emporia State University and Wichita State University were lobbying Monday to encourage legislators to reject the changes, arguing they would ignore the wishes of local communities. The students are members of campus Choice USA, a national abortion-rights organization that speaks out on reproductive rights issues.
The students lobby in Topeka each session and chose the sex education bill as their focus this year.
“We feel like it’s a legislative overreach to put a statewide mandate on this,” said Paul Brink, a Wichita State senior majoring in economics and political science.
