The head of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri is criticizing Kansas legislation that would bar abortion providers from having any relationship with public schools.
President and CEO Peter Brownlie said Thursday his chapter offers materials and instructors for sex education classes to Kansas public schools if they ask.
Kansans for Life Executive Director Mary Kay Culp says parents shouldn't have to worry about their children getting sex education instruction from a group that she considers to promote abortion.
The bill aimed at keeping abortion providers out of schools was approved Thursday by the House Federal and State Affairs Committee.
The measure bars abortion providers from furnishing materials for school sex education classes. It also says that school employees and contractors providing educational services cannot be involved in abortions.
