Back in January we told you about Senate Bill 71 that was being introduced to the 2018 General Assembly session. It was a bill that would require abstinence education be included in sex education in Kentucky’s public schools. The inclusion of such information is important because of the push by Planned Parenthood to implement their Comprehensive Sex Education curriculum in public schools across America.
Sen. Stephen Meredith of Leitchfield worked to keep the bill alive in the House and Senate though he faced tough opposition from the ACLU and withstood personal attacks from the group Louisville Sex Education Now.
In early April, the common-sense legislation overwhelmingly passed the House and Senate. Senator Stephen Meredith is a good example of the kind of leader that is needed in Frankfort. We thank him for his hard work and determination.
