High school's planned health center sparks debate
Aug. 18, 2017
READING, Pa. (AP) — Several groups gathered in protest and in support of a proposed health resource center managed by Planned Parenthood at a Pennsylvania high school.
Reading Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/2uXtnXZ ) about 40 people gathered outside a Reading School District administration building Wednesday.
The proposed center would be located at Reading High School with Planned Parenthood Keystone managing daily operations.
Opponents of the center say they do not want Planned Parenthood staff interacting with students. Supporters say the center will help young people make informed decisions about their own reproductive health.
The center would be funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
Reading School board members have delayed voting on the proposal since it was introduced in May. A vote is now scheduled for next week.
