Calgary Catholics Refuse to be Bullied

Calgary Catholic School Board refuses to be bullied by the Province into providing onsite HPV (Gardasil) vaccine to Catholic schoolgirls. Whole story here.

But Calgary Catholic school chair Mary Martin said it’s a matter of faith, and everything at the board is taught through that lens.
“The vaccine itself is a parental choice,” she said. “The province, certainly Calgary Catholic and the bishops, recognize the parents as the first and best educators of their kids. “We want to leave that choice firmly . . . making it a parental decision.”

Hat tip to The Refusers.
