Catholic Canucks took a step towards banning HPV vaccinations for girls who attend a Catholic
The ban could also prevent the health unit from counseling or giving advice on the vaccine to any student on board property.
A recent letter from the conference of bishops encourages Catholic boards to remember that the virus is sexually transmitted, and that sex is "appropriate only" through marriage.
This is only the latest move by Catholics in their attempt to remove safety measures from society on the grounds that such measures encourage risky behavior.
Other popular safety measures targeted by Catholics include: seat belts, air bags, spare tires, "caution: wet floor" signs, signal flares, bullet proof vests, bicycle helmets, child-proof pill bottles, snake bite kits, burglar alarms, karate, parachutes, and submission to Christ.
