Scotland’s Catholic Leaders Block ‘Safe Sex’ Education

leave a comment »

Thirty thousand Scottish school age girls will be innoculated for cervical cancer without receiving sexual education about safe sex in a compromise between Scotland’s health care officials and the Catholic Church.

12 and 13-year-old girls at all schools in the country will start receiving the jab in a bid to cut deaths from cervical cancer caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), which can be passed on during sex.

The Catholic Church originally raised objections to the jab on the grounds it could encourage promiscuity, but has made a U-turn after reaching an agreement with health and education bosses.

The deal means girls getting the HPV jab will not receive any accompanying advice on the need to use condoms to protect themselves from other sexually transmitted diseases.

Cardinal Keith O’Brien raised concern that the pre-teens girls would receive mixed signals that they were being given a vaccine to allow them to have ‘safe sex.’

Do children get educational information about all the other vaccines required to keep them healthy? Yes, provide the medical information to the parents and allow the parents to reveal to their daughter what they want their child to learn.

In an increasingly Catholic country, Scotland’s secular socialists don’t want to innoculate the next generation from immature sexual decisions but force them to think about sex at younger ages.
