Catholic school may ban HPV vaccine

A Catholic school in Canada may ban HPV vaccine.

Isn't that just brilliant. They would rather girls (and the women they will grow up to become) die or go through painful and expensive surgery and chemo rather than give them a vaccine that might protect them. HPV is one of those viruses that can be asymptomatic in the men that carry it, and still be deadly in the women who catch it. Even if they are abstinent until they get married, they could still catch it, and they could still die.

How much sense does this make?
