New Bill Makes HPV Vaccination Mandatory For Public School Students

It seems logic, reason, and moral decency are values that are very quickly disappearing from the realm of public education, if they ever really existed there at all.

Students in our modern age are being indoctrinated about the normalcy of sexual perversions like transgenderism and homosexuality, but the liberal lunacy doesn’t end there.

A new bill in the state of Florida has been introduced that will make it mandatory for public school students to receive an HPV vaccination.

First Coast News is reporting:

A bill introduced in the Florida legislature would make it mandatory for public school students to get vaccinated for human papillomavirus.

Senate Bill 1558 would require the HPV shot for all school children. Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington D.C. have similar mandates for the HPV vaccine, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

State Sen. José Javier Rodríguez, D-Miami, filed the bill on January 4.

The vaccine, now given as a series of two shots, is recommended for boys and girls ages 11 and 12, according to the Centers for Disease Control, to prevent against the infection that can cause a range of cancers, including cervical, anal, throat and neck, and vaginal.

Most people who become infected with HPV do not know they have it and can show no symptoms, according to the CDC, which states that the body’s immune system is usually capable of ridding the HPV infection naturally within two years.

Rates of vaccination for HPV have steadily increased in the past decade nationwide but Florida remains among states with some of the lowest rates, according to the CDC, while our state has one of the highest rates of cervical cancer.

Apparently teaching God’s design for sexuality — to wait until marriage — is no longer acceptable, even though this doesn’t even have to be taught from a Christian point of view. It’s scientifically proven that abstinence is the best choice.

The bill itself does contain an opt-out feature, which is one of the reasons it has gained more support from parents. Initially, the majority of parents were against the idea of forced vaccination, with only one in five supporting it. That increased once this opt-out provision was included.

At the end of the day, what kids need to be taught about sexuality is that there are real, long term consequences for your actions, especially those concerning sex, a gift created by God specifically for the marriage relationship. And this needs to be taught by parents not public school administrators.

Kids need to be taught to wait until marriage, that sex is something that binds two people together, even when it is not something done inside of an intimate relationship and that an abuse of sex is going to come with hefty consequences, diseases included.
