Can anyone direct me to the right source to find out if it is possible to use a religious exemption for the catholic schools in Philadelphia, PA? I can only seem to find information about public schools online and my daughter will be attending catholic school in a few years and she is not, and will not, be vaccinated. I want to be ahead of the game with any issues!
Thanks!

Search for "catholic" in the not vaxing group.

Letter From Rome in Defense of Parental Rights on Vaccines

http://www.cogforlife.org/barreiro.htm

Some exerpts:
Quote:
...expelled from a Catholic educational institution for reasons of non-conformity to a diocesan policy of denying State-allowed religious exemptions... This is a violation of the Catholic Church’s centuries-old teaching on the supremacy of the Moral Conscience and the right of parents to preside over the total wellbeing of their children.

Pending a final judgment on this issue the parental right of conscience is to be considered the binding authority in this matter and the child should not be penalized for non-conformity to a policy which is not defined as Church doctrine or practice.93w

I don't think a "final judgment" has been issued yet.

If they accept federal funding, they have to accept your exemption (provided your state accepts religious exemptions). My kids go to Catholic school and they do accept the waivers.

I also read somewhere that if you are Catholic, you can interpret certain passages in your own personal way to imply that vaccines are against Catholic values / beliefs. I'm not Catholic, so I can just sign the exemption and they can't really ask any questions.
