S.C. House upholds Haley veto on HPV vaccine

By Seanna Adcox


COLUMBIA -- The South Carolina House failed Tuesday to override Gov. Nikki Haley’s veto of a bill intended to provide information on and access to a free vaccine that prevents a sexually transmitted, cancer-causing virus.

The House’s 54-47 vote killed the bill, which called for informational brochures on the vaccine for human papillomavirus, known as HPV, to be provided to parents of sixth-graders. Parents could choose to have their seventh-graders receive the vaccine. The bill specifies those provisions depend on funding.

A two-thirds majority was needed for the override.

The socially conservative Republican governor opposed the bill on several fronts. She called it a suspended unfunded mandate, while arguing it’s unnecessary.

“It does not make or keep any child from having that vaccine,” she said Tuesday. “It does nothing.”

She said the important issue needs to be discussed by parents, their children and their doctor, without involving the government. Health agencies don’t need to tell parents what to do, she said.
