Candidate, Korin Abdelsayed
Halton Catholic District School Board, ON
Electoral District: Milton
At an all-candidates meeting, Abdelsayed expressed opposition to the wording of the wonderful and much-needed pro-life policy that had been passed by the existing Board of Trustees. She has repeated her opposition in a public forum since the candidates debate.
The Sanctity of Life policy, as passed, prohibits HCDSB schools from donating to charities who either directly or indirectly promote the evils of abortion, euthanasia, the destruction of embryonic human beings, contraception, and sterilization - all practices which are condemned by Roman Catholic doctrinal teaching as intrinsically evil.
At the public meeting, Abdelsayed suggested that the only way she would be willing to vote for such a policy is if the wording were changed to continue to allow fundraising for organizations that promote abortion and other assaults on human life, when those assaults are only done "indirectly".
In CLC's opinion, Catholic institutions have a moral, ethical and religious obligation to avoid cooperating with evil, whether directly or indirectly.
To remove the word "indirectly" from the Sanctity of Life policy, as Abdelsayed suggested, would open a loophole big enough to drive a Mack truck through, and allow virtually any charity that publicly - even aggressively - promotes abortion, euthanasia, etc, to continue receiving Catholic funds. Deleting the word "indirectly" renders the policy practically useless with respect to having any ability whatsoever to uphold Catholic teaching, or to "hinder" sin (as compelled by Section 1868 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church).

Here are the answers for the questionnaire as provided by Korin Abdelsayed on September 11, 2018.
|Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is an infection that is transmitted through sex. Will you therefore oppose HPV vaccination in schools because it sends the message to students, teachers and parents that obedience to Church teaching on abstinence before marriage is neither expected nor necessary?||No|
|Will you work to ensure that educational materials that enter the premises of Catholic schools (e.g., library resources, curriculum texts, awareness campaigns, flyers) and all approved school activities are consistent with and do not undermine the morality and teachings of the Church?||Yes|
|Will you work to ensure that Catholic schools do not invite guest speakers who have publicly expressed positions that contradict the morality and teaching of the Church, no matter how great their achievements in politics, business, sports, science or the arts?||Yes|
|Will you personally uphold and work toward the public promotion of total fidelity to the faith and moral teachings of the Catholic Church? (Current examples include the illicitness of abortion, contraception and homosexual practice)||Yes|
|Will you actively promote and defend the teaching of Catholic doctrine, the importance of prayer and a regular sacramental life?||Yes|
|Will you work against any attempt to expand the sex-ed program in the Catholic Schools which is contrary to Church teaching, such as the one which included oral sex, masturbation and homosexuality, recently offered by the Ministry?||Yes|
|Will you work to ensure that your Catholic school board enacts a policy requiring all agents and employees of the board to uphold the rights of custodial parents to direct and control the education of, and any medical treatment provided to, their dependent children attending its schools?||Yes|
|Are there any circumstances under which you believe a woman should have access to abortion*? (*Note: a surgical or medical intervention designed to prevent the death of the mother but which results in the unintended and undesired death of the pre-born child, is not an abortion)||No|
