"...one of the most baffling recent US government actions has been to ban the addition of a newly-discovered prevention for cervical cancer, to the vaccinations given to every young girl, because it might encourage future sexual promiscuity." http://www.unknowncountry.com/news/?id=5627 "Scientists now know that cervical cancer is caused by a sexually transmitted disease called HPV, which also causes herpes. Early sexual experimentation can lead to contracting the disease, which leads to cancer later in life. Scientists have now developed a vaccination for HPV. If all young, pre- pubescent girls were given this vaccine, the scourge of cervical cancer would end. So why isn't this being added to the list of vaccinations that every young girl gets? Because the FDA, under control of the Bush administration, thinks this would lead to too much sexual experimentation and they want to make abstinence the cornerstone of their sexual policyâ€”both here and abroadâ€”despite the fact that any family that agrees with this could simply not have their daughter vaccinated, since cancer is not a transmittable disease, like mumps or measles." http://www.unknowncountry.com/news/?id=5171 In the March 13, 2006 issue of The New Yorker, Michael Specter quotes medical researcher David Baltimore as saying, "I never thought that now, in the 21st century, we could have a debate about what to do with a vaccine that prevents cancerâ€¦What moral precepts allow us to think that the risk of death is a price worth paying to encourage abstinence as the only approach to sex?" http://www.newyorker.com/online/content/articles/060313on_onlineonly01 So George is using his twisted version of Christianity as an excuse for refusing medical care to people who he thinks MIGHT engage in sexual activities of which he doesn't approve. I know there aren't a lot of women on this site, but even the men here may have women in their lives that they care about: Mothers, girlfriends, wives, or even friends. Where is the outrage? We have a way to prevent a cancer that is killing thousands of women and George Bush won't let the FDA let it be released for public use because of his religious beliefs. This is the same George Bush that has reinstated torture, which apparently doesn't conflict with his religious beliefs.
