Parsing all the angles of the HPV vaccine is difficult, and yet succumbing to its mandated use by a government agency masks the deeper problem which leaves children prone to the harms of promiscuity. Fran Eaton has done the heavy lifting and gives air to an excellent dicussion here.
What most didn't understand is that this HPV vaccine mandate is part of a bigger problem -- a much bigger problem. A similar thing happened when Illinois decided to mandate chicken pox and Hepatitis B vaccines. Merck lobbied hard and proved to be very persuasive in the final decisions.
The American public cannot and should not be forced to help any drug company realize a good return on their R & D. It is their job to sell their products, not to force it on trusting souls who have been persuaded by a cooperative media that a health crisis must be diverted.
If this pattern is not stopped with this vaccine, it won't ever happen. The slope will have become too steep and slippery. There will be no place to stop, and we will have no choice but to force medication on our children and ourselves at the whim of any and all drug companies.
There is no doubt that the escalation of this cancer-causing virus has to be stopped. But it has to be stopped by education, persuasion, and connecting the dots between behaviour and consequences.
