Texas GOP to fight against life saving vaccine

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Who would have guessed that the decision by Texas (Republican) governor Perry would cause such a commotion? Any normal person would find the vaccination and its availability to Texas girls to be beneficial since it is a vaccine against cervical cancer, but as with just about everything, the Republicans want to make this about sex because they are obsessed with sex. The vaccine is about life and stopping a deadly virus:

Perry defended his decision, saying his fellow conservatives were wrong to worry that mandating the vaccine will trample parents' rights and promote premarital sex.

"Providing the HPV vaccine doesn't promote sexual promiscuity any more than providing the Hepatitis B vaccine promotes drug use," Perry said in a statement. "If the medical community developed a vaccine for lung cancer, would the same critics oppose it claiming it would encourage smoking?"
