STD SHOTS FOR LITTLE GIRLS?
DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT
Can you believe the Texas governor signed that executive order requiring girls going in to sixth grade to get a vaccination against Human Papilloma Virus?
Yes, HPV is a rampant sexually-transmitted disease that can cause cancer of the cervix, but the average age of a woman with cervical cancer is 48 -- and the drug company that made the vaccine admits that it's not proven that it even prevents transmission. Plus, there are all kinds of risks with the vaccine. Here's a story:
More than anything, it's the outrageous "we know better than you do" attitude that puts the schools in authority over the parents in terms of protecting their children's health. At our house with our four girls, there was no question that they would choose to be sexually chaste until marriage. That's the way it was for El Magnifico and me; that's the way our girls are.
I would hope that most parents are teaching their children not to be promiscuous so that they wouldn't need to be protected against the things that go wrong if you are. I mean, do you know anybody -- ANYBODY? -- who is teaching their child to yeah, go ahead, get out there and go crazy and debauch yourself?!?!?
Here's hoping the Texas citizens conk their governor over the head with a wet petunia and get him to rescind that ridiculous E.O., post haste.
