    Basically he wanted to force all girls going into the 6th grade to get an injection. The government forcing Gardasil onto your teenaged daughters....

    Feminist Daily News 2/5/2007: Texas Becomes First State to Require HPV Vaccine

    Sometimes it's a good idea in the diseases are easily communicable such as chicken pox etc... Gardasil is for STDs... Not so easily transmitted.

    I wonder how the GOP base and tea partiers will react when they see Perry up-close.

    Tea Party does not support Perry. I'm in Tejas and I can't find anyone who supports Perry. But, good job on the timely reporting there :razz:

    Wait, I thought conservatives wanted the government OUT of their personal business!

    This doesn't gel with that mantra at all! :confused:

    Apparently when a Republican (Perry is currently a republican...stay tuned, it could change at any moment) wants to force you to allow a doctor to give a shot to your pre-pubescent daughter to prevent the spread of STDs, its okay.

    It's a good thing Obamacare will pay for these government mandated inoculations now. You'll save a little money while the government is forcing the medical procedure on your little girl.

    I wonder why nobody else has commented on this? It seems over the top imo.

    Wow... I'm a liberal and I support Rick Perry on this. Gardasil helps prevent Cervical Cancer and 70% of vaginal cancer cases and up to 50% of vulvar cancer cases. Not to mention the Genital Warts thing....

    But to MAKE someone get a shot, without a choice? Seems a bit Totalitarian to me.

    i don't know... if i had a daughter, she'd absolutely have the shots. but something seems odd... the rabid right usually doesn't want girls to get these shots because they think women should die from cervical cancer if they have sex.

    So what you are saying is... Why should I have to pay for $10 shot when they should have the option of a 50-70% more chance of terrible cancers that I may have to pay for later?

    Funny.. when I was a kid, we all stood in line for our inoculations and no one said a word about it. As a result... Polio has been virtually eliminated.. along with smallpox and the like.

    Yeah... fuck Infection Control... we want choice.
