I'd love to see a prostate or testicular cancer vaccine then watch to see how many of these men, legislators and dads would line up to have an unproven vaccine that may or may not stop them from developing cancer all with unknown long term effects.
I listen to the bombardment of commercials pushing this idiotic cervical cancer vaccine and hear that it "may" help prevent cervical cancer and that it "WON'T" prevent all kinds. MAY is the biggest argument against this insanity and it's in their OWN commercial.I stand by my argument because this does nothing but benefit Merck who is spending millions promoting a vaccine that "MAY" help prevent SOME cancers. This is MY body and my daughter's and granddaughter's bodies. We do not belong to the government nor do we ask the government for anything regarding health care. They have NO right to force something like this on us against our will. If this thing passes in more states it's just a matter of time before we have to submit to anything and everything they mandate regarding OUR God given bodies. A yearly Pap is a smart thing to do but many women put it off. I used to do this myself. However I'd be incensed if the government mandated it. It's MY body, MY choice. Before my hysterectomy I had a very smart doctor who wouldn't refill my prescriptions unless I got my exam. That was between me and my doctor--I had the choice to find another. If the government got involved I'd have NO choices.I know no one personally (including a doctor friend whose daughter will NOT be receiving the vaccine due to the reasons I've stated) who believes in this vaccine. It hasn't been proven as said in their by their OWN commercials. This is just more proof of what lobbying money can get you--a governor and apparently state legislators in your back pocket.
This is a very bad law. It stinks of payoff's to high heaven and I shudder in disbelief.
I say again--I'd love to see a prostate or testicular cancer vaccine then watch to see how many of these men, legislators and dads would line up to have an unproven vaccine that may or may not stop them from developing cancer all with unknown long term effects......
