Liberal bloggers are up in arms that I suggested state Sen. Debbie Halvorson help stop the spread of the sexually transmitted disease HPV, which can progress to cervical cancer, by openly discussing the most likely behavior that causes it, pre- and extra-marital sex.
Instead, Halvorson has proposed a government-mandated series of the most expensive vaccinations in history ($360 for three) for all 11- and 12-year-old IL girls, even though the vaccine has a known life expectancy of only four years and only safeguards against 4 of over 100 HPV strains and 70% of cervical cancers.
Why? Halvorson is a director in a group called Women in Government, which is pushing mandated HPV vaccines across the U. S. Why? WiG receives funding (it won't say how much, so it must be a lot) from Merck, currently the sole FDA-approved manufacturer of the HPV vaccine.
If there is no quid pro quo, why doesn't WiG list even ONCE on its website the only real way to prevent HPV and cervical cancer: abstinence? Instead it says, "Cervical cancer is highly preventable - regular screening is key." Really, that's how you prevent it?
Back to those liberal bloggers. Their loud demand for ignorance can be interpreted only one of two ways. Either they hold a paternalistic view of women as being too weak to handle the truth or an exploitive view of women who should remain sex objects no matter the cost to their health. There is no other explanation for hysterical protests to shut up about the cause of HPV.
Do we gloss over any other known destructive behaviors, like smoking, alcohol, or drug use? No, because those are politically correct to address. We just can't address sexually destructive behaviors.
Why? Because sexually destructive behaviors are important financial and ideological cornerstones of liberalism. The abortion industry and homosexual lobby both funnel huge amounts of money to liberals, and both push the same agenda: complete sexual autonomy with no consequences.
