Gardasil Vaccine? No Thanks!
When I first heard about the Gardasil vaccine, I had my doubts about the safety and efficacy of the treatment and have refused to allow my young girls to be guinea pigs. After reading this article I believe that I made the right decision. http://catholicexchange.com/2009/10/21/122823/ If you get a chance, read the full article. It is very informative. I quoted in full the last two paragraphs here, because they speak to what I innately felt was the reason for pushing this vaccine when I first heard and read about it.
“I (Steve) think that they see Gardasil as what one might call a ‘wedge’ drug. For them, the success of this public vaccination campaign has less to do with stopping cervical cancer, than it does with opening the door to other vaccination campaigns for other sexually transmitted diseases, and perhaps even including pregnancy itself. For if they can overcome the objections of parents and religious organizations to vaccinating pre-pubescent—and not sexually active—girls against one form of STD, then it will make it easier for them to embark on similar programs in the future.
After all, the proponents of sexual liberation are determined not to let mere disease—or even death—stand in the way of their pleasures. They believe that there must be technological solutions to the diseases that have arisen from their relentless promotion of promiscuity. After all, the alternative is too horrible to contemplate: They might have to learn to control their appetites. And they might have to teach abstinence.”
