One more reason why religious fundamentalists should be butt-fucked for eternity with the business end of pineapples
Every year, about 500,000 women throughout the world develop cervical cancer. In the United States alone, the disease kills about 3,700 women annually. This year, scientists developed a vaccine against human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted disease that is the primary cause of cervical cancer. The vaccine produced 100% immunity 6,000 women who received it. As soon as the vaccine is licensed, some health officials say, it should be administered to all girls at age 12.
But the Family Research Council and other social conservative groups vowed to fight that plan, even though it could virtually eliminate cervical cancer. Vaccinating girls against a sexually transmitted disease, they say, would reduce their incentive to abstain from premarital sex.
