The Campaign For DA


The Heck With All This Super Bowl Talk

Let's talk about genital warts. Gov. Rick Perry on Friday issued an executive order calling for all girls entering sixth grade in Texas, starting in September 2008, to receive a vaccine against a sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer. While Texas parents will be allowed to opt out of having their daughters get the vaccine, conservative groups are protesting. I can't believe it, but Perry deserves credit on this one. And I think I'll label those against the idea as "Pro-Cervical Cancer."
