More HPV Flying Around

This HPV vaccine debate is really heating up - Jeff Crilley of Fox 4 is even on the story!!!! Jeff Crilley!!! And I learned Sen. Jane Nelson is against the executive order so God must be in favor of the vaccine. But Gov. Perry might want to get a spokesperson who looks old enough to actually get the vaccine without parental consent.

Here's something Russ Martin brought up on his show earlier this evening that I tend to agree with.....Anyone else think Perry might be taking some sort of kick pack or campaign contribution from the vaccine manufacturer in order to get him to push this so hard? It makes sense, considering that in Texas we teach "abstinence only" sex education in our public schools.

The other side of this is....Perry went about the whole damn thing in the wrong fashion. If he had been a bit more quiet about it and pushed it through the legislature and have it added on to the list of required vaccines for public school admission it would have gone a lot more smoothly. Why does it have to be a sex issue? I agree with requiring it because too many parents have blinders on as to their daughters sex lives.

I'll give you an extreme example of this to prove my point that y'all may not want to hear about your dear ole Bigcat: I'm 28 and my fiancee is 26 and her mother still doesn't think her daughter is having sex. Hee hee...if she only knew!!!!!! L8ers! HAHA!!

Parents should not give consent for their daughters to have the vaccine, no matter what Governor Perry executive orders dictate! Parents should educate their daughters. Be honest with them. Tell them boys have warts growing all over their little peanuts and if they have sex they will get pregnant and when they turn 50 they will die of cancer!

Talk to your kids about warts, smoking and drugs! Start early and be honest. Avoid pregnancy, lung cancer, going to jail and getting cervical cancer!

Change the behavior and save all the money!

Texas leads the nation in high school drop outs, teacher pay and genital warts! And the warts get Governor Perry's attention or is it what is in it for him...like a campaign contribution!

mzchief said...

To bigcatdaddy...
Whoa dude! YOU are ENGAGED!!! So WHO is going to be ahhhh...uhhhh..."sooo doing" the hotties posted on Barry's Blog?

Congrats on the nuptials.

Perhaps your FUTURE mother-in-law realizes it is NONE of her business if her 26 year old ADULT daughter is boning a 28 year old ADULT fiance and is NOT even going to ACKNOWLEDGE the situation. Maybe she has MORE class and decorum than that for which you give her credit.

To c4u...
If the word "boning" is too crass just PRETEND I said "making sexy time with"...

Good advice 7:09 - unfortunately not all parents are gonna do as you suggest and even if they do, kids are still going to have sex.

Oh, lets send Perry a message to have his pharmacy buddies invent a mandatory anti arousal pill.

That sounds a whole lot more reasonable to me.

I'm just sorry Molly Ivins isn't around to toss this one around.

I would take warts from the spokes woman. She maybe the finest babe posted on this site ever.

I agree with 9:36. I think we need to see some more pics of this "spokeswoman" so that we can really, intensely evaluate the Governor's, er, position on this issue.

Unfortunately, a Google image search turns up zip. Not that I searched. No.

I, personally, don't see how there's another side to this. There are mandatory vaccines for other diseases that some crazy people choose not to give their kids because they think the Government is trying to control them. This is in the child's best interests, and doesn't encourage sexual behavior in any way. It stops cervical cancer, people!

Give the vaccine!!!!!You can tell your children not to have sex all you want too. You can tell them what can happen and how it can mess up their lives and they will know but that doesnt mean that they will make the right choice when it comes time to make it. This is something that can help prevent cancer how is it any different than getting a chicken pox shot or the MMR or any of the many other shots that we give our children to keep them from getting sick?

moma247 said...

I have yet to take a stance on this issue, but there are some things I feel are being overlooked on the subject. This vaccine will not prevent all types of cervical cancer, nor will it prevent a girl from contracting all forms of HPV. It also cannot be compared to other madatory vaccines currently given. These other diseases are spread through general contact, so it is understandable to require them. However, unless boning (as mzcheif says) someone becomes the new hand shake, the HPV vaccine doesn't fall in the same category.

If the government starts making this mandatory, when are they going to make having to wear a condom during sex a law as well?

9:33 -- [sigh]. Still? STILL people are making this tired old joke? Gaaah.

I don't see any downside of this vaccine. If it prevents one case of cervical cancer or HPV then it is well worth making it mandatory. No matter how much parenting you do all you can hope for is your children will make a rational decision when the time comes. That doesn't mean they will not have sexual conduct with someone or that they won't catch HPV while using condoms. I think Perry is on the right proactive tract.

I heard it comes in 3 shots and it adds up to $360????? It is supposedly covered by insurance if you have it but what about those that are uninsured?

June FN Cleaver said...

My "sources" tell me that the maker of the vaccine is Mereck Pharmaceuticals and the representative that apparently introduced the bill is/was allegedly a spokesman for Mereck. Aside from that, do expect my daughter to abstain? Yes. Will I choose to have her vaccinated? Yes. Do I want some legislator who is probably getting kickbacks from Big Pharma making it mandatory? No!!!!

I assure you it will be less expensive for uninsured individuals. A friend told me not to use my insurance the next time I go to the doctor, just to see how much the visit is. I did and, it was less. Unbelievable. You are charged more to have insurance.
