Panel Unanimously reccommends Cervical Cancer Vaccine.
"A federal vaccine advisory panel voted unanimously yesterday to recommend that all girls and women ages 11 to 26 receive a new vaccine that prevents most cases of cervical cancer.
The vote all but commits the federal government to spend as much as $2 billion alone on a program to buy the vaccine for the nation's poorest girls from 11 to 18."
Now for a little dose of unreason:
"<b>You can't catch the virus</b>, you have to go out and get it with sexual behavior," said Linda Klepacki of Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian group based in Colorado Springs. "We can prevent it by having the best public health method, and that's not having sex before marriage.""
Riiight, and you can't have a car accident, you have to go out and drive recklessly.
Either way, a seat belt is a very good idea.
This vaccine would only prevent 3700 deaths a year, big deal, it's not like every life is precious or anything.
