Somehow, elected representatives in both the U.S. and the Canadian federal governments have gotten it into their heads that every young girl at the age of 14 must be forced to receive a newly developped and expensive vaccine to protect her from the sexually transmitted and quite common Human Papilloma Virus that she migh contract in case she might become sexually active and might not practice protected sex with someone who might be capable of infecting her and this rather common HPV might go undetected in which case it might develop into cancer 30 years down the road. This is all for her own good, of course.
Never mind all the presumptions, the costs, and the fact that this vaccine has not yet been adequately tested nor monitored on willing recipients. Once again, a well-paid pharmaceutical lobbyist has convinced some overpaid government technocrats that this makes sense. Well, we know it makes sense for the pharmaceutical company that has a guaranteed vaccine sale at $300+ for every girl in the country, but does it make sense for us as a society?
