As if I needed another reminders why the United States has issues…
Here in Australia, our federal government (which is conservative, mind you) has recently introduced a national vaccination program for Gardasil, a vaccine against the human papillomavirus (HPV) which is one of the causes of cervical cancer.
Plans to vaccinate young girls against the sexually-transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer have been blocked in several US states by conservative groups, who say that doing so would encourage promiscuity.
Because of what?! I don’t fucking believe it.
