FORBIDDEN VACCINE Ever year, about 500,000 women throughout the world develop cervical cancer. In the United States alone, the disease kills about 3,700 women annually. This year, scientists developed a vaccine against human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted disease that is the primary cause of cervical cancer. The vaccine produced 100 percent immunity in the 6,000 women who received it as part of a multinational trial. As soon as the vaccine is licensed, some health officials say, it should be administered to all girls at age 12. But the Family Research Council and other social conservative groups vowed to fight that plan, even though it could virtually eliminate cervical cancer. Vaccinating girls against a sexually transmitted disease, they say, would reduce their incentive to abstain from premarital sex. (Falk, William. While You Were Sleeping. New York Times.

al comentar con varias personas esto, que haya gente tan estúpida que piense que el sexo premarital es un mal mucho peor que el cancer, recibí básicamente la misma respuesta: ¿por qué te extraña? ya sabes que hay gente loca en este planeta. no me extraña, me enoja. y temo el día que ya no me enoje porque será el día que ya no me importe. el día que me quede apática y vencida.
