HPV vaccine mandate being pushed despite warnings

For the third year in a row, Kentucky State Rep. David Watkins (D-Owensboro) is pushing a bill that would force 9- to 11-year-old girls to receive the HPV vaccine in order to attend school. The general consensus of the medical community including the CDC, the American College of Pediatricians, and the American Academy of Family Physicians is to oppose a mandate, but apparently Rep. Watkins thinks he knows better.

Watch the video where David Edmunds testifies and Rep. Tom Burch (D-Louisville) can be seen suppressing the truth of the medical community with his committee shenanigans.

The HPV vaccine is a solution for our immoral decisions. It's one more reason for us to say it's okay to have premature sex at 15 with multiple partners and there's no guarantee that it will suppress the virus. No vaccine is guaranteed. I am completely opposed to government telling me what my child needs at 9 years old? Holy cow...
