Assembly woman Sally Lieber, D-Mountain View, California., recently
introduced legislation that would require girls to be immunized against
HPV before they enter the sixth grade.
The Federal Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention recommends that parents get the vaccine
for their daughters, ideally when they're age 11 and 12. The proposal
to mandate vaccination in California, AB16, is giving young girls the
wrong message, because HPV is transmitted only through sexual contact.
Not all 11 and 12 year old girls have sexual contact, yet they will be
‘forced’ to be vaccinated and suffer the short and long-term side
effects. Reported short-term side effects include:
• Pain, swelling, itching and redness at the injection site
• Difficulty breathing
The vaccine has not been tested long enough to determine long-term side effects, which could include:
• Contracting HPV
• Emotional conflict—guilt/shame/humiliation as a result of being led
to believe sex beginning at 11 or 12 is healthy as long as one has the
CA legislates required vaccination for HPV, where will this end? As
Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, R-Irvine stated regarding legalizing banning
spanking of children "Where do you stop?" He said he agrees children
younger than 3 should not be spanked but has no desire to make it the
law. "At what point are we going to say we should pass a bill that
every parent has to read a minimum of 30 minutes every night to their
child? This is right along those same lines."
legislating every 11 - 12 year-old girl must be vaccinated for HPV is a
different matter entirely. Legislating the ban of hitting children
a.k.a. abuse of children affords them the opportunity to enjoy the same
protection afforded to all adults. Legislating every girl age 11 – 12
be vaccinated for HPV gives a message that sex is a rite to passage at
that age. Is that the message we want to legislate?
A law to require anyone to be vaccinated for anything serves two purposes.
• Big business and government taking more and more control of the people.
• Creating a lucrative income for doctors, pharmacies and drug manufacturers.
is merely the body crying for support to do the job it is designed to

nutrition, vitamins and mineral supplements and peace of mind. Your
body needs nothing more.

Editor's note: Those who count on Merck's
HPV vaccine to prevent cervical cancer need to know that they have many other
greater risks to worry about. Their girls/women have at least five times
higher risk of dying in a traffic accident than cervical cancer. They have at
least ten times higher risk of dying from breast cancer than from cervical
They have 100 times higher
risk of dying from incidents related to drugs and doctors. Trans fat may kill 50,000 women a year. Compared to all
these and other risks, 3,500 deaths of cervical cancer per year in the whole country is nothing. That does not
mean you should not take this disease seriously.
The point is that parents need to train their
girls to follow a healthy lifestyle including abstinence and practicing safe
sex if they could not control themselves.
In doing so, their girls can reduce drastically
the overall risk of death from incidents and all diseases including cervical cancer.
With regard to the HPV vaccine, there are basically two issues: the long
term efficacy and safety of the vaccine and the parents’ right to making their
medical decisions for their children. With the long term efficacy and
safety uncertain, inoculating of your girls with this anti cervical cancer
vaccine may potentially cause more harm than good. Even if the vaccine
proves effective and safe for 100 years and even if 100 percent of parents
agree to have their daughters inoculated with this cervical cancer vaccine, it
still should leave the decision to the parents.
