I killed my Tuesday essay questions in part because I hated trying to come up with a new question, but more because few people answered them.
However, this headline looked interesting: Michigan bill proposes cancer vaccination.
The bill would require girls in Michigan who enter sixth grade to receive a cervical cancer vaccine, which was approved by the FDA last June. This vaccine provides some protection against the Human Papilloma Virus.
Proponents like this bill in part because it can help save lives by helping prevent cancer.
Opponents don't like the bill in part because they view it as encouraging underage sex - the message that underage sex is OK.
I'll weigh in on this on an answer of my own later on, but I wanted to know what you all thought about this? Good? Bad? Somewhere in between?
