Merck’s lucrative HPV vaccine is now being proposed as mandatory by twelve states for girls 11 years old and above. Yes, the word is mandatory. Remember that the culture of death is not a benign dictator: it becomes a tyrant as soon as it is able to enforce its will. Cynically, the whole premise of the culture of death is “freedom of choice,” but if Merck and the CDC have their way soon we will be bulldozing chemicals into little girls’ bodies for no other reason than that their parents’ generation has deprived them of a choice. Those who say that they don’t want to force their morality on others are now having others’ immorality forced upon them.
