I just read the article from your web site about the Centers for Disease Control considering a recommendation for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccine for 12 year old children.
I found this article at:
I don't understand this article. It quotes a Doctor who states that this vaccine should only be administered to 'high risk' patients. However, earlier in the article the author notes that 4 out of 5 sexually active teens are already infected. It appears that the doctor believes that it would be unethical to prevent their slow, painful deaths from cervical cancer by giving them this vaccine, since it would encourage them to have sex.
Is the purpose of the article to point out that the doctor is absolutely wrong in his understanding of the ethics of administering the vaccine universally?
