Ideology won't prevent cancer

This opinion piece from the Los Angeles Times really says it all. The very idea of letting concern for the "purity" of America's young women trump concern for their health makes my blood boil. The HPV vaccine is terrific news, but the Religious Wrong are threatening to stand in the way of this major medical breakthrough benefitting American citizens. Jesus praised the woman who was subject to bleeding for her faith. He didn't criticize her for daring to come to him in her unclean state. The desire to heal should always win out over the desire to judge.
