The War Against Women, Again

There's a potential new vaccine out for HPV, the STI that causes cervical cancer. Naturally, the Religious Right is against vaccinating girls before they become sexually active. As Amanda Marcotte writes, "Pushing the vaccination as penis wart prevention is a good idea in and of itself, but it's still chilling to consider that selling it as a cancer prevention for women doesn't fly because so many so-called Christians think cancer is proper punishment for women who have sex chills me to the bone."
