Washington Post: Cervical Cancer Vaccine Gets Injected With a Social Issue

This is what bugs me about the Religious Right: they confuse prevention with condoning, because in their minds every single issue is a slippery slope toward eternal damnation.

The basic argument here is that if we give preteens a shot that could prevent sexually-transmitted cancer, said preteens might be confused and think that we were telling them to go have wild orgies. Do these people really have so little faith in their own children?
