Heading out the door
Just heard on CNN that Merck has a new drug awaiting FDA approval. It fights the virus HPV, which causes cervical cancer (kills 4,000 women a year). The drug would, ideally, be administered to teenage girls to help prevent them getting HPV and cancer. However, there is concern that this would make those silly teenage girls go horny and screw their brains out — without protection.
So let me get this straight. The CDC thinks we women should practice “pre-pregnancy” healthcare, starting when we’re young. But we can’t give girls medicine that will keep them from getting cancer that will require the loss of their reproductive organs and/or their lives?
