Last January, I began reporting on the first vaccine to prevent an STD: Gardasil by Merck, to fend off HPV, the human papillomavirus.
Living in IL, I smelled a rat when bills began simultaneously popping up in state legislatures across the U.S. to mandate the 3-shot Gardasil regimen to all 11- and 12-year-old girls. I, along with several others, started blogging against the liberal and MSM tide, even getting a mention in the New York Times. Was the vaccine safe? Was it smart? Was there quid pro quo?
After TX Gov. Rick Perry went so far as to sign an executive order forcing the vaccine, it came to light that Merck had financial ties to the poke pushers.
Perry’s exec order was overturned, Merck called off its legislative whores, and pro-family proponents won the day, even while liberals and MSM grumbled at our ignorance.
