Gardasil Vaccination

January 8, 2009 — Leave a comment

Today was a better day. Kendra and I spent a lot of time together and you can read that over on the Kid’s blog.

Anyways, I wanted to post my opinion on the Gardasil¬†immunization that is out. This shot only protects girls from cervical cancer that is caused by HPV (human papillomavirus). HPV is only transmitted sexually. Therefore, will I have my daughter vaccinated? NO. Why you ask? You see I do not believe in sex outside of marriage, therefore in order to keep with that I will not give her the vaccine. Once she is 18 and able to make her own health decisions that will be up to her, but as a teenager I feel that since she won’t be having sex there is no need for it. I fully intend to tell her why she will not get it and discuss with her all the consequences for having sex. I hope that I can be a good example to her and that she can come to me and talk when she needs to. So that is where I stand on that. Feel free to comment and discuss further your thoughts and feelings.
