I hope you get cancer and die!

Merck, the makers of the beloved Vioxx, has just released their Anti-human papilloma virus medication Gardacil on the market. It would prevent women from becoming infected by this virus. HPV has been reported to be the cause of ~70% of cervical cancers in the United States.

Some Christian conservative groups, however, do not want this drug on the market because they argue that it would allow more kids to have premarital sex. Because HPV is usually trasmitted during intercourse, these groups oppose the vaccination of young girls.

This makes perfect sense! Not giving this vaccine will keep kids from having sex right? HIV and AIDS isn't scary enough. If you have premarital sex, you should be punished with cancer so you can wither away and die! That's how God and Jesus would have wanted it, right?

Give me a fucking break.
