Rick Perry’s Crotch Shot
« on: April 07, 2021, 07:19:20 AM »
So this whole mandatory vaccination thing has me thinking about some of the things from the past, like here in Texas when Rick Perry, who I liked as a governor, tried to mandate that girls 12 and younger get a vaccine to prevent HPV.  It didn't go over well.

Rick Perry’s Crotch Shot

<snip>

This can’t go on. Perry can’t continue to denounce mandatory health insurance while defending mandatory vaccinations for a sexually transmitted virus, particularly when his rationale for the vaccine mandate—saving lives and money—mirrors the arguments for the insurance mandate.

Perry has been bashing compulsory health insurance for a long time. Last month, when the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the federal health insurance mandate, Perry crowed, “Yet another federal court has recognized that the Obama Administration’s attempt to force each and every American to purchase health insurance is an egregious violation of our Constitutional rights.” Last night, in his attack on Romney, Perry extended this argument to state-mandated health insurance.

These rules don’t seem to apply to Perry, however. Four years ago, he issued an executive order instructing the Texas health commissioner to “adopt rules that mandate the age appropriate vaccination of all female children for HPV prior to admission to the sixth grade.” Unlike Romney and President Obama, Perry didn’t work out the mandate with his Legislature. He imposed it by decree.



That article is from Slate, obviously.  Not what I would consider a right wing rag.

I had a daughter who was about that age at that time and I was absolutely against this vaccination.  As a matter of fact, people from both sides of the aisle were against it, although the media tried to make it out like it was only conservatives, but I have/had liberal friends and none of them were for this.

Wonder why the DUmmies don't talk about this.  From the article it appears that VA and DC actually have these vaccines for their little girls, but no other states.

I wonder if lesbians show each other their vaccination record?  Inquiring minds ...
