Texas HPV vaccine mandate

Andy Schlafly speaks out on MSNBC against the Texas HPV vaccine mandate, with video here and here.

In California, the cat-spanking lady introduced a law to force sixth-graders to get the $360 vaccine. If the vaccine were really so great, then people would get it voluntarily.

Update: CNN reports:
But in the real world, Gardasil is getting used less than doctors would like. Pediatricians and gynecologists from Arizona to New York are refusing to stock Gardasil because of its $360 price for the three doses required and "totally inadequate" reimbursement from most insurers.
Apparently the vaccine may not be cost-effective, even if it works as promised and is risk-free.
