Bachmann going after HPV and Perry
Michelle Bachmann is going all in on the Gardasil issue. Now she’s courting the Jenny McCarthy vote. this will not end well for Bachmann, if she continues down this path. She’s not making friends with this purely political attack.
I am a supporter of Bachmann, but this is the wrong path to attack Perry on. It rings of political opportunism, and also seems wrong on the facts, too. She’s painting herself into the anti-vaccination crowd. That is a complete loser position, and she should back herself out of it.
Edit: CDC Report on Gardasil. Sure doesn’t look like it’s the second coming of the plague to me.
Based on all of the information we have today, CDC recommends HPV vaccination for the prevention of most types of cervical cancer. As with all approved vaccines, CDC and FDA will continue to closely monitor the safety of HPV vaccines. Any problems detected with these vaccines will be reported to health officials, healthcare providers, and the public and needed action will be taken to ensure the public’s health and safety.
