Shocking Political News From Texas - A Public Health Victory

Texas just became the first state in the Union to require that all schoolgirls receive the cervical cancer vaccine.

Of course, our governor, who made the order, is in bed allegedly with the vaccine manufacturer, but still, this is good news for the future women of Texas.

I have known many people affected by cervical cancer. The fear has always been that the "std" tag would prevent families from choosing to do this for their daughters.
