Sorry its been so quite here on the blog and the FB, to be honest it seemed for a while that the mainstream media, not to mention countless other women’s organisations and the PM here self were all setting out to achieve the goals of this blog by publicising what a nightmare Tony Abbott is for Australian women. Which is absolutely awesome, but also made it a bit difficult to think of witty things to reveal!
But I saw this online today and couldn’t help myself.
in the land of the free and the brave – and thanks to the conservative right – Gardisil is becoming increasingly known as the ‘promiscuity vaccine’.
Some political groups are actively campaigning against the vaccine – on MORAL grounds.
The full article about attitudes to Gadisil, the cervical cancer vaccine in America is here.
The report glowingly describes the success of the vaccination program in Australia. But we shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves.
Let’s not forget that our very own Tony Abbott opposed the introduction of this drug and had to be over-ruled by John Howard to have it introduced. And don’t forget Tony Abbott said he wouldn’t rush out to have his daughters vaccinated. See this earlier blog for full details.
Why on earth would someone not want his daughters vaccinated against a deadly disease?
Ah – ha. Perhaps these American morality crusaders can give us a terrifying insight into what our very own Tony Abbott was thinking when he tried to stop Gardisil reaching Australian girls.
