If Abstinence Education in Texas Works, Then Why Did Rick Perry Try to Force STD Shots on Little Girls?

23 July 2011 at 1:02:03 PM

Just thinking about how Rick Perry cannot have it both ways. Either the teaching in school works to prevent teenager pregnancy rates and pre-marital sex OR mandatory Gardasil shots are required for young girls. (As suckup to Perry's buddy, Merck).

Let's review when, in 2010, Evan Smith of the Texas Tribune asked Rick Perry why, if abstinence training works, Texas has such a high rate of teen pregnancies. (Close your eyes and listen to this and you'll think you're hearing George Bush).

Now let's consider Perry's big donor, Merck.Merck paid in money to Perry's campaign and that very same day he met with them to discuss HPV shots. When people didn't go for this, he issued an executive order, BYPASSING THE TEXAS LEGISLATURE, to force the shots. The legislature went to the Attorney General and a group of families sued and Perry had to back down and rescind his outrage *I am the King* order. It was Republican conservatives that were most upset over what Perry was doing, because he was interfering in their family business regarding sexual education, etc. Here's a video from then that expresses the Republican outrage via Politicol News.

P.S. Perry is all about saying that he's against big government sticking its nose where it doesn't belong, like when he refused to sign passed bill about not texting while driving. But that doesn't apply to situations where he's getting paid a lot of money by Big Pharm and wants to stick his nose into family's business.

P.P.S. As of today, Rick Perry is trying to pretend to the gullible that he was One Of the First to realize he made a mistake Right. C'mere-I have some ocean view land in Texas to sell ya!
