Times of the Internet

ATLANTA, July 16 (UPI) —

About 1 million U.S. adolescents and young adults ages 10-24 reported having chlamydia, gonorrhea or syphilis in 2006, health officials said.

Nearly one-quarter of females aged 15-19 years and 45 percent of those ages 20-24 years had a human papillomavirus infection during 2003-2004, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report said.


Comment from Leslie

Let’s see – over 1/2 of the girls already exposed to the HPV – not being tested for the virus before getting Gardasil – and according to FDA documents – chances of getting cervical cancer if exposed to the virus AND get the vaccine increases the risk by 44.6%.

Ok РI am going out on a feminist limb Рhere Рnow that THEY know that WOMEN are not DIRTY because of menstruation Рare THEY going to declare us DIRTY because we carry viruses.  Where are the men/boys in all of this mix?

Oh yeah – they are the THEY I am referring to.
