I think it's great that they developed such a vaccine for this and I would encourage every woman, my 16 year old daughter included, to go get it. I think the reasoning that partents shouldn't have their daughters get it becaseu they think it will encourage premarital sex is wrong and stupid.
However, I think it's also wrong for the government to require parents to have their daughters vaccinated against a sexually transmitted disease before attending school. Also, if Merck really thinks it's so important that all young women get it why don't they take that money their spending on lobbiest to try and force it on people and lower the $360 price tag.
