Here in Argentina we just started to implement a similar program of FREE public vaccinations for all girls 12+ for the HPV AND a massive information campaing about ways to prevent STDs, with free condoms in school and all..
And I agree wholeheartedly, even when I disagree with other policies of my gov't. The HPV is a VERY serious problem, child pregnancy is a VERY serious problem...
Kids nowadays start humping each other at about that age so THIS IS CLEARLY NEEDED, it doesn't matter which "belief" you may have, those are hard, cold, facts. How do you not get pregnant? use a condom.....

And we, (ARG) have a VERY different concept of the role of State in a society, it's the state's responsibility to make sure no kid get's excluded from this programs, it doesn't really matter to me what the parents think, they are human beings not leprechauns so If I use a condom to have safe sex, why shouldnt' them be able to?

It's not that we "believe" what these companies say, it's just you present no solution. How are you going to stop the spread of STD's? It's a public health issue. You can't just say "tell them not to have sex". It's already proven it doesn't work.

Here is a solution, we can tell them not to inject known toxins into their veins. Everything else will come with time. I wish I had all the answers but I don't. Would you willingly inject mercury into your arms? Yes or no?

What kind of mercury are we talking about? There are different variations. Now, we come into contact with it everyday, we breathe it in, drink it, eat it-The death is in the dosage. heck, if you drink apple juice you ingest arsenic.

Doesn't that require money?

Seeing as how children can't be employed at the age of 12 (right? is that still the same?) how does this legislation make any sense?

Children are more likely to do this because "Ha I told you so" than any actual beneficial reason.

Let's simplify the question. Which variation of mercury would you willingly put in your body?

BTW, apple juice has small traces of cyanide in the seeds which does not actually show up in the juice. I am confident that the arsenic myth is a lie. Perhaps you can prove me wrong?

In the UK, if a child can prove they are ''Gillick Competant'', then the parents have absolutely no say over their childs medical health or of their childs medical confidentiality. So if a 13 year old wants an abortion, she does not have to tell her parents and can go and have it done and there is nothing their parents can do about it, they do not even have the right to know about it.

www.foodandwaterwatch.org...

the question is not simple, I come into contact with mercury everyday, so do you. It's a consquence of living in a developed country. You cannot determine what kind of harm will come to you with knowing A. what varaiation you will come in contact with and B. how much you will come in contact with. death is in the dosage not simple contact.

My question was a simple yes or no answer.

The question was... "Would you willingly inject mercury into your veins?"

You then said "What kind of mercury are we talking about? There are different variations."

Then I responded with "Let's simplify the question. Which variation of mercury would you willingly put in your body?"

And then you said "...the question is not simple, I come into contact with mercury everyday, so do you..."

So here we are again. Back to square one even though I have rephrased the question twice for you. Yes, we come into mercury quite often in our daily lives including but not limited to our food supply. I do not willingly eat foods with mercury. I am aware of which foods can contain it and I avoid them as much as possible. I also will not willingly inject mercury into my veins.

Regardless of the mercury we may encounter in our daily lives, would you willingly inject your body with any of the variations of mercury?

The reason I ask is because you seem to be an advocate of vaccinations on this thread and a few other threads. That is fine, we are entitled to our opinion. Since you are and advocate, and you are avoiding the question, I am left with no choice but to automatically assume that you would willingly inject mercury into your veins.

Would you care to clarify?

so buy a lot of LEAP options on their stocks. you will become wealthy, according to what you claim. Options pay about 10x the amount of a stock move.
