    Also i agree with a earlier post stop the war on iraq and use that money to help us here.
    I think the goal is to give it to them before they become sexually active.

It's bad enough we have boatloads of 14-16 year old teens getting pregenant and having kids, not to mention the fact that most teen dads don't do anything for thier kids until it's too late.

    I don't agree with giving kids vaccines for STD's. It's like giving my three year old sister a condom and saying, "Go for it, kid. Have fun."
    The reason that the recommended age for starting the vaccine is 9-11 years old is because it's more effective at that age, and most girls at that age have not had sex, so chances are that they haven't already been infected by HPV.

    If you really think kids will figure it's okay to start having sex with anyone and everyone just because they've been vaccinated against HPV, maybe you should remind them that AIDS, Hepatitis B, chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, syphilis, etc. are all spread by sexual contact. Besides, when teens become sexually active, they're more worried about unwanted pregnancies that STDs. I don't know if the HPV vaccine should be mandatory, but I do think that its opponents should come up with a better argument than "it'll make kids want to have sex".
