Take Gardacil Off the Market!

A friend sent me this sad, sad video of a young woman whose life has been destroyed by taking Gardacil. Gardacil is a newish vaccine given primarily to young women and teen girls, marketed to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV ). According to the Center for Disease Control, HPV, or genital warts, is the most common sexually-transmitted disease (STD) there is. Statistically, sexually active people have a 50-50% chance of contracting the disease. There is a link from HPV to certain types of cancer. This risk factor is often used by physicians and Merck, who produces and markets the drug, to get women to accept the Gardacil vaccine.

A young woman speaks out after her life was destroyed by the Gardacil vaccine

The Center for Disease Control states that most cases of genital warts (HPV) resolve on their own in a couple of years with no residual health concerns. It is only certain strains of HPV which linger in the body for years that can lead to cancer in the reproductive organs or mouth and throat. Unfortunately, this fact is not always shared by doctors. Fearful girls ask for Gardacil as a preventative measure without researching the possible side effects of the vaccine.

 There have been at least 99 deaths due directly to Gardacil. These girls could have simply been checked for cervical cancer in routine annual exams by their gynecologists.

My governor, Rick Perry, mandated Gardacil by executive order for all Texas middle school girls in 2007. When I enrolled my children in the public school system in 2009, the mandate was still in place. I requested a vaccination "opt-out" waiver from the State of Texas for my daughter, who was enrolling into the seventh grade that year. The school had no problem whatsoever with either our decision or the documents. It was easy, and only cost $10 for the state paperwork.


It was one of the best decisions I ever made, even though I was ridiculed by some of my family members. That year, in 2009, all kinds of concerns were raised about the vaccine's safety. I could have either killed or maimed my daughter for life if I had not listened to my gut intuition.

My daughters, 2011

Every state has a vaccination opt-out program. Please visit Vaccination to get one for your state, if you choose. Make sure you do your research before you make a decision like this.
