No surprise that yet another greedy politician receives a "kickback" from a pharmaceutical company. Where is the public outcry that a 12 year old child, a sexually active 12 year old child, can receive this vaccine without parental knowledge or approval!!!

Come on people, we are supposed to protect our children!
