Anti HPV-Vaccine Video Raises False Fears of Gardasil Around the Internet

Today in useless fear mongering news, people are apparently afraid of Gardasil now, the vaccine that has the potential to bring the number of people who get newly infected with HPV every year – 14 million – way down. All courtesy of a video from Jenny Thompson of Health Sciences Institute that's full of claims about women dying after getting the vaccine.

In case you're seeing something like this on your own Facebook feed, Snopes.com has got you covered:

The video can't hide its political roots: Thompson and the Health Sciences Institute are practically on a slut-hunt. According to Thompson, girls who get the Gardasil vaccine won't use protection during sex. The implication is that parents should avoid getting their children the Gardasil vaccination, since their pure nine-year-old girls will stay away from sex and STDs anyway — because no one wants their daughter to grow up to be well-informed, sexually active teenager who's protected from HPV, right? Snopes is on to that too:

Your move, conservative anti-vaccination lobby.
