Bachmann Joins Most Harm Club

News, Friday, 16 September 2011:

“Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann a told story about  woman who claimed that her daughter suffered "mental retardation" after receiving a vaccine against HPV”

“Two bioethics professors have offered to pay more than $10,000 for medical records that prove the anecdote Bachmann told after Monday night's Republican presidential debate is true.”

Making things easier for those seeking the reward, U of M bioethics professor, Steven Miles, offered $1,000 for release of the medical records for the woman from Bachmann's story.  Those records would provide a basis for the claim – if not direct causal evidence.  Wonder How much are the odds makers setting for bets that no such records will be forthcoming?

HPV, Human papillomavirus (a sexually transmitted disease) can cause cervical cancer -- Texas Gov Rick Perry, in 2007, ordered all sixth grade girls to be inoculate against it.  The Texas legislature objected and the policy was never implemented.  HUM… Texas girls are sexually active and the legislature wants them exposed to STD’s?  STD’s like HPV are common enough in Texas to warrant such an order – but the legislature would prefer the gals get cancer (is it because the are immoral sluts who deserve to die?  Or so holds the Legislature).

While she has repeatedly asserted the story (as fact), Bachmann admits she had "no idea" if it were true.  So she stood up at the debate and willfully lied to placate  the Most Harm Group – she is, by act and word, promoting the spread of an STD.  And she is using a falsehood to stop timely implementation of preventative measures.  Guess she also opposes the Polio Vaccine and Flu Vaccines … and any or all other medical care options.

YEP – This is the GOP at its best.
