    Yeah, Meat, I can't find any national NRLC position on the HPV vaccine, either.
    Several groups, including the Family Research Council and James Dobson's Focus on the Family, did come out against it, then badkpedaled furiously and tried to mumble something about families being able to "choose" to have their daughters vaccinated, as though that is an effective way to deploy a vaccine.

    It's that shit that drives me crazy, though. We could all but eradicate cervical cancer. But not if it might possibly make some future woman more sexually active. We have no evidence this will occur, mind you. We're just worried about it.

    I tend to agree, though those aren't "pro-life" groups, per se. They're conservative activism groups that take an anti-abortion stance. I was an active pro-lifer and a conservative back then, but I didn't want to get sucked into 35 other issues too.

    Fixed your post.
  5. Meat -- Your WaPo column is fair rebuttal to me. It does, however, indicate that the NRLC is incapable of simply announcing that Plan B is nobody's damn business but the woman in question.

    Perhaps, but neutrality beats outright opposition. And since there's no pro-life issue at play (in that there's no life to be defended, like there is in abortion and euthanasia), they don't really have a dog in the fight.
