Well, the HPV vaccine came up in discussion when we briefly mentioned profit motive. It was not relative to the op but it came up. So I expanded on the topic since it was mentioned as a cure for the leading cause of cervical cancer. Now that one has been passed into law if I'm not mistaken. Or it was in the works to pass it into law as a mandatory consumption of the product. I maintain that it is not a cure for the larger cause. Which is modern lifestyle. Why should my daughter be forced to consume a product by law as a consequence of the popularized indulgences of others? What if I raise my daughter to make good choices instead of trying to be popular and do those popular things? She should be forced to consume the product for the greater good? Even though I don't view it is a greater or common good at all. Seems like it's only going to lead to more bad decisions and promote the trend if people think they can just go get a shot to make the consequences go away.
I don't really feel much on typing right now, MelissaWV, but I do want to expand on it more when I'm up to it.
Again, when the morality of the country changes, it will reflect on the laws. Arbitrary laws aren't going to fix the more fundamental problem. The fundamental problem is society. Why should my daughter be forced to consume someones product at the barrel of a government gun because of the consequences of the popularized indulgences of the collective? What if I taught my daughter that she doesn't and shouldn't have to comform to the popular trends and indulgences in modern society? What if I taught her the consequences of poor choices and popularized physical indulgences just because everyone else is doing it? If she's been taught the consequences and lives a moral lifestyle where she isn't consumed by sexually transmitted diseases, why should she be subjected to forced consumption because of the consequences of the indulgences of others?
What I'm talking about is something entirely different than the nature of the thread. I'm talking about The Individual whose moral duty is to adhere to a Higher Law as opposed to the arbitrary legalities of society. I just shared some brief thoughts on it since it came up.
