Bill Maher eviscerates Republicans over their hypocrisy about being pro-life and anti-Plan B and HPV vaccine.

Courtesy of the Daily Kos: 

And finally, New Rule: Stop saying Republicans are waging a war on women. It's not women they hate, it's women having sex that doesn't end with a baby popping out. Sex in their mind is for procreation, not recreation. The same way the G-spot is seen as just another liberal hoax that needs more study. 

All right, I bring this up because, besides the heroic Wendy Davis, there were two stories in the news last week dealing with teenage sex. And just to be safe, the Vatican issued a denial. (audience groans) Yeah, you'll get over it. 

One story was about Plan B. That's the morning after pill that the FDA says is safer than Motrin, and which any American can now buy over the counter, just like milk and ammo. And because it's a birth control pill, it will prevent abortions. 

Now the other story was about the vaccine for HPV, which is the STD that leads to cervical cancer, and how that vaccine, since its introduction in 2006, has reduced teenage infections by 56%. 

All good news, right? Wrong! No, over in Family Values World, things like Plan B and the HPV vaccine are bad, because they remove God's natural intended punishments for sluts who put out. (shocked audience laughter) It's true. 

A) being saddled with a baby you don't want, or 
B) stricken with a horrible disease. 

You don't think that's how these people think? Then tell me why conservatives always couch their objections to the HPV vaccine in "parental rights", but never complain about other state-mandated vaccines their kids have to get. Why not throw a shit fit about the measles vaccine? Or mumps, rubella, whooping cough, chicken pox? Because you don't get those diseases from screwing or yodeling in the canyon. (audience laughter turns into cheering) 

They do not want a vaccine for HPV, because that's the good kind of cancer, that makes hussies think twice about going all the way. Ron Paul — a fucking doctor! — said this vaccine, which prevents thousands of cases of a fatal disease, was "not good medicine". And Michele Bachmann said it caused mental retardation. Her source? The New England Journal of A Lady Who Stopped Me on the Street and Told Me That.

This was one of Maher's best New Rules segments.

During the4 show he also took a couple of shots at Sarah Palin, and the fact that Bristol Palin has a reality show and Zimmerman star witness Rachel Jeantel does not.

You can watch the whole thing for yourself right here.

    Teen girls should listen to Bristol Palin and practice abstinence. Oh, wait.

    love Bill Maher.

    In most cases HPV GOES AWAY BY ITSELF before it causes any health problems, and most people who become infected with HPV do not even know they have it.

    HPV is so common that nearly all sexually-active men and women will get at least one type of HPV at some point in their lives.

    Both vaccines can possibly prevent 2 of the 40 types of HPV.
    lots of side effects that can't be explained

    this drug was rushed through in 6 months. It pulled Merck out of bankruptcy simply by being forced on little girls in Texas.

      Ugh, no thank you to anything from Joe Mercola and his anti-vaccine, grifter website.

      Also, this:

      "Two HPV vaccines are licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The bivalent HPV vaccine (Cervarix) prevents the two HPV types, 16 and 18, which cause 70% of cervical cancers. The quadrivalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil) prevents four HPV types: HPV 16 and 18, as well as HPV 6 and 11, which cause 90% of genital warts. Quadrivalent vaccine has also been shown to protect against cancers of the anus, vagina and vulva. Only quadrivalent vaccine is licensed in use for males."

      I have two young daughters and you can bet that they will be getting the HPV vaccine as soon as they are old enough. If I had boys, I'd make sure they get it as well.

    2. Mercola isn't exactly a reliable source. Find another citation.

  3. Bill nails it (as always) I just saw this and at first I thought it was a joke.

    The preacher's daughter reference, remind you of someone?

    Where does he get his material?

    You're much better off staying away from conspiracy websites such as Mercola, or that dreadful Mike Adams of Natural News. Please!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
