Gardasil vaccination encourages sexual promiscuity
Debate Rounds (3)
As Con and the challenged, the burden of proof is placed upon my opponent to provide support to his claim prior to the debate proceeding. I therefore await the next round from my opponent.
The burden of proof is in the context. The vaccine targets an sti, which would otherwise be protected from by wearing condoms. Condoms are the safest form of protection (save abstinence), and administering a vaccine to protect against an sti develops a false sense of security. In short, one would ideally not contract hpv if they adhered to safe sex practices in the first place, and without the risk of hpv one would be more inclined to have sex without a condom, increasing risk to other infections and unwanted pregnancy.
As well sexual knowledge varies between individuals, sexual educations differ between schools and not everyone has access to the same curriculum. These inconsistencies lead to misconceptions about disease contraction, protection and infectiousness.
A Vaccine, (In action form Vaccination) as defined by  medterms.com, is "[an] Injection of a killed microbe in order to stimulate the immune system against the microbe, thereby preventing disease."
To this end, a vaccine must be proactively administered to have an effect. This prevents its use as a "Plan B," making it difficult to use as justification for sexual promiscuity.
Furthermore, even without the "Plan B" argument, a vaccination must be actively sought out. This means that the vaccinated individual would be aware of its uses. In  GARDASIL's case, the vaccination only protects against four of the known 100 types of HPV, the virus that causes cervical cancer, meaning that it does not protect against most of the health concerns related to sex. This means people treated with it would be aware of its uses, and know to use safe sex as protection.
The 20 or so vaccinations a child receives from birth to 6 years old are entirely non consensual and lack any form of free will. Furthermore, gardasil is recommended to be given to girls as young as seven - a practice obscenely devoid of consent. With confidence one may assert these 7-13 year olds are not actively seeking out std vaccinations.
As well, with regards to sexual knowledge/plan b - to actively get vaccinated for std prevention there is a preconceived awareness that hpv can be contracted without condoms, and if one is protecting themselves from an infection contracted by unsafe sexual practices they are doing so with the intent to engage in unsafe encounters with the knowledge they will not get hpv. Thus exposing themselves to other sti's and pregnancy.
Space is short, but that's a good start.
