A vaccine has been developed to prevent human papilloma virus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer. Some religious groups oppose vaccination because they feel that it would promote premarital sex. I understand that these people want to prevent premarital sex, but women always seem to bear the brunt of their crusade. Given that most of the people at risk haven't even heard of HPV, it seems that punishing women for having sex is more important than saving them from cancer.
