'Forces within the administration'

In God is Not Great iconoclastic author Christofer Hitchens is very scathing about the "forces within the adminstration" that would prevent the planned roll-out of Gardasil, the vaccine against HPV, known to be a primary cause of cervical cancer.

"To accept the spread of cervical cancer in the name of God is no different morally or intellectually from sacrificing these women on a stone altar and thanking the deity for giving us the sexual impulse and then condemning it."

(PS: A fun New Yorker cartoon)
