During his New Rules segment on Real Time this Friday evening, Bill Maher went after these so-called "family values" Republicans and the real reason they hate the the morning after pill and the HPV vaccine -- "because they remove God's natural intended punishments for sluts who put out."

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. Read on...
