I just finished watching this segment that originally aired on 60 Minutes back in Nov '05. (Here's the video)

It's all about religious fanatics infiltrating our government for the sole purpose of attacking women's right which was led by Dr. Hager:

But in to a speech he gave to a Christian college, he seemed to admit his role was all about religion. "God has used me to stand in the breach for the cause of the kingdom," Hager said at the time. He was talking about Plan B. "But I argued it from a scientific perspective. And God took that information and He used it through this minority report to influence a decision.

It sounds ridiculous, but the White House and ACIP are listening -- and this small, shrill band could get their way...read on"

Truth Dig:

Of course, there’s the rub: The objection to the HPV vaccine isn’t based on science; rather, it comes from a biblically based squeamishness about premarital sex. Religious values, however, shouldn’t affect FDA approval or recommendation by the ACIP. From a public health perspective, we can’t continue to allow conservatives to depict science as a cultural bogeyman...read on
