Put Your Money Where Your Ignorant Mouth Is, Michele Bachmann

Posted By on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 at 11:00 AM

[Skip ahead to 2:10 to see Bachmann link the HPV vaccination and "mental retardation"]

Penn Professor and bioethicist Arthur Caplan is challenging Michele Bachmann's anti-HPV vaccination scare tactics:


If she can produce a case in one week starting today verified by three medical experts that she and i pick of a woman who became 'retarded' (her words) due to HPV vaccine i will donate that to a charity of her choice. She must donate 10k to a charity I pick if she fails to do so.

My guess is Bachmann just ignores this challenge, but it gets out in the media enough, maybe she'll have to address it, no?
