This morning I read from the AP about Jade Goody, British reality star, who at the tender age of 27 years is dying of cervical cancer. Now my point here is not to criticize the dying woman. Not at all. But I want to criticize the “mainstream” media. In its shameless promotion of the lax morals of the Sexual Revolution, it has killed millions of people around the world. Cervical cancer is caused in nearly all cases by sexual promiscuity–not necessarily on the part of the woman dying, but it could be her partner who transmits it to her. The sexually transmitted Human papillomavirus (HPV) which is a root factor in cervical cancer. True monogamy, thus, eliminates the risk.
I read six articles on Jade Goody from today Google News before I found one that made the link between HPV and cervical cancer, by Jane Kirby in Pennsylvania (The Independent) in her third to last line:
Most cases of cervical cancer are caused by the sexually transmitted infection, human papillomavirus (HPV).
This disconnect in the media is like failing to mention smoking when someone dies of lung cancer. But since a whole system of morals that the media has been pushed on the public is at stake, well, we will just remind women to get pap smears, which are necessary because of promiscuity.
Update: Jade Goody died of cervical cancer on 22 March 2009.
