CA Parental Rights Victorious - Temporarily - CA AB 499 In Suspense File "An 18 year old, Northern California Teenager, traveled to the Capitol to present testimony on her experience with Gardasil at age 15. According to her testimony, Courtney and her mother visited their local Kaiser hospital for her check-up. During that visit the girl’s mother consented to allow the doctor to speak to the girl alone. The doctor proceeded to attempt to persuade her to consent to the Gardasil shot declaring that, if the girl really wanted the shot, she, the doctor, would not tell her mother. Courtney said no, she did not want the shot. Upon returning the girl to the mother, the doctor declared that if Courtney did not receive the shot, she could, if ever raped, contact cancer and die."
