Senator Opposing Perry Plan for HPV Vaccines

Some opposition today for Governor Rick Rerry's order requiring girls to be vaccinated against a virus that causes cervical cancer. 

State Senator Jane Nelson is calling for the governor to withdraw his order for girls in Texas to be vaccinated for Human Papiloma Virus. But Perry spokeswoman Krista Moody says the governor will stand by his decision.
    

Nelson, who chairs the Senate's Health and Human Services Committee...says lawmakers should have been allowed to hear from doctors...scientists and patients before a decision was made.
     

Nelson says she plans to ask the State Attorney General about the legality of the order.
