Thus, I think you're misrepresenting things. Your thread title says "forced" when you know that's not at all true. This is no different than how public schools require vaccines for students entering kindergarten. In fact, seeing as how this is optional, its even less intrusive. Now, here's the real area for concern. I found it surprising that a Republican in a blue state was pushing this. But, guess what, Gov. Perry is pretty closely tied to the manufacturer of the drug, SURPRISE SURPRISE. So, I guess that means he won't be advocating for a generic equivalent to be offered to help minimize the cost of this new requirement.
