Now you're the one arguing "semantics". My point is that their ad campaign is manipulative. All of my statements have been about preventing
cervical cancer, except for the one sarcastic one that Babyblue responded to. I have said many times that claiming they can prevent cervical cancer is misleading. Is that better? I know they're not saying they can "cure" cancer, but they are making it sound like they can stop it from occurring, which is not true.
