The National Organization for Women Foundation (NOW Foundation) was established in 1986 as a 501(c)(3) "education and litigation organization allied with the National Organization for Women." [1]

Support for Gardasil

In its 2005 Annual Report the NOW Foundation reported that during the year it had run a "Women's Health Project effort involved public education activities concerning FDA review of a new vaccine that protects women against cancer-causing strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV). Although it is generally accepted that the vaccine is effective against the most dangerous strains of HPV, which are responsible for about 70 percent of all cases of cervical cancer, vaccine opponents claim that making it a regular part of children's vaccine protocol would encourage young women to be more sexually active. It was expected that the FDA would meet in early 2006 to make a final determination on the vaccine's availability." [2]
