Essay:Fertility and Covid: The Narrative and the Needle
Fertility and Covid: The Narrative and the Needle
By Nancy Thorner
In my essay posted on January 11, 2022, Might the COVID Shot Be A Depopulation Agent?, the philosophical underpinnings were reviewed of why the Covid shot could be a depopulation agent.
If this injection is indeed a mechanism for population reduction, while that mechanism still needs to be elucidated, there is – as you will see below – ample reason to suspect this may well be the case.
In a brief review of my January 11, 2020 commentary as to the “whys” behind how the Covid shot could be a depopulation agent, the issue is simple. The Malthusians now running the world, including those behind the shot, have a profound inability to comprehend the simple dictum of Julian Simon: The most important benefit of population size and growth is the increase it brings to the stock of useful knowledge. Minds matter economically as much as, or more than, hands or mouths.
This is the same Julian Simon that bet former catastrophic global cooler, later to become catastrophic global warmer, Paul Ehrlich, that the price of chromium, copper, nickel, tin, and tungsten would go down, not up, by September 29, 1990. All five commodities selected by Ehrlich went down by the targeted date. In Oct. 1990, Ehrlich mailed Julian Simon a check for $576.07 to settle the wager.
In short, more people means more ideas and innovations, which includes the ability to solve environmental problems. The bet was proposed a second time, but in the typical intellectual dishonesty of the left, Ehrlich tried to game the bet (adding in things that had nothing to do with human flourishing), so the bet did not occur. If you want to read further, Vincent Geloso discusses this wonderfully at the American Inst. for Economic Research here.
Will the population overwhelm the planet?
Truth is, many scientists state the population is already leveling off and will then start to drop in our lifetimes. As just one example, Sadan and Dhume wrote in their December 23, 2021 article, India May Face a Population Implosion, that India’s total fertility rate -- the average number of children a woman will bear during her lifetime -- has fallen to 2. This is below the replacement level of 2.1 for the first time, making Malthusians such as Mr. Ehrlich spectacularly wrong.
Thanks to new varieties of wheat and rice developed by the American scientist Norman Borlaug and the International Rice Research Institute, India went from being dependent on food aid in the 1960s to a major agricultural exporter by the early 2010's. As in many countries, urbanization, rising income, and female literacy, and increased contraception have led to plummeting fertility rates. India’s population is expected to peak at 1.6 billion by mid-century… then decline.
This is all consistent with what has been an open secret for years. E.g., in April 2012, the Royal Society published People and the Planet, calling for the West to be de-industrialized, as well as for a drastic population reduction based on their preposterous “modeling” analyses. Paul Ehrlich baldly put it: They (population and resources) multiply together. You have to deal with them together. We have too much consumption among the rich and too little among the poor.
That implies that terrible thing that we are going to have to do, which is to somehow redistribute access to resources away from the rich to the poor…you might be able to support about 4 or 5 billion people in the long term. But you already have 7 billion. So we have to humanely and as rapidly as possible move to population shrinkage.
And $100 to the first person who guesses who will be in charge of that redistribution process, as well as who will be exempted because they are “special” (hint: they will be the same people who took private jets to the recent COP26 global warming confab or think instructive examples like entitled Chelsea Clinton taking a private jet to a clean energy round table a few years ago, which would normally have been just a 5-hour drive for most of us poor unwashed masses?).
Why could the elites try to use gene therapy shots to reduce fertility?
With the above in mind, let’s start the examination of the science and the data behind the threat Covid shots pose to fertility, which will be continued in a subsequent article due to the amount of material to cover.
As to health impact reported as far back as Sept. 2021: There have also now been 1,490 recorded fetal deaths following COVID-19 injections of pregnant women. By way of contrast, (they) performed the same search in the VAERS database for fetal deaths due to the flu shots, and for 2021 (up to that date), there are ZERO. For last year, 2020, there were 16 fetal deaths following flu shots taken by pregnant women, per the National Vaccine Information Center. This is just an initial clue for you about what is going on.
As the CDC continues to recommend that pregnant women get a COVID-19 shot, the shots also seem to be also killing and crippling teenagers in record numbers, not to mention the lock downs destroying lives, finances, educations, and the future of the young.
Exhibit A for this? Take a moment to download and review this report, CG REPORT 3: The Impact of Pandemic Restrictions on Childhood Mental Health, which provides detailed evidence showing the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on children and adolescents’ mental health and well-being. It’s not pretty.
Threats to Pregnancy from the Shot
Let us now return to issues about pregnancy itself. Under the label of “missing information,” Pfizer itself told the FDA that it had no information about “Use in Pregnancy and lactation” nor “Use in Pediatric Individuals < 12 Years of Age.” “Vaccine Effectiveness” was also listed as “Missing information” by Pfizer.
It appears, then, that Pfizer told the FDA its vaccines might kill people, but that it had no information about the impact on pregnancy and nursing. At the same time, the FDA pushed the vaccine as “safe and effective” anyway. Following the Nuremberg code about informed consent, shouldn’t we all have been informed about risks for those who want to become pregnant?
A refresher on "the right to informed consent from the Nuremberg trials" can be found in an article at the British Medical Journal. In fact, FDA News says: The package insert reveals that there is no safety reassurance for pregnant women because all available data is 'insufficient to inform vaccine-associated risks in pregnancy' The FDA also says that they do not know if the spike proteins produced by the vaccine can be produced in breast milk to harm a newborn.
None of this should have been a shock. A 2011 study in the journal Vaccine, entitled Inflammatory Responses to Trivalent Influenza Virus Vaccine Among Pregnant Women, showed even in the “regular” flu vaccine inflammatory adverse events, such as pre-eclampsia and preterm birth, occurred among pregnant women taking the trivalent influenza vaccine.
As of August 20, 2021, 3,190 pregnant women reported adverse events related to COVID vaccines, including 982 reports of miscarriage or premature birth. Just before that, June 11, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) had posted 358,379 adverse events, including 5,993 deaths and 29,871 serious injuries. In the 12-to-17-year-old age group, there were 271 serious injuries and seven deaths. Among pregnant women there were 2,136 adverse events, including 707 miscarriages or premature births.
This was over half a year ago, with numbers much larger now. Also, all of these are clearly massive under counts, as historically less than 10% of vaccine side effects are reported to VAERS.
Dr. Peter McCullough summarized it all by stating the Covid shot is killing babies in the first trimester at an astonishing rate, which he calls “an atrocity.”
Life Site News' Damning Analysis
Lifesite News has an utterly damning report on miscarriages in their December 23, 2021 report: FOIA docs reveal Pfizer shot caused an avalanche of miscarriages, stillborn babies. I would encourage you to read this in full; however, the salient parts are summarized below:
When a group called Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency asked Pfizer to share the raw data from their COVID vaccine trials and post-marketing surveillance that was used to license the injection, the pharma giant linked up with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to refuse the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. In fact, the FDA (meant to serve and protect public health) hired Justice Department lawyers and went to court to shield the pharmaceutical giant from having to reveal its data – for 55 years.
That’s right. The FDA and Pfizer did not want anyone to see the numbers behind their COVID vaccine until 2076. Fortunately, a judge ruled that the FDA and Pfizer would have to answer their FOIA requests.
Among the first reports handed over by Pfizer was a Cumulative Analysis of Post-authorization Adverse Event Reports describing events reported to Pfizer up until February 2021. It reveals that the drug behemoth received more than 150,000 serious adverse event reports within three months of rolling out its COVID shot, but here we will focus on Table 6 of the data on pregnant and lactating women who received the shots in the first few months of the rollout, which began December 11… As the clinical trials preceding the rollout excluded pregnant women, these would have been the first pregnant and lactating women to have ever received the vaccines. Table 6 states that of 270 “unique pregnancies” that were exposed to the vaccine, “no outcome was provided for 238 pregnancies.” This leaves 32 pregnancies with known outcomes. Pfizer’s report states that there were 23 spontaneous abortions (miscarriages), two premature births with neonatal death, two spontaneous abortions with intrauterine death, one spontaneous abortion with neonatal death, and one pregnancy with “normal outcome.” That means that of 32 pregnancies with known outcomes, 28 resulted in fetal death. Pfizer’s report states that there were five pregnancies with “outcome pending” as well as the 238 with “no outcome provided.” But 32 minus 28 equals four, not five.
Because of this confusion, (the author from LifeSite) called Pfizer and emailed questions to their media rep. As their report suggests, were 28 of 32 known pregnancy outcomes actually fatal in the first 10 weeks that the vaccine became available? That’s an 87.5% pregnancy loss rate? And only one pregnancy outcome was “normal”?
No reply. The FDA would have had this data in their hands by the end of April. Maybe this is why they wanted to hide it for 55 years?
Reports in Canada
In Canada, whistleblower reports have claimed spiking stillborn death rates after COVID injections.
A retired doctor in British Columbia, Dr. Mel Bruchet, claimed in November 2021 there had been 13 stillbirths in a 24-hour period at the Lion’s Gate Hospital in Vancouver. A grandmother whose grand baby was stillborn at the hospital tweeted November 21: My daughter got that damned poison vaccine one month ago because she couldn’t go to a restaurant, and people were freaking out because she was unvaxxed. I want to sue the government. Of course, that message was scrubbed from Twitter.
Bruchet’s likewise claims in the same article: Dr. Daniel Nagase, an Alberta doctor who was ordered to leave his hospital for treating three COVID patients (all of whom who went home from hospital alive) with ivermectin, told a reporter that he had been informed of 86 stillbirths in Waterloo, Ontario between January and July.
Per Nagase: Normally, it’s only five or six stillbirths every year. So, about one stillbirth every two months is the usual rate. So, to suddenly get to 86 stillbirths in six months, that’s highly unusual. But, the most important confirmation that we have from the Waterloo, Ontario report was that all of the [mothers of the] 86 stillbirths were fully vaccinated.
One woman reported in the article: I just had my baby girl in July [and] the amount of pressure I felt from my doctors to get the [vaccine] while pregnant almost made me go against my morals, and I almost got it. My OBGYN’s exact words to me were, ‘you are stupid for not getting it. You will die in ICU.”
If doctors are fearmongering like that to patients, is it unreasonable to think there is at least a problem of under-reporting of adverse events following vaccination? What doctor who is so dogmatic about his latest pharma cocktail is going to consider (let alone admit) there could be a problem with it?
Science. Or not.
VigiBase, the database of the World Health Organization, reports pregnancy complications – obtained from FOIA documentation, here – including:
3,952 spontaneous abortions 353 fetal deaths 189 missed abortions 166 premature labors 160 premature babies 154 abortions 150 slow movement of unborn baby 146 hemorrhages in pregnancy 132 premature deliveries 123 fetal growth restriction 120 stillbirths 105 ectopic pregnancies 90 pre-eclampsia
These dangers are justified in that women are supposedly more likely to die or experience severe illness (up to and including losing the baby) due to Covid, but as usual from Big Pharma, no evidence is provided… just the same old hackneyed narrative, “It is safe and effective”, which is by now extremely threadbare.
The one CDC study used is a comparison of stillbirth rates in 1,249,634 deliveries at 736 hospitals March 2020–September 2021 among women with and without COVID infections. In fact, it tells us there was an increase in stillbirths… except it was not during the height of the first viral wave. Rather, the surge came after Delta got established and – importantly – was after pregnant women had been being pressured into vaccines.
The fact that the Phase IV experimental shots could have been the cause was not even considered, despite the fact that CDC stillbirths were 0.98% of pre-Delta/vaccine usage deliveries, versus 2.70% after the vaccines the shots became widespread.
CDC told us: Vaccination status was unable to be assessed in this analysis… COVID-19 vaccination coverage among pregnant women was approximately 30% as of July 2021; most women with COVID-19 at delivery were likely unvaccinated.
“Likely?? How likely? “Kinda sorta” likely? “We guess” likely? “Maybe we haven’t the foggiest idea,” likely? This is supposed to be science
Here is another article of must-read importance from LifeSite News outing the fakery on pregnancy.
Stay tuned for my next commentary for more studies on the Covid shot on pregnancy.
