Horowitz: Why there is an urgent need to study effects of COVID shots on reproductive health
When a private actor seeks to get a product approved for human use, the company must prove conclusively using the scientific method that the product is safe. How much more that principle applies when governments endorse, market, and mandate the use of the product. Yet here we are, 16 months into the release of this product, with endless safety signals showing a diverse array of injuries from the shot, but we are the ones being forced to conclusively prove that it causes each one of these maladies to the Nth degree. Meanwhile, the shots are still mandated in the military, for health care workers, and for many others.
Nowhere is the principle of “unsafe until proven safe” applied more rigorously in the world of pharmaceuticals than products marketed to pregnant women and young children. Yet the shots and other COVID therapeutics were approved for pregnant women and children without running proper short-term, much less long-term, safety studies, regardless of the health status or risk factors of those people, including those who already had COVID.
In the FDA’s “Summary Basis for Regulatory Action on Comirnaty” – published nearly a year after the shot had already been administered and, in some cases, mandated upon pregnant women – the drug regulator stated plainly that proper information for use for pregnant and nursing women is missing. "Missing information: Use in pregnancy and lactation; Vaccine effectiveness; Use in pediatric individuals <12 years of age," the FDA divulged.
Incidentally, this disclosure is right next to the admission that Pfizer knew about both the risks of heart inflammation and vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease, the latter of which might be the culprit for recent trends of negative efficacy, with the vaccinated appearing to get sicker from the virus.
It should also be noted that in Comirnaty’s (Pfizer BNT162b2) purple cap package insert, the label states unambiguously that “available data on Comirnaty administered to pregnant women are insufficient to inform vaccine-associated risks in pregnancy.”
Then, of course, there is Pfizer’s informed consent document (p. 10), which states, "The effects of the COVID-19 vaccine on sperm, a pregnancy, a fetus, or a nursing child are not known."
That right there demonstrates that the pressuring and even mandating of the shot on pregnant women violates the Nuremberg Code, and anyone who claims that the vaccine has been affirmatively proven safe in pregnant women is publishing false information.
It is in that vein that I present the latest report on stillbirths and infant deaths in Iceland by local daily paper daily Frettin, based on new data from Statistics Iceland. Given that Iceland is a small nation of just 366,000, it is easy to pick up on sudden shifts in health outcomes, which makes the fact that there has been a precipitous rise in stillbirths in 2021 all the more alarming. In 2021, there were 17 stillbirths and 35 first-year infant deaths reported in Iceland, up from just 9 and 19 respectively in 2020. In other words, stillbirths and first-year infant deaths nearly doubled.
According to Frettin, when you factor in the number of births every year, the average stillbirth per 1,000 live children for the last nine years (2011-2020) is 2 per 1,000. The increase for 2021 over the previous nine-year average was 75%. The increase in perinatal mortality (includes both stillbirths and children who die within the first week) is 82% in 2021 compared to the average of the previous nine years before that. The number of deaths in infants for the entire first year increased by 100% compared to the average of the previous nine years.
We don’t know the cause of the increase, but we do know there was no increase in 2020 when we only had COVID has a novel public health crisis but did not yet have the shots on the market. We don’t know if the shots had anything to do with this increase, but we do know the shots have caused a ubiquitous disruption in menstrual cycles, we do know that the lipid nanoparticles are deposited liberally in the ovaries, and we do know that the lipid nanoparticles are hyper-inflammatory. Again, why should we have to wait years to study these safety concerns to take the shots off the market until they are proven unsafe, rather than removing them from the market until they are proven safe?
There are other concerning data points from two hospitals in Israel revealed by Josh Guetzkow via an Israeli FOIA request. In May 2021, Rambam hospital in Haifa, Israel, had 42 SBMAs (stillbirth, miscarriage and abortion), which was nearly double the average of the May total from the previous two years and 30% higher than the highest number of any month in the previous two years. Moreover, the rate among vaccinated women in that hospital was 34% higher than among the unvaccinated. Also, Sheba Medical Center, Israel’s largest hospital, experienced the highest SBMA count in June, right around the time of the vaccine take-up for pregnant women. There were 146 SBMAs that month, 30% higher than the average of the previous two years and 11% higher than the largest number of SBMAs for any month in the previous two years, which was 132 in March 2019.
To this day, not a single government has attempted to follow up on these safety signals and determine what is indeed causing these increases. We already know from Pfizer’s released documents that the company knew of thousands of maladies and injuries reported after the first few months of its vaccine campaign. Moreover, a confidential Pfizer document (p. 29) recently revealed that the company has not and will not conduct genotoxicity and carcinogenicity tests, which are standard for vaccine products.
Thus, they have no desire to find out whether the shots can cause mutations in DNA or cancers. Remember, one study from Sweden has already found “the spike protein localizes in the nucleus and inhibits DNA damage repair by impeding key DNA repair protein BRCA1 and 53BP1 recruitment to the damage site.” That doesn’t exactly sound like a product I’d want to give to those who want to have children until we have better studies.According to the Declaration of Helsinki on medical ethics, “Physicians may not be involved in a research study involving human subjects unless they are confident that the risks have been adequately assessed and can be satisfactorily managed.” This is not just any research study but one involving 2 billion human beings, with hundreds of thousands of pregnant women being used as lab rats before adequately assessing risks and after some risks are already apparent. It’s a new bio-medical paradigm of “mandate first, study never.”
