Despite being told repeatedly that COVID vaccines are “safe and effective” for virtually everyone in the world age 6 months and up, it turns out that not all officials are beating the same drum.
According to a recently updated report from the United Kingdom, COVID-19 shots are likely to compromise pregnancies, and is therefore advising against COVID shots for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Executive agency of Department of Health and Social Care in the United Kingdom says that “reassurance of safe use of the vaccine in pregnant women cannot be provided at the present time”
The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is an executive agency of the Department of Health and Social Care in the United Kingdom.
MHRA has been regularly publishing and updating its recommendations surrounding the COVID shots since December 2020, when the shots first rolled out.
In their most recent summary, updated November 2022, they maintain that due to an “absence of reproductive toxicity data,” women who are breastfeeding and pregnant should NOT receive the COVID vaccine.
They write: “The absence of reproductive toxicity data is a reflection of the speed of development [of a COVID vaccine] and its rapid development to meet the ongoing urgent health need. In principle, a decision on licensing a vaccine could be taken in these circumstances without data from reproductive toxicity studies animals, but there are studies ongoing and these will be provided when available.
“In the context of supply under Regulation 174, it is considered that sufficient reassurance of safe use of the vaccine in pregnant women cannot be provided at the present time: however, use in women of childbearing potential could be supported provided healthcare professionals are advised to rule out known or suspected pregnancy prior to vaccination. Women who are breastfeeding should also not be vaccinated.”
One hypothesis as to how and why COVID shots could be unsafe for current, and even future pregnant women could be related to the spike proteins produced by an injected person’s body.
The theory holds that the mRNA-induced spike proteins might actually have an antibody effect against placental proteins, compromising essential compounds needed for healthy placental development (although this theory has not been “proven” yet).
MHRA also points out other facts surrounding the research on known and unknown risks surrounding these mass-produced shots: Regarding “prenatal and postnatal development, including maternal function,” MHRA writes that “no such studies have been done”
Regarding “studies in which the offspring (juvenile animals) are dosed and/or further evaluated,” MHRA writes that “no such studies have been done”
Regarding “reproductive and developmental toxicity, fertility and early embryonic development and embryofoetal development,” MHRA writes that in “general toxicity studies, macroscopic and microscopic evaluation of male and female reproductive tissues showed no evidence of toxicity” and that “a combined fertility and developmental study (including teratogenicity and postnatal investigations) in rats is ongoing.” (In other words: the research isn’t done, and so far only research on animals suggests “no evidence” of reproductive harm).
When a recent study in Science Advances acknowledged that unusual changes in menstruation DO indeed occur following COVID injections for a significant number of women, the research was celebrated as vindication for women. But even these scientists couldn’t help downplaying their findings, stating that “changes to menstrual bleeding are not uncommon or dangerous” but that giving “attention to these experiences is necessary to build trust in medicine.”
