“Experts” and Doctors are now uniting against pregnant patients who are reluctant to take vaccines. Many pregnant women feel uncomfortable taking a vaccine while pregnant, clearly fearing chemicals invading a fetus. But that hasn’t stopped Doctors and “experts” from pushing the vaccine agenda, specifically, Tdap, which they recommend for diphtheria and pertussis. And they’ve gathered around a new study seemingly making vaccines OK for pregnant women.
According to healthday.com.
“The vaccination can be given at any time during pregnancy as it is not a live vaccine,” said Dr. Tracy Adams, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y. “This study adds to the growing body of evidence that suggests the safe use of inactivated virus or bacterial vaccines or toxoids in pregnancy in order to prevent disease in both mother and child.”
The study at the center of the controversy was published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association (here). The idea that Doctors and “experts” would push pregnant women into vaccinations is nothing short of criminal. The focus of pregnancy should be nutrient density, not chemicals and potential side effects from any vaccines. To pitch this as a health infusion is disturbing and irresponsible. That said, the vaccine pitch to pregnant women is a growing trend because it opens up an entirely new demographic of customers. The revenue being lost from pregnant women trying to do the right thing for their babies is likely substantial. So it only makes sense that this study would make headlines now.
