death

In preparation for pro-choice and media attacks against Republicans and pro-life backers after Alabama’s strict anti-abortion legislation, the GOP released a confidential talking points memo via Republican Study Committee’s “Messaging the Minority,” warning of “gotcha moments” to “divide” Republicans.

Vice News obtained the document, which are labeled “off the record” and “not to be printed or reproduced by/for the media.”

The secret talking points were sent by the RSC to counter opposition and media attacks for the strictest abortion law in the United States recently passed by Alabama, a deep red state.

“Unfortunately, the media is attempting to use these new developments to create ‘gotcha moments’ for Republicans and a divide within our party,” the memo read, per the report.

“While some Republicans may disagree with the timing and/or particular legal strategies being implemented with the various state measures, it is critical our members speak with clarity and conviction about the broader issue of the sanctity and inherent value of every human life.”

Stressing the pro life belief “every single human life” is sacred and has an “inherent right to life,” the memo laid out four bullet points to counter the arguments for allowing exceptions for abortion in the cases of rape and incest:

  • While rape and incest are “traumatic” and “atrocities,” “we should not, however, give a death sentence to the innocent child.”
  • Abortion would be a “second violent act” to a woman victimized by rape or incest.
  • “We should provide these women with the resources and care they need to heal, not encourage more pain and suffering.
  • “Every single child should be afforded the opportunity to live, regardless of how they were conceived.”

The memo, before admonishing it to not be released to media, finished with a trio of links as “additional resources,” including “Debunking 9 myths surrounding Alabama’s abortion law.”

Formula One F1 - Monaco Grand Prix

MONACO (Reuters) – Jackie Stewart expects it to be business as usual on track for Lewis Hamilton in Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix despite the Mercedes driver’s grief at the death of Formula One great Niki Lauda.

The 79-year-old, a triple world champion and Britain’s most successful racer before Hamilton, told reporters in the harborside paddock that it was all about focus.

“Mind management is what I lived with, and I think it’s why I am alive today,” said the Scot, who this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of his first title.

“In my day there were so many deaths. At one point, one in three of us were going to die. I lost 57 people who were my friends.

“In those days, you had to manage that mentally in a very strict way. I suspect Lewis will handle it in exactly the same way as I would have done.”

Lauda, the Mercedes non-executive chairman who won championships with Ferrari and McLaren in 1975, 1977 and 1984, died on Monday aged 70.

Mercedes employees are wearing black armbands, with the cars carrying messages in his memory.

The Austrian and Hamilton were close, with Lauda instrumental in the Briton’s move from McLaren to Mercedes in 2013. Hamilton has been excused his usual media duties until the weekend.

Stewart agreed a victory in Monaco, where Lauda won twice for Ferrari, would be a fitting tribute even if he doubted the famously blunt Austrian would have cared about that.

“When you get in the cockpit, and the lights go out, you are a racing driver and driving a motor car which is the most sophisticated piece of motor engineering in the world.

“To take that to it’s absolute limit, Lewis Hamilton is totally capable of doing that this weekend in qualifying and in the race.”

Stewart recalled how he had felt in 1970 when he had to get back in the car 45 minutes after another Austrian friend of his, the sport’s only posthumous champion Jochen Rindt, was killed in practice at Monza.

“I will never forget it for the rest of my life,” he said. “I was crying when I got into the car, and I cried when I got out of the car, but I put in the fastest lap that I had ever done at Monza.

“People in the media said it was a death wish but it wasn’t. It was just removing the bad bit. But the bad bits came back as soon as you stop the car,” added Stewart.

“It’s not being selfish, not caring, it’s just that you’ve got a job to do and you do it. And I should think Lewis Hamilton’s got all the skills and talent to just do the same.”

Hamilton, a two-times winner in Monaco, was fastest in both practice sessions on Friday.

Stewart was speaking at the presentation of a one kilo gold coin featuring his likeness and donated by Rosland Capital for an auction on Friday to benefit his “Race against Dementia” charity.

THESSALONIKI, Greece (Reuters) – Printing campaign leaflets that look like funeral announcements and handing out coffin-shaped car fresheners, a Greek undertaker is using gallows humor to win votes in a city council election.

Konstantinos Baboulas has also written a slogan for the May 26 vote that plays on his surname which means “Bogeyman” in Greek, telling voters: “To support Baboulas, means to win life, otherwise … “

“The way to demystify death is with humor,” said Baboulas, who is seeking a seat on a municipal council in Thessaloniki, Greece’s second biggest city.

“We should all try to face our biggest fear, and humor is the best way to deal with it,” he said.

Despite his light-hearted approach, the 31-year-old father said his campaign was no joke. “All my life I complained about local government and then the moment came where an offer was made to me to quit moaning and do something,” he said.

Baboulas, who runs the funeral business started by his father, said he wants to bring entrepreneurial spirit to a public institution so it will better serve residents.

“We should view our municipality as a non-profit business … with the best interests of people in mind,” he said.

As for his name, Baboulas said it suited the family trade but success depended on delivering a good service. “Otherwise, it would have become our gravestone,” he said with a grin.

A tornado caused heavy damage in Missouri’s capital city as severe weather swept across the state overnight, causing at least three deaths and injuring nearly two dozen people as homes and businesses were ripped apart.

The National Weather Service confirmed that the large and destructive tornado moved over Jefferson City shortly before midnight on Wednesday.

“Across the state, Missouri’s first responders once again responded quickly and with strong coordination as much of the state dealt with extremely dangerous conditions that left people injured, trapped in homes, and tragically led to the death of three people,” Gov. Mike Parson said.

Missouri Public Safety said the three were killed in the Golden City area of Barton County, near Missouri’s southwest corner, as the severe weather moved in from Oklahoma, where rescuers struggled to pull people from high water. The tornado hit during a week that has seen several days of tornadoes and torrential rains in parts of the Southern Plains and Midwest.

The damage spanned about a 3-mile area in the state capital, Jefferson City Police Lt. David Williams said. About 20 people were rescued by emergency personnel, and although there were no reports of missing people, authorities planned to make door-to-door checks on Thursday, he said.

The weather service reported that a “confirmed large and destructive tornado” was observed over Jefferson City at 11:43 p.m. Wednesday, moving northeast at 40 mph (64 kph). The capital city has a population of about 40,000 and is located about 130 miles (209 kilometers) west of St. Louis.

“It’s a chaotic situation right now,” Williams said.

Williams spoke from the Cole County Sheriff’s office, where debris including insulation, roofing shingles and metal pieces lay on the ground outside the front doors. Authorities were discouraging people from beginning clean-up efforts until power is safely restored. Area hospitals set up command centers in case the need arises.

Missouri Public Safety tweeted that there was a possibility of more tornadoes and flash flooding.

Austin Thomson, 25, was in the laundry room of his complex of two-story apartment buildings to do his wash and noticed the wind started picking up. He saw sheets of rain coming down and a flagpole bend and then slam to the ground. The windows broke and he dove behind the washers and dryers.

After it calmed down, he walked outside to check the damage, and retrieved a stuffed animal for his daughter from his damaged apartment.

“There’s basically one building that’s basically one story now,” he said.

The weather service said it had received 22 reports of tornadoes by late Wednesday; some could be duplicate reporting of the same twister.

One tornado skirted just a few miles north of Joplin, Missouri, on the eighth anniversary of a catastrophic tornado that killed 161 people in the city. The tornado caused some damage in the town of Carl Junction, about 4 miles (6.44 kilometers) north of the Joplin airport, where several injuries were reported.

The severe weather was expected to continue Thursday as the storms head east. Forecasters at the Storm Prediction Center say parts of the Ohio Valley and the Mid-Atlantic could see tornadoes, large hail and strong winds. Forecasters say the area most at risk for bad weather Thursday includes Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

Storms and torrential rains have ravaged the Midwest, from Texas through Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and Illinois. Authorities urged residents of several small towns in Oklahoma and Kansas to leave their homes as rivers and streams rose.

Two barges broke loose and floated swiftly down the swollen Arkansas River in eastern Oklahoma, spreading alarm downstream as they threatened to hit a dam. A posting on the official Facebook page of the river town of Webbers Falls, Oklahoma, said the runaway barges posed a dire threat to its 600 residents: “Evacuate Webbers Falls immediately. The barges are loose and has the potential to hit the lock and dam 16. If the dam breaks, it will be catastrophic!! Leave now!!”

Authorities located the barges Thursday morning, stuck on rocks in the swollen river. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the barges were still tied together, and crews were working to secure them.

Still, the Interstate 40 bridge and a state highway bridge remain closed over the Arkansas River at Webbers Falls as a precaution, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. Over Memorial Day weekend in 2002, a barge struck the Interstate 40 bridge pier at Webbers Falls, causing part of the bridge to collapse into the Arkansas River. Fourteen people died after their vehicles plunged into the water.

Deaths from this week’s storms include a 74-year-old woman found early Wednesday morning in Iowa. Officials there say she was killed by a possible tornado that damaged a farmstead in Adair County. Missouri authorities said heavy rain was a contributing factor in the deaths of two people in a traffic accident Tuesday near Springfield.

A fourth weather-related death may have occurred in Oklahoma, where the Highway Patrol said a woman apparently drowned after driving around a barricade Tuesday near Perkins, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City. The unidentified woman’s body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office to confirm the cause of death. Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Keli Cain said she isn’t yet listed as what would be the state’s first storm-related death.

MONACO (Reuters) – Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton led the way for grieving Mercedes in first practice for the Monaco Grand Prix on Thursday.

The Briton, excused media duties following the death of Mercedes’ non-executive chairman and triple world champion Niki Lauda, lapped the treacherous street circuit with a best time of one minute 12.106 seconds.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was second fastest, just 0.059 behind Hamilton, with Valtteri Bottas third in the other Mercedes.

Charles Leclerc, hoping to become the first Monegasque to stand on his home podium since Louis Chiron in 1950, was fourth fastest for Ferrari with four times champion team mate Sebastian Vettel fifth.

Hamilton leads Bottas in the championship by seven points with the Mercedes drivers winning the first five races in one-two formation.

Mercedes, Ferrari and McLaren all carried tributes to Lauda on their cars with Mercedes team members also wearing black armbands.

Vettel wore a helmet modeled on one of Lauda’s, with the Austrian’s name on. Two of Lauda’s three titles were won with the Italian team.

The opening session was clear of crashes, although there were the inevitable near-misses on a tight and twisty circuit where cars skim the metal barriers and brush the unforgiving walls.

Red Bull’s Pierre Gasly had a close escape at the exit to the first swimming pool chicane, but ended up sixth fastest, while Robert Kubica spun at the exit to Casino Square but came to a halt without serious damage.

McLaren had a difficult session with Carlos Sainz failing to set a lap time and Lando Norris only 15th.

The top editor at the New York Times is predicting the death of local newspapers in five years, lamenting it as “the greatest crisis in American journalism.”

In remarks to the International News Media Association’s “World Congress of News Media” last week, Times executive editor Dean Baquet speculated “their economic model is gone.”

“The greatest crisis in American journalism is the death of local news,” he said, adding: “I don’t know what the answer is. Their economic model is gone. I think most local newspapers in America are going to die in the next five years, except for the ones that have been bought by a local billionaire.” 

According to Baquet, it’s crucial that “everybody who cares about news — myself included, and all of you — should take this on as an issue.”

“Because we’re going to wake up one day and there are going to be entire states with no journalism or with little tiny pockets of journalism,” he predicted.

“I’m not worried about Los Angeles and New York,” he added. “I don’t know what the model is for covering the school boards in Newark, New Jersey. That makes me nervous.”

According to INMA, Baquet also asserted the Times’ “power as a news organization rests in the fact that people know we try to get it right and that we’re not advocating.”

“The story we did about Donald Trump’s taxes, the two stories we’ve done, my honest belief is that, even if you don’t like us, you believe those stories,” he said. 

“I think if those stories had appeared in The Nation, which is an openly left publication that I happen to admire, it would not have had the same impact. One of my jobs is to protect the view that, if you like us or not, we try to be fair and we try to get it right and we’re not influenced by political perspective.”

An Associated Press analysis in March showed that over the 15 years, 1,400 towns and cities across America have lost a local news outlet. Additionally, the Pew Research Center reported last year that  newspaper circulation has steadily dropped for the past 30 years and ad revenues generated by outlets tanked dramatically in 2006 and continue to decline.

A shocking viral photo out of Chicago shows an accused murderer trying to cuddle with the baby she had torn from a pregnant teen she strangled to death days before.

The photograph shows Clarisa Figueroa, 46, posing with the baby she is alleged to have ripped from the womb of 19-year-old Marlen Ochoa earlier this month.

According to Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson, Figueroa and her daughter Desiree Figueroa, 24, have been charged with murder after Desiree confessed to helping her mother strangle Ochoa with a coaxial cable after luring her into their home with promise of free baby clothes.

Marlen Ochoa, 19

Their motive was to raise Ochoa’s child as their own after experiencing a prior death in the family, authorities said.

“Authorities suspect that Clarisa intended on raising Marlen Ochoa-Lopez’s baby as her own after her 20-year-old son died of natural causes,” NBC reported.

The baby is alive after being ripped from Ochoa’s womb, but is not showing brain activity.

“Ochoa’s body was dumped in a garbage can at the home in the 4100 block of 77th Place early Wednesday morning. Sources said she had been led to the basement, where she was strangled, and her baby was cut out of her womb. A family spokesperson confirmed the baby is in life support and has no brain activity,” CBS Chicago reported.

Ochoa’s husband Yovani Lopez said she did nothing to provoke the vicious attack.

“She did nothing to them. She was a good person. I don’t know what caused them to, knowing she had a family, a 3-year-old son,” Lopez said.

CBS Chicago removed the picture at the request of Figeuroa’s family despite it being a noteworthy news item.

However, The Daily Mail is still hosting the image.

During the #StoptheBans rally in Washington, DC on Tuesday, a pro-life high school student was surrounded and harassed by protesters who called for him to be “fixed,” and screamed in his face.

Boris Kizenko, a well-spoken student at Holmdel High School, seemed largely unfazed by the leftist agitators, but did admit he was afraid after some of them directed death threats at him.

Likely to become an internet meme (totally not calling for that to happen…😉) one protester can be seen and heard screaming at the top of her lungs in an attempt to drown out the pro-life teen.

“A lot of students are also afraid of speaking out because of things like this,” Kizenko said while a woman screamed into his ear with a megaphone.

The grown woman told the teenager, “If you’re afraid, little baby, then go the fuck home.”

“You’re an incel and you can’t get laid,” she yelled into the megaphone.

Boris then asked the cameraman, “I wonder if she agrees with the people that have threatened me, that have hit me and have attacked me just for being here?”

Next, a young person disguised as anti-Trump rapper Slim Shady approached Kizenko and screamed in his face, “Why don’t rape victims matter to you?”

However, the young man wouldn’t listen to Kizenko’s response and decided to continue yelling inches from his face and eventually inches from the camera.

This video can be added to the hours and hours of footage of liberals showing they’re incapable of engaging in civil dialogue, choosing to instead harass, intimidate and assault those they disagree with.

Infowars reporter Kaitlin Bennet had a similar experience Tuesday at a pro-abortion rally in Austin, Texas.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Gardasil Science Day Presentation Video — “Many of the things I’m going to say today would be slanderous if they were not true. And if they’re not true, then Merck should sue me. But Merck won’t do that. And they won’t do it because in the United States, truth is an absolute defense against slander.”

It has been 13 years since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supplied fast-tracked approval for Merck’s Gardasil vaccine—promoted for the prevention of cervical cancer and other conditions attributed to four types of human papillomavirus (HPV). The agency initially licensed Gardasil solely for 9- to 26-year-old girls and women, but subsequent FDA decisions now enable Merck to market Gardasil’s successor—the nine-valent Gardasil 9 vaccine—to a much broader age range—9 to 45 years—and to both males and females.

As a result of Gardasil’s expanding markets not just in the U.S. but internationally, the blockbuster HPV vaccine has become Merck’s third highest-grossing product, bringing in annual global revenues of about $2.3 billion. However, Gardasil’s safety record has been nothing short of disastrous. Children’s Health Defense and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. have just produced a video detailing the many problems with the development and safety of Gardasil. Please watch and share this video so that you and others may understand why Mr. Kennedy refers to Merck’s methodologies as “fraudulent flimflams.”

What follow are 25 key facts about Gardasil/Gardasil 9, including facts about the HPV vaccines’ clinical trials and adverse outcomes observed ever since Merck, public health officials and legislators aggressively foisted the vaccines on an unsuspecting public.

Inappropriate Placebos and Comparisons

  1. A placebo is supposed to be an inert substance that looks just like the drug being tested. But in the Gardasil clinical trials, Merck used a neurotoxic aluminum adjuvant called AAHS instead of using an inert saline placebo.
  2. Among girls and women who received the vaccine and among girls and women who received AAHS, an astonishing 2.3% in both groups experienced conditions indicative of “systemic autoimmune disorders,” many shortly after receiving Gardasil.
  3. Multiple scientific studies associate aluminum not just with autoimmune diseases but with autism, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and Parkinson’s disease as well as behavioral abnormalities in animals.
  4. Merck lied to study participants, falsely saying that the clinical trials were not safety studies, that the vaccine had already been found to be safe and that the “placebo” was an inert saline solution. [Source: The HPV Vaccine on Trial  (photo evidence, pp. 6 and 12).]
  5. When Merck conducted clinical trials for its next HPV vaccine formulation, Gardasil 9, it used Gardasil as the “placebo” in the control groups, again relying on the lack of an inert placebo to mask safety signals.
  6. The 500 micrograms of aluminum adjuvant (AAHS) in Gardasil 9 are more than double the amount of aluminum in Gardasil; this raises the question of whether Gardasil 9’s heavy reliance on the Gardasil trials for comparison is justifiable.
  7. The World Health Organization states that using a vaccine (rather than an inert substance) as a placebo creates a “methodological disadvantage” and also notes that it may be “difficult or impossible” to assess vaccine safety properly without a true placebo.

Millie Weaver experienced a medical nightmare when her newborn baby, Alma, was surrounded by doctors pressuring Millie to allow them to perform a spinal tap on her baby girl.

Inappropriate Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria

  1. In the only Gardasil trial in the target age group (11- and 12-year-old girls) with a control group design, fewer than 1200 children received the vaccine and fewer than 600 served as controls. This single trial involving fewer than 1800 children set the stage for the vaccine’s subsequent marketing to millions of healthy preteens all over the world.
  2. The Gardasil clinical trials had numerous exclusion criteria. Not allowed to participate in the trials were people with: severe allergies; prior abnormal Pap test results; over four lifetime sex partners; a history of immunological disorders and other chronic illnesses; reactions to vaccine ingredients, including aluminum, yeast, and benzonase; or a history of drug or alcohol abuse—yet Merck now recommends Gardasil for all of these groups.

Inadequate Monitoring

  1. Some of the study participants—but not all—were given “report cards” to record short-term reactions such as redness and itching. The report cards monitored reactions for a mere 14 days, however, and Merck did not follow up with participants who experienced serious adverse events such as systemic autoimmune or menstrual problems.
  2. Injured participants complained that Merck rebuffed their attempts to report adverse side effects. In numerous instances, Merck maintained that these “weren’t related to the vaccine.”
  3. Half (49.6%) of the clinical trial subjects who received Gardasil reported serious medical conditions within seven months. To avoid classifying these injuries as adverse events, Merck dismissed them as “new medical conditions.”

Cervical Cancer Risk-Benefit Ratio Not Worth It

  1. The median age of cervical cancer death is 58 years. Gardasil targets millions of healthy preadolescents and teens for whom the risk of dying from cervical cancer is practically zero. Interventions for healthy people must have a risk profile that is also practically zero.
  2. Annual deaths from cervical cancer in the U.S. are 2.3/100,000. The death rate in the Gardasil clinical trials was 85/100,000—or 37 times that of cervical cancer.
  3. With 76 million children vaccinated at an average cost of $420 for the three-shot Gardasil series, the cost of saving one American life from cervical cancer amounts to about $18.3 million dollars. By contrast, the value of a human life according to the Department of Health and Human Services’s (HHS’s) National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is $250,000—the maximum amount that the government program will award for a vaccine-related death.
  4. According to Gardasil’s package insert, women are 100 times more likely to suffer a severe event following vaccination with Gardasil than they are to get cervical cancer.
  5. The chances of getting an autoimmune disease from Gardasil, even if the vaccine works, are 1,000 times greater than the chances of being saved from a cervical cancer death.
  6. Women in Gardasil clinical trials with evidence of current HPV infection and previous exposure to HPV had a 44% increased risk of developing cervical lesions or cancer following vaccination.
  7. Women who get the Gardasil vaccine as preteens or teens are more likely to skip cervical cancer screening as adults, mistakenly assuming that HPV vaccination is a replacement for screening and that the vaccine will eliminate all risk.

Fertility Effects

  1. Accumulating evidence points to Gardasil’s potentially severe adverse effects on fertility, including miscarriage and premature ovarian failure.
  2. Merck never tested the vaccine for fertility effects. However, Gardasil and Gardasil 9 clinical trials showed high spontaneous miscarriage rates of 25% and 27.4%, respectively—significantly higher than the background rates of approximately 10%-15% in this reproductive age group.
  3. Polysorbate 80 and sodium borate (Borax) are associated with infertility in animals. Both are Gardasil ingredients, and both were present in the one clinical trial protocol that professed to use a benign saline placebo.

Post-Licensing

  1. In 2015, Denmark opened five new “HPV clinics” to treat children injured by Gardasil. Over 1300 cases flooded the clinics shortly after their opening.
  2. Since Gardasil came on the U.S. market in 2006, people have reported over 450 deaths and over 61,000 serious medical conditions from HPV vaccines to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
  3. Merck lied to VAERS about the case of Christina Tarsell’s death, falsely claiming that her doctor blamed a virus instead of Gardasil. [Source: The HPV Vaccine on Trial  (p. 144).]

The Vaccine That Should Never Have Been Licensed

As suggested in the conclusion to the 2018 book The HPV Vaccine on Trial, the rollout of Gardasil in 125 countries worldwide has illustrated—in an all-too-real and shocking manner—the phenomenon that prompted Hans Christian Andersen to write “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” Around the world, over 100,000 Gardasil-related adverse events have now been reported to the FDA and WHO, and accounts continue to multiply of “scandal, lawsuits, severe injuries, and deaths.” For almost 200 years, Andersen’s story has taught readers about the need to speak the truth, pay attention to evidence and listen to children. The rosy narrative manufactured for the dangerous Gardasil vaccine must not be allowed to hold sway any longer. It is time, in the words of the HPV Vaccine on Trial authors, to proclaim—loudly—that “the Emperor has no clothes.”

  2. Annual deaths from cervical cancer in the U.S. are 2.3/100,000. The death rate in the Gardasil clinical trials was 85/100,000—or 37 times that of cervical cancer.
  3. With 76 million children vaccinated at an average cost of $420 for the three-shot Gardasil series, the cost of saving one American life from cervical cancer amounts to about $18.3 million dollars. By contrast, the value of a human life according to the Department of Health and Human Services’s (HHS’s) National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is $250,000—the maximum amount that the government program will award for a vaccine-related death.
  4. According to Gardasil’s package insert, women are 100 times more likely to suffer a severe event following vaccination with Gardasil than they are to get cervical cancer.
  5. The chances of getting an autoimmune disease from Gardasil, even if the vaccine works, are 1,000 times greater than the chances of being saved from a cervical cancer death.
  6. Women in Gardasil clinical trials with evidence of current HPV infection and previous exposure to HPV had a 44% increased risk of developing cervical lesions or cancer following vaccination.
  7. Women who get the Gardasil vaccine as preteens or teens are more likely to skip cervical cancer screening as adults, mistakenly assuming that HPV vaccination is a replacement for screening and that the vaccine will eliminate all risk.

Fertility Effects

  1. Accumulating evidence points to Gardasil’s potentially severe adverse effects on fertility, including miscarriage and premature ovarian failure.
  2. Merck never tested the vaccine for fertility effects. However, Gardasil and Gardasil 9 clinical trials showed high spontaneous miscarriage rates of 25% and 27.4%, respectively—significantly higher than the background rates of approximately 10%-15% in this reproductive age group.
  3. Polysorbate 80 and sodium borate (Borax) are associated with infertility in animals. Both are Gardasil ingredients, and both were present in the one clinical trial protocol that professed to use a benign saline placebo.

Post-Licensing

  1. In 2015, Denmark opened five new “HPV clinics” to treat children injured by Gardasil. Over 1300 cases flooded the clinics shortly after their opening.
  2. Since Gardasil came on the U.S. market in 2006, people have reported over 450 deaths and over 61,000 serious medical conditions from HPV vaccines to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
  3. Merck lied to VAERS about the case of Christina Tarsell’s death, falsely claiming that her doctor blamed a virus instead of Gardasil. [Source: The HPV Vaccine on Trial  (p. 144).]

The Vaccine That Should Never Have Been Licensed

As suggested in the conclusion to the 2018 book The HPV Vaccine on Trial, the rollout of Gardasil in 125 countries worldwide has illustrated—in an all-too-real and shocking manner—the phenomenon that prompted Hans Christian Andersen to write “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” Around the world, over 100,000 Gardasil-related adverse events have now been reported to the FDA and WHO, and accounts continue to multiply of “scandal, lawsuits, severe injuries, and deaths.” For almost 200 years, Andersen’s story has taught readers about the need to speak the truth, pay attention to evidence and listen to children. The rosy narrative manufactured for the dangerous Gardasil vaccine must not be allowed to hold sway any longer. It is time, in the words of the HPV Vaccine on Trial authors, to proclaim—loudly—that “the Emperor has no clothes.”
