Pregnant women used to be advised against putting anything that was not natural...into their bodies, especially substances which were not tested. The medical system in general, advises against many safe herbs in pregnancy yet it allows and even encourages mercury, squalene, formaldehyde, among many other questionable substances, to be injected into a pregnant woman's body. We need to demand to see the LONG TERM studies which prove that these vaccines have never caused a miscarriage, still birth, infertility or health consequences to the baby and mother.
The following excerpt from the link below states that if pregnant women have miscarriages after vaccination that we must not correlate it with the vaccine and that the miscarriage would only be coincidence. We know that miscarriages occur in nature but to disregard any miscarriage which occurs after vaccination ...as a coincidence.....is utter madness! Is there to be no investigation or study of those who do miscarry after vaccination? Why take this risk in the first place....especially when there isn't any real threat of deadly disease! Where are the short or long term studies which prove that this particular vaccine is safe to give a woman in any trimester of pregnancy? We should also be questioning the age groups being targeted for recent vaccines....and we should be questioning when repeated shots are given in a series as some of the antifertility vaccine literature states that repeated booster shots must be given for the desired goal of infertility to be reached.
"Current Status:Because of the known risks swine flu poses to pregnant women, the CDC advises women to receive flu vaccination during any trimester of pregnancy. The CDC's stance on flu vaccination in pregnancy is that there is no evidence that flu vaccinations cause miscarriages, and that it's important not to assume that miscarriages occurring after H1N1 flu vaccination were directly caused by the vaccine simply because of the correlation in timing. Pregnant women are a high-priority group for vaccination and prenatal care providers are being urged to promote the vaccine."

Abstract: Birth control vaccines both would increase the choice of methods open to women and men and additionally would offer specific advantages, including the development of vaccines that are unlikely to disrupt the menstrual cycle or cause the side-effects associated with oral contraceptive (OC) use. For a birth control vaccine to be acceptable for use in human beings, it must meet several criteria: the antigen must be unique to the reproductive target; the antigen must have a fertility-related function that can be blocked by antibody or is susceptible to cell-mediated immunity, and alternatively, the function should be located on a cell that can be lysed by complement; an acceptable level of effectiveness should be achieved by no more than 1 or 2 injections for the primary immunization, with booster injections at intervals of no less than 6-12 months; and the vaccine must undergo sufficient testing in animals to ensure its safety for longterm use.
For the vaccine to be widely acceptable, its effects need to be reversible. Before a fertility-regulating vaccine can be envisaged for widespread use in men or women, animal models must be found for thorough testing of toxicity, teratogenicity, effectiveness, duration, and reversibility of immunity and specificity for the target. Theoretically, the mammalian reproductive system is susceptible to immunological intervention at several points. Many reproductive hormones, as well as several antigens could be isolated from the ovum, sperm, embryonic tissue, and fetal tissue, could be candidate targets. Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a major candidate for vaccine development.
The World Health Organization's (WHO) Special Program of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction, through its Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation, has been supporting research on a synthetic vaccine directed against the last 37 amino acids of the C-terminal end of the beta hCG molecule. A 2nd approach, being followed by the National Institute of Immunology, New Delhi, and the Population Council, New York, involves developing a vaccine against the entire beta chain of the hCG molecule. A prototype vaccine using the beta subunit of ovine luteinizing hormone emulsified with Freund's complete adjuvant has been studied extensively in female primates by the Population Council, but as yet there is no evidence of acute or chronic health hazards in this heterologous immunization model.
The development of a vaccine based on sperm antigens will require considerable basic research. Interference with fertility could occur at several points: during sperm production in the testes, during sperm maturation in the epididymis, or during interaction with the egg in the female reproductive tract. Most research on ovum antigens is directed towards the zona pellucida, the acellular, gelatinous layer surrounding the ovum. It is estimated that vaccines that interfere with sperm function and fertility will be available for human testing by the early 1990s.
