AFRICANGLOBE – Two UN organizations accused by Kenya’s Catholic bishops and doctors of secretly attempting to sterilize more than 2.6 million Kenyan girls and women have condemned the “misinformation circulating in the media,” and categorically denied the claims.
Meanwhile two pro-life organizations that have both claimed the World Health Organization was using the pregnancy hormone HCG to sterilize women in the developing world, have responded.
Human Life International told reporters it is compiling a dossier of academic reports to prove its extensive experimentation in this area. “We are stunned,” said Stephen Phelan, HLI’s director of mission communications, “to hear that WHO now claims ignorance of the existence of the vaccines that they produced, tested and promoted.”
As for the Population Research Institute, its president Steven Mosher said that he intended to have a research team in Kenya within two weeks to test women who have received the vaccine, against those who have not, for HCG. “We will test their blood and their urine for Beta HCG,” Mosher said.
UNICEF and the World Health Organization are the two UN agencies that have provided the Kenyan government with the anti-tetanus vaccine TT (for tetanus toxoid) for a campaign aimed at 2.6 million female Kenyans aged 14-49 and already administered to more than one million. This campaign, assert the bishops and Kenyan Catholic Doctors Association, is a secret scheme to sterilize the women to promote the UN’s longterm goal of reducing the population in the developing world. As long as these accusations were confined to Kenya, the two agencies ignored them, letting the Kenyan government defend the program.
But after reports on the controversy in North America, the UN began to defend itself. WHO’s Kenyan representative Custodia Mandlhate, said in a November 8 email, “This is an unnecessary controversy [sic] Immunization is one of the cost effective interventions for elimination and eradication of Vaccine preventable diseases.” She ignored the specific claims that traces of HCG had been found in the vaccine and dismissed all “unnecessary anti-immunization campaigns using prolife arguments.”
The same day UNICEF’s Kenyan representative Ketema Bizuneh with released a 1996 Lancet study purporting that there was no increase in miscarriages in the Philippines after the UN’s anti-tetanus campaign. Anti-tetanus campaigns there, in Nicaragua, and in Mexico were all opposed by Catholic organizations that claimed they were sterilization schemes in disguise.
Now Human Life International says it is culling its records for the old laboratory evidence that HCG was present in either the blood or vaccine samples in those 1990s anti-tetanus campaigns. HCG is a hormone produced by women during pregnancy. Injection beforehand induces a woman’s immune system to develop an antibody that reacts against a woman’s pregnancy, causing miscarriage.
“HLI is developing a dossier,” said Phelan, “in which we will present not only past findings from labs and medical professionals who corroborated the charges of abuse in developing nations, but also WHO’s own documents that show that they directed the development of the exact fertility regulation vaccines (FRVs) that they now seem to claim don’t exist.”
Indeed the joint UNICEF-WHO statement issued earlier this week tellingly ignores its well-documented past involvement in developing sterilization through vaccination. In particular, there is a 1993 WHO report on Human Fertility Vaccines describing a meeting the year before between 10 staff from the UN and World Bank and 10 women’s rights groups about the use of HCG to suppress developing world populations.
The joint UNICEF-WHO statement also asserts that “these grave allegations are not backed up by evidence,” but proceeds to admit the Catholic doctors have indeed presented evidence (to the Kenyan National Assembly last week) in the form of vaccine samples presented to reputable labs in Kenya and South Africa. All tested positive for the pregnancy hormone HCG.
Taking the same tack as the Kenyan government, the joint statement asserts that “testing for the content of a medicine, e.g. TT (tetanus toxoid) vaccine needs to be done in a suitable laboratory, and from a sample of the actual medicine/vaccine…and not a blood sample.” This statement glosses over the government’s refusal to conduct joint tests with the Catholic doctors, and the fact that both the government and the doctors used the same lab in one instance, but with opposite results.
What’s more, critics of the vaccination campaign do not trust the government and its UN allies to turn over genuine samples for independent testing (as the National Assembly has now ordered). That is why Stephen Mosher of the Population Research Institute, a longtime crusader against the UN’s population control agenda, plans to have his own testing team in Kenya shortly. “It is too easy to do a bait and switch on the vaccine,” he said. His team will test 25 women who have been vaccinated and 25 who have not. “We will get to the bottom of this.”
Like HLI, Mosher’s institute has no doubt that WHO is capable of what the Catholic bishops and doctors fear. “We know a sterilizing vaccine is the holy grail for them. They’d like to be able to sterilize women so that their own bodies become a defence mechanism against their pregnancies. We also know Talwar in India developed the sterilization vaccine back in the 1990s,” he said. Dr. Gursaran Prasad Talwar, the founder of the National Institute of Immunology in New Delhi, India, ran effectiveness tests on 188 women administered his HCG vaccine, and found 80 percent had been sterilized. Funding was provided by the International Development Research Center based in Ottawa after WHO withdrew “officially,” according to a 1996 PRI report.
