Kenya’s government is launching an investigation after allegations from Catholic bishops that two United Nations organizations have been sterilizing the population using the guise of an anti-tetanus vaccination program.
A statement released by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association says that the organization found a birth control hormone called beta human chorionic gonadotropin (b-HCG) in a tetanus vaccine that causes miscarriage. This vaccine was being administered to over 2.3 million women and girls by UNICEF and the World Health Organization since October 2013. A tetanus shot can typically protect a person for 10 years, and boosters are available for those who have had an injury.
According to Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi and spokesman for the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association said that 6 samples from around Kenya were sent to laboratories in South Africa, where they all tested positive for the HCG antigen.
When the ordinary tetanus shot is laced with b-HCG, the women develop immunity to both tetanus and HCG – a hormone that is essential for pregnancy. The body then rejects pregnancy, resulting in repeating miscarriages and risking long term sterility.
Dr. Ngare stated,
This proved right our worst fears; that this WHO compaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine. This evidence was presented to the Ministry of Health before the third round of immunization but was ignored.
According to Bishop Paul Kariuki, chairman of the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops’ health committee, the Ministry of Health has not tested the vaccine, trusting in its safety because it originated from WHO, an organization that is supposed to be credible.
Another member of the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, Dr. Wahome Ngare, calls this vaccine out as “immoral and evil” because it was given “without disclosing its contraceptive effect to the girls and mothers”. The committee is calling all Kenyans to avoid this tetanus vaccine campaign, telling the public that it is a population control tactic.
