Anti-abortion group slammed for spreading lies about vaccinations

Anti-abortion group slammed for spreading lies about vaccinations February 20, 2021

ANTI-ABORTION fanatic Bernadette Smyth, above, is known for saying stupid things such as ‘Jesus is in the womb of every pregnant woman.’ 

But she’s in the news this week over a different issue: COVID-19 vaccinations.

The former Northern Ireland beauty counter assistant who has, “thank God,” never lost her interest in fashion, make-up and sparkly things, has been blasted by the World Health Organisation for using her position as head of Precious Life to spread dangerous information that’s putting “people’s lives at risk.”

Irish News reports that Precious Life, based in N Ireland, has issued leaflets warning people against getting immunised due to concerns the jabs are “rushed” and that excess deaths are reportedly linked to the jab – but do not provide evidence to support this.

The group also incorrectly claim the vaccines are “developed using cell lines from aborted babies” and that they could affect fertility.

And it states that government guidance advises against pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding receiving the jab, when this is not the case.

In a statement to The Belfast Telegraph, WHO said:

Based on what we know about the mRNA vaccine, we don’t have any specific reason to believe that there would be risks that outweigh the benefits of vaccination for pregnant women.

WHO said of the “infodemic” surrounding vaccinations:

We need to prevent, detect and respond to it, together and in solidarity. Misinformation and disinformation put health and lives at risk, undermine trust in science, in institutions and in health systems and are hindering the response to the pandemic.

Smyth this week denied their leaflet contained misinformation and said her organisation had been “discredited.”

In fact, she’s accused the Telegraph of spreading “fake news” and insists that the only lives that are being put at risk by WHO are those of babies.

Smythe says on the Precious Life website:

The World Health Organisation is one of the largest promoters of abortion in the world. At the beginning of this COVID-19 pandemic the WHO made the false claim that killing babies by abortion was an ‘essential service’.

Yet this is the same organisation that claim our leaflet puts lives at risk.

Precious Life has produced a leaflet exposing the horrific reality that cells lines from aborted babies were used in the testing and development of COVID-19 vaccines.

Our leaflet correctly quotes from Government guidelines which stated the vaccines should not be given to pregnant women or those who are breastfeeding, and women should wait at least two months after a second dose before trying to get pregnant. The guidelines also stated the Government did not know whether the vaccine has an impact on fertility.

Northern Ireland Health Minister Robin Swann issued a statement that hit out at those spreading “unsubstantiated claims” in relation to fertility. He insisted the jabs have been approved as safe and effective by independent experts.

Dr Edward Morris, President at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, has also moved to reassure women that there is “no evidence” to suggest vaccines will cause infertility.

Claims of any effect of Covid-19 vaccination on fertility are speculative and not supported by any data. There is no biologically plausible mechanism by which current vaccines would cause any impact on women’s fertility.
