A team of European researchers have determined that birth rates in 19 European countries declined sharply toward the end of 2021 following peak COVID-19 vaccine uptake earlier that year in the spring. The research, compiled in August 2022, found that decreased birth rate patterns persisted all of the countries represented in the data, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, Portugal, Spain, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Iceland, Northern Ireland, Montenegro and Serbia.1
Switzerland experienced an especially extreme drop in birth rates that exceeded that of both World Wars, The Great Depression and the commencement of oral contraceptives.1
COVID Vaccine Effects on Reproductive Health Still Uncertain
The long-term effects of the COVID vaccines on reproductive health are still largely unknown. Public health professionals stated in 2021 that doctors were still learning how the vaccine affected reproductive health and that there was “no denying that evidence is very limited,” also citing that reproductive concerns were a leading concern among people who were hesitant to get vaccinated for COVID.2 3
Studies showing vaccine safety in pregnant women surfaced years after widespread COVID vaccination began. An October 2022 systematic review and meta-analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) stated that “COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy was not associated with increased risks of peripartum adverse outcomes, including preterm birth, small size for gestational age, low Apgar score at five minutes, cesarean delivery, postpartum hemorrhage and chorioamnionitis.”4
The same report, however, also stated that “pooled evidence from large studies regarding neonatal and maternal outcomes of COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy is scarce.”4
Global Study Shows Effects of COVID Vaccines on Menstrual Cycles
A regular menstrual cycle is a hallmark of reproductive and overall health in women, yet a copious amount of women’s concerns around major changes in their menstrual cycles following COVID vaccination were dismissed or written off as conspiracy. But a global study eventually confirmed a link between COVID vaccination and irregular menstrual cycles.5
Alison Edelman, MD, MPH, the study’s lead investigator and professor of obstetrics and gynecology and division director of Complex Complex Family Planning at the OHSU School of Medicine said of the study findings:
Menstruation is woefully understudied, which is troubling considering it is a key indicator of fertility and overall health.6
Birth Rates Decline as Immunization Schedule Grows
While the average woman had five children just 70 years ago, today that number has been halved, leading to speculation about what may be causing the decline in birth rates around the world. After Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, the number of vaccines added to the CDC recommended childhood vaccine nearly tripled, which meant that most states added those recommended vaccines to vaccine mandates for children to attend daycare and school.7
The 1986 Act gave vaccine manufacturers partial liability protection for failure to warn, but not for product design defect, which was eliminated by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 in a split decision in Bruesewitz v Wyeth.8
Birth rates are continuing on a downward trend in conjunction with increased routine vaccinations administered to babies and adults alike. There have been no large, long term studies to investigate whether or not the federally recommended child and adult vaccination schedules are impairing fertility. The DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis) vaccine insert, for example, states, “INFANRIX has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential or for impairment to fertility.”9
Pfizer did include pregnant women in their limited mRNA COVID vaccine clinical trials and safety monitoring before the FDA granted the company an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to distribute the vaccine in the U.S., including to pregnant women. However, of the pregnant women involved in a small study, 270 reported a vaccine injury. Pfizer only followed 32 of the women, and of those cases, 28 unborn babies died. Pregnant women were not included in the phase 3 trials of messenger RNA (mRNA) COVID shots that were approved in the United States and the European Union. 1 4
Despite a lack of safety studies to prove the safety of the mRNA COVID shots for pregnant women or those trying to conceive, doctors and public health officials continue to reassure the public that these pharmaceutical products are indeed safe, including for those women.
To date, the manufacturer’s insert for FDA-approved COVID shots explicitly states that it has not been tested for the potential to impair male fertility. In one-third of couples experiencing infertility challenges, the problem is with the man, according to the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). Updated statistics on infertility in America, namely following widespread COVID vaccination, are unavailable.10

Damn, if I pushed a food product to market that killed or harmed even one in a hundred people, they’d shut down my business and stack me with a lifetime of liability. Vaccine manufacturers do the same thing and even worse, no problem, forget about it.
How much more evidence do you need? Repeat after me; safe AND effective. Keep on reporting statistics in a never ending circular holding pattern where no corrective actions ever actually happen. It’s like some Phizer exec approves all these articles. Where is the call for prosecution and a country wide boycott? These are well organized polished cartels, and we should detain investigate and prosecute everyone involved. They never tell on each other because not a single one of them ever faces justice in a court room. Otherwise thousands of these criminal participators would sing like birds.
Geez all they have to do is look at VAERS and multiply by 100. They don’t know because they don’t want to know. This bio weapon is meant to disable and kill not cure.
This can only be hugely beneficial, in view of the overpopulation of planet Earth. What can be more damaging, both socially and environmentally, that an ever-expanding population? Are living conditions not more important than family size? This is a clear case where both options are mutually exclusive: as David Attenborough remarked several years ago “we have overrun the planet”. Only the assorted superstitions (religions) stand to benefit by mindless breeding, because all such brands of indoctrination inevitably expect the followers to indoctrinate the hapless offspring in the parents mindless beliefs. The producers and promoters of these so-called ‘vaccines’ deserve Nobel prizes for curbing the planet’s headlong rush to self-destruction. Remember how the Australians solved the problem of being overrun by rabbits?
I could not disagree more. Healthy people might prove very able to come up with methods of providing for themselves despite there being many of them. The “godlike” arrogance of thinking one can determine the course of humanity to such an extent that you are able to conduct a depopulation scheme and it be helpful is damnable hubris. Your eagerness to discard belief in God and to dismiss it as superstition is telling. I could easily guess that many sharing your mindset cherish the thought that you can become “gods” yourselves and that it is okay to do so by any means necessary, completely ignoring the possibility that you are not achieving your goal but rather discarding the very design of the Creator who made man in His image.

The most disturbing aspects of the current situation are that we (Americans) cannot seem to have dispassionate discussions about vaccines. This is particularly true of COVID’s Mrna vaccine. Personally, I started reading at a very young age and the books available to me were mostly my dad and mom’s medical texts. I was taught to reason and analyze whatever was presented to me and collect data until I was satisfied enough to decide. We need to STOP the control of the narratives by the pharma companies. I suspect that we will be horrified in a couple more years when the outcome of this rush to vaccinate with a lightly-tested new technology.
As far as my concern goes, I wanted to point out a couple of things:
Are Covid vaccines safe and effective? NO, they are NOT safe and effective!!!
Risks far outweigh benefits!!
Those who are vaccinated and boosted still get Covid!!!
Not enough studies are being done on pregnant women, children, infants to my best of knowledge.
Wake up America. Do the research!!! Be FULLY INFORMED. Don’t take the word from the news media or even politicians. You CANNOT just rely on news media as a source of information.
The eugenics movement financed the founding of the School of Public Health at Carnegie Mellon. The MPH Mantra – Sacrifice Some for the Good of the Whole – underpins the epidemiology of. our vaccination program.
Epidemiological analysis of the Francis Field Trial of the Salk Inactivated Polio vaccine proved the Salk Vaccine absolutely safe. The only reported reaction came in the so called Cutter Incident and all arose within 14 days of vaccination of recipients and weeks later in their contacts…. The epidemiological analysis of IPV in the Francis Field Trial excluded all cases of polio that arose within 14 days of administration to recipients and counted later cases in Placebo injectees as being caused by wild Polio.
Problematically the placebos were injected with trypsin a pancreatic chemical the allows Polio virus to infect non-neural cells. Retrospective analysis shows that the Cutter Incident and Francis Field Trials had the same rate of reaction due to Salk vaccine. All recipient cases of polio in the Cutter incident and Francis Field Trial arose within 14 days in recipients and subsequently spread to and paralyzed close personal contacts. This is expected since the Cutter vaccine was actually produced by Lilly – one of the two producers of the Francis Field Trial vaccine. The other vaccine maker for the Francis Field Trial – Parke Davis – started epidemics in Boston, New Hampshire and Wisconsin in the summer of 1955.
Current Salk vaccine is injected with synthetic tripsin (M199) to make it more effective…but you will never get an epidemiologist to acknowledge the Acute Ascending Flaccid Myelitis (the classic definition of polio) is being caused by the current Salk vaccine.
Jonas Salk testified before Senator Kennedy in regards to the Vaccine Compensation Act that there had been no reactions to his vaccine in 450 million doses administered. Salk lied. Kennedy. a Massachusetts Senator knew better…in 1955 the Massachusetts Medical Board withdrew it’s recommendation for vaccination with Salk vaccine….AFM virus EV-68D is 80% identical to Type 1polio virus in Salk vaccine. The Salk Type 1virus was the most virulent Salk could find and the M199 synthetic trypsin has the ability to split or cleave the strands of polio.
So if Salk vaccine is not absolutely safe as advertised – then none of the vaccines are risk free.
An oversight Agency such as the NTSB is to FAA needs to be formed to oversee the Childhood Immunization program in the United States and unlike the FDA and CDC should not be controlled through the Walter Reed Army Institution of Research as was Salk. Francis. Sabin and Alexander Langmuir whom CDC anointed as the Father of Epidemiology.
Unfortunately, these facts may indicate the “vaccine” is working as designed.
I’m a medical professional. I am NOT against vaccines that are safe and effective. The problem is that our FDA isn’t doing its job making sure that drugs are thoroughly tested for safety before turning them loose on the public.
People don’t know that Big Pharma pays the FDA budget. They are compromised. The foxes are running the hen house.
We all suffer because of it.
