A concerning new report from the head cardinal of the Catholic Church in Kenya alleges that a WHO/UNICEF sponsored tetanus vaccination campaign may conceal an agenda of forced contraception for over 2 million Kenyan women.
In a move that is garnering international attention, the head of the Catholic Church in Kenya has raised suspicions about the World Health Organization and UNICEF's tetanus vaccine campaign in their country, which is exclusively targeting over two million Kenyan women of children bearing age (14-49), to the exclusion of males and those younger who may be at higher risk from lethal harm from the tetanus infection.[i]
The vaccination campaign began in September of last year, is in the second of a planned three phases, and now covers 60 districts in that country. The final round is slated to begin in September of this year.
As reported on March 27th in the StandardDigital, John Cardinal Njue is alleged the WHO/UNICEF tetanus campaign has been uncharacteristically shrouded from public awareness relative to other national health initiatives that are preceded by a public launch where the public has an opportunity to ask questions. A Citizennews.co.ke news story filmed testimony of John Cardinal Njue voicing his concerns, which can be viewed here.
According to the StandardDigital report, the Catholic Health Commission of Kenya sent a statement to newsrooms on March the 26th alleging that there has not been adequate stakeholder engagement both in the preparation and implementation of the campaign. The main questions the Church raised for discussion were:
1 - Is there a tetanus crisis on women of child-bearing age in Kenya? If this is so, why has it not been declared?
2- Why does the campaign target women of 14 - 49 years?
3- Why has the campaign left out young girls, boys and men even if they are all prone to tetanus?
4- In the midst of so many life-threatening diseases in Kenya, why has tetanus been prioritized?
Additionally, the statement read:
"Information in the public domain indicates that Tetanus Toxoid vaccine (TT) laced with Beta human chorionic gonadotropin (b-HCG) sub unit has been used in Philippines, Nicaragua and Mexico to vaccinate women against future pregnancy. Beta HCG sub unit is a hormone necessary for pregnancy"
The Church's concerns are not without legitimate basis in vaccine fact and history, with previous suspicions being raised over tetanus immunization campaigns in the underdeveloped world concealing a forced 'family planning' agenda.
Not only has a birth control vaccine been known to exist for over twenty years using tetanus toxoid as a carrier,[ii] but it was heralded in the mid-90's as "A new family planning tool to slow population growth." The development of a tetanus-based contraceptive vaccine began in 1975 by Dr. Gursaran Talwar, Director of India's National Institute of Immunology, and after $4.5 million of funding and 17 years later a working vaccine was created, whose mechanism of action has been described as follows:
"The vaccine works by "convincing" a woman's body that a11 is unchanged when, in fact, an egg has been fertilized. After conception occurs, a woman produces a hormone called human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) that helps to prepare the uterus for pregnancy. The prototype vaccine, made from hCG coupled to a biochemical carrier, neutralizes hCG by stimulating antibodies against the hormone. Without hCG the embryo can't anchor in the uterus, making pregnancy impossible. The biochemical carrier makes the hCG immunologically visible to women's immune system." [Source]
