A recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by associate professor of medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, and professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health, Dr. Harvey Risch, commented on the mixing of political partisanship and science as it relates to the experimental COVID shots. By being unwilling to fully acknowledge and investigate the observed adverse effects from the shots, they worry that people could needlessly suffer or die, as well as lose confidence in public health officials. To these esteemed doctors, and many others, "the risks of a COVID-19 vaccine may outweigh the benefits," particularly in low-risk populations. Yet that is not the message being pushed out of the White House, CDC, or mainstream media. In fact, anyone who dares to raise a concern is almost immediately censored and slandered.
But, in a sign of hope and sanity, more and more doctors and scientists from around the world are gathering data and starting to understand the potential dangers posed by the shots. They are speaking out and sounding the alarm, often banding together to file complaints, petitions, and open letters with public health authorities. Others are posting videos and doing interviews with independent media and media outlets open to dissenting views. Some are taking their message directly to the people through in-person events. We should hear them out. If the former CEO of Boeing or Delta's lead mechanic said they discovered a significant flaw in the design of a new plane, wouldn't we want to know what they have to say? Might we hold off on taking that flight? Why have people been so willing to dismiss concerns about something that has already killed several thousands of people in the US this year alone and injured many more?
For most people, I suspect the answer is because the information is not reaching them. Certainly, Google is doing a bang-up job hiding results related to vaccine concerns. Platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are diligently removing anything that could promote "vaccine hesitancy." If critical information does cross your screen, a follow-up internet search will likely tell you that the concern has been debunked, neglecting to mention that the so-called "fact checkers" are just regurgitating the official narratives. Suddenly, people whose credentials would be lauded if they agreed with the establishment are ridiculed and marginalized as quacks, hacks, or conspiracy theorists. As noted by Drs. Ladapo and Risch, "Stigmatizing such concerns is bad for scientific integrity and could harm patients."
Voices of scientific integrity
Lest you think the medical community is unanimous in their support of the COVID shots, here is a sampling of accomplished and credible doctors speaking out and taking action in support of medical ethics and patient safety. They are all clear that they are not against vaccination, but believe these experimental shots deserve great caution, particularly as the deaths and adverse events accumulate.
In February 2021, a coalition of hundreds of doctors and scientists from 30 countries, referred to as Doctors for COVID Ethics, petitioned the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to "demand that approval for use of the gene-based vaccines be withdrawn until all the above issues have been properly addressed by the exercise of due diligence by the EMA." Given the gravity of their medical concerns, they believe:
"the approval of the COVID-19 vaccines by the EMA was premature and reckless, and that the administration of the vaccines constituted and still does constitute 'human experimentation', which was and still is in violation of the Nuremberg Code."
This same group filed expert testimony in a lawsuit that challenges the EU’s authorization of the use of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine on children of 12 years and older. It explains why: (1) vaccination of children against COVID is unnecessary, (2) efficacy claims are misleading and potentially fraudulent, and (3) Pfizer, the EMA, and the FDA have systematically neglected evidence of danger.
Additionally, Doctors for COVID Ethics sent a letter to tens of thousands of doctors in Europe following four scientific discoveries based on three independent research studies in the US and a paper from Denmark demonstrating that the vast majority of our bodies (99%) recognize and respond to SARS-CoV-2 and its variants with protective antibodies "upon the slightest viral challenge, even without vaccination." The implication is that SARS-CoV-2 is not new or materially distinct, such that the vast majority of our bodies can handle it. Further, they warned that introduction of the shot and the resulting production of the spike protein can trick the body into attacking itself, particularly after the second shot, risking a cytokine storm that "will amplify the damage to the lungs, liver and other organs of our body."
In April 2021, 93 Israeli doctors signed a joint letter of protest calling on the chiefs of the Ministry of Health to refrain from administering COVID vaccines to children. They claim, "it cannot be ruled out that the vaccine will have long-term adverse effects that have not yet been discovered at this time, including on growth, reproductive system or fertility." These potential long-term effects could impact everyone, not just children.
In June 2021, a group of 27 clinicians, researchers, and consumer advocates filed a formal Citizens Petition asking the US FDA to "slow down and get the science right," before issuing full approval of the COVID shots. They are calling for the proper studies and analysis of evidence to determine longer-term safety and efficacy, as well as "a more thorough assessment of spike proteins produced in-situ by the body following vaccination—including studies on their full biodistribution, pharmacokinetics, and tissue-specific toxicities."
Also in June 2021, a community of physicians from across the US, called America's Frontline Doctors, filed its Complaint to Halt COVID Vaccine in Children and Motion for Temporary Restraining Order Against Use of COVID Vaccine in Children. They make the case that the shots are "unapproved, inadequately tested, experimental and dangerous biological agents that have the potential to cause substantially greater harm than the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the COVID-19 disease itself." They have been bringing their Uncensored Truth tour across the country to get their message to the people.
In July 2021, America's Frontline Doctors also joined forces with attorney Thomas Renz to file a lawsuit in federal court based on a sworn statement by a government insider that the government is covering up “at least 45,000" injection-related deaths in the US. This is consistent with statements from a whistleblower at the CDC.
Also in July 2021, an alliance of independent Canadian doctors, scientists and health care practitioners calling themselves Canadian COVID Care Alliance drafted a petition to the Canadian Government asking the government to "suspend the use of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant women, children, youth, and adults of child-bearing age, until adequate short and long-term safety trials are completed and published in peer-reviewed journals."
Other doctors and professional groups formalizing their concerns include:
- Evidence-based Medicine Consultancy Ltd
- Coalition of UK doctors organized by Health Advisory Recovery Team
- Children's Health Defense
- UK Medical Freedom Alliance
There are also several doctors and scientists speaking out independently to raise concerns. Notably, the inventor of the mRNA technology used in some of shots, Dr. Robert Malone, is being vocal about his concerns about safety. He makes the important point that the "FDA elected during this phase of emergency use authorization to not require that the drug manufacturers rigorously capture adverse events and efficacy signals." Yet, even as the inventor of the technology, the foremost expert on this technology, he is being censored. As he said, "We can’t get to scientific truth if we can’t discuss things."
Dr. Peter McCollough is another leading voice, who initially organized around prevention and early treatment of COVID and is now focused on raising awareness of the COVID shot agenda and resisting coercive vaccination. His qualifications are numerous and impressive and he is declaring his "medical authority" to stop the plan to "put a needle in every arm." He had this to say of his colleagues,
“And doctors, good doctors, are doing unthinkable things, like injecting biologically active messenger RNA that produces this pathological spike protein into pregnant women. I think when the doctors wake up from their trance they’re going to be shocked to think what they’ve done to people.”
Viral immunologist and associate professor Byram Bridle called for caution after reviewing Pfizer's biodistribution study and discovering the spike protein may not stay in the immediate injection site as originally thought but rather circulates through the body. He said:
"the COVID spike protein [from the shot] gets into the blood where it circulates for several days post-vaccination and then accumulates in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands and in 'quite high concentrations' in the ovaries," where it can cause damage.
Unfortunately, other doctors are finding the same thing.
Information is good for our health
Even if these dissenting doctors are correct about the dangers of the shot, it doesn't mean that everyone who took it is going to be compromised or die. There is a lot that determines our individual health. But it is our right to know what we are being asked to put into our bodies. This is especially true for those who are being forced to choose between getting the shot and maintaining their employment.
The information that people need to make informed health decisions is starting to be exposed, thanks to the efforts of brave medical professionals such as these acting in the public interest. This is happening despite robust efforts to silence them. The public is starting to wake up that we cannot trust the conflicting and confusing messages coming out of the government and mainstream media. As suggested in the Wall Street Journal op-ed, policy is overtaking science. Said another way, science is being used to justify policy regardless of whether the science is sound. It is biased based on its context and the agenda behind it.
It is important that we allow for discourse and the full exploration of alternative perspectives and emerging data. That is how we will know what the real effects are of the shots. To stifle and stigmatize scientific and academic debate and rush indiscriminately into injecting the world population, especially our children, with something that has so many unanswered questions is perilous and irresponsible. The doctors who are speaking out care about our safety. We should support them in supporting us.
