Will Malia and SashaObama be TWO More Girls Put at Risk
by The HPV Vaccine, Gardasil
Malia Obama celebrated her 11th birthday over the Fourth of July weekend. The festivities included a Camp David birthday party with about 20 of her friends and as part of America’s first family, hosting 1,200 military families for a Fourth of July barbecue on the White House South Lawn.
As I looked at the happy images of Malia, Sasha and their mom, the formidable Michelle Obama, I still wonder WWMOD, What Will Michelle Obama DO? I first ask the question a few months ago as additional states seemed poised to mandate the HPV vaccine Gardasil for all school girls, some legislation targeting girls as young as the age of ten. In 2007, Virginia, the District of Columbia’s very close southern neighbor passed House Bill 2035 requiring that 12 year-olds girls be vaccinated for the sexually transmitted disease Human papillomavirus (HPV). So as Malia, and soon Sasha enter the targeted demographic, I again ask the question, WWMOD —What Will Michelle Obama Do?
No matter where you stand within the American, political color-spectrum, Reds and Blues all agree: Michelle Obama is a fiercely protective Momma. To my mind that is a very good thing. However as the Adverse Reactions to the HPV vaccine Garasil continue to mount, I find myself asking WWMOD? What Will Michelle Obama DO?
Like many moms out there she wants what is best for her girls. At 7 and 11years old, Sasha and Malia are in Merck’s TARGETED demographic. Thanks to some well-spent lobby-bucks several States mandated Gardasil vaccinations. The parents of those public school girls might not have the choices available to Mrs. Obama.
Several months ago, President Obama stated that his youngest liked PB&J sandwiches and she has a right to expect a safe sandwich. Sasha, Malia and every other American girl have a right to expect safe vaccines. MERCK is experimenting with the reproductive systems of an entire generation of young woman… so what, if anything with President Obama do to insure the safety of his as well as all the other girls of this nation?
NVIC Petitions White House and Congress to Investigate Gardasil
On February 9, the NVIC launched a petition and issued a national press release calling on President Barack Obama, his Administration and Congress, to investigate the fast track licensure and universal use recommendation of Gardasil in 2006, and the dismissal of more than 10,000 reports of Gardasil-related reactions, injuries and deaths to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System as a “coincidence” by federal health officials.
NVIC’s latest Gardasil risk report, which compares the number and severity of adverse events reported to VAERS through November 30, 2008, reveals that death and serious health problems such as stroke, blood clots, cardiac arrest, seizures, fainting, lupus and rechallenge cases are reported three to 30 times more frequently after Gardasil vaccination than after meningococcal (Menactra) vaccination.
Barbara Loe Fisher explains the significance of this fact:
“If the deaths and serious injuries reported after Gardasil were only a “coincidence,” there would be little or no difference between the frequency and severity of vaccine-related adverse events between two vaccines, if the vaccines were equally reactive, and the number of doses were roughly the same.
Gardasil and Menactra vaccines were licensed within a year of each other and recommended by the CDC for universal use in 11-12 year olds.
Although Menactra is given to boys and girls and has already been mandated in many states for high school and college entry, Gardasil is only given to girls and is not yet mandated.
Menatra is given as a one-dose series and, by February 25, 2008, the CDC reported that about 15.5 million doses of Menactra had been distributed in the U.S.. Gardasil is given in a three dose series and the CDC reported that, by July 2008, about 16 million doses had been distributed in the U.S.
This means that about 15 million doses of Menactra were given to about 15 million boys and/or girls and about 16 million doses of Gardasil – if every girl got three doses – were given to about five million girls.
It is individuals – not doses of vaccine – who collapse, convulse, become paralyzed, have heart attacks, develop lupus and other chronic health problems after being vaccinated. The fact that death and serious health problems are reported 3 to 30 times more frequently after Gardasil than after Menactra is highly significant and it is irresponsible for federal health officials and Merck to blow it off as unimportant.”
What Does Merck Have to Say About it?
It’s incomprehensible that the CDC, FDA, and Merck — the makers of Gardasil – cannot see the facts presented in this VAERS analysis, and choose instead to cling to worn-out propaganda slogans and pre-written advertising messages that fly in the face of reason.
In the hours before a resent CBS News broadcast, Merck addressed the differences between adverse events associated with Gardasil and Menactra as follows:
“It’s important to remember that the proven benefit of GARDASIL is that it helps prevent cervical cancer caused by the two virus types responsible for most cases of cervical cancer.
Nothing is more important to Merck than the safety of our products and we carefully monitor the safety of GARDASIL on a routine basis. Experts at the FDA and CDC also continue to review data and, as recently as four months ago, said “GARDASIL continues to be safe and effective, and its benefits continue to outweigh its risks.”
NVIC is not a medical organization and has a long history of raising concerns about vaccines that are in direct conflict with the opinion of leading medical experts. We encourage consumers to get reliable information about the safety of vaccines from www.cdc.gov.”
Spain Already Removed the Vaccine
Spain has, recently withdrawn 75, 000 doses of the HPV vaccine from their market, after two teenagers who received the shots were hospitalized.
Seems they weren’t as influenced by the drug company’s rhetoric as U.S. authorities, and are more concerned about the safety of their citizens.
Get Involved and Help Save the Daughters of This Nation
“In the past 27 years, the stories of death and brain damage that have been reported to the NVIC have never changed. Whether the vaccine victims are 15 months old or 15 years old, the stories are the same: a trusting parent took a bright, healthy child to a doctor for a routine vaccination and the child was never the same again.
The Gardasil vaccine was inappropriately fast tracked and licensed by the FDA and recommended by the CDC with too little attention paid to the reports of brain and immune system dysfunction that developed after vaccination in pre-licensure clinical trials.
That same cavalier attitude toward Gardasil-related deaths and serious health problems, which have been experienced by many girls and young women after licensure, is inexcusable.”
Most Americans have blindly placed their trust in the vaccine makers and in federal health agencies, whose responsibility is to ensure that drugs and vaccines licensed for public use are safe, effective and necessary.
However, over the years it has become very clear that those responsible for protecting your health are not looking out for your best interest and that of your children.
And if they won’t do it, then it is up to you and me to do it.
I urge you to sign the Investigate Gardasil Vaccine Risks Now! petition available on the http://www.NVIC.org web site that my team helped create for them.
If you believe strongly in NVIC’s effort to inform the public about these types of issues, you can support their cause by making a donation of $25 or more to NVIC and receive a gift of Barbara’s 2008 book Vaccines, Autism & Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic. Click HERE to make a donation.

“In 2009, I have a sense of déjà vu as the story of Gardasil vaccine plays out real time. There are striking parallels between how those operating the mass vaccination system reacted in the 1980’s to persistent reports that the DPT vaccine was harming more children than originally assumed, and the way they are reacting now to persistent reports that Gardasil is more reactive than it was originally assumed.
Assumption of safety is no substitute for proof of safety.
And turning away from human suffering in order to protect the status quo is not the way to run a government that needs the trust and support of the people.
In the 18th century, Queen Marie Antoinette looked down at a starving people pleading for bread to stay alive and said “Let them eat cake.” It is time for everyone in government, industry and medicine to take a different approach to persistent reports of vaccine injuries and deaths or risk metaphorically suffering the same fate that ended the monarchy in France.
In the 21st century, today’s peasants don’t have pitchforks – they have laptops, desktops, smartphones and the internet.”
I strongly urge you to join in petitioning our new U.S. administration and Congress to take a close, hard look at the HPV vaccine, to end the needless suffering of tens of thousands of young, bright, innocent girls.
