March 12th 2010 saw six very special women from around the world, present documents and research about the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix to the FDA by request. Never before have the FDA turned to members of the public regarding vaccine safety but in an extraordinary move this is exactly what happened. Dubbed the ‘Little Women’ by the FDA the group presented evidence that will shock the world and could have the FDA eating their words.

The six women who had become increasingly concerned about the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix presented a power point presentation accompanied with documents showing the dangers of the HPV vaccines to the FDA. Their hope was to prove to the FDA that these two vaccines are so dangerous that they should be removed from the vaccine schedule as soon as possible.

Megan Hild passed away after an adverse reaction to a cervical cancer vaccine.

The women who were involved in this unusual move are Karen Maynor; mother of the late Megan Hild, New Mexico; Rosemary Mathis: mother of Lauren, adversely injured; co-founder of WWW.TRUTHABOUTGARDASIL.ORG, North Carolina; Freda Birrell; political activist,Scotland/UK; Leslie Carol Botha; women’s health educator and broadcast journalist, and founder of Holy Hormones Honey , Colorado; Cynthia Janak: research analyst, journalist writing for Renew America and founder of Only the Truth Illinois; and Janny Stokvis: research analyst, Netherlands.

The reports that were presented, detailed worldwide data, proving that women and young girls have suffered severe adverse reactions, including death, after being vaccinated with the HPV vaccines.

Detailed charts were shown to the FDA clearly outlining evidence of girls from around the world showing very similar adverse reactions after having these vaccines. Only a few of these adverse reactions have ever been listed by either manufacturer on their leaflets. It is my belief that Merck and Glaxo Smith Kline should to study the findings very carefully indeed.

There is a clear pattern from many countries, of girls suffering from the same side effects and yet up to now this fact has not been picked up, by either the committees who regulate our vaccines, or the Governments who sanction them. More worryingly the six women found that there were a huge number of deaths recorded on VAERS after HPV vaccines.

VAERS is the reporting system used in the USA for adverse events that happen after vaccination.

Strangely however, the system does not appear to be examined in great detail by the either Big Pharma or the Government and many adverse events are not even recorded at all, as it has now been discovered that some doctors are completely unaware of it’s existence.

The six women involved in the presentation to the FDA have been able to show research papers from top scientists and researchers showing that blindness can occur after the HPV vaccine . Papers on Menstrual evaluation were also seen for the first time as were papers on Vaccine and Autoimmune problems.

Janny Stokvis one of the women who researched the side effects of these vaccines after watching a YouTube clip said that she was horrified that so little has been done to protect women. She said she became involved completely by chance.

In September 2008 I was looking for music on Youtube and I ended up watching a video the father of Brooke Petkevicius made. Brooke died 14 days after her first dose of Gardasil from a pulmonary embolism or blood clot on March 26th, 2007. I was shocked by her story. In our family we have a rare blood clotting disease. I have had a pulmonary embolism twice myself. Few weeks later I saw a Dutch documentary about the marketing tactics of Merck. that alarmed me even more. My daughter was in the age group to get the HPV vaccine so I started to do my own research.”

She has since studied the VAERS reporting system and now firmly believes that the reporting system is only the tip of the iceberg because it only has a small number of the actual side effects from these vaccines on. She was shocked to learn that many of the doctors she spoke to had not heard of the reporting system and said :-

Adverse reactions do not always start within a minute after inoculation like some people think. A lot of physicians have never heard of VAERS or know how to file a report. I was surprised when I heard this the first time. Physicians do not agree with parents when they tell that they think theirs daughter got sick because of the HPV vaccine and do not want to file a report.Mothers who find their way to the Gardasil groups did not always succeed in getting a report filed at VAERS.

HPV-vaccine victims can be very ill, but tests can show-up to be normal. Girls who have seizures several times a day or who are paralysed get diagnosed as “Psychogenic”.

Parents are often told the illness of their daughter is not vaccine related This has to change, because too many girls are not getting the proper treatment yet.”

She said up until she looked into the HPV vaccines she had always believed in the Governments vaccine programmes but her confidence has now been badly shaken.

Rosemary Mathis whose daughter was changed after she had Gardasil vaccine and one of the six women told me she became involved with the group because she wanted answers. She says:-

My 12 year old daughter was disabled by Gardasil.  Her life as she knew it completely changed after her third vaccination.  She could no longer attend school, go to church, or live a normal life.  She was always in pain and we spent thousands of dollars and many hours going to doctors who could not help her. I spent countless hours on the internet researching how to treat my daughter. I quickly learned that I was not alone and many other parents were doing the same thing. Every night was spent researching trying to figure out what do to not only help my daughter, but many others. This led me to Gardasil Mom groups on Yahoo Groups, Twitter, and Facebook. That is where I met Marian Greene, another mother whose girl was affected that lives about 30 minutes from me. Her daughter was disabled also. Both our daughters were disabled by the exact same lot # 0067X.Night after night, we were trying to help the mothers figure out what to do and trying to comment on stories on the internet to warn others. We quickly learned that many of the girls stories are not recorded in VAERS. Either the parents do not know about VAERS and haven’t reported them or the doctors do not. I filed my daughter’s report in VAERS and then asked my doctor to after continuously expressing that the vaccine is what made her sick. The parents were struggling to find a way to express their stories and to find data. Each night, new victims were appearing on the boards with no idea of what to do.

That is when we decided to created WWW.TRUTHABOUTGARDASIL.ORG. The board represents the TRUTH as we the parents of the victims of Gardasil see it. It is a central repository used to house the girls stories for view by others, has the latest news, and has a Guardian Angel page by location to give the parents contacts in their area who may be able to help them. It has videos, other site links, a forum so you can talk to other parents/victims, etc. It has made it easier for parents to quickly identify side effects, treatments that may have helped victims, etc. It takes about one year worth of research off the parents and allows them to quickly identify what occurred and what can be done to help the victims.”

Since her research began Rosemary says she has met thousands of girls who have been adversely affected by the Gardasil and the Cervarix vaccines.

I asked Leslie Botha how the FDA had become aware of the six women and had asked the group to do the presentation.

Leslie said that originally Karen Maynor had contacted the FDA after her daughter had died after she had the Gardasil vaccine. Her letter to Dr Margaret Hamberg MD contained many reports and details of young girls who have either died like her daughter Megan, or had become seriously ill.

The reports contained in her letter do not make comfortable reading. She wrote how one child ‘Samantha Hendrix’ who had once been described as a ‘walking encyclopaedia’ has been left with no concentration and failing her exams.

Also In the case of young Samantha, she had a serious history of illnesses prior to vaccination, have you ever discovered if Merck carried out research on impaired immune responsiveness to establish if young girls with a medical history would be well enough to have this vaccine? In the case of Cervarix, GlaxoSmithKline did not carry out this research prior to the commencement of the vaccination programme in the United Kingdom. This young girl had many health problems before being vaccinated but now she is far worse off and what the future holds for her we just do not know. Perhaps, if more care and attention had been given by the pharmaceutical company in all of this, if they had taken more time to carry out the research into all aspects of safety and just had given it a few more years, exactly the same advice that Dr Harper gave to the UK regarding Cervarix, then perhaps these young ladies would not be so ill and I would not be writing to you today to ask for your help. With respect to Cervarix, many of the same “Gardasil” illnesses are occurring in the United Kingdom also so there appears to be a common thread that exists between these two HPV vaccines.”

She wrote.

She has a point, as on the Glaxo Smith Kline original GP advert it does state that ‘there are no data in the use of Cervarix in subjects with impaired immune responsiveness’.

Leslie said that the FDA do not just contact people but that they respond to letters. They contacted Karen and Karen knowing that she could not do what the FDA wanted alone asked the other women if they were prepared to help her.

Leslie says:-

The first meeting conference call was in September/October with Cynthia, Freda, Rosemary and myself – where we expressed our concerns.

There was a second Webinar in November that the FDA presented for us on how their organization operates.

It was at this meeting that a third meeting was initiated – to be held at first before the holidays so that we could present research and data that backed up our concerns.

It was at this point that we asked Janny to join us since she spent so much time going through the VAERS reports.

By agreement, the meeting was pushed back until after the holidays – until the presentation.

We were in discussion many times about how to proceed – and found the people in the Patient Representative Program Office of Special Health Issues - to be open, and supportive as they shared the guidelines for the presentation.

The FDA has just initiated “listening sessions” and our group was one of the first to participate in them.

It has been an honor and a very positive experience from beginning to end.

We started out by gathering data, Rosemary, Freda and Janny did a fabulous job of creating and presenting graphs, and outlines of VAERs deaths.Freda was in contact with women in Spain, New Zealand and Australia as she gathered reports of adverse injuries from the girls in these countries.

Cynthia and I kept coming from different angles on what was causing the problem with this vaccine – mine was on menstrual cycle influence and she was focused on histamine and IgE.  We spent hours on the phone searching for studies.We would then do searches on histamine and IgE and the menstrual cycle and that is when we realized that our differing angles were beginning to blend into one perfect storm. It was the peer reviewed study that came out on the blind girl and HPV that nailed this for us – and we realized that we had discovered the REAL DANGERS with this vaccine.

We were shocked and awed that we had come across something no on had ever considered that founded both of our concerns.”

The conclusion slide 52 in the powerpoint shows exactly what was discovered and one has to agree the implications this has on many girls is quite shocking.

During the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, the production of estrogen releases histamine. During the luteal phase the protective effects of estradiol sharply decline, the production of progesterone increases and the immune system becomes more easily compromised; succumbing to the overdose of histamine from three sources: L-Histidine in the vaccine, increased amounts of estradiol in the body from natural production plus environmental toxins (estrogen mimickers) and the body’s own natural production of histamine. The rise and decline in hormones; the rise and decline in immunity and the overproduction of histamine – may be a factor as to why the health of the girls adversely affected by the HPV vaccines is not improving.

Both HPV vaccines are VLP’s (virus like particles). This can be termed ‘molecular mimicry’ and when an antigen in a vaccine is structurally similar to an antigen in the host antibodies are produced that react with the host’s normal tissue.

Allergy sufferers with moderate to severe asthma have IgE levels greater than 1,000 U/ml.


Normal serum IgE levels in individuals without allergies is less than 70 U/ml. An increase in IgE means more free IgE is available for binding to the activated mast cells. More mast cell activation and degranulation may lead to an increased release of inflammatory histamine. This reaction also leads to TH2 cytokine and leukotriene secretion, resulting in systemic anaphylaxis in the form of allergy.

This proves an increased risk of injury due to an overload of histamine being released from the mast cells causing a more severe inflammatory response throughout the body. Tissue damage due to this process can cause hypertrophy of smooth muscles. Smooth muscles are evident in the heart. With the rechallenge to an already active immune response we could have more smooth muscle damage especially to the heart and damage to the Central Nervous System.

With all our research completed, due to the lack of safety testing in regards to hormone, histamine and IgE level effects due to challenge and rechallenge on the female and male physiology the risks of the HPV vaccines outweigh the benefits.”

To learn exactly how this conclusion was reached read the full powerpoint presentation and documents

Freda Birrell another member of the group became involved in 2009, when her friend wrote to her asking for her help, saying that her daughter Bridget had become injured after the Gardasil vaccine.

Freda said that she asked me to find out if Cervarix was having the same effect on British girls as the Gardasil vaccine. After research I found that both vaccines were having serious adverse reactions.

Freda feels disillusioned with the British and Scottish Governments she said:-

Both of the Health Ministers are too ready to come back with the usual information – any incidents which have occurred are either coincidental or part of population related illnesses.  At no time, to my knowledge or satisfaction, do they investigate any of these illnesses.  There are serious cases of arthralgia after vaccination with Cervarix and this condition has been researched and it is known that it is and can be vaccine related.  Sadly, our Ministers do not wish to recognise that fact.  There are many other serious illnesses which have occurred, eg a rare form of encephalitis, paralysis, blindness, seizures to name but a few. They are hiding their heads in the sand in the hope that it will all go away.  That will never happen where the lives of our young girls are involved.”

I asked Freda as she had studied both vaccines in detail if she felt that Cervarix was as dangerous as Gardasil. She said:-

For the most part Cervarix elicits a much higher percentage of adverse events in the initial days after inoculation over Gardasil.  The comparison suggests that Cervarix is much less safe than Gardasil.  High percentages of fatigue, headache and myalgia may also be initially construed as the flu and not Cervarix related and therefore would not be reported as an adverse event related to the vaccination until the symtpoms persist past the one week time frame for the flu,  Gardasil has incurred many deaths.  Only one girl to our knowledge has died following a Cervarix vaccination and her case was attributed to her underlying illness, cancer.  She was undergoing tests apparently at the time.  Whilst we cannot say that Cervarix caused her death, the authorities likewise cannot say with 100% proof that it didnt.  What we can say with 200% certainty is she should not have been vaccinated whilst undergoing medical testing”

Also discovered by the group was the fact that neither vaccine worked if the girls already had an HPV infection.

Slide 15 states:-

Conclusions: Evidence detailed here regarding the poor efficacy of both Gardasil and Cervarix on already infected women has to be investigated further. If this is occurring in established infected groups of women then what will be occurring in the bodies of adolescent girl’s who in many cases may already be sexually active and be infected at the time of vaccination? In the United States and United Kingdom, HPV SCREENING DOES NOT TAKE PLACE TO DETERMINE IF HPV INFECTION IS ALREADY PRESENT.”

The group had discovered that contrary to belief HPV is not only a STD but can be transmitted through other means. This was discussed on slide 9.

The next series of slides will address whether HPV is transmitted solely via sexual contact”.

Slide 9

In the first research paper there is growing evidence that HPV infection is acquired through non-sexual routes and that one potential route is mother-to-child transmission in the perinatal period; referenced as vertical transmission.

In the second paper, it was noted that HPVs have been detected in virgins, infants/children, and juvenile Laryngeal papillomatosis was shown to be caused by these viruses. It has been acknowledged that HPVs may be transmitted by other non-sexual routes as well.”

Another very important point raised was the fact that over 250 girls who have had the vaccine have since had abnormal PAP Smear tests. This was thought to be because this group already had the HPV virus when they had the vaccine.

We now await the FDA’s verdict on the impressive array of documents and factual information that this group of so called ‘little women’ put before them. Will the FDA acknowledge that far from the wonder vaccines that Gardasil and Cervarix were supposed to be, these vaccines were more like poison darts thrown at girls in a crucial stages of their sexual development? These vaccines were given to young girls in many different stages of puberty and at many different stages of their menstrual cycles. We are now left wondering if the manufacturers Merck and Glaxo Smith Kline ever even considered this when developing these vaccines.

I will finish with a dedication to Megan from the very special mother Karen Maynor who wrote to the FDA and started this whole series of amazing events.

She writes:-

Megan

As I stand here and watch as your brother receives his award for Academic Excellence I cannot help but think of you now and how proud I know you would have been. It was hard for him Megan as he hurts so much because you are not here. When we come together as a family for these occasions it never feels right. We miss you so…………………

We are working hard for you babe to get this information out there so others will know what can happen with this vaccine. Help others to become informed. To keep other moms and dads from having to feel this pain.

There are so many now that are fighting for ones just like you and for the many that are injured. You should see them, facing the GIANTS of the FDA and Big Pharma with no fear. They are strong because they have the truth. They never got to know you but they are fighting for you.

We love you and miss you……………………………………..”

    Most people make the mistake of believing the hype that vaccines prevent diseases, when in fact they have never protected anyone. Unfortunately, as long as there are people who believe that vaccines prevent diseases, this multi-billion business will continue.

    Instead of vaccination being abolished after Edward Jenner’s failed attempt to prevent smallpox with his cowpox vaccine, vaccination quickly evolved into a money-making racket and a means of promoting ill-health among civilians by means of injecting us with chemical and biological agents; hence the presence of mercury, aluminium, formaldehyde, foreign protein, squalene and infertility-causing agents in vaccines. None of these substances have anything to do with protecting our health.

    The claim that Gardasil prevents cervical cancer s ludicrous, as it hasn’t been around long enough to be able to observe whether it does or not. This vaccine is IMO much more likely to CAUSE cancer, as well as infertility, than do anything positive for women’s health.

    It was good to read that in New Zealand, a school has refused to take part in the Gardasil vaccination programme. Here is the link to an article about it:

    http://www.greystar.co.nz/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=4056&Itemid=43

    I sincerely hope that the rebellion against this disgusting vaccination programme will spread and that New Zealand (and the rest of the world!) will soon be Gardasil-free, and – one day – even totally vaccine-free!

    I say they knew it was going to cause collateral damage to our girls….They had to abort a clinical trial for a hemiplegic migraine treatment. They knew it was going to give these girls unrelenting migraines with neurological disorders. They covered it up in their clinical trials. By injecting the girls with toxic substances. This drug was dubbed help pay for vioxx. The Merck CEO’s should be tried for crimes against humanity. Then maybe the folks at the FDA and CDC who continue to push this vaccine as safe can fall behind if this poison is not recalled immediately.

    VACCINES ARE AN INVENTION OF GREED . THEY WERE DEVELOPED TO REPLACE MOTHER NATURE. IN SO DOING, THE RECIPIENT:S HAVE GIVEN UP THEIR ABILITY TO WORK WITH THE NATURAL ELEMENTS . IT IS TIME THAT ALL THE INHABITANTS OF THIS EARTH, RETURN TO THE BEGINNING. BACK TO THE BASICS, BACK TO MOTHER EARTH, BACK TO YOUR HEALTH,EVERYTHING YOU NEED MOTHER EARTH HAS THE RESOURCES, THE SOLUTION, THE HEALING, FOR MYSELF NEVER HAD A FLU SHOT NEVER YOU.? AND IM AOK YOU MUST ENHANCE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM, NOT DESTROY IT

  • Christina Waldman

    My daughter has been treated for respiratory infections (constant cough, recurrent “pneumonia”) since having the first two Guardasil shots a year-and-a-half ago before entering college. She tested negative for asthma last year. She was treated with inhalers and antibiotics, but a specialist said he did not think she had actually had pneumonia. I did not report a Guardasil reaction because I did not know the dates when she was seen and other information the VAERS online report form wants. She is 19 and I’ll have to get her consent to get her medical records. She does not link the vaccine to her health problems. It would be better if you could submit a paper report and just give them what you knew. The important thing is that she has been sick since having the vaccine, not the exact dates of vaccination. How can you be sure her sickness was caused by the vaccine? You can’t. You just have a strong suspicion.

    Wowie sha-kowie…that was awesome!

    You do incredible work here!!

    This page should be read by every Doctor in our country. Break the imperial conditioning!!

    Thank you for any and every comment that is constructive here and is working towards the over all plan of total-awakening. Come up by the steps for the stones of deceit and untruth are deep indeed. Walk slowly so you can breath and plan good answers and use good truths that will set us all free.

    Big love and big blessings.

    I thank God every day for His hand in leading me to these women as well as the women in the truth about gardasil yahoo group. I knew that the vaccine had hurt my daughter, as she was sick within 20 to 30 minutes after her first shot, and 9 months later, continues to vomit every day, has daily headaches, brain fog and PID. The doctor that injected this poison continues to say that the vaccine did not cause the problem. Although she did admit that she had a problem, and initially said she must have picked up a bug in the office that day. Quite a bug, I would say! Had I not found the support and the proof through this group of incredible mothers with such tenacity I don’t know what I would have done. Where I once worried that my daughter would get a cavity, I now worry how long her body can hold up to these side effects. The Pharmaceutical companies should be charged in a criminal court…as they should have in the Vioxx case. Shame on them all! Thank you ladies for all of the hard work and extreme effort in accumulating and researching the truth about gardasil. God bless you all!

    MY DAUGHTER ALSO ALMOST DIED FROM THE GARDASIL VACCINE. SHE HAD A BRAIN INFLAMATION AND SEIZURES AS WELL AS TEMPORARY BLINDNESS, SEVERE SKIN RASH AND BASICALLY GARDASIL HIT ALL OF HER ORGANS…
    TALKING TO ALL THESE WONDERFUL AND COURAGEOUS MOTHERS ON THE SITE “THE TRUTH ABOUT GARDASIL” HAS SHOWN ME I AM NOT ALONE!
    IT SADDENS ME THAT EVERY DAY THAT GOES BY MORE AND MORE GIRLS ARE GETTING VACCINATED BY THIS POISON AND WHOSE LIVES ARE IN DANGER!!
    WE NEED TO PUT A STOP TO THIS IMMEDIATELY!
    MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO ATTEND COLLEGE THIS YEAR AND I PRAY EVERY DAY AND WILL DO FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE FOR HER TO HAVE A FULL RECOVERY AND I PRAY FOR A FULL RECOVERY ON ALL THE GIRLS THAT HAVE BEEN INJURED FROM GARDASIL.
    SHAME ON YOU MERCK FOR KNOWINGLY INJURING OUR BEAUTIFUL GIRLS AND THUS FAR STILL DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT!!!!!

  • Randice

    My heart goes out to all the women. Excellent article, and excellent job to all the women taking on this battle, it will be a long one. It is important to note, that all clinical trials, with all vaccines, are done on healthy individuals only. It will not be discovered what will happen to immune compromised individuals until the vaccine is licensed and placed on the market for mass use; same with other adverse reactions.
    In looking through the adverse reactions, these are the same that are associated with every other vaccination. It is unknown whether an adverse event will happen immediately, within a week, month or even year(s). Please everyone, do your research before you subject yourself or your children to this atrocity, with Gardasil or with any vaccine. To the women fighting Pharma, my prayers are with you and on behalf of all women and men (approved now for boys), thank you.

    I am never happy to see anyone injured by anything – let me be clear. The experiences of these women give credence to what we (parents of children with autism) have been screaming about our children for years. Find the biomedical autism groups – we are healing our children – come find out how…now magic bullets, but definite biomedical solutions to ease the suffering and symptoms.
