FDA Requests Meeting With Activists Exposing Gardasil Adverse Reactions


Christina England

Throughout history there have been strong women debating big issues and changing history, amongst them are Joan of Arc, Emrneline Pankhurst and Amelia Earhart. On the 12th March 2010 in an extraordinary move, six strong, brave women of the world will come forward to present their research, documents and findings involving probably the most controversial vaccine of all times Gardasil to the FDA. What they have uncovered does not make easy reading.

Calling themselves ‘Little Women with Big Voices’ they have been formally invited by the FDA to present their information. The women making the presentation on behalf of the parents whose daughters have died or have been injured by the HPV vaccines are: Karen Maynor; mother of the late Megan Hild, New Mexico; Rosemary Mathis: whose daughter Lauren was adversely injured, North Carolina; Freda Birrell; political activist and lobbyist, Scotland and the United Kingdom; Leslie Carol Botha; broadcast journalist, Colorado; Cynthia Janak: research analyst, Illinois; and Janny Stokvis: research analyst, Netherlands.

The press release released today, Monday 8th 2010 says

“Over 17,500 adverse reactions and 64 deaths have been reported to VAERS (estimated 1 to 10% of the population reporting). The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has posted 272 VAERS reports of abnormal pap tests post-vaccination. Reports of deaths and injuries are now coming in from the United States, New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain and India.

Birrell has compiled 40 pages of reports of deaths and injuries from the above countries for the FDA. Stokvis and Mathis have compiled data of vaccine injuries and deaths from VAERS. Botha is presenting studies on menstrual cycle evaluation to prevent vaccine injury – and the impact of aluminium on the endocrine system. Janak has researched vaccine ingredients and believes that she has found the reason as to why “healthy” girls have been injured or have died suddenly and unexpectedly within days weeks, months or potentially years after vaccination.”

According to Botha, it has been an amazing effort to mobilize a group of mothers and concerned women internationally to address the dangers of the HPV vaccines. A colleague of Botha’s, publicist Bobbi Cowan from Los Angeles joined the ranks providing here expertise in organizing a national media campaign. A press release was written and the group of six plus Stephen Tunley from Australia, whose daughter was injured by the vaccine, raised $600 to buy a major news release list through a professional news wire service. According to Botha, the group of ‘Little Women’ is now playing on the same marketing level as Merck and GSK. “They will be shocked at our savvy, expertise and determination to get our message out to the media and to the public.”

The presentation will be presented by the women to the FDA, on Friday, March 12 in the form of a power point presentation which will include 54 slides. Each member in the group will receive a file containing with over 236 pages of research, data and parental concerns. As soon as the presentation is over the data will be released to the public and media.

I have been told that the information contained in file will send shock waves around the world. There have been problems with this vaccine from the onset. Over the four years that Gardasil has been in use, the media has reported deaths, cases of Guillian Barre Syndrome, paralysis, seizures, blindness, problems with menstrual cycles, miscarriage and yet still this vaccine has been given to our children and women. Warnings have not been heeded and the problems have continued. This vaccine has now approved for use in males.

Merck has stated over and over that this vaccine is safe, the FDA and CDC have stated this vaccine is safe. This has been taken from the Merck website

“How safe is GARDASIL?

The safety of a vaccine is an important part of its story.

The common side effects include pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and fainting. Fainting can happen after getting GARDASIL. Sometimes people who faint can fall and hurt themselves. For this reason, your health care professional may ask you to sit or lie down for 15 minutes after you get GARDASIL. Some people who faint might shake or become stiff. This may require evaluation or treatment by your health care professional.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the FDA have reviewed all the safety information available to them. Based on data available to them as of May 2009, the CDC and FDA determined that GARDASIL continues to be safe and effective, and its benefits continue to outweigh its risks. In August 2009, the CDC reaffirmed its continued recommendation for vaccination with GARDASIL in females. In October 2009, the FDA approved the use of GARDASIL in boys and young men ages 9 to 26 to protect against 90% of genital warts cases.

For more information on GARDASIL, talk to your doctor or health care professional.”

Karen Maynor one of the women involved in the presentation has told me her daughter Megan died after using this vaccine. Megan’s story along with the many others is included on the website The Truth About Gardasil a site dedicated to the girls who have lost their lives to Gardasil a vaccine manufactured by Merck to help protect women against cervical cancer.

‘Truth About Gardasil’ was designed to remember the girls who have lost their lives but also to alert the public to the dangers of Gardasil. The mission statement is firm stating “This website is dedicated to the girls whose lives have been taken way too early because of this vaccine. It is also dedicated to their families who continue on in this fight. We must unite to get this vaccine off the market, together we CAN make a difference!”

In a recent interview with journalist Marcia G. Yerman, Huffington Post , Expert Dr Diane Harper outlines these issues when speaking about the pros and cons of Gardasil.

Harms of HPV Vaccination:
– Duration of efficacy is key to the entire question. If duration is at least fifteen years, then vaccinating 11-year-old girls will protect them until they are 26 and will prevent some pre-cancers, but postpone most cancers. If duration of efficacy is less than fifteen years, then no cancers are prevented, only postponed.
– Safety: There is at least one verified case of auto-immune initiated motor neuron disease declared triggered by Gardasil [presented by neurologists at the 2009 American Neurological Association meeting in Baltimore, Maryland). There are serious adverse events, including death, associated with Gardasil use.
No population benefit in reduction of cervical cancer incidence in the United States with HPV vaccination as long as screening continues.
– Incidence rate of cervical cancer in the United States based on screening is 7/100,000 women per year.
– Incidence rate of cervical cancer if women are only vaccinated with Gardasil is 14/100,000 per year (twice the rate of cervical cancer if young women vaccinated with Gardasil do not seek Pap testing at 21 years and the rest of their life).
– Incidence rate of cervical cancer with Cervarix vaccination is 9/100,000 per year– better than with Gardasil, but still more than with screening alone.
– Incidence of cervical cancer without screening and without vaccination is nearly 90/100,000 per year. The combination of HPV vaccine and screening in the U.S. will not decrease the incidence of cervical cancer to any measurable degree at the population level. Those women who do not participate in Pap screening, and who are vaccinated, will have some personal benefit for five years for Gardasil and 7.4 years for Cervarix (maybe longer), but they will not affect the population rates.

Boosters for Gardasil after antibodies wane makes the cost of vaccination escalate significantly, and cause implementation challenges to reach those women who might want to be revaccinated.”

Slightly different to what Merck are saying don’t you agree?

Jeffry John Aufderheide from VacTruth.com agrees that he feels that it is big bucks that is driving the vaccine saying :-

“In general, many are becoming wise to the fact that young women are being monetized with the cervical cancer vaccines. At $130.27per vaccine, Gardasil is the most expensive on the market. What we know from the documents made available is the Gardasil vaccine has been one gigantic experiment. The FDA is now between a rock and a hard place. Do they continue protecting the brand of corporations or will management recognize a moral responsibility to protect these young women from an experimental product?”

The USA Government seem to have few concerns about Gardasil and have pushed for its use.

The Republican Governor Rick Perry has been reported to have pushed for all girls in Texas to be vaccinated at 11 – 12 signing an executive order requiring this to be mandatory for entry to 6th grade.


A critical look at a new and controversial vaccine by Ralph W. Moss, PhD says

“Despite vocal opposition from some religious groups and worried parents, on February 2, 2007, the Republican governor of Texas Rick Perry signed an executive order requiring all 11- and 12-year-old Texas schoolgirls to be vaccinated with Gardasil. This is a newly approved vaccine, manufactured by the pharmaceutical giant, Merck, Inc. It is designed to prevent infection with four strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV): types 6 and 11, which cause genital warts, and types 16 and 18, which are among the 30 or more strains that are capable of causing cervical cancer.

By signing this executive order, Gov. Perry bypassed the Texas legislature, and thereby avoided an open political debate on this controversial issue. Grassroots opposition in the Texas legislature may yet reverse this unilateral decision (see below). But at this writing the order stands: any girl who wants to enter sixth grade next September in the Lone Star State will have to show proof that she has received three Gardasil injections before school begins.”

Of course if you trace Mr Perry’s activities the usual conflicts of interest emerge. He has been reported to have links to Merck including the following as reported in Rick Perry’s Ties With Merck Run Deep – KBTX.com

“One of the drug company’s three lobbyists in Texas is Mike Toomey, his (Perry’s) former chief of staff. His current chief of staff’s mother-in-law, Texas Republican state Rep. Dianne White Delisi, is a state director for Women in Government.

Toomey was expected to be able to woo conservative legislators concerned about the requirement stepping on parent’s rights and about signalling tacit approval of sexual activity to young girls. Delisi, as head of the House public health committee, which likely would have considered legislation filed by a Democratic member, also would have helped ease conservative opposition.

Perry also received $6,000 from Merck’s political action committee during his re-election campaign.”

Another report Larry Flynt.com describes Perry as snarky, scheming, and slimy.

However, from my research into vaccines this seems to be the usual dodgy pattern when you study the wheeling and dealing that goes on behind the scenes of the Governments we trust and it is easy to see why. It benefits Merck hugely to get officials on side if you consider the fact that every child vaccinated with Gardasil is worth $360 to Merck. If this vaccine becomes mandatory throughout the USA it is a nice little earner for the drug giants.

If the drug companies and Governments were honest with the public it would not take brave women of the world prepared to take risks to expose and uncover the truth. The truth would already be there and so to would our trust.
