The Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops suspects that birth control may be included in a tetanus vaccine campaign that is being directed exclusively at women of childbearing age in that country and not to the rest of the population who are also at risk.
LifeSiteNews is reporting the disturbing story about a vaccination campaign being run in Kenya by the World Health Organization and UNICEF that is suspiciously similar to campaigns in the Philippines, Nicaragua and Mexico where the vaccine was laced with an agent that effectively sterilizes women.
As the bishops explain in a March 26 statement to the press, the vaccine may contain Beta human chorionic gonadotropin (b-HCG) which can cause permanent infertility.
“When injected as a vaccine to a non-pregnant woman, this Beta HCG sub unit combined with tetanus toxoid develops antibodies against tetanus and HCG so that if a woman’s egg becomes fertilized, her own natural HCG will be destroyed rendering her permanently infertile. In this situation tetanus vaccination has been used as a birth control method.”
The bishops believe the current tetanus vaccination campaign bears the hallmarks of programs that have been carried out in other countries and state that “they are not certain that the vaccines being administered in Kenya are free of this hormone.”
The bishops are demanding to know why the campaign is targeting women of 14-49 years and has left out younger girls, boys and men. They would also like to know why tetanus has been prioritized amidst so many other life threatening diseases in Kenya. Is it because there is a tetanus crisis among women of child-bearing age? If so, why has this not been publicly announced?
The current campaign has had limited public input, which is unlike other national health initiatives where the public are permitted to ask questions. Nor has there been any consultation with the Catholic Church, in spite of the fact that it runs an extensive network of health facilities in the country, including 54 hospitals, 83 health centers, 311 dispensaries and 17 medical training institutions.
Considered to be a massive human rights violation, the bishops of Kenya are demanding more information about the program being conducted in their country and promise that they “will not shy away from raising moral questions on matters affecting human life.”
