Antidepressant drugs are murdering babies before they're even born: SSRIs cause birth defects, miscarriages and complications

(NaturalNews) Big Pharma wants pregnant women to take prescription drugs, vaccine shots and even chemotherapy. It's the latest insanity from an industry that kills more Americans ever year than died in the entire Vietnam War. And the latest science reveals that antidepressant use during pregnancy is causing babies to be born with physical defects -- or sometimes not born at all because they're miscarried.

This disturbing new science published in the journal Human Reproduction was authored by Dr. Adam Urato, obstetrician and chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham, Mass., and Dr. Alice Domar, a psychologist and assistant professor at Harvard Medical School.

The study shows drastically increased rates of birth defects in children who are exposed to SSRI drugs (antidepressants) while in the womb. The risk of miscarriages also skyrockets with antidepressant drug use during pregnancy.

Study author Dr. Urato is also warning that at least 40 studies now link SSRI use during pregnancy with pre-term births.

The abstract of the study lays out the findings in clear language:

Antidepressant use during pregnancy is associated with increased risks of miscarriage, birth defects, preterm birth, newborn behavioral syndrome, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn and possible longer term neurobehavioral effects.

As The Telegraph reports:

The situation amounts to "a large scale human experiment", according to Dr Adam Urato, assistant professor of maternal-fetal medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. Drugs firms were overstating the benefits and underplaying the risks for the sake of profit, he claimed. Family doctors were failing to grasp the true dangers and tell pregnant patients of them, he argued.

Antidepressants double risk of babies being born with autism

"A recent study has further documented some doctors' concerns that the use of SSRIs increases the risk of babies being born with autism. This particular research indicates the antidepressants double the risk," reports DrugWatch.com

In addition, antidepressants offer no benefit to pregnancy outcomes! As stated by the study authors:

"There is no evidence of improved pregnancy outcomes with antidepressant use."

In other words, antidepressants deliver all sorts of risks, but virtually no benefits, especially considering that even the psychological "benefits" of SSRI drugs are completely fabricated by the corrupt pharmaceutical industry which routinely fabricates clinical trial data.

Mainstream media tries to downplay risk

The mainstream media is, of course, incessantly running cover for the toxic pharmaceutical industry. That's why instead of seeing headlines that warn about "birth defects" from SSRIs, you get headlines like this one from a local Fox affiliate:

"Antidepressants during pregnancy can be tricky"
(http://fox13now.com/2012/11/01/antidepressan...)

Tricky? The story then goes on to push the warped psychiatric "view" of these drugs, which is essentially that everybody needs to be medicated in order to be normal. And that includes pregnant women.

The entire charade is so sick and even criminal that it's hard to even watch. If an herbal supplement were causing birth defects, you wouldn't see the media reporting that decision about the herbal supplement are "tricky." Instead, you would see the media SCREAMING about how dangerous and deadly the supplement was, demanding the FDA to take immediate action to ban the substance and pull it from store shelves.

But somehow, when prescription drugs cause miscarriages and birth defects, it's all okay because the drug companies are involved.

Murdering babies is perfectly fine, you see, as long as Big Pharma and the psychiatric industry and pocketing some cash at the same time.

And don't forget: Vaccines are also being pushed on pregnant women now, even though throughout the history of medicine pregnant women were always warned to avoid vaccines due to mercury toxicity. But suddenly, the authorities and the drug companies want to inject pregnant women with as much mercury as possible.

It's not just mercury, either: As Natural News has just exposed in a shocking new article, even the CDC openly admits that today's vaccines are made with MSG, mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum -- on purpose!

And what's one of the most common side effects of all these toxic metals and chemicals in vaccines? Spontaneous abortions, of course.
