British healthcare system now pushing pregnant women to get vaccinated for whooping cough
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) If you are pregnant, between the ages of 28 and 38, and a citizen of the U.K., the government-run National Health Service (NHS) wants to see you vaccinated for whooping cough as part of a new mass vaccination propaganda campaign that appears to be sweeping the industrialized world. Mimicking the same tactics used by the U.S. healthcare machine, NHS is now trying to scare pregnant women into getting the whooping cough vaccine by telling them that their babies could die without it, even though the efficacy of the vaccine has never been proven.
Also known as pertussis, whooping cough is reportedly on the rise throughout the U.K., with more than 4,700 confirmed cases of the disease, or more than four times the number confirmed in 2011, identified so far this year. Even though only nine babies in the U.K. are said to have died in 2012 as a result of whooping cough -- and these more than likely were the result of other complications related to weak immunity -- NHS is urging all pregnant women to get the vaccine in order to "pass on" immunity to their unborn babies.
Since most of the babies contracting whooping cough are too young to be vaccinated themselves, health officials have decided that vaccinating pregnant women will be just as effective at preventing the disease among young children, who are said to have the highest risk. But what these same authorities have not explained is precisely how the vaccine will accomplish this task, nor have they presented any evidence proving that the vaccine even prevents whooping cough infection in the first place.
Science suggests whooping cough vaccine responsible for spreading diseaseAs we pointed out in an earlier piece, the vast majority of whooping cough cases in these supposed outbreaks are among children that have already been vaccinated for whooping cough. Even after accounting for statistical variances between vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, the fact remains that vaccinated children are far more susceptible to developing whooping cough than are unvaccinated children.

To add to this, recent research has shown that the whooping cough vaccines are actually responsible for causing pertussis strains to mutate and become more virulent. With this in mind, it is logical to reasonably hypothesize that the whooping cough vaccine itself may actually be a primary culprit in the escalating number of disease cases being reported in the U.K., the U.S., and elsewhere.

Furthermore, the Australian government's Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee (PBAC), which specializes in researching the effectiveness of medicines, has determined that vaccinating parents against whooping cough provides absolutely no protection for unborn children against whooping cough.

"The PBAC, which is totally independent and very expert, has determined that there is no clinical effectiveness of this strategy," professor Chris Brook, Divisional Executive Director of the Australian Department of Health, is quoted as saying earlier this year to news.com.au. "There has been a national committee meeting to look at this and to make decisions on the basis of the best scientific evidence available ... the evidence is that the strategy has not been effective."
But none of this has stopped health authorities in the U.K. from creating needless panic and fear about babies dropping dead in order to sway pregnant women to get their useless whooping cough jab. It also has not stopped U.S. health authorities from erecting ridiculous propaganda billboards bearing inane statements like, "Not Vaccinated? No Kisses!" (http://blogs.discovermagazine.com), which send the false message that unvaccinated individuals are a threat to babies.
