Irish teen girls taking on Gardasil manufacturers after suffering from long-term injuries caused by the faulty vaccines

Gardasil HPV vaccines

(NaturalNews) Teen girls and their mothers in Ireland are setting an example for how to build an influential movement to fight back against a mainstream vaccine consensus that pushes the dangerous human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine on girls as young as eleven.

The support group REGRET (Reactions and Effects of Gardasil Resulting in Extreme Trauma) has garnered significant media attention, support from major politicians, and has even had one member file a lawsuit seeking to have the license for an HPV vaccine revoked.

HPV is not a single virus, but rather a large family of related viruses. Most HPV viruses are completely innocuous, while a few varieties lead to genital warts and some can play a role in the development of cervical cancer. Two vaccines have been approved for HPV: Merck's Gardasil, which protects against two strains blamed for 70 percent of cervical cases, and GlaxoSmithKline's Cervarix, which protects against those strains plus two others blamed for 90 percent of genital warts.

Seeking justice for disabled daughters

REGRET was started by parents of girls who suffered serious adverse effects after being vaccinated with Gardasil as part of Ireland's school vaccination program. The group has recorded at least 100 instances of such severe damage.

Ireland added Gardasil to its school vaccination program in 2010, for girls aged 11 to 16.

REGRET has two major goals. One is to raise awareness about the risks of the HPV vaccine, to enable other teens and parents to make informed choices about vaccination. Judging by the number of media stories published and aired about the group, and the fact that mainstream politicians have raised their concerns on the floor of the legislature, the group is starting to have some success.

The other major goal of REGRET is to get assistance for their injured daughters. According to the group, many of the girls have suffered such severe side effects from the vaccine that they are unable to attend school regularly. Because their illnesses are poorly understood, many of the girls are not receiving proper medical care.

HPV vaccines a dangerous scam

One REGRET mother, nurse Fiona Kirby, has taken the fight all the way to Gardasil manufacturer Merck. In 2015, she filed a lawsuit asking the court to withdraw the license for Gardasil to be used in Ireland, and to issue an order barring the Health Products Regulatory Agency (HPRA) from including the drug in any national vaccine programs.

Kirby says her own daughter developed flu-like symptoms after receiving her first dose of Gardasil in 2011, but that the symptoms cleared up on their own. The symptoms returned after her daughter's second shot, but this time they came with muscle wasting nausea so severe that it led to weight loss. Shortly after, she was hospitalized with bilateral pneumonia. She now suffers from permanent disability and needs continuous care.

Serious side effects from the HPV vaccine are much higher than for other vaccines, warns Dr. Diane Harper, who has spent 20 years studying the virus and worked on the development of Gardasil. These side effects have included death.

Indeed, for women in Western countries with access to good medical care, the risks of the vaccine probably outweigh the risks of the cancer it claims to prevent, Harper has said.

This is because cervical cancer is very rare in Western countries, and has a very high survival rate if caught early, due to yearly Pap smear testing. Harper emphasizes that because the long-term effectiveness of the HPV vaccine has not been proven, vaccinated women still need to receive annual Pap smears.

Harper has also pointed out that although the drug is recommended for girls as young as nine in some countries, no safety or effectiveness tests have been carried out on girls under the age of 15.
