Recently I was asked to comment on the use of vaccines in America and around the world. I am familiar with the activities of medical centers "developing" vaccines on the Navajo Reservation in Tuba City, Arizona when I was in medical school and I questioned the ethicalness of giving very young babies the meningitis vaccine. I was scolded for questioning how well the young Navajo women understood the potential risk of injecting infants with the vaccine. I was just learning about blood/brain barrier and it seemed that babies were the most vulnerable.
Since medical school, I have become aware of numerous instances where pharmaceutical companies and federal agencies approach vaccination as a "business" activity rather than a "health promoting" activities. 1967-1978: The largest test on humans of Depo-Provera begins and is conducted for eleven years through the Grady Clinic in Atlanta, Georgia on 14,000 low income women. These “trials” were conducted on women human subjects without being aware of the fact that they were part of an experiment; and, the researchers deliberately did not inform the women participants that Depo Provera had grave side effects. Many women developed cancer and/or died during the trials, but these cases were not reported to the FDA. The director of the study, Robert Hatcher, further violated the law refusing to submit an annual report during the entire study. Record keeping on the clients was sloppy and more than 13,000 women had no follow-up.The African continent has been a theater for unregulated experimentation. Dr. Phillips’ fraudulent Navrongo research is routinely referenced in UN and US documents as valid family-planning policy.
On January 28, 2013, Israel put an end to the unethical use of Depo Provera after admitting that they coerced African women to use Depo Provera without consent and full understanding of harm.
