Consequently, vaccination may increase the risk of breaking immune tolerance against the fetus. This could theoretically result in pregnancy loss, restricted growth of the fetus and/or the placenta or in the development of preeclampsia.

Vaccine Increases Cancer Risk
Gardasil, the heavily promoted cervical cancer and genital wart vaccine that Merck, the CDC and AAP want to mandate for all 11 and 12 year old girls, will not only increase the risk of cervical cancer for some of adolescent girls but can also make them susceptible to infection from the multiple other strains of HPV. In addition, five women who got the vaccine around time of conception gave birth to babies with birth defects.
"A 17 year old was vaccinated with Gardasil when she was about one week pregnant. A subsequent ultrasound revealed that the fetus was positive for neural tube defect (a serious birth defect of the brain and spinal cord). A 20 year old female was vaccinated with her first dose of Gardasil during pregnancy and had a spontaneous abortion 10 days later." Vaccine Safety Manual by Neil Z. Miller. p375
"My wife and I are currently on active duty in the US Army. Recently, while serving in Korea, we were vaccinated against anthrax. Unknown to us, my wife was pregnant. Our daughter lived for approximately 2 hours before dying." Vaccine Safety Manual by Neil Z. Miller. p423
"In August the FDA acknowledged problems with the (anthrax) vaccine. The product insert was altered dramatically. It said the vaccine could harm people with immunity disorders, could cause a host of serious long-term adverse reactions and could already be responsible for six deaths and a number of birth defects."--Media Nov 2002
Cdr. Megan Ryan has found that women vaccinated for anthrax during the first trimester have a higher rate of birth defects in offspring than unvaccinated women. Apparently this research was compelling enough, despite an army study to the contrary, for the FDA in 2002 to change the pregnancy warning on the vaccine label from a C (no data on risk) to a D (data suggests increased risk during pregnancy). However, the data have not yet been published. Dr. Maria Araneta, also associated with the Naval Health Research Center and University of California, has shown that GW veterans are also likelier than controls to have children with certain birth defects.

With respect to the myth’s claim, “by 2002 no new
childhood vaccines with Thimerosal were being sold in the
U.S.,” this is also false because, among other Thimerosal-containing
vaccines that could be given to children in 2002, the
Thimerosal-preserved influenza vaccine, which, by its nature, is
a new vaccine every year, was effectively knowingly added to
the recommended vaccination schedule for pregnant women as
well as to the recommended childhood vaccination schedule in
April of 200228 at a time when all doses of the influenza vaccine
approved for “healthy children aged 6–23 months” were
Sixth, compounding the harm, in April of 2002, the CDC’s recommendation that the Thimerosal-preserved influenza vaccine be given to pregnant women who would be in their second and third trimesters of their pregnancies during the influenza season, thereby knowingly recommending the Thimerosal and mercury poisoning the developing child in utero when the risk of harm is even greater than it is postpartum and the results published in 197729 clearly found that Thimerosal-preserved influ vaccines that were given to pregnant women significantly increased (with a hospital-standardized relative risk of 2.0 or higher) their children’s risk of serious birth defects (cleft palate [RR = 7.1], microcephaly [RR = 2.3], and pyloric stenosis [RR = 2.0]).

Heather Adel My son started having seizures after his one month MMR. They were occasional and everyone tried to make me think I was losing my mind and imagining it. I did not want him to get two month shots but the dr talked me into it and that night he had 40 seizures in my arms. Every day after that he had 7 or 8 seizures that lasted 10 minutes at a time. He is on heavy doses of Topamax to control the seizures, which I think he started having seizures while I was still pregnant and on Reglan. At 8 months along, I changed OB-GYN and they immediately took me off the REGLAN and I was able to carry him full term but had been having contractions prior to switching dr's. Then when they immunized him it triggered something and they told me he would not live to be 5 and be mentally handicapped. He is making his milestones and shocking all the dr's. Nobody knows what exactly is wrong with him. He is still on high doses of Topamax and without it he is a limp lifeless baby. With it he is achieving miracles. I have not allowed them to immunize since his two months immunizations and I am so scared to do so especially with all the stories out there. He is my 4th baby and all of my other children, all girls, have been immunized with no problems, but something about my son is different. They have already started saying he will be on the spectrum and he is 2.5 years old. I really feel like there has to be other moms who had REGLAN while being pregnant and their children are autistic. Just like the Thalidomide Babies there was over 8000 babies born with deformed limbs etc., before they realized the cause was something they took during pregnancy, I will bet my life that Reglan is causing Tardive Dyskensia which is being misdiagnosed as autism.
Jacqui Brewer My son was vaccinated in the womb and on the first day of life. I immediately asked what they had done to my baby. I noticed within a few hrs of birth he had terrible anxiety, he was pinching and scratching. Got worse with every round, 4 months intussusceptions, 9 months he had this pink painful rash from head to toe which he still has, Dr said I didn't dry him well enough after the bath lol. 12 months he was always sick, 15 months saw signs of neurological damage got dx of classic autism. 2 yrs old he was delayed, but speaking words- mama dada outside hungry etc. Went to the Dr I asked about the autism and vaccines- she said he already has autism he can't get more autistic. Then he did. He started having terrible bowel problems, self injurious behaviour, anxiety, destructive behaviours etc. He still has all of these today. He is dx with low functioning autism and severe mental retardation he is almost 7 yrs old and functioning at 9-12 month old level with sensory and motor skills, but physically like a 3 yr old. H just learned how to open drinks and put on a seatbelt also shaking his head yes and no but inconsistently. This was a result of chelation, first with dmsa, then EDTA and now zeolite which is working well but I have to give quite a bit. Powder works as well if not better than the liquid, but the liquid is easier to give.
