A brand new peer-reviewed study published in Science, Public Health Policy, and the Law casts doubt on a CDC study that reportedly shows no increases in birth defects, abortions, and miscarriages following the jab. According to Medical Researchers Dr. Aleisha Brock and Dr. Simon Thornley in their study, the CDC gave “falsely reassuring statistics” to prove no heightened risk of miscarriages and other birth issues following receiving the COVID vaccine.
Additionally, the authors state, based on the data present in the CDC study itself, “at least 81.9% (≥ 104/127) experienced spontaneous abortion following mRNA exposure before 20 weeks, and 92.3% (96/104) of spontaneous abortions occurred before 13 weeks’ gestation (Table 4, footnotes).”
“Spontaneous abortions,” e.g. miscarriages, not only were present in unusually high numbers in the original CDC study, but, according to Brock and Thornley, were inaccurately tracked because most of the study participants took the vaccine after the pre-defined 20-week gestation outcome period. The outcome period is the length of time a study observes participants.
Brock and Thornley write “the [CDC] study presents falsely reassuring statistics related to the risk of spontaneous abortion in early pregnancy, since the majority of women in the calculation were exposed to the mRNA product after the outcome period was defined (20 weeks’ gestation).”
What this means is that Brock and Thornley found the CDC claimed the vaccine did not cause miscarriages by manipulating the data to inaccurately represent the chance of miscarriage rather than report on what the data truly found.
For example, let’s say Bob is trying to prove whether burglaries in his neighborhood are more frequent around Christmas time (October-December) as opposed to the rest of the year. After finding 100 burglaries took place last year, he found 20 occurred from October-December, 12 occurred in the summer, and the rest, or 68 of the burglaries, occurred from January to May.
What Bob found was that 68% of burglaries take place between News Years Day and The last month of school before Summer. However, instead of reporting objectively on the findings, Bob only reports on the burglaries that took place between the summer (June-September) and Christmas time (October-December), to “prove” most break-ins occur at Christmas time.
Clearly, Bob cherry-picked (e.g., manipulated) the data he liked and left out data that would disagree with his conclusion. Brock and Thornley assert the CDC also cherry-picked data. They also explain how.
Brock and Thornley state that of the 827 pregnant women who received the vaccine, 700-713, or between 84.6-86.2% of the women involved, received the vaccine outside the outcome period (e.g. “length of observation”) for the study. Like how Bob changed the data he used for his study, Brock and Thornley show the CDC added data by including women unqualified for the study.
They write “Although many more women in the study were vaccinated before 20 weeks, the outcomes of their pregnancies were largely not available and could not have resulted in a livebirth within the study timeframe. The available results of this cohort only captured outcomes in ~8% (96/1,132) and ~0.8% (14/1,714) of women in the first and second trimesters, respectively.”
What this means is, the CDC created a false conclusion by inflating the women involved in the study who could not be involved in the observation period to make the vaccine appear safe for pregnant mothers, when in reality, if the CDC had stuck with the original data, their study would have proven a link between the vaccine and pregnant mothers.
However, Brock and Thornley go one step further and show how the CDC’s data, when interpreted properly by focusing solely on the women who had actually received the vaccine within the observational period shows that more than 8 in 10 women had experienced miscarriages who had received the vaccine within the observation period of the study.
Nevertheless, Brock and Thornley note that the CDC study did correctly show that pregnant women who took the jab during the third trimester of pregnancy were not at increased risk of miscarriage. This means no found link between the vaccines and miscarriages for women in their third trimester of pregnancy. Brock and Thornley based their commentary on another study that found similar results.
