David Rothscum Reports: Is Procter and Gamble funding a mass sterilization campaign?
[link to davidrothscum.blogspot.com]
It is little known but well documented that major self proclaimed philanthropic organizations have been involved in covert sterilization, carried out through vaccination campaigns.
The method, as explained in the description of this patent on the invention works by causing the female body to make antibodies against it's own pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin, HCG. The body's immune system is fooled into seeing one of it's own hormones as dangerous and if done correctly will make antibodies against it for years. Antibodies against this important hormone have been proven to render women infertile, and even IVF therapy won't allow these women to give birth to children. It's difficult to cause the human body to make antibodies against one of it's own hormones. The way this is done according to the patent earlier mentioned is by linking a part of the HCG hormone, called beta hCG, to a carrier, a toxic chemical the immune system will react to. The one specifically mentioned by the patent is the tetanus toxoid. The patent dating back to 1994 says only a single injection is required to sterilize someone, but references similar previous versions that require up to 4 injections. This newer version is far more effective, a single injection made enough antibodies in rats to keep them infertile for months, without any signs of the level of antibodies dropping.
Vaccines like these are used against people who aren't aware about the fact that they are being sterilized, possibly for the rest of their lives. There have been countless examples mentioned in different media of women receiving tetanus vaccinations and suffering violent and repeated miscarriages as a result. The BBC documentary "The Human laboratory" published in 1995 interviewed a woman who was given a tetanus vaccine that ended up sterilizing her and other women in her community. The full transcript can be found here, I've posted an excerpt below:
NARRATOR: The latest scientific research promises the ultimate in easy-to-use and safe contraception. Contraceptive vaccines are being developed. In the future, one jab may prevent reproduction for years. It offers great hope, but how could it be used, and by whom? In the Philippines women believe they have been tested with a contraceptive vaccine, secretly.
SISTER MARY PILAR VERZOSA: I first got suspicious of the vaccination programme by the way it was being carried out. The government would announce one or two days a year which they called national immunisation days. They made announcements that only women of reproductive age, that is from 14 to 45-year-old, should come to the health centres for their tetanus immunisation shots.
NARRATOR: Records show two-thirds of tetanus deaths in the Philippines are amongst men, so why would they target the women? She was even more suspicious when she discovered the jabs were to be given five times in three years, when usually a tetanus is given much less frequently.
MARY PILAR VERZOSA: That really put a lot of questions in our minds. The Department of Health would send their teams into the schools, they would just tell the teacher in charge that this was a government programme, it's a service being given, it's good for the girls.
NARRATOR: Then she started to hear disturbing reports from women when she was working in the slums.
MARY PILAR VERZOSA: The women would say why is it that the tetanus shots that we've been getting have had effects on us? Our fertility cycles are all fouled up, some of the women among us have had bleedings and miscarriages, some have lost their babies at a very early stage. The symptoms could come soon after their tetanus vaccination - some the following day, others within a week's time. For those who were pregnant on their first three or four months the miscarriage was really frightening.
NARRATOR: There are several research programmes around the world testing the contraceptive vaccine linked to tetanus which creates an immune response. The vaccine contains Beta HCG, part of a hormone necessary for pregnancy. This Beta HCG stimulates antibodies so that if a woman's egg becomes fertilised her own natural HCG will be destroyed and pregnancy will not occur.
MARY PILAR VERZOSA: I began to suspect that here in the Philippines that's exactly what's happening. They have laced the tetanus toxoid vials with the Beta HCG. The only way I could make sure that they hadn't done that was to examine the vials, and how to get a hold of those vials was going to be a problem. Who was I to collect them from the health centres?
NARRATOR: Sister Mary was helped through the Catholic network. A friend who worked in a health clinic removed the vials unnoticed. The nuns packed them with ice and sent them to an independent laboratory.
MARY PILAR VERZOSA: Oh boy that was really something when this came out of my fax machine. Report on HCG concentration in vaccine vials. Three out of those four vials registered positive for HCG, so my suspicions are affirmed that here in our country they are not only giving plain tetanus toxoid vaccination to our women, they are also giving anti-fertility.
NARRATOR: Sister Mary was not alone. Many women and doctors reported similar findings. Dr. Vilma Gonzaga became suspicious when she had two miscarriages, both times after receiving the tetanus jab. She is now suing the government since tests showed she had very high levels of antibodies to Beta HCG.
DR VILMA GONZAGA [SUBTITLED]: Women should have been told that the injection would cause miscarriage and, in the end, infertility. The Department of Health should have asked beforehand, so that only those who didn't want to have children had the injection. I really hope and pray to God that I will still have a baby and get a normal pregnancy. And I am still hoping that the Department of Health will find an antidote to the antibodies in my body.
NARRATOR: But the government has denied any contamination of the tetanus vials and their tests have led to different conclusions.
DR RAYMUNDO LO: We found insignificant traces of what the machine read us HCG and I interpreted this as plain background noise, in other words anything could have caused that signal which caused the machine to read it thus HCG, so I think the notion of tetanus toxoid being laced with HCG to cause abortions is plain hogwash.
NARRATOR: Medical practitioners in Manila do not accept this and have called for further investigations.
DR REYNALDO ECHAVEZ: We in the Philippine Medical Association doesn't believe in what the government is saying. The test that were made in both big medical centres were all positive for HCG, Beta HCG, and they claim that this is insignificant. To me this could not be insignificant because it can produce anti-HCG. At the moment there is a presence of HCG in the vaccine. It can produce anti-HCG and this can now neutralise the HCG that a woman will produce during pregnancy and abortion will set in.
The fact that the women injected with the tetanus vaccines had anti-bodies against HCG proves the vaccine was responsible for their infertility. Similar disturbing reports have come in from many other regions in the world.
Matthew McDaniel is a human rights activist active for an ethnic minority living in Thailand, called the Akha. In the following video he is seen interviewing two women. This woman reports her fetus died during her eight month of pregnancy, after she had received the tetanus vaccine.
Another interview by McDaniel shows an Akha woman who reports being forced to take the vaccine, because otherwise her child will not receive an ID card from the government.
A report from 1995 shows how the same activities were witnessed in Mexico. Women of childbearing age were recommended to be vaccinated against tetanus. They received multiple injections, while tetanus normally protects for at least ten years after just a single shot. This means that it could not have simply been a case of someone mistakenly giving these women the wrong vaccine. Similar reports come from other countries, including Nicaragua.
More information about the forced sterilization through vaccines that is going on in 3rd world countries can be found in this video presentation by David Ayoub, M.D. He mentions among other things that the numbers on tetanus infections are inflated.
A document dating back to 1987 reports the Population Council being involved in the development of these anti-fertility vaccines.
The Population Council has a history tied to forced population control and eugenics. Independent researcher Daniel Taylor has documented that Frank W. Notestein, one of the early directors of the Population Council, supported coercive population control.
The Population Council was founded by the Rockefeller family, a family with a long history of involvement in population control and eugenics. According to Edwin Black:
Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune. They were all in league with some of America's most respected scientists from such prestigious universities as Stanford, Yale, Harvard and Princeton. These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics' racist aims.
The Rockefeller family was also among the first to support the activities of Margaret Sanger.
Another organization that is linked to the sterilizing vaccine now used in forced sterilization is Unicef. LifeSiteNews.com reported that:
A UNICEF campaign to vaccinate Nigeria's youth against polio may have been a front for sterilizing the nation. Dr. Haruna Kaita, a pharmaceutical scientist and Dean of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, took samples of the vaccine to labs in India for analysis.
It goes on to say that:
This is not the first time UNICEF has been embroiled in a controversy over sterilizing agents in vaccines. LifeSiteNews.com reported that in 1995, the Catholic Women's League of the Philippines won a court order halting a UNICEF anti-tetanus program because the vaccine had been laced with B-hCG, which when given in a vaccine permanently causes women to be unable to sustain a pregnancy. The Supreme Court of the Philippines found the surreptitious sterilization program had already vaccinated three million women, aged 12 to 45. B-hCG-laced vaccine was also found in at least four other developing countries.
One large multinational corporation that is currently funding Unicef is Procter and Gamble. They have chosen to fund Unicef's vaccination campaign, to be more specific, the vaccination against tetanus of women in childbearing age.
The website of this Fortune 500 company says:
For every pack of Pampers nappies purchased during the campaign, Pampers UK donated the funding equivalent to one tetanus vaccination to UNICEF for distribution to the world's most vulnerable mothers through UNICEF's immunisation programmes.
It also claims that:
To protect the newborn, women should receive at least two doses of tetanus vaccine at least four weeks apart, with the last dose at least two weeks before delivery.
However, vaccines against Tetanus have existed since at least 1993 that could protect women and their children against this disease through just a single injection during the 3rd trimester.
It seems odd to me that these vaccines are not being used. First of all, I would assume that after the scandal in which Unicef was involved of women becoming infertile due to their vaccines they would take great care to make sure no women could ever unknowingly be sterilized again. Wouldn't it reduce the chance of a woman receiving a large amount of HCG contaminated vaccines if she only had to be vaccinated against Tetanus once during her pregnancy?
It seems odd at first that Procter and Gamble decides to specifically fund the spread of this single vaccine that has been proven to sterilize women in the 3rd world. Furthermore, they're funding the specific organization that was responsible for spreading tetanus vaccines with HCG, Unicef received a court order to stop it's vaccination campaign because of this. However, a look at the history of some of it's (past) shareholders might provide some explanation why this specific goal was chosen for the money raised.
Clarence Gamble, was a descendant of one of the original founders of this company. Femist author Angela Franks has the following to say about this man:
He wrote: "To date less [sic] than 2,000 insane and mentally defective North Carolinians have been sterilized under the existing law--a figure that represents less than one out of every 41 of the State's estimated mentally unfit. This means that for every one man or woman who has been sterilized, there are 40 others who can continue to pour defective genes into the State's blood stream to pollute and degrade future generation." (Clarence J. Gamble, "Better Human Beings Tomorrow, " Better Health, October 1947, 14, 15)
Eugenics-Watch.org has the following to say:
Clarence J. Gamble used part of the fortune made by Procter & Gamble products (including soap) to finance birth control projects for the poor in many parts of the world. He helped to push through legislation in 1937 legalizing birth control in Puerto Rico; the law specified that birth control material was to be distributed by trained eugenicists. He supported birth control distribution in Appalachia and in rural Japan. A leader in Margaret Sanger's Birth Control Federation, he suggested that they set up a "Negro Project," using black clergy and physicians to promote birth control. He founded the Pathfinder Fund, to promote population control around the world.
And BlackGenocide.org, a website about the so called "Negro Project" mentions:
Prior to 1939, Sanger’s "outreach to the black community was largely limited to her Harlem clinic and speaking at black churches." Her vision for "the reproductive practices of black Americans" expanded after the January 1939 merger of the Clinical Research Bureau and the American Birth Control League to form the Birth Control Federation of America. She selected Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, of the soap-manufacturing company Procter and Gamble, to be the BCFA regional director of the South.
Gamble wrote a memorandum in November 1939 entitled "Suggestions for the Negro Project," in which he recognized that "black leaders might regard birth control as an extermination plot." He suggested black leaders to be placed in positions where it would appear they were in charge.
Kevin Begos writes:
Gamble was sure that eugenic sterilization was a good idea, but after World War II few states were willing to consider the kind of aggressive program that he wanted. Gamble contributed time, money and a keen public-relations sense to the Human Betterment League. He also paid for most of the sterilizations in Orange County during one year, and he paid for the research that went into the book Sterilization in North Carolina, written by researcher Moya Woodside.
Though he considered himself a progressive believer in birth control, Gamble had an especially nasty edge, Schoen said.
He composed “poems” that extolled sterilization for “morons.” In one, a young woman and man are led toward sterilization, and Gamble concludes that “the North Carolina MORONS lived happily ever after.”
There are signs that some in North Carolina were horrified by Gamble. He suggested that the N.C. Mental Hygiene Society use his poem to promote the sterilization campaign; when its leaders firmly declined, Gamble was puzzled.
“Your unfavorable criticism of the story of the two moron families interested me,” Gamble wrote in a January 1947 letter. “It will be helpful if you can tell me the reasons behind this.”
But at least in the beginning, the Winston-Salem elite accepted Gamble into the fold, and genteel manners may have helped smooth any rough edges.
Dr. Gamble spoke informally, reviewing the survey of students in Winston-Salem schools made by psychiatrists working under the supervision of Dr. A.M. Jordan, financed by Mr. James G. Hanes.
Dr. Jordan's findings are arresting and intensely interesting. As presented by Dr. Gamble, with a wealth of collateral comment, they were received with keen concern and an animated discussion followed.
At the adjournment, Miss Wulkop served tea to those present.
— Human Betterment League minutes, 1948
Gamble's support of Population Control and forced sterilization did not keep him from having five children himself. These children still serve on the board of the Pathfinder Fund, an organization founded by Gamble for Population Control. The website of the Pathfinder Fund mentions the following descendants of Clarence Gamble as directors, some of them also appear to be connected to Planned Parenthood.
Julia G. Kahrl, PhD
Julia G. Kahrl, Ph.D., board Secretary, a daughter of Pathfinder's founder, Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, is a former free-lance photographer, psychotherapist, and educator. She is currently involved with land conservation efforts in Maine. Dr. Kahrl has served on the board of the Kairos Foundation, La Leche League International, and a variety of other organizations. She teaches courses in human development and is the author of articles that have appeared in publications related to her interests. Dr. Kahrl has observed family planning programs in the Far East, Africa, and South America.
Benjamin R. Kahrl
Benjamin R. Kahrl is Social Studies Department Head at Dartmouth High School. He received his Principal Certification at Harvard Graduate School of Education and is a repeat winner of Excellence in Teaching Awards. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University in 1989 and graduate degrees from both Ohio State and Harvard Universities. His interest in family planning derives in part from the commitment of his parents and his grandfather, Dr. Clarence J. Gamble. He has traveled specifically and extensively to see family planning projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
James R. Epstein
James R. Epstein, grandson of Pathfinder International's founder, Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, is President and Chief Executive Officer of EFO Capital Management, his family's financial management and estate planning business based in Washington, D.C. The company has a widely diversified investment horizon, but is currently focused on developing real estate. A proud father of two children, his other interests include building community, finding solutions to suburban sprawl, and supporting Waldorf Education, homebirth options, and alternative health modalities.
Sarah G. Epstein
Sarah G. Epstein, a daughter of Pathfinder International's founder, Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, has been an active member of the board of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. (PPMW). A volunteer for PPMW, she has counseled women on the maternity wards at the District of Columbia General Hospital and has spoken to many groups, particularly adolescents, on family planning. Mrs. Epstein is a former member of the board of The Centre for Development and Population Activities. She currently serves on the boards of The Population Institute, Federation for American Immigration Reform, and Population Services International. She has traveled widely in developing countries. She lectures on the artist, Edvard Munch, and shares her collection of his graphics with museums in the U.S. and abroad.
Walter J. Gamble, MD
Dr. Walter J. Gamble is a retired pediatric cardiologist on the staff of Children's Hospital Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, for 32 years. He is a son of Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, Pathfinder's founder. Dr. Walter Gamble also serves on the boards of several other organizations in the Boston area, including the New England Aquarium, Science Museum, and Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences.
Kevin Begos wrote an article about Sarah G. Epstein. It details her support of a new chemical that can be used for sterilization, by scarring the fallopian tubes. Johanna Schoen, an assistant professor of women's history at the University of Iowa has the following to say about opposition to the legalization of this new method of sterilization:
"Sarah Epstein's rousing endorsement ... ignores the fact that any easy contraceptive method - and particularly one as inexpensive as quinacrine and as easy to administer - carries with it a higher likelihood of abuse," said Schoen, who has done extensive research on birth-control methods.
"The realities of family planning politics around the world are likely to lead to a situation in which especially poor women get pushed towards the use of quinacrine - or even worse, are given quinacrine without their knowledge."
Epstein compares her efforts to those of her father, the man who funded forced sterilizations:
Epstein herself makes the link to her father's work, writing that "his battles ... with birth control opponents remind me today of what we are facing with (quinacrine)."
The connection between this family and the company it owns to the funding of Unicef's tetanus vaccination is shocking. There is a hidden agenda between many forms of apparant philanthropy.
