500,000 kenyan women sterilized

Catholic Church released a report stating approximately 500,000 women may never bear children after being injected with a contaminated tetanus vaccine in 2014

Catholic Church claims in its final report that the anti-pregnancy HCG hormone, was laced in the vials from the October tetanus vaccination drive. Kenya’s Parliament mandated a joint committee of experts to do tests, after the church opposed plans to vaccinate 2.3 million child-bearing women against tetanus.

“Thirty per cent of the vials collected during the tetanus vaccination campaign sponsored and funded by WHO and Unicef contained HCG,” says the report that the church-seconded experts released.

The church now wants the ministry, and the UN to apologise to Kenyans and stop any further vaccination campaigns.
