Nigerian victims of an experimental meningitis drug that killed 11 children and left others disabled have finally received compensation 15 years after the tragedy.In 1996, 11 children were killed and many more disabled after taking the drug known as Trovan.
In March 11, 2004, a UNICEF campaign to vaccinate Nigerian youths in Kaduna against polio was ran into serious controversy bordering on insinuations of compromised vaccine.
The facts of all that transpired in that exercise was apparently played down until one Dr Haruna Kaita, a pharmaceutical scientist and Dean of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, took samples of the vaccine to laboratories in India for analysis.
Using WHO-recommended technologies like Gas Chromatography (GC) and Radio-Immuno assay, Dr Kaita, upon analysis, found evidence of serious contamination of the vaccine.
Barely half a decade after this incident, there seems to be more compelling facts on the vulnerability of Nigeria’s and indeed Africa’s medical security as it affects vaccine supply, use and control.
In commemoration of the sixth anniversary of the Kaduna episode, a group known as the Global Pro-life Alliance (GPA) made up of health professionals from across the globe including doctors; advocates of medical ethics; right activists; professionals and volunteers from all fields including Islamic and Christian groups from across the world networking to protect the right to life, has raised a disturbing alarm over alleged international conspiracy to depopulate the third world countries for economic reasons.
According to a letter from the group, so far sent to over 2000 legislators in 15 African countries, they insist that the continued use of foreign donor vaccines from WHO, UN, UNICEF private foundations like that of Bill and Melinda Gates for the fight against H1N1, malaria, HIV, tetanus and polio pose a threat to the National Security of Nigeria and other African countries.
The letter contains attached information on how vaccine fragments called anti-HCG are used to develop vaccines that cause infertility and other documents that show which organization and individuals are involved in the global vaccine racket.
Explaining the motive behind the anti-fertility vaccines, GPA noted that there are many business rationales for having a greater percentage of the present generation of African women become infertile, because in their quest for children, they will need introit-fertilization (IVF) which will provide a steady source for obtaining ovarian eggs from African women to support the stem cell industry in Europe and America.
Noting that over 100 million eggs a year are needed to perfect the Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) that is essential to get it working, GPA however pointed out that obtaining the required aborted fetal tissues and ovarian eggs from women in developed countries like Europe and America is almost impossible because the side effects of IVF egg donation include liver failure, kidney failure, cancer and other infections.
Accordingly, the multimillion dollar lawsuit claims that would follow such medical abuses will make it impossible for them to operate there.
“But it is not the case in Africa, people are not protected by any law on IVF. This is the reason reproductive health issues in Africa is at the core of foreign policies of G8 nations, so they can obtain early aborted fetal tissues (from so-called safe abortions using IPAS MVA equipment) and eggs from infertile women (from anti-HCG vaccine for tetanus).”
On the population argument, GPA maintains that substantial population figure was vital for development of any country, saying that while Africa has the lowest population density of 2-110 people per square kilometre, Europe has 350-450 and Asia has 300-550 per square kilometre. According to a World Bank report, the group said it has been proven that at least 300 people per square kilometre is needed for any country to attain appreciable development.
The group lamented Africa’s porous vaccine control mechanism, saying that no developed country would allow any donor vaccine, not under batch by batch check, to be used in their country.
Speaking to Dr Philip Njemanze, a signatory to the document and the Chairman of the International Institute of Advanced Research and Training, Owerri, he said, “Vaccine is a matter of national security. Anyone with access to vaccine can exterminate a nation. No one dares come near the United States vaccine depot, they are under military security. Production, transfer and use of vaccines in the United States are strictly monitored by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). African countries should therefore not allow self extermination by the use of donor vaccines they know nothing about their production processes. Now NAFDAC is talking about taking delivery of one million doses of vaccine from WHO which would just be parceled over to them with no security input from Nigeria to guarantee the safety of the vaccines they receive. The truth is that we are a sovereign nation and any sincere donor can give money with which the country can make private arrangements under intense national security vigilance to get the vaccines.”
The Global Pro-life Alliance further cited instances of vaccine compromise in other third world countries as Mexico, Nicaragua, Congo and particularly the Philippine where UNICEF was yet again indicted in allegations of contaminating vaccine with sterilizing agents.
This, according to documents attached by GPA, occurred in 1995, when the Catholic Women League of the Philippines won a court order halting a UNICEF anti-tetanus program because the vaccine had allegedly 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 sterilization program had already vaccinated an estimated three million women. Concerted efforts were made from formidable quarters to hush this revelation.
Disturbing also is the involvement in the global vaccine politics, of billionaire businessmen like Bill Gates, Ted Turner,George Soros, Warren Buffet and others with interest in stem cell research, which has been described as the potential highest area of investment in the 21st century, with an estimated worth of over $30trillion, far above ICT and the oil and gas industries.
According to GPA, Bill Gates got involved in the vaccine saga with a $26m gift to the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1999, of which some amount was used to vaccinate only women of child-bearing age against tetanus. It so happened that the vaccine ‘by coincidence’ triggered an immune response in these women, causing the abortion of their unborn children.
In a separate documented report by one Cliff Kincaid, a veteran journalist and the director of the Committee to Protect Medical Freedom, he sheds more light on Gates’ advancement from funding tetanus vaccine to HIV/AIDS vaccine.
Not so long ago, after Gates came under congressional scrutiny and federal court action for an alleged monopoly on computer software, he is again emerging as the global financial patron of the AIDS establishment and through his multi-billion dollar capital involvement, has become more powerful than any national government or even the United Nations in the program.
According to Kincaid, because of the multi-billion involvements of figures like Bill Gates and Ted Turner, ‘the U.N. is fast becoming a tool of the global rich and famous.’
Considering however, that the U.N. Charter, the document that is supposed to govern the operations of the U.N. allows contributions from member states – governments or nations – and not individuals, Kincaid warns that the influence of private money over the world body has to be viewed with alarm.
In a letter to Gates, the Committee to Protect Medical Freedom (CPMF) urges him to lead by example by volunteering to take a shot of his sponsored HIV/AIDS vaccine. They said, “this dream could become a nightmare if the vaccine, like others in the past, backfires and kills millions in the name of saving them. Those who are pushing an AIDS vaccine on the rest of us should volunteer in the HIV/AIDS vaccine trials. This includes the members of all government committees who would approve the vaccines and the officials of the companies making them.”
Recalling that in 1986, a French researcher, Daniel Zagury, had an HIV vaccine that was supposed to be tested on animals used on African children with several deaths recorded, CPMF maintains that with this record and the fact that vaccines are merely attenuated versions of the actual virus, even Gates would be reluctant to volunteer for the trials.
Whether the vaccine be for polio, malaria, tetanus or even HIV/AIDS, the Global Pro-life Alliance calls for vigilance among Nigerian and African leaders, urging them to strive towards a measure of independence or greater involvement in the procurement and administration of their vaccines.
They insist that the continued dependence and determination of vaccines to African countries, by foreign donors, is a threat more potent than armed attack to a nation’s security and sovereignty.

TORONTO — The company that released contaminated flu virus material from a plant in Austria confirmed Friday that the experimental product contained live H5N1 avian flu viruses.
And an official of the World Health Organization's European operation said the body is closely monitoring the investigation into the events that took place at Baxter International's research facility in Orth-Donau, Austria.
"At this juncture we are confident in saying that public health and occupational risk is minimal at present," medical officer Roberta Andraghetti said from Copenhagen, Denmark.
"But what remains unanswered are the circumstances surrounding the incident in the Baxter facility in Orth-Donau."
The contaminated product, a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses and unlabelled H5N1 viruses, was supplied to an Austrian research company. The Austrian firm, Avir Green Hills Biotechnology, then sent portions of it to sub-contractors in the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany.
The contamination incident, which is being investigated by the four European countries, came to light when the subcontractor in the Czech Republic inoculated ferrets with the product and they died. Ferrets shouldn't die from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.
Public health authorities concerned about what has been described as a "serious error" on Baxter's part have assumed the death of the ferrets meant the H5N1 virus in the product was live. But the company, Baxter International Inc., has been parsimonious about the amount of information it has released about the event.
On Friday, the company's director of global bioscience communications confirmed what scientists have suspected.
"It was live," Christopher Bona said in an email.
The contaminated product, which Baxter calls "experimental virus material," was made at the Orth-Donau research facility. Baxter makes its flu vaccine -- including a human H5N1 vaccine for which a license is expected shortly -- at a facility in the Czech Republic.
People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses somehow co-mingled in the Orth-Donau facility. That is a dangerous practice that should not be allowed to happen, a number of experts insisted.
Accidental release of a mixture of live H5N1 and H3N2 viruses could have resulted in dire consequences.
While H5N1 doesn't easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hybrid virus able to transmit easily to and among people.
That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created.
There is no suggestion that happened because of this accident, however.
"We have no evidence of any reassortment, that any reassortment may have occurred," said Andraghetti.
"And we have no evidence of any increased transmissibility of the viruses that were involved in the experiment with the ferrets in the Czech Republic."
Baxter hasn't shed much light -- at least not publicly -- on how the accident happened. Earlier this week Bona called the mistake the result of a combination of "just the process itself, (and) technical and human error in this procedure."
He said he couldn't reveal more information because it would give away proprietary information about Baxter's production process.
Andraghetti said Friday the four investigating governments are co-operating closely with the WHO and the European Centre for Disease Control in Stockholm, Sweden.
"We are in very close contact with Austrian authorities to understand what the circumstances of the incident in their laboratory were," she said.
"And the reason for us wishing to know what has happened is to prevent similar events in the future and to share lessons that can be learned from this event with others to prevent similar events. ... This is very important."

Scientist says things discovered in vaccines are "harmful, toxic"KADUNA, Nigeria, March 11, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) - 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.
During remarks that she made for the 15th Anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the launch of a new program that according to Clinton will now become the centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy. This new program is known as the Global Health Initiative, and it is being incredibly well-funded at a time when the U.S. government is drowning in debt. According to Clinton, 63 billion dollars will be spent by the U.S. to prevent pregnancies and to improve "family planning" services around the globe over the next six years. In other words, the new centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy is all about eugenics and population control.
The following is an excerpt from Clinton's remarks....
In addition to new funding, we’ve launched a new program that will be the centerpiece of our foreign policy, the Global Health Initiative, which commits us to spending $63 billion over six years to improve global health by investing in efforts to reduce maternal and child mortality, prevent millions of unintended pregnancies, and avert millions of new HIV infections, among other goals. This initiative will employ a new approach to fighting disease and promoting health.
You see, whenever the global elite want to launch another new eugenics operation, they announce it as a great "humanitarian program" that will save millions of lives. But their real goal is to control the population and prevent millions of lives from being born.
This was also reflected in Clinton's remarks about the United Nations Population Fund. The United Nations Population Fund has been promoting abortion, forced sterilization and radical population control measures around the globe for decades, and Hillary Clinton was super excited to talk about how the U.S. government recently renewed funding for that organization....
This year, the United States renewed funding of reproductive healthcare through the United Nations Population Fund, and more funding is on the way. (Applause.) The U.S. Congress recently appropriated more than $648 million in foreign assistance to family planning and reproductive health programs worldwide. That’s the largest allocation in more than a decade – since we last had a Democratic president, I might add. (Applause.)
So what exactly is so bad about the United Nations Population Fund?
Not only does the United Nations Population Fund support and fund the forced abortion and infanticide of China's "one child" program, they also promote abortion, forced sterilization and brutal eugenics programs throughout the developing world.
To learn much more about the United Nations Population Fund, please watch the four short videos below. They will leave you absolutely stunned....
The truth is that the United Nations Population Fund always has been and always will be about eugenics.
And thanks to Barack Obama, it is being funded with millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars.
But that wasn't enough for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, so they have launched this new Global Health Initiative which will now be the "centerpiece" of U.S. foreign policy.
63 billion U.S. taxpayer dollars will be spent over the next six years to promote abortion, sterilization and "family planning" around the globe.
Sadly enough, there are people who are actually convinced that they will save the environment by reducing the population. They think that while promoting abortion and sterilization may not be the most pleasant thing to do, it must be done for the good of the planet.
Of course they are dead wrong, but the "true believers" do not understand this. All they know is that they have to keep all of the brown and black women in other countries from having babies so that we can save the planet.
We live in a world that is becoming more evil all the time. Every person on this planet has a fundamental right to have as many children as they want, but the truth is that this right is being stripped away from an increasing number of people.
We live at a time when even our most fundamental liberties as human beings are under attack. Let us hope that America wakes up and starts saying "no" to these kinds of policies.

March 8, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - When Microsoft co-founder and population-control advocate Bill Gates spoke recently of using vaccines to reduce world population, he set off a wave of speculation over his possible allusion to covert sterilization programs. According to the Gates Foundation, however, the multi-billionaire in fact advocates vaccine use to decrease child mortality - something he claims actually decreases population growth.
Gates' comments occurred while he was speaking to a to a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference on how humans might reduce their CO2 emissions in order to reduce global warming. "Until we get near to zero [carbon emissions]" he claimed, "the temperature will continue to rise" - which he said would lead to "extremely bad" consequences.
Because the quantity of CO2 emitted is related to the human population, Gates briefly mentioned means to reduce the projected world population, including "reproductive health services" - abortion and contraception - as well as vaccines.
"Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent," he said.
Gates is well-known for funding pro-abortion population control measures - but Gates' vaccine reference immediately launched speculation regarding the use such drugs to disseminate sterilizing agents on a large scale.
Previous vaccination programs have been shown to have covertly been used to sterilize women. In 1995, the Supreme Court of the Philippines found that vaccines used in a UNICEF anti-tetanus vaccination program contained B-hCG, which when given in a vaccine, permanently destroys women's ability to sustain a pregnancy. Aproximately three million women had already been given the vaccine.
Despite this, Gates claims to operate on the seemingly paradoxical view that decreasing child mortality also decreases population growth. In response to LifeSiteNews.com's query, the Gates Foundation - noting that Gates spoke at the TED event solely in a personal capacity - pointed out that Gates said in his 2009 Annual Letter that a "surprising but critical fact [is] that reducing the number of [infant] deaths actually reduces population growth."
He continued by explaining the theory that parents will have more children when infant mortality is high, so as to ensure that several children will survive to take care of them as they grow old.
"If you improve health in a society ... surprisingly, population growth goes down," Gates told CNN in 2008. "And that's because a parent needs to have some children survive into adulthood to take care of them when they're old."
"And so, if they think having six children is what they need to do to have at least two survive, that's what they'll do. And amazingly, across the entire world, as health improves, then the population growth actually is reduced."
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently pledged ten billion dollars to help vaccinate children around the world.
On Dec. 10, 1974, the U.S. National Security Council under Henry Kissinger completed a classified 200-page study, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study falsely claimed that population growth in the so-called Lesser Developed Countries (LDCs) was a grave threat to U.S. national security. Adopted as official policy in November 1975 by President Gerald Ford, NSSM 200 outlined a covert plan to reduce population growth in those countries through birth control, and also, implicitly, war and famine. Brent Scowcroft, who had by then replaced Kissinger as national security adviser (the same post Scowcroft was to hold in the Bush administration), was put in charge of implementing the plan. CIA Director George Bush was ordered to assist Scowcroft, as were the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture.
The bogus arguments that Kissinger advanced were not original. One of his major sources was the Royal Commission on Population, which King George VI had created in 1944 “to consider what measures should be taken in the national interest to influence the future trend of population.” The commission found that Britain was gravely threatened by population growth in its colonies, since “a populous country has decided advantages over a sparsely-populated one for industrial production.” The combined effects of increasing population and industrialization in its colonies, it warned, “might be decisive in its effects on the prestige and influence of the West,” especially effecting “military strength and security.”
NSSM 200 similarly concluded that the United States was threatened by population growth in the former colonial sector. It paid special attention to 13 “key countries” in which the United States had a “special political and strategic interest”: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Turkey, Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Mexico, Brazil, and Colombia. It claimed that population growth in those states was especially worrisome, since it would quickly increase their relative political, economic, and military strength.
For example, Nigeria: “Already the most populous country on the continent, with an estimated 55 million people in 1970, Nigeria's population by the end of this century is projected to number 135 million. This suggests a growing political and strategic role for Nigeria, at least in Africa.” Or Brazil: “Brazil clearly dominated the continent demographically.” The study warned of a “growing power status for Brazil in Latin America and on the world scene over the next 25 years.”
Food as a weapon
There were several measures that Kissinger advocated to deal with this alleged threat, most prominently, birth control and related population-reduction programs. He also warned that “population growth rates are likely to increase appreciably before they begin to decline,” even if such measures were adopted.
A second measure was curtailing food supplies to targetted states, in part to force compliance with birth control policies: “There is also some established precedent for taking account of family planning performance in appraisal of assistance requirements by AID [U.S. Agency for International Development] and consultative groups. Since population growth is a major determinant of increases in food demand, allocation of scarce PL 480 resources should take account of what steps a country is taking in population control as well as food production. In these sensitive relations, however, it is important in style as well as substance to avoid the appearance of coercion.”
“Mandatory programs may be needed and we should be considering these possibilities now,” the document continued, adding, “Would food be considered an instrument of national power? ... Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can't/won't control their population growth?”
Kissinger also predicted a return of famines that could make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary. “Rapid population growth and lagging food production in developing countries, together with the sharp deterioration in the global food situation in 1972 and 1973, have raised serious concerns about the ability of the world to feed itself adequately over the next quarter of century and beyond,” he reported.
The cause of that coming food deficit was not natural, however, but was a result of western financial policy: “Capital investments for irrigation and infrastucture and the organization requirements for continuous improvements in agricultural yields may be beyond the financial and administrative capacity of many LDCs. For some of the areas under heaviest population pressure, there is little or no prospect for foreign exchange earnings to cover constantly increasingly imports of food.”
“It is questionable,” Kissinger gloated, “whether aid donor countries will be prepared to provide the sort of massive food aid called for by the import projections on a long-term continuing basis.” Consequently, “large-scale famine of a kind not experienced for several decades—a kind the world thought had been permanently banished,” was foreseeable—famine, which has indeed come to pass.

There are a number of examples in post Civil War America of eugenic programs but none as effective and widespread as the mass female sterilization in Puerto Rico. Beginning in the years following WW I, a program was initiated by the United States government, the medical community and the local government of Puerto Rico, to name a few, which resulted in the unprecedented sterilization of 1/3 of the female population by 1965, and the continued use of sterilization on a broad scale by Puerto Rican women as a form of birth control (Presser 1980).
