Concerning the possibility of a link between vaccines and miscarriages, it looks like anyone concerned about whether certain vaccines pose a greater risk to individuals than the diseases they are to prevent may have good reasons for being apprehensive.

However, that is not all. H1N1 vaccinations do not pose the largest risks.

…the H1N1 Flu vaccine has appeared in miscarriage events more often than almost any other vaccine. Of the 1115 VAERS events [VAERS: Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System] that mention the abortion/stillbirth symptom, 203 are cases where the H1N1 Flu vaccine was given (200 with the FLU(H1N1) vaccine code and 3 with the FLUN(H1N1) vaccine code). This ignores the current Flu vaccine being given which has the H1N1 strain in it (the FLU(10-11) vaccine code). By contrast, there are only 63 abortion/stillbirth events associated with the Seasonal Flu Vaccine (vaccine codes FLU and FLUN) and this vaccine has been administered to millions of people over 21 years of data collection!
If you consider that the H1N1 Flu vaccine has been associated with 3 times as many abortion/stillbirth events, and that it has been given for just 5 percent of the time that Seasonal Flu vaccines have been given, then it appears that the H1N1 Flu vaccine is 60 times more likely to cause a miscarriage than the Seasonal Flu vaccine.
But the graph has more shocking results for us. The H1N1 Flu vaccine appears in many of the abortion/stillbirth cases, but not the most. The winner, appearing in 297 of the VAERS records associated with miscarriage, is Gardasil (vaccine code HPV4)! Once again, this vaccine is a newcomer, having only existed for 4 years.
So pregnant women should read the product manufacturers insert for the vaccine they are considering and speak with one or more trusted health care professionals before making a decision about vaccination during pregnancy. (Source: http://medalerts.org/analysis/archives/263)
Considering how governments all over the world push to make HPV vaccinations mandatory for girls, the first thing that came to my mind when reading the news items on vaccines, miscarriages and a considerable number of even more serious incident reports (a good number involving fatalities) was the claim that the following is one of the most-often-told lies: “I am from the government, and I am here to help you.”
