A “terrible report” by the National Center for Health Statistics, published on the CDC website, came out in the spring of this year, reported world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough. What that report shows is that maternal death rates are increasing in America — and fast.
The WHO defines maternal death as “the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and the site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management, but not from accidental or incidental causes.” In plain English, that means the death of a pregnant woman from non-accidental causes within 42 days following or during pregnancy.
“The maternal mortality rate for 2021 was 32.9 deaths per 100,000 live births, compared with a rate of 23.8 in 2020 and 20.1 in 2019,” according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
That’s a 38.2% increase compared to 2020 and a 63.7% increase from 2019. Overall, a 50% increase in maternal mortality — very troubling numbers.
In all fairness, the maternal death rate in America has been gradually rising over the past three decades, despite spending the most money on healthcare, but the surge in maternal deaths in 2021 is an outlier, even with the prior trend.
So, what’s causing the sharp increase?
Sources like CNN put the blame on COVID, but COVID existed in both 2020 and 2021. And with the introduction of “miracle vaccines,” that should have slowed down maternal death rates from COVID complications, right? So, why the sudden rise?
Dr. McCullough expressed to Del Bigtree on The Highwire that so-called COVID vaccines themselves might have something to do with it. “This is women dying with babies in the womb or 42 days afterwards. And we know the CDC separately has told us 65% of women who delivered a baby in the United States took a shot either before the pregnancy or during the pregnancy.”
He added that injecting pregnant women when the vaccine program began was “one of the biggest violations of human ethics.” Pregnant women and those of childbearing potential were not included in the initial randomized COVID vaccine trials in November. However, by December 10, when the vaccine program began in the U.S., thousands of pregnant women received the vaccine.
And from there on, public figures like former CDC Director Rochelle Walensky repeatedly told pregnant women to get vaccinated. “There is no bad time!”
“It absolutely is safe to get vaccinated. So I would say if you are thinking about getting vaccinated, there is no bad time to get vaccinated. Get vaccinated while you’re thinking about having a baby, before you’re thinking about having a baby, while you’re pregnant with your baby, or after you’ve delivered your baby. There is no bad time!”
How could Rochelle Walensky confidently assure pregnant women and women hoping to become pregnant that the COVID vaccines were “safe and effective” if pregnant women were excluded from the initial randomized trials? And one question remains: if the 2021 maternal death rates are this high, what will the 2022 numbers look like?
