Wendy Bell Is Lying About The Vaccines. Again.

Why oh why does Wendy Bell do this to her self? In public?

Take a look at a recently posted BS Board of Wendy's:

She's referencing this article in the anti-vaxxx website which in turn leads to this Pfizer document.

The story of how "reveals that 82%-97% of pregnant women who received the company’s COVID-19 vaccine “lost their babies.” (which is what Wendy Bell is arguing this week) was debunked more than 10 months ago by the AP:

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. The flawed calculation misrepresents data from a Pfizer database of adverse events recorded during the first two months of the vaccine rollout. The registry included 270 reports of vaccination during pregnancy. No adverse events were recorded among the majority of those women. Of 34 women who specified outcomes, 28 reported the loss of a fetus or a neonatal death, five reported “outcome pending” and one reported a “normal outcome.” The misleading percentages were based on this small subset of the data. 

And if you don't want to go with the AP's fact check, you can always look at Reuters:

The document, which is looking into adverse reports between Dec. 2020 and Feb. 28, 2021 is part of Pfizer-BioNTech’s Biologics License Application to the FDA. It does not provide evidence that all pregnant women who received the shot in the reported period lost their babies.


It is key to note that the document does not provide the total number of pregnant women —or people in general — who received a shot during that period; making it impossible to calculate the percentage of pregnant women who reported an adverse effect or, in this case, had a spontaneous abortion following vaccination compared to a larger total.

Wendy Bell is lying to her audience by showing them a flawed (and already debunked) "analysis" of some Pfizer data.

If Wendy Bell (and her lil' buddy Brock) were truly interested in telling the truth to their listeners about this subject, they'd do much better with this piece from the University of Minnesota:

Two studies published yesterday in JAMA, one from Sweden and Norway and one from Ontario, find no link between COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy and adverse outcomes.


In the first study, a team led by researchers from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health in Oslo and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm studied 157,521 singleton pregnancies ending after 22 weeks' gestation among vaccinated and unvaccinated pregnant women listed in national birth registries. The study period began Jan 1, 2021, ending on Jan 12, 2022, in Sweden, and 3 days later in Norway.

The conclusion from that study reads:

In this population-based study conducted in Sweden and Norway, vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 during pregnancy, compared with no SARS-CoV-2 vaccination during pregnancy, was not significantly associated with an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes. The majority of the vaccinations were with mRNA vaccines during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, which should be considered in interpreting the findings.

Wendy Bell and Brock Schneider are bad at science, bad at research and bad news for the general health of their audience. 

Why do they continue to do this to themselves in public?
