An email recently shared with The Epoch Times that was sent out to the healthcare staff of a hospital system in Fresno, California, reported an increase in “demise patients,” or stillbirths, that is expected to continue, according to the email.
“There were 22 demise patients in August , which ties the record number of demises in July 2021, and so far in September there have been 7 and it’s only the 8th day of the month,” a managing nurse wrote.
The managing nurse went on to write that she hopes the “trend doesn’t continue indefinitely.”
“I know of a few more that are scheduled to deliver in the week ahead, so unfortunately the process is going to be very familiar with all of you,” the managing nurse said.
The staff member who leaked the email told The Epoch Times that since the rollout of the vaccines, the fetal death (stillbirth rate) has skyrocketed from its pre-COVID-19 vaccine average of one to two every three months in her hospital alone.
The staff member spoke to The Epoch Times on condition of anonymity due to fear of losing their job.
The Epoch Times reached out to the head nurse who wrote the email to request a statement on why there has been a rise in what she called “demise patients,” but there has been no response.
‘Extreme Danger Signal’
Dr. James Thorp, a Florida-based OB-GYN who specializes in maternal-fetal medicine, told The Epoch Times that the content of the email is consistent with worldwide data he’s reviewed.
“It is also consistent with the data from our recently published study, the VAERS database, UK Yellow Card, World Health Organization’s VigiAccess, European Medicines Agency’s EudraVigilance, World Council of Health, and even from Pfizer’s own internal documents from their 5.3.6 postmarketing data (pdf) that they attempted to suppress for 75 years,” Thorp said.
The study in which Thorp was involved found a significant increase in 14 serious side effects, including fetal malformation, fetal cardiac arrest, and stillbirth for women who took the COVID-19 vaccine compared to the influenza vaccination.
The study called for a moratorium on the use of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnancy.
In addition, it’s consistent with 1,366 peer-reviewed publications (pdf) in just 15 months documenting severe complications and death after the COVID-19 vaccines, Thorp said.
“Let that sink in: the peer-reviewed publications documenting severe adverse events after the COVID-19 vaccines in just 15 months dwarfs all other such reports from all other vaccines administered on all of the planet earth over the past century,” Thorp said. “According to the national U.S. fetal death rate (stillbirths) per 1,000 births, there was a decline in rates from 5.89 in 2018 to 5.74 in 2020, convincingly suggesting that COVID-19 infections did not increase stillbirth rates in 2020.”
This is depicted in a graph Thorp put together examining the rates observed in the two institutions using the combined delivery rates of 9,000 per year from the two institutions listed in the email.
Using 22 stillbirths observed in July 2021 and August 2022, the adjusted stillbirth rates per 1,000 births are depicted on the graph with red triangles (29.3 per 1,000).
“This is clearly an extreme danger signal,” Thorp said. “The statistical probability of this occurring by chance alone is zero, and this could potentially be likened to a very rare 20-sigma event.”
Thorp pointed to the medical boards that have been promoting the COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant women as safe while those same boards denounced other early-treatment options such as ivermectin as misinformation.
Thorp claimed there is strong circumstantial evidence that the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG), the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) “fraudulently colluded and committed RICO violations to push dangerous untested experimental gene therapy in pregnancy while placing an unethical, illegal, immoral, and unconstitutional gag order on every physician and nurse in the United States.”
The ABOG, ABMS, and FSMB did not respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment.
Dr. Kimberly Biss, an OB-GYN in St. Petersburg, Florida, reported in a video statement that since the COVID-19 vaccines were made available, she’s seen a 50 percent increase in miscarriages and infertility in her practice.
“And I would say there’s probably about a 25 percent increase in abnormal pap smears, as well as cervical malignancies in our area,” Biss said.
‘Completely Safe for Pregnant Women’
In 2021, the medical community, along with media outlets, acted in a coordinated effort to push the vaccine that they said was “safe and effective,” despite the fact that it had only been released that year.
Dr. Terry Thomas, an OB-GYN with Associates in Women’s Health in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, said in a 2021 press conference that “it is completely safe for pregnant women to receive the vaccine at any point during pregnancy.”
More specifically, she said the COVID-19 vaccines don’t cause miscarriages.
The Epoch Times reached out to Associates in Women’s Health to get a statement from Thomas on what she’s seen in terms of stillbirths since the COVID-19 vaccines were introduced and if she’s changed her medical opinion, but neither Thomas nor the hospital have responded.
