America’s preachers, the social misfits, sexual predators and pillow peddlers have been feeding off stoking fears in women that they will lose the ability to breed successfully, thus producing more progeny…

Washington (AFP) – US health authorities urged pregnant women on Wednesday to get inoculated against Covid-19, arguing that the data demonstrates they do not increase the risk of miscarriage.
False and misleading claims that Covid-19 vaccines harm fertility and cause miscarriages are still circulating online, against all the evidence – https://t.co/KRSJuqXSPE#StayWellEssex @ESNEFT @SNEE_ICS @EssexPH @Tendring_DC @Essex_CC @willquince @EPUTNHS

Miscarriages and preterm births are a huge risk in pregnant women who contract COVID, which is why the American College of Obstetric and Gynecology is recommending vaccination for pregnant women now as well. Being pregnant is also a risk factor for severe COVID, sadly.
