BRAZILIA, August 29, 2008 ( – In response to questions raised about Brazil’s massive vaccination program for Rubella, which appears similar to other campaigns that have included sterilizing agents in the vaccines, Brazilian Representative Miguel Martini has submitted an official request for clarification from the country’s Ministry of Health.

  In his letter, which cites LifeSiteNews articles as well as other sources, Martini observes that Argentina conducted a similar rubella campaign in 2006, and that tests showed the presence of the Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) hormone, which creates immunity against pregnancy when included in a vaccine, triggering miscarriages.

“In Argentina, the Faculty of Pharmaceutics and Biochemistry of the University of Buenos Aires confirmed the presence of the HCG hormone in vaccines against rubella distributed by the Ministry of Health of that country:,” he writes.

  Brazil’s Health Minister, like his counterpart in Argentina in 2006, is a strong promoter of abortion, contraception, and other population control methods.

  Martini points out that the Brazilian campaign, which is the largest in history, is being carried out to prevent only 17 birth defects annually, in a country with 180 million people, and is mandatory even for those who have already been inoculated.

“Because of only 17 cases of rubella in babies in gestation per year, the Ministry of Health wants to vaccinate 70 million Brazilians, even those who have already had the disease or have been vaccinated,” he writes.

  Martini asks the Ministry of Health to answer eight questions, including: “if any test has been done to detect the presence of HCG”, “what is the origin and name of the laboratories that manufactured the vaccines”, and “if the objective is really to eliminate rubella to eradicate the illness, then why vaccinate those who are already vaccinated?”

“It is urgently necessary to receive verification regarding the vaccination being done in Brazil,” continues Martini.  “It is minimally necessary that such tests be done in Brazil, by appropriate research institutions, on the vaccines distributed in Brazil.”

Meanwhile, the questions raised by Martini, as well as pro-life activists Julio Severo and Human Life International, have been circulating widely on the internet, provoking a defiant response from the pro-abortion World Health Organization (WHO).

  After stating its support for Brazil’s rubella vaccination, the statement claims that “rumors” are being spread on the internet “by special interest groups to propagate false information with the objective to divert attention from the campaign. Rumors can begin with anonymous messages that question the safety of the vaccines used or the justifications for the campaigns” (

  The WHO claims that “antivaccine” organizations have spread such rumors in such countries as Argentina and Nicaragua, and denounces such activity as “defamation”.  However, it does not mention the fact that laboratory tests in Argentina and previous campaigns proved the existence of sterilizing HCG.

  Julio Severo, a pro-life activist who helped to raise the alarm about the current vaccination program, dismisses the WHO’s statement.

“The role of the WHO in population control efforts has been documented for more than 20 years,” he told LifeSiteNews, “and since the 1970s, the WHO has supported research for the invention of sterilizing or micro-abortive agents to work stealthily in conventional vaccines.”

“Yet, when caught and exposed in its dirty works, WHO blatantly denies, as if it did not know anything about population control and as if it were the most pro-life group in the world, innocently concerned only about unborn babies and their health.”
