December 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Well-known American conservative pundit Candace Owens has blasted the prejudice against those questioning the safety and need for a coronavirus vaccine, and related her “terrifying” experience with the controversial Merck-produced Gardasil HPV vaccine that “forever altered” her thinking about vaccines.

Moreover, with a COVID-19 vaccine now approved, it’s more essential than ever to openly discuss the pros and cons of vaccination, given that “we are more awake as a society to the evils of the pharmaceutical industry,” which has an obvious incentive to push a mandatory coronavirus vaccine, Owens said in video posted Tuesday on Instagram. 

Owens, who is due to deliver her first child in two weeks, said that many people asked for her take on vaccines following her November 30 video asking who is “lining up for the COVID-19 vaccine?”

“How many of you guys are going to be among the first to inject this experimental vaccine, that’s been rushed, into your arms?” Owens asked then. “I’ve been amazed really in just seeing the power of propaganda, and if people say things enough times, people completely suspend critical thinking.”

On December 11, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization of the two-dose Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, which uses messenger RNA technology and has to be stored at -60 to -80 degrees Celsius. The Pfizer vaccine has also been approved in Britain, Canada, Bahrain, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.

In her subsequent Instagram video, Owens described how her adverse reaction to an HPV shot changed her from a “super ignorant pro-vaxxer” who took a vaccine on her doctor’s advice, to someone who is neither “explicitly pro-vaccine” or “explicitly anti-vaccine” but “pro with people using their brain and assessing the risks and evaluating whether or not it is a good idea to take a vaccine.”

Society regards not vaccinating your children as the “highest crime against humanity and we don’t even have the discussion,” added Owens.

“We have been such a vicious and disgusting society against moms who speak out about their children getting injured by vaccines, we treat them like they’re all crazy conspiracy theorists,” she said.

“Now that I have a platform, I want to use it to support those moms and to say that I believe you. You know, I believe you because … I’ve had a vaccine. I was vaccine injured.”

When she was 20, the Merck-manufactured three-dose Gardasil vaccine for the sexually transmitted disease HPV was being promoted “really aggressively” for all women to prevent cervical cancer, and her gynecologist recommended that she take it, Owens related.

Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine.

  • One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply refuse to serve them. [see story below]
  • Another doctor writing in an online publication called 'The Conversation' shamelessly suggested that people who refuse a vaccine should be given a psychoactive drug to induce compliance. [see story below]

But, these suggestions are plain political posturing, and have nothing to do with science or with the recent trends of the disease.

And, in case they haven't noticed, we live in a democracy not a medical dictatorship!

Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks policy-makers and business people, at all levels, to pledge to respect the rights of those who, in good conscience, decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children.

People should not have to live in fear of governmental or corporate retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It would be intolerable and immoral for the government or business to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will to avoid a fine, or just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping.

Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.

So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished for refusing a vaccine.

Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.

Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.

We can no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question, especially now that, statistically speaking, the initial brunt of the COVID crisis has passed.

Neither can we accept the dictates of doctors who seem detached from reality and from science, and who only seem to be attached to the idea of promoting ideas which contribute to the agrandizement of power and control of political interests, and wealth of those who stand to make a lot of money from the sale of a COVID vaccine.

Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks government and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

“The first time I got the first part of the series, as soon as he gave me a shot, I passed out,” which left her “shaken.”

As for her second dose, “as soon as they put the shot in my arm, I not only passed out again, but when I woke up, I instantly started vomiting and seizuring all over my nurse,” who then called in two male doctors, she said, who recommended not taking the third dose because of her adverse reaction.

“And it was just a really terrifying, awful experience. I am not a person who has ever had seizures. I'm not a person who passes out,” Owen said. “I was crying hysterically and when I left, I was really shaken up and I went to my mom’s office, which was very nearby.”

The experience “forever altered my opinion on vaccines, meaning that I would never, ever, ever be a person that would just get the vaccine because the doctor said so,” Owens said.

She then heard from other women who had adverse reactions to the Gardasil vaccine and “started digging into this vaccine and thinking to myself, why did I just allow this doctor to inject me without doing any research?”

Owens discovered that cervical cancer affects a disproportionately small number of women, (about 4,000 of the 166,000,000 million American women die of cervical cancer annually, or .0024 percent) and that HPV generally “goes away untreated.”

Years later, Merck began promoting the Gardasil HPV vaccine as essential for men, and according to Owens, New York state proposed to give the vaccine to children as young as five, “which terrifies me, knowing how I reacted to it, knowing how scared I was, knowing that I passed out twice, that I had a seizure, that I threw up.”

(The Democrat-dominated New York state assembly and senate are currently considering bills to provide for the HPV vaccination of anyone born after January 2009.)

As for the COVID-19 vaccine, “I think I’ve never seen this many people, both people that say they are pro-vax and anti-vax coming together to discuss their lack of comfort with rushing the vaccine, with saying that you want everybody to get it,” Owens concluded.

“We should always pause and ask questions,” she said. 

“And what people think about me means very little. I’m going to make the best decisions for me, best decisions for my future child. … And Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates are evil. The end.”

A number of experts, including former Pfizer senior researcher Michael Yeadon, oppose a coronavirus vaccine, and warn the COVID-19 vaccine have been insufficiently tested and the extent of grave adverse effects is unknown. Yeadon and a colleague have launched a petition to stop all testing of COVID-19 vaccine in Europe.

The UK health authorities have advised pregnant and nursing women not to take the Pfizer vaccine, and that should women avoid becoming pregnant for two months after receiving the shots.
