TUCSON, Arizona (LifeSiteNews) – Parents say they were misled by the government and pharmaceutical companies about the safety of the COVID-19 jabs after their children began to suffer severe adverse events from coronavirus shots, including death.

Two such parents spoke at a conference organized by outspoken COVID shot critic Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) on November 2, the clips of which were broadcast as part of the Truth for Health Foundation’s Wednesday installment of the Stop the Shot conference series, “The Vaccines & Children: What are the Risks?”

Ernesto Ramirez, the single father of 16-year-old Ernesto Ramirez, Jr. who died following reception of the Pfizer COVID shot, warned the conference that “we’re going to have more deaths on our hands than they planned. And they say it’s worth the risk. It wasn’t worth the risk to me.”

Ernesto Jr. took the abortion-tainted mRNA jab on April 19, dying just five days later on April 24 after suffering from an enlarged heart, reportedly double its size.

Speaking on the reasons behind getting the jab, Ramirez, who had received Moderna’s shot earlier in the year, said that he was led to believe that the Pfizer jab “no doubt was safe for teenagers,” and subsequently asked his only son to take the shot, believing it was “the right thing to do.”

However, “it was like playing Russian roulette,” he later stated. “My government lied to me. They said it was safe. Now I go home to an empty house.”

Citing an October study, Ramirez said that details about dangerous heart conditions in teenagers, such as myocarditis, was known earlier in the year (around May) but was not published until much later.

“Why wasn’t this information released until October 1 this year?” he asked. “If we would have known this, my son would be here with me. That’s child abuse right there.”

“They knew what was happening. I consider that murder,” he continued.

“I love the hell out of my country,” Ramirez said, “but I don’t trust my government anymore. I’m here because I’m Junior’s voice, I’m doing this in his honor. If I could protect one or two children [by speaking out], that means the world to me. And I’m going to continue this fight.”

Maddie de Garay, injected at age 12, is permanently disabled and continues to have severe health problems

Stephanie de Garay appeared alongside her daughter, Maddie de Garay, whom she had entered into Pfizer’s COVID shot trial for 12 to 15-year-olds, the result of which has rendered disastrous results to Maddie’s health, including permanent disabilities.

Stephanie told the conference that her daughter was a healthy young 12-year-old at the time of being entered into Pfizer’s child trial alongside her brother, Lucas, who was given the placebo and is currently in good health.

In the nine months since Maddie received the second dose of Pfizer’s mRNA jab, her health has declined dramatically. “She can’t walk, she’s in a wheelchair, she has an NG [nasogastric] tube for all of her nutrition, she has constant pain in her stomach, back, and neck … she can’t fell her legs.” Stephanie explained. “And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”

Following Maddie’s first dose, Stephanie said that her reaction was “typical,” having suffered nothing more than fever-like symptoms, all of which subsided within “a couple of days.”

However, within a day of receiving the second shot, “she had immediate pain where she had gotten the injection.”

“In less than 12 hours,” Stephanie continued, Maddie “developed severe abdominal pain, horrible nausea, painful electric shocks on her spine and neck. Her hands were ice cold when you touched them … and on her feet … pain all over her body.”

Although having suffered so much already, Stephanie said that she continues to discover health problems in her daughter as time goes on. More recently, Maddie developed severe chest pain, which she described as feeling as though her heart “was being pulled out of her neck.” An electrocardiogram showed that Maddie’s heart had begun beating at an unusually high rate, a condition called tachycardia, since taking the second shot.

Vaccine is unsafe and totally unnecessary for kids

Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D., CEO of the Truth for Health Foundation, explained that children are broadly unaffected by the novel coronavirus and that the only children who are at any real risk of serious illness or death “are those who have obesity, diabetes, lung disease such as cystic fibrosis, serious medical conditions that make them already vulnerable.”

Vliet suggested that, while these children do face increased risk, treatment is available for such individuals without the need to rely on the jabs, the long-term effects of which are unknown. “Kids rarely become hospitalized from COVID and are actually at much greater risk of death in a car accident or driving accident,” she added.

Continuing, Vliet affirmed that “children are also not the drivers of the spread of the virus. Kids are unlikely to be the source of COVID-19 infections for the household, and there aren’t data to support the idea that children at school cause infections in teachers.”

On the other hand, there are known risks with the COVID shots, she said, and without long-term testing, which is not yet available for the jabs, the safety data is lacking.

“This is a genetic vaccine, not a traditional vaccine. Heart problems … are well known complications of the COVID shots,” she cautioned.

“For boys aged 12 to 17, heart damage adverse events occurred in 162 of one million: a rate that is six times higher than their risk of COVID-19 hospitalization.”

Vliet’s claim that children face extremely low risk from COVID-19 is borne out by the facts. Thousands of reports of serious adverse events and deaths following the jabs has led numerous experts to criticize the push to inject children with the experimental shots.

This summer, researchers with Johns Hopkins School of Medicine found a “mortality rate of zero among children without a pre-existing medical condition such as leukemia” when they “analyze[d] approximately 48,000 children under 18 diagnosed with COVID in health-insurance data from April to August 2020.”

In response to the finding, lead researcher Dr. Marty Makary accused the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of basing its advocacy of school COVID “vaccination” on “flimsy data.”

‘A lot of room for human error and concern of reporting bias’

Regarding the trial itself, Stephanie noted that, using an app called TrialMax, Pfizer logged details of reactions to doses of their COVID jab for just seven days after administering each shot. Additionally, “the app only allows you to record solicited adverse events like fever, redness, injection, site pain, swelling, headache, vomiting, and other typical, expected reactions,” with options for mild, moderate, and severe cases of the choices listed, stated Stephanie.

Beside anaphylactic shock, “there’s no free form at all to fill in any other reaction that you have beyond the typical, non-serious adverse events,” she said.

In order to lodge adverse events of a more serious nature, or that simply are not listed on the TrialMax app, Stephanie noted that trial participants are required to contact the study doctor or principal investigator directly. “That’s the only way to record this; there’s no way to have any unbiased way of entering it [an undisclosed reaction] and documenting it.”

“We did what we were told, we called the study doctor and they told us to go to Cincinnati Children’s E.R., where the trial was held, to check for appendicitis. She did not have appendicitis. They couldn’t even find her appendix. What made it into the trial record is unclear.” Though requesting “several times” to have Maddie’s reactions documented, Stephanie said that “we still don’t know what was actually reported.”

“So basically, as you can see, this leaves a lot of room for human error and concern of reporting bias coming from the principal investigator.”

The principal investigator for Maddie’s trial group was Dr. Robert W. Frenck, the same man who is billed as the lead author on the New England Journal of Medicine’s article on the Pfizer COVID jab in adolescents, published in May.

It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.

We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.

Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.

On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.

While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.

This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.

Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:

  • A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
  • A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
  • A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
  • A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
  • A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
  • A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
  • A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)

All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!

And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.

While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.

And now, it would seem that time has officially come.

"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.

This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."

In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."

These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.

As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.

But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.

This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.

Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Thank you!

Within the article, Stephanie said that adverse events made up a short section of only 308 words, within which there was “absolutely no mention of any of Maddie’s adverse reactions.”

A memo from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on an amendment to the emergency use authorization (EUA) for Pfizer’s jab in adolescents does make mention of Maddie’s adverse reactions, ultimately diagnosing her with “functional abdominal pain,” which is essentially “a stomach ache,” Stephanie explained.

“One participant experienced an SAE [severe adverse event] reported as generalized neuralgia, and also reported 3 concurrent non-serious AEs [adverse events] (abdominal pain, abscess, gastritis) and 1 concurrent SAE (constipation) within the same week. The participant was eventually diagnosed with functional abdominal pain. The event was reported as ongoing at the time of the cut-off date,” the FDA report reads.

Stephanie added that “by the data cut-off for the trial on March 13, Maddy experienced over 35 adverse events.”

Maddie made nine visits to the E.R. and was hospitalized three times for a total of 63 days. It was during this time the jab was approved for 12 –15-year-olds under the FDA’s EUA protocol.

Despite attempts to make contact with the regulatory bodies responsible for overseeing vaccine production and authorization, and with Maddie’s story being publicized, having been picked up by medical attorney and blogger Aaron Siri in October, “neither Pfizer, the FDA or the CDC has ever talked to us or attempted to. We have never heard anything from them. Ever,” Stephanie said.
