44% of pregnancies lost during Pfizer COVID vaccine trial, company says vax not to blame
Report turned over under FOIA doesn't explain basis for Pfizer's conclusion that "other" causes were behind lost pregnancies. FDA has known findings for 16 months.

Sprinkled throughout more than 3,600 pages of "adverse events" records from Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine trial is a troubling finding: 44% of pregnant women lost their pregnancies during the trial.
Deplatformed feminist Naomi Wolf's publication Daily Clout identified 22 of 50 pregnant women classified as experiencing "abortion spontaneous," "abortion spontaneous complete," "abortion spontaneous incomplete" or "miscarriage" as of the March 13, 2021, report cutoff date. All eventually received the vaccine, though eight were initially given the placebo.
All are tagged with the codes for "Recovered/resolved," referring to adverse events without subsequent complications, and "other," meaning the vaccine played no role in the lost pregnancies. The report doesn't explain the basis for Pfizer's conclusions that the vaccine played no role.
Pfizer gave the FDA the report April 1, 2021, and the agency turned it over in response to a Freedom of Information Act request July 1 of this year, according to Daily Clout, which recruited its readers to analyze the hundreds of thousands of pages that have been turned over under court order this year.
The Food and Drug Administration and Pfizer have not responded to Just the News queries Wednesday morning to explain the lost pregnancies during the trial, the basis for Pfizer's conclusion that they weren't vaccine-related, what happened to pregnant women in the trial after the report cutoff date, and whether the FDA asked Pfizer for information to back up its conclusions and follow up with pregnant women.
