(NaturalNews) The British National Health Service (NHS) has begun bribing teenage girls between the ages of 16 and 18 to get Gardasil vaccines. Officials are giving shopping vouchers worth the equivalent of roughly $70 to girls who agree to get jabbed with the vaccine, which has been implicated in numerous cases of severe harm and death.
Officials from NHS Birmingham East and North have initiated the pilot program which is costing taxpayers the equivalent of about $35,000. No parental consent is required in order for young girls to participate in the program.
Many governments around the world have been pushing Gardasil through national campaigns designed to scare and entice women into getting the vaccine. The U.K. is no exception, as it continues to push for all girls between 12 and 18 years old to receive the shots, despite outcry from concerned citizens over the dangers of the vaccine.
The latest pilot program scam, however, essentially bribes young girls to get the vaccine with public funds. “[The project is] a serious misuse of taxpayers’ money,” said Norman Wells, Director of Family and Youth Concern, a national educational trust in the U.K. that researchers the causes and consequences of family breakdown.
To make matters worse, Gardasil is not even effective at preventing the HPV virus for which it is being marketed. According to Dr. Diane Harper, lead researcher for the development of both Gardasil and Cervarix, said in an interview that the vaccines do little to reduce cervical cancer rates. According to her, seventy percent of all HPV infections subside on their own within a year, and 90 percent subside within two years without any treatment. Only half of the remaining ten percent will even develop into cervical cancer.
