Government Gave Millions To Gynecologists To Promote COVID-19 Vaccines To Pregnant Women

A public open data source for government spending has revealed that the US government gave millions to gynecologists to promote COVID-19 vaccines to pregnant women.

Although pregnant women were excluded from clinical trials and regulatory data revealed the vaccine had not been examined for safety during pregnancy (pdf below), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded $11.8 million to the leading professional membership organization for obstetricians and gynecologists to promote COVID-19 vaccines to expectant mothers.

Maggie Thorp, JD, said she submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to HHS in 2022 to learn more about the COVID-19 funding received by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) during the pandemic and what motivated the group’s advice on COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant women.

A public open data source for government spending was used to track three grants that HHS/CDC gave to ACOG during the pandemic, one of which was for $11.8 million. Documents pertaining to these funds were sought.

According to documents Ms. Thorp was able to access, HHS and the CDC gave ACOG the first of three cooperation agreement awards on February 1, 2021. Grant funding for COVID-19 was only awarded if ACOG agreed to give the CDC significant supervision over initiatives it financed and complied fully with all CDC recommendations for COVID-19 infection and control.

“This is a cooperative agreement, and CDC will have substantial programmatic involvement after the award is made. Substantial involvement is in addition to all post-award monitoring, technical assistance, and performance reviews undertaken in the normal course of stewardship of federal funds,” the documents state.

Furthermore, ACOG consented to permit program employees from the CDC to “assist, coordinate, or participate in carrying out effort under the award.”

If ACOG did not follow the federal government message that COVID-19 vaccinations were safe and effective for pregnant women and new mothers, the contracts further stipulated that funding would be returned to the HHS.

HHS Funds ‘Trusted Messengers’ to Increase Vaccine Confidence

The “COVID-19 Community Corps,” a “nationwide, grassroots network of local voices and trusted community leaders to encourage vaccinations,” was established by HHS on April 1, 2021. Its inaugural members included ACOG and more than 275 other groups, giving it the “ability to reach millions of Americans.” According to a now-defunct HHS portal, the initiative works with the CDC and HHS to offer resources and factual public health information.

Vice President Kamala Harris and Surgeon General Vivek Murthy met with founding members of the multibillion-dollar program to discuss the upcoming stages of the “public education campaign from the White House” to promote vaccinations and boost vaccine confidence.

In an episode of her podcast, “The Megyn Kelly Show,” that aired on September 6, Megyn Kelly confessed she regretted getting the COVID shot due to a vaccine injury.

Members get weekly updates with the “latest scientific and medical updates, talking points about the vaccine, social media suggestions, infographics, factsheets with timely, accurate information, and tools to help people get registered for an appointment and vaccinated.”

“As part of the COVID-19 Community Corps, HHS awarded billions of federal dollars to recruit what HHS referred to as ‘trusted community leaders’ who could push vaccines within our most private relationships,” Dr. James Thorp, a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist and maternal-fetal medicine physician told The Epoch Times. “Much like modern-day trojan horses, these ‘trusted messengers’ would be unique in their ability to permeate all facets of private life.”

ACOG Encourages Members to ‘Enthusiastically Recommend Vaccination’

On April 23, 2021, former CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky publicly stated for the first time during a White House COVID-19 briefing that the organization was recommending that all pregnant women get the shot despite the lack of information on the vaccine’s safety because pregnant women were not included in the clinical trials for the COVID-19 vaccine.

The usage of COVID-19 vaccines during the first 11 weeks of the vaccine rollout, according to early findings published in The New England Journal of Medicine, was the basis for Dr. Walensky’s choice.

“We know that this is a deeply personal decision, and I encourage people to talk to their doctors and their primary care providers to determine what is best for them and for their baby,” Dr. Walensky said.

The Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine (SMFM) and ACOG started advising COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy on July 30, 2021.

With more than 60,000 members, ACOG, which was founded in 1951, is the largest group representing doctors and specialists in obstetrical care. Obstetrician-gynecologists often adhere to the recommendations provided by ACOG, just as pediatricians adhere to those made by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which establishes the standard of care for pregnant patients.

More than 5,500 people who have completed additional years of formal training in maternal-fetal medicine are represented by the SMFM, which describes them as “highly qualified experts and leaders in the care of complicated pregnancies.”

Dr. J. Martin Tucker, the former president of ACOG, urged members to “enthusiastically recommend vaccination” to their pregnant patients and to stress the “increased risks of severe complications associated with COVID-19 infection, including death during pregnancy” in a statement on the organization’s website.

“It is clear that pregnant people need to feel confident in the decision to choose vaccination, and a strong recommendation from their obstetrician–gynecologist could make a meaningful difference for many pregnant people,” Tucker added. “Pregnant individuals should feel confident that choosing COVID-19 vaccination not only protects them but also protects their families and communities,” he added.

Despite the lack of clinical trial data, Dr. William Grobman, president of SMFM, stated that experts in high-risk pregnancy should “strongly recommend” that pregnant women get vaccinated and that vaccination is “safe before, during, or after pregnancy.”

“I think it’s very obvious that the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists entered into a quid pro quo arrangement in the early months of 2021, taking large sums of money from HHS and CDC, and in return, they signed a contract stating that they were not allowed to deviate from any of the CDC and HHS COVID policy narratives,” Dr. Thorp said. “This is firmly established in the 1,400 pages of FOIA documents—50 percent of which, or more, were redacted.”

Dr. Thorp claimed that shortly after disclosing the financial benefits ACOG received for encouraging pregnant women to get the COVID-19 vaccine, he was let go from his job with SSM Health, a not-for-profit healthcare organization.

  1. #ModernaGate: Moderna wins Award for Deadly Covid Vaccine it was able to create prior to 2019 because “Murderna” is responsible for creating the Covid-19 Virus in a BioLab… #CTCCTCGGCGGGCACGTAG

    By The Exposé on April 30, 2023

    Covid-19 is a manmade virus, and Moderna Inc., the American pharmaceutical and biotechnology company that has made billions through the sale of an experimental Covid-19 injection, is responsible for creating it.

    Don’t believe us?

    Then read the exhaustive evidence below and check for yourself.

    By a concerned reader who is a qualified cell biologist

    STEP 0: The genome, the complete genetic code of Covid19 is found here – The genome of Bat Coronavirus RaTG13 is found here –

    One can compare these two genomes, letter by letter using the BLAST Genome alignment comparison tool at

    Just put NC_045512.2 in the Query Sequence Box and MN996532 in the Subject Sequence Box. Then choose the radio button:: More dissimilar sequences (discontinguous megablast). Then hit BLAST. Then when the results appear (a few second later) choose the Alignments tab and you will see both genomes compared perfectly.

    The American case will serve to raise awareness of how much skulduggery has been deployed by governments against their own people. Few people realise that the ‘vaccines’ were developed and coordinated by the military, through pseudo-legal mechanisms that enabled them to evade normal regularity processes designed to protect populations from potentially dangerous pharmaceutical products, to which private commercial companies are subject. The US case is a civil lawsuit for damages against the Department of Defense (DoD), which is the de facto developer and distributor of Covid vaccines, and names Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin III as defendant. This case is important because for the first time it targets the Department of Defense at the top of the pyramid of malfeasance. Please see Sasha Latypova’s testimony and her discussion with bioweapons expert Dr Meryl Nass.

  2. Covid Crusher
    3 minutes from preparation to job done!!
    Everything else you have read, or heard, is totally irrelevant – how simple is that
    Covid Crusher: Mix one heaped teaspoon of Iodine table salt in a mug of warm clean water, cup a hand and sniff or snort the entire mugful up your nose, spitting out anything which comes down into your mouth. If sore, then you have a virus, so continue morning noon and night, or more often if you want, until the soreness goes away (2-3 minutes) then blow out your nose and flush away, washing your hands afterwards, until when you do my simple cure, you don’t have any soreness at all, when you flush – job done. Also swallow a couple of mouthfuls of salt water and if you have burning in your lungs, salt killing virus and pneumonia, there too.
    My simple salt water cure, kills all Coronaviruses and viruses, as soon as you think you have an infection, or while self isolating, before the viruses mutate into the disease in your head and body, for which there is no cure – that is, after you have been out shopping, or mixing with people with potentially, Omicron or Delta viruses, or any other virus.
    It washes behind the eyes, the brain bulb, brain stem (Long Covid), The Escutcheon Tubes to the inner ears and the top of the throat which is at a point roughly level with half way up your ears and not where your mouth is and down the back of your throat, when sore.
    I have been doing this simple cure for over 30 years and I am and others, never sick from viruses and there is no reason why any of you should be either – when your only alternative are those vaccines!!
    I do my simple preparation, after I have been out and about, or come into contact with people who have been vaccinated – it has kept me safe – and I hope it keeps me safe for the foreseeable future as Graphene Oxide is in the very air we breathe, outside, as well, but now from the vaccinated!!
    Simply put, if the inside of your nose is dry and crusty, you are OK, if your nose is runny, you really need to do a salt water sniffle as quickly as possible and monitor the results, to see if further salt water sniffles are necessary, but later on in that evening – so far – I remain immune from potential Covid infections, doing just this.
    For 30 years, I have NEVER been ill from viral infections and there is no reason why you should be either, if you do as I do and it costs zero tooYes, I get the viruses, but this is how I stop them from infecting me and how I have avoided vaccines (which don’t work) like the plague they are, in my opinion – AND THERE IS STILL CLEAN SEA WATER TO USE INSTEAD.
    Nobody has been injured or killed by my above salt water cure
