The global baby bust is worsening – and the problem is deepest in countries that relied most heavily on mRNA Covid shots.
Most notably, several nations that had stable birth levels before the mRNAs were introduced in 2021 have seen sharp drops since. Sweden had about 115,000 births annually from 2012 to 2021. Last year, births plunged to 105,000. In 2023, they are tracking below 100,000. Germany has a similar trend.
Meanwhile, Eastern European nations like Bulgaria – which had much lower mRNA jab rates – have seen in some cases increases in births in the last year.
You might think that the recent birth collapse would have policymakers and scientists looking hard at mRNA – a novel biotechnology whose effects on fertility had hardly been studied.
You would be wrong.
Only a handful of tiny studies, nearly all outside the United States and Europe, have examined the impact of the mRNAs on sperm. Their results have been far from reassuring. A year ago, Israeli researchers reported that the Pfizer jab:
temporarily impairs semen concentration and total motile count among semen donors
After examining semen from 37 donors, the scientists found that “motile” sperm – sperm that swim in a mostly straight line and theoretically can implant an egg – fell 22 percent about three months after a BNT162b2 shot. The three-month cutoff is crucial because a full cycle of sperm production lasts about two months. Testing less than two months after vaccination may not capture the effects of the jabs.
