SICK anti-vaxx trolls are tormenting women who had miscarriages by incorrectly claiming taking the Covid jab caused them to lose their babies.
Anti-vaxxers have targeted pregnant women and those who miscarried, shaming them for getting the vaccine despite no evidence that it has any effect on pregnancies.
The World Health Organization says it knows of no specific risks from taking the vaccine that would outweigh the danger of exposure to the virus.
Both the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US and the UK government say there is no known risk for pregnant women receiving the vaccine, but say the jabs were not tested on expectant mothers.
The CDC says the Covid vaccine is “unlikely to pose a specific risk for people who are pregnant”.
Dr. Anthony Fauci has said 20,000 pregnant women have been vaccinated against Covid in the US without complications.
One of the women who has been targeted by the trolls is Michelle Rockwell, a family medicine doctor who tragically lost her baby.
She was sent a collage of text and pictures from her popular Instagram implying the Covid vaccine was to blame.
“Dec 21st she got it. Jan 24th, she lost her baby. Another one,” read the vile message.
“It was heartbreaking. I definitely shed some tears over it,” she told the Daily Beast.
“To attack women who’ve gone through so much, that’s just a new low.
“So many women right now have vaccine hesitancy, and are questioning it, and have legitimate concerns. And I feel like whoever made this is just preying on women’s fears.”
Another doctor tweeted in January that she received the vaccine when she was 14 weeks pregnant, the Daily Beast reports.
She announced that she had miscarried a few days later, prompting abuse from anti-vaxxers who trolled her on Twitter.
One said: “She got what she deserved. Her husband needs to leave.”
“I wonder if she can be charged for what she did?” another wrote.
“Hope you don’t reproduce once again,” said another tweet, adding the middle finger emoji.
Psychologist Tamar Gur said because the miscarriage is usually unknown, many women to blame themselves, making attacks from anti-vaxxers all the more cruel.
“There’s already this journey of self-doubt and anger directed at yourself,” she said. “
“For anti-vaxxers to take advantage of someone when they’re in pain, and try to make a woman feel responsible for the loss of her very wanted baby, is just the cruelest thing I could have heard.”
