The Gateway Pundit has been providing our readers with responsible, courageous, and truthful coverage of the COVID pandemic since it came on the scene in 2020.
The Gateway Pundit has also provided honest and courageous coverage of the dangers of the dangerous experimental COVID vaccines.
So on Saturday the Washington Post FINALLY got around to discussing the pregnancy complications during the pandemic.
The far-left paper, which relies on Big Pharma advertising, would not point out the obvious -that women started having these complications only AFTER the experimental vaccines were introduced on a mass scale across the population.
SUCH LIARS. The WaPo REALLY hates women!

Lauren Phillips, a 32-year-old attorney from Brooklyn, had an easy pregnancy. Her vitals remained perfect, she felt great eating only vegan food, and was able to walk three miles a day throughout. The only blip was that despite being thrice vaccinated and meticulous about masking, she got infected with the coronavirus in her second trimester.
At the time, it didn’t seem like a big deal – “just like a mild cold” – and her pregnancy proceeded without incident until she gave birth to a healthy eight-pound baby boy in April. The trouble began a few days later.
She was at home nursing her son when she felt what she called a “pulse” shake her body and by the time she made it to the emergency room, her blood pressure had rocketed to a dangerous 160/116. Phillips didn’t know it then, but she had preeclampsia, a little understood complication of pregnancy that each year results in more than 70,000 maternal and 500,000 fetal deaths worldwide. Rates of the illness had been rising steadily in the United States for years, but during the pandemic, the number of cases jumped, according to doctors. No one knows exactly why.
The mystery of preeclampsia cases like that of Phillips is part of the growing pool of information scientists are sorting through when it comes to the impact of the coronavirus on reproductive health, from a woman’s menstrual cycle and fertility down to possible effects on a baby’s development.
Ilhem Messaoudi, a professor of immunology at the University of Kentucky, said she and many of her colleagues have been taken aback by the extent to which pregnancy has been affected by the pandemic. Like many researchers, she had initially thought of covid-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as a respiratory illness and did not expect it to impact reproductive organs.
Instead, she and other pregnancy experts have spent the past few years scrambling to understand spikes in maternal complications – first reported anecdotally then verified in several large studies – including an extremely small but nonetheless alarming group of unusual stillbirths. “I was naive,” Messaoudi reflected. “Now I wonder, ‘What else have we been missing?’”
It will be decades before we know the extent of the coronavirus’s effects on human health. But now, more than 2 years and 9 months since it appeared – a period in which millions of pregnant people have been infected with the virus at least once – researchers have noted some positive signs, some worrisome ones, and many other data points they still aren’t sure how to evaluate, especially since it’s difficult to disentangle the impact of maternal stress during the pandemic from the devastation of the virus itself.
They almost got there… But just couldn’t make that stretch. Too bad for their readers who are once again lied to and led down a dead end.
