Lawsuit Filed Against Merck for Lying to Doctors & Moms About the Gardasil Vaccine
What Happened: The national law firm of Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman filed a lawsuit on August 19th against pharmaceutical giant, Merck, on behalf of a 19-year old woman who is alleging the company misled the FDA, legislators, doctors and moms about the safety and efficacy of its Gardasil vaccine. According to Children’s Health Defense, “The lawsuit asserts Merck purposely downplayed the risk of Gardasil’s ingredients, including a proprietary aluminum compound (a potent neurotoxin) and secret and potentially hazardous DNA particles.” The plaintiffs name is Julia Balasco, and she is alleging that she suffered and continues to suffer “severe and permanent physical injuries such as an autoimmune disease known as postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) after receiving multiple injections of the human papillomavirus (HPV) Gardasil vaccine.”
Attorneys Bijan Esfandiari, Nicole K. H. Maldonado, Michael L. Baum, co-counsel Robert F. Kennedy, Jr and local counsel Christopher E. Hultquist of Hultquist Law in Providence, filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island on behalf of Ms. Balasco, who alleges her vaccine injuries were so severe and debilitating, she was physically unable to attend most of high school. The case number is 1:20-cv 00364.
Apparently, Merck failed to properly test Gardasil before the HPV vaccine was fast-tracked and then administered to millions of young girls and boys throughout the world. Furthermore, Merck knew or had reason to know that its vaccine was not even effective but did not warm the medical community nor the public. “The company wrongfully concealed information and further made false statements concerning the safety and efficacy of Gardasil.”
Why This Is Important: This is important because it’s not an isolated incident. Injuries as a result of HPV vaccination have happened quite a bit, and that includes deaths. The HPV vaccine has constantly come under the scrutiny of published peer-reviewed science by a number of independent researchers.
For example, a study published in Clinical Rheumatology exposes how vaccine manufacturers used phoney placebos in clinical trials to conceal a wide range of devastating risks associated with HPV vaccines. Instead of using genuine inert placebos and comparing health impacts over a number of years, as is required for most new drug approvals, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline spiked their placebos with a neurotoxic aluminum adjuvant and cut observation periods to a matter of months.
Mary Holland, Mary Holland, J.D., who recently retired as the directer of the NYU School of Law actually published a book about this type activity by big pharma. The book is called “The HPV Vaccine On Trial: Seeking Justice For A Generation Betrayed.”
Again, there are multiple examples of HPV vaccine injuries, which is why Japan, for example, stopped recommending it. “Sacrificial Virgins” is one of multiple films to tackle an issue that continues to largely go unacknowledged and it provides more examples.
Jennifer Robi is a 24-year-old former athlete and scholar who has been confined to a wheelchair since receiving her third Gardasil vaccines at age sixteen. She suffers continual uncontrolled neuro/muscular contractions (jerking) and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and many other symptoms of systemic autoimmune dysregulation.

A new study published in The Royal Society of Medicine is one of multiple studies over the years that has emerged questioning the efficacy of the HPV vaccine. The researchers conducted an appraisal of published phase 2 and 3 efficacy trials in relation to the prevention of cervical cancer and their analysis showed “the trials themselves generated significant uncertainties undermining claims of efficacy” in the data they used. The researchers emphasized that “it is still uncertain whether human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination prevents cervical cancer as trials were not designed to detect this outcome, which takes decades to develop.” The researchers point out that the trials used to test the vaccine may have “overestimated” the efficacy of the vaccine.The authors point out that it was even questionable whether or not the vaccine prevents pre-cancerous lesions, let
