Recording Surfaces of Illinois Department of Health Planning to Medically Kidnap Newborns from Parents Who Refuse Vitamin K Shot at Birth
Vitamin K is available in other forms besides intramuscular injections.
The form that is injected, AquaMEPHYTON®, is produced by Merck, and comes with several warnings, including DEATH, according to the package insert found on the FDA website:
WARNING – INTRAVENOUS AND INTRAMUSCULAR USE
Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after INTRAVENOUS injection of AquaMEPHYTON* (Phytonadione), even when precautions have been taken to dilute the AquaMEPHYTON and to avoid rapid infusion. Severe reactions, including fatalities, have also been reported following INTRAMUSCULAR administration. Typically these severe reactions have resembled hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis, including shock and cardiac and/or respiratory arrest. Some patients have exhibited these severe reactions on receiving AquaMEPHYTON for the first time. Therefore the INTRAVENOUS and INTRAMUSCULAR routes should be restricted to those situations where the subcutaneous route is not feasible and the serious risk involved is considered justified.
If one were to search coroners’ reports on causes of death among newborn babies, I wonder if “death by injection of the Vitamin K shot” would ever be listed? Or do these kinds of infant deaths get lumped together with SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)?
