Bill Gates created products that have been of immense value to society, not to mention the jobs created by Microsoft and the businesses associated with it. It’s a capitalist success story. And he became a billionaire in the process — at the very top of the wealthiest people in the world.
What is very disturbing is what he is choosing to do with his immense wealth. What causes people such as Gates and Soros to use their incredible wealth to pursue nefarious purposes is beyond the scope of this article. But we can take a look at what Mr. Gates is up to now.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is praised for its philanthropy around the world, but much of the foundation’s good deeds are merely no-consent vaccine experiments carried out on the poor. Under the pretense of providing healthcare to third world countries, the Gates Foundation instead coerces tens of thousands of children to test out various vaccines for pharmaceutical companies.
That’s a serious charge. Let’s see an example.
In 2009, the tribal children of the Khammam district in Andhra Pradesh were gathered together and told they would be receiving healthcare shots. Even though the Gates foundation has the wealth to give these tribes access to clean water, sanitation services, nutrition and low stress living conditions, they instead push for HPV vaccines and call them “well-being” shots. The shot these young girls received was an HPV vaccine manufactured by Merck and administered by the state’s health department. The young girls, aged 9–15, were instructed to line up for three doses of the vaccine. As the months rolled on, the health of the 16,000 girls rapidly deteriorated. Five of the girls died shortly thereafter.
When billions of dollars are behind a mission, authorities will gladly follow along and do as they are told. Testing chemicals and viruses out on human subjects is easy in third world countries where human life seems to be expendable.
India Times reports that many girls fell ill and several died:
The girls were administered the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine in three rounds that year under the supervision of state health department officials. The vaccine used was Gardasil, manufactured by Merck. It was administered to around 16,000 girls in the district, many of whom stayed in state government-run hostels meant for tribal students.
Months later, many girls started falling ill and by 2010 five of them died. Two more deaths were reported from Vadodara, Gujarat, where an estimated 14,000 children studying in schools meant for tribal children were also vaccinated with another brand of HPV vaccine, Cervarix, manufactured by GSK. Earlier in the week, the Associated Press reported that scores of teenaged girls were hospitalised in a small town in northern Colombia with symptoms that parents suspect could be an adverse reaction to Gardasil.
One Indian judge demanded answers, but it appears the entire issue simply disappeared:
Young tribal girls received shots of pharmaceutical company Merck’s Gardasil vaccine and Cervarix, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.
The vaccines are given to girls as young as nine in many countries – including the UK and the US – to protect against the human papilloma virus, one of the major causes of cervical cancer.
But the Indian court yesterday heard a challenge by campaigners who claim the study – funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – failed to obtain the informed consent of the children or their parents.
They say that a ‘study’ carried out for the foundation by a US organisation was in fact an illegal drugs trial.
A MailOnline investigation published earlier this month uncovered claims that children as young as nine suffered side-effects after being used as unwitting human guinea pigs for the new drug.
Gardasil 9, which is expected to be worth £1.2 billion a year in sales, has already been approved for use in the US and could be available in the UK later in the year.
At a hearing of India’s Supreme Court in Delhi yesterday judges expressed frustration that the country’s government had failed to provide answers to what had happened during the earlier trials of the original Gardasil and Cervarix.
They gave the government a month to explain what action had been taken to investigate and what efforts had been made to obtain the consent of those taking part in the trials.
They wanted to know whether there had been any follow-up or monitoring of the girls to see whether they had suffered adverse health consequences.
And the judges also ordered the government to produce an opinion on the issue of liability and compensation.
Lawyers for the campaigners who brought the case said they were pleased with the fact that, for the first time, liability and compensation for the victims had come up in court.
‘It is a very encouraging development that the judges are now discussing accountability and not just accountability but also compensation, so the tone of the hearing today was very positive for us because it’s clear from all the parties, including from government reports, that there were, at best, serious irregularities and, at worst, gross violations of fundamental human rights,’ said Kerry McBroom, one of the lawyers.
An investigation by an Indian parliamentary committee had previously concluded that the trials amounted to a serious breach of trust and medical ethics amounting to child abuse and ‘a clear cut violation of the human rights of these girl children and adolescents’.
The committee’s report said it had been established that clinical trials of the vaccines had been carried out ‘under the pretext of an observation/demonstration project’ in violation of all laws and regulations laid down by the government for such trials.
The group accused of carrying out the trial under the ‘pretext’ of carrying out an academic study – PATH – said it ‘strongly disagreed with the findings, conclusions, and tone of the released report and its disregard of the evidence and facts.’
In court yesterday a bench of judges headed by Justice Dipak Misra criticised the Indian government for failing to act on the committee’s report.
‘It should be the concern of [the government] that health of people is preserved,’ they said.
‘Don’t leave the matter to court. It is for the government to find out a way.
‘If parliamentary committee has done something then it is obligatory for the executive government to take action on this report.
‘File affidavit stating protocol to be followed by getting consent of people to undergo trial and the process to find out what is the effect of vaccination and whose liability is it to pay compensation.’
Merck and GSK have both been ordered to respond to the allegations made by campaigners.
Yesterday’s hearing was told that Merck had provided a six volume document amounting to around 2,000 pages of evidence – but that GSK had so far failed to respond.

Both companies have denied any wrongdoing. In court yesterday the judges also heard from lawyers for PATH – the US-based group that organised the ‘study’ – which emphasised the vaccines were safe and the vaccinations had been carried out in the interests of public health.
McBroom said she and her team would be referring to the latest trials of Gardasil 9 in their closing submissions.
MailOnline’s investigation into Gardasil 9 revealed how several children used in those trials claimed to have suffered problems including weight loss, fatigue, dizziness and menstrual problems.
They and their parents maintained that they did not give their informed consent and that that they were not aware that they were taking part in the trial of an untested drug.
Among those who took part was 16-year-old Aman Dhawan, who lives in the Pancham Ki Phel slum in the city of Indore.
His family say they were told the drug was a new medicine that would prevent a range of diseases, including malaria.
But Aman said that after he was given the vaccine he began to see changes in his body and he lost weight and strength.
