In an effort to get pregnant Alaska women to take experimental Covid jabs, Sen. Lisa Murkowski spent part of last week conducting a gushing interview with Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ann Zink, and Heidi Murkoff, author of “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”
The Nov. 5 interview spent considerable time attempting to establish Zink, Murkowski and Murkoff as everyday “Alaska momma bears” who can speak from the heart to concerns that fellow moms have about possibly harming themselves or their unborn babies with Covid injections.
Zink started off noting that getting pregnant women to agree to a Covid jab has proven difficult. She said 97% of pregnant U.S. women who are hospitalized with Covid are unvaccinated and 100% of pregnant Alaska women who have been hospitalized with Covid are unvaxxed.
“I’m really hoping we can get more women vaccinated, particularly pregnant women,” she told Murkowski.
While there are no long-term studies regarding the impact of Covid shots in infertility, birth defects or other pregnancy related issues, Zink claimed that the experimental jabs are incredibly safe.
“They last in your body a couple hours to a couple days. They don’t pass into the placenta. They don’t pass to your baby,” she said. “Honestly, vaccines are safer than most over the counter medication. They are the safest thing we do in medicine.”
In truth, 36 countries do not recommend Covid shots for pregnant women, and another 19 countries only permit the jabs with qualifications.
Zink then claimed there is “no evidence” that Covid shots cause infertility or miscarriage problems.
“What we see across the board is that there is no evidence of causation,” she said. “There is no evidence that the vaccine causes infertility – no evidence that the vaccine causes infertility in the future times – not just right now but in the future – or causes miscarriage.”
While Zink’s comments about the lack of evidence may be true, in reality there are no long-term studies demonstrating that the shots are safe. In fact, all Covid vaccinations available in the United States are still experimental and only available under special emergency use authorization. Clinical trials for the shots won’t even be completed until 2023. Additionally, thousands of deaths and millions of injuries have been documented worldwide following Covid injections.
Moreover, the former vice president and top researcher at Pfizer, Dr. Michael Yeadon, has warned of potential damage to female reproduction systems, and says pregnant and women of childbearing age should absolutely reject the jabs.
Yeadon points to a Pfizer “biodistribution study” conducted on animals which demonstrated that vaccine nanocarrier molecules accumulate in the spleen, bone marrow, liver, adrenal glands and especially the ovaries. How this will affect long-term fertility is unknown.
“We never, ever give experimental treatments to pregnant women,” Yeadon told LifeSiteNews in August, while blasting widespread governmental promotion of Covid shots to pregnant women as “stupid and reckless.”
We’re going to try and change some hearts and minds today – that’s for sure – and get some sleeves rolled up for women who are planning for pregnancy.
“When they say they’re safe, you must know they don’t know that,” he said. “They’ve not been around long enough for them to possibly evaluate.”
In fact, the World Health Organization website only recommends pregnant women get the Covid shot “when the benefits of vaccination to the pregnant woman outweigh the potential risks.” It adds that women should be told about “current limitations of safety data in pregnant women.” Likewise, the CDC also states that “results from ongoing long-term studies are not yet available.”
Nevertheless, Zink claimed that Covid shots are “safer than Tylenol” and asserted that “every major society” recommends that women get them.
In truth, 36 countries do not recommend Covid shots for pregnant women, and another 19 countries only permit the jabs with qualifications. This comes from the COVID-19 Maternal Immunization Tracker which provides a global snapshot of public health policies around the globe.
Oddly, Zink understands why women might be hesitant to get a Covid shot while pregnant, saying she was “paranoid” about every piece of cheese, meat or sip of coffee when she was pregnant.

“I gave it up immediately, as soon as I found out I was pregnant because I didn’t want to do anything to potentially hurt my baby,” she told Murkowski.
But when it comes to experimental shots, women should think differently, Murkoff told Murkowski.
“We’re going to try and change some hearts and minds today – that’s for sure – and get some sleeves rolled up for women who are planning for pregnancy,” she said, adding that she also wants breastfeeding moms to get vaxxed.
“Of course, you’re going to worry about whether you should get the Covid vaccine because it’s something else you’re putting in your body and you’re not sure whether you should,” Murkoff said. “So that’s legit. It’s completely legit.”
That said, Murkoff expressed frustration that many moms spread “misinformation” to other moms about the potential dangers from a Covid shot. She suggested that moms keep their pregnancy advice limited to “non-medical opinions” and defer to “experts” when it comes to Covid jabs.
“Opinions of other moms isn’t what you want to look for when you’re thinking about – when you’re on the fence about getting the Covid vaccine,” she said. “Let’s leave the decisions about getting the Covid vaccine to the experts like Dr. Zink and the CDC…”
