Does anyone know anything about this journal?
“Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) is an open access and peer-reviewed, scholarly journal. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the Science, Technology and Medicine.
“All manuscripts are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks.”
Two of the authors of this paper seem to have had no other publications – both of them, Felicia M Clements and Jamie Ryan Pillette, are liberal arts graduates. Shaw and Tomljenovic are widely reported to be leading lights in the anti-vaccine world – they had a paper retracted in Vaccine last year – and John W Oller is an expert on language acquisition. One published article of his that I can find is this, http://www.icr.org/article/words-genetic-linguistic-problems-for-evolution/ , sub-titled “Evidence for Creation”.
I would be very interested and grateful to hear from those who are better qualified to assess the content of this paper than me. If true, this would be a terrible scandal; if not, this would fan the flames of distrust of medicine. I would like to offer feedback to the many members of science journalism associations in Kenya and East Africa.

If the intention is to reduce population burden on natural resources, the sleazy, hare-brained tactic is doomed to backfire from the start.
And they've been doing it for DECADES. The "ignorant" third world country people who believe in the "conspiracy theory" that the vaccines supplied by the charitable west and people like Bill Gates, are actually infertility shots and refused them, well, turn out to be right.
'Published research shows that by 1976 WHO researchers had conjugated tetanus toxoid (TT) with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) producing a “birth-control” vaccine. Conjugating TT with hCG causes pregnancy hormones to be attacked by the immune system. ...... By November 1993 Catholic publications appeared saying an abortifacient vaccine was being used as a tetanus prophylactic.'
