I see very good reasons for putting the young, including the unborn, into a different category from adults.
So does the FDA. That's why it has taken hundreds of millions of doses administered and followed up, before they even approved the mRNA vaccines for adults. Use in 12+ year olds is still under emergency use authorization only.
From April 2021, New England Journal (a source that a reasonable person would trust more than what TomC "sees"):
Preliminary findings did not show obvious safety signals among pregnant persons who received mRNA Covid-19 vaccines. However, more longitudinal follow-up, including follow-up of large numbers of women vaccinated earlier in pregnancy, is necessary to inform maternal, pregnancy, and infant outcomes.
Even at that point though, there were sufficient preliminary indicators to tip the balance in favor of giving mRNA vaccines to pregnant women:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and ACIP, in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Academy of Pediatrics, have issued guidance indicating that Covid-19 vaccines should not be withheld from pregnant persons.
Resistance to immunizing pregnant females is just a preference for the Devil you know over the Devil you don't, even though the Devil you know (COVID-19) has caused MILLIONS of deaths, and the Devil you don't, is responsible for ZERO deaths.
People are not uniformly rational.
