Careful language used is not likely meant to be clear.

It's not. Read the article and nowhere it is suggesting that the vaccine is dangerous for pregnant women, with or without "careful" language.

People who know nothing about pregnancy could say that this shows that the Covid-19 vaccine is dangerous:

"Among 827 registry participants who reported a completed pregnancy, 104 experienced spontaneous abortions and 1 had a stillbirth."

But 10 to 15% of all pregnancies end with a miscarriage. The 104 women who had a spontaneous abortion and the women with the stillbirth are within these 10 to 15%.

Steve Kirsch is not an authority. He is the opposite. And he has no reference to anything regarding this article.

And yet he can't read an article. Nothing in the article suggests that the Covid-19 vaccine is dangerous for pregnant women. Quite the opposite is true.

Steve Kirsch is a well-known covid troll. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%22Steve+Kirsch%22+misinformation&t=hy&va=g&ia=web

The journal article he is referring to cites no warnings and indicates a cautious optimism, but calls for further study. Characterizing it as "no evidence that vaccines are safe for pregnant women" is Russian Troll level misinformation.

Some quotes from the article:

"These are reassuring data based on reports from pregnant women mostly vaccinated in the third trimester."

"In addition, rates of local and systemic reactions after vaccination among v-safe participants who identified as pregnant were similar to those in a larger group of nonpregnant women, which suggests that the physiologic changes in pregnancy do not materially affect such reactions."

"With the pandemic ongoing and pregnant women at high risk for serious illness if infected with Covid-19, vaccination is a critical prevention strategy."
