Bill Will Reduce Breast Cancer
Breast cancer kills 180,000 women a year in the United
States. Assembly Bill 169 (AB 169) will reduce the incidence
of breast cancer in Nevada. AB 169 would require dissemination
of information concerning the scientific link between
induced abortion and the increased risk of breast cancer.
Since abortion is almost never used for health reasons,
abortion is the most avoidable of all breast cancer risks!
- 10 out of 11 research studies of American women and
nearly 30 studies world wide indicate that abortion
is a contributing factor to breast cancer. (Correction
13 out of 14 American Studies)·
- Researcher Janet Daling reported a 50 percent increased
risk of breast cancer for women who have had induced
abortions in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
Daling also found that:
- Women aborting for the first time after age 30 experienced
a 110% increased risk.
Women with a family history of breast cancer aborting
for the first time after 30 faced a 270% risk increase.
- Every woman in her study with a family history of
breast cancer who aborted before she was 18, developed
breast cancer before they were 45.
- Other teens aborting before the age of 18 faced a
150 percent increased risk.
Nothing in this legislation denies or impedes access
to an abortion.
Nevada women, especially our teens and preteens and women
of all ages who have had abortions, have a right to know
about these risks. The political and financial interests
of the abortion industry must not interfere with the future
health of adolescent girls. With the push to find the
cure, this legislation makes sense for Nevada.
