    The Connection Between Abortion and Breast Cancer

    In 1998 researchers noted that there was a 40 percent increase in breast cancer and that breast cancer was now a young woman’s disease.  When researchers looked at the three oldest groups of women, ages 50-64, 65-74, and 75 and older, only the younger group, 50-64 had breast cancer increases between 1987 and 1998.  

    That dramatic rise in breast cancer was seen in the first group of women young enough to have had abortions when Roe v Wade made abortion legal.  28 out of 37 international studies show a link between abortion and breast cancer.  Many experts know this, but the subject is too political.  

    The power of the connection is that it has a biological explanation. Immediately below are a couple links from the The Coalition On Abortion-Breast Cancer.  The following is from their Biological Explanation Page.   Read down the page for other links.  Note, that there is a lot of political posturing that abortion does not at all increase the risk of breast cancer, but there have a been a couple lawsuits in which women-who did not develop breast cancer-nonetheless were able to win awards/settlements for the failure of abortion clinics to disclose this risk.  This means that you can posture in public and fool people and mislead the public, but when you get before a jury, things change.

    Two questions Nevada LIFE hears about the abortion breast cancer link.

    Will everyone who has an induced abortion develop breast cancer?  No.  The claim is that there is an increased risk.  Women in some demographics are higher (see some of our past statements below).   The link between smoking and lung cancer provides an analogy.  Not everyone who smokes will develop lung cancer.  In fact most smokers will NOT develop lung cancer, but smoking poses enough of an increased risk that the government believes it necessary to warn the public that smoking could lead to lung cancer. 

    If the link is true, does that mean that every woman who develops breast cancer had an abortion?  No.  Abortion is a risk factor, not the sole cause.

    Attorney John Kindley

    Author of 'The Fit Between the Elements for an Informed Consent Cause of Action and the Scientific Evidence Linking Induced Abortion with Increased Breast Cancer Risk,' 1998 Wisconsin Law Review, Pages 1595-1644. Mr. Kindley is currently litigating a landmark abortion case, Mattson v. MKB Management Corporation dba Red River Women's Clinic. The Red River Women's Health Clinic in Fargo, N.D. is being sued for "false advertisement" for claiming there is no scientific research establishing an abortion-breast cancer link. According to the World Net Daily, "the case hinges on whether the following statement contained in a pamphlet from the Red River Women's Clinic is true: 'Anti-abortion activists claim that having an abortion increases the risk of breast cancer and endangers future child-bearing. None of these claims are supported by medical research or established medical organizations.'"

    Breast Cancer Prevention Institute with Joel Brind, PhD

    Joel Brind, Ph.D., is a Professor of biology and endocrinology at Baruch College of the City University of NY, where he has been teaching since 1986. His research on the connections between reproductive hormones and human disease has included breast cancer since 1982.

    Since 1992 Dr. Brind has written and lectured extensively on the connection between induced abortion and breast cancer. His peer-reviewed research paper on the subject, “Induced Abortion as an Independent Risk Factor for Breast Cancer: A Comprehensive Review and Meta-Analysis”, which he wrote in collaboration with colleagues at the Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, PA, appeared in the October, 1996 issue of the Journal of Epidemiology and community Health, Published by the British Medical Association.

    His Research has also recently been the subject of discussion in the most prominent medical journals, including the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, the New England Journal of Medicine and the British Medical Journal.

    Abortion advocates downplay the 28 out of 37 studies worldwide and 13 of 14 in the United States which say that a woman's risk of breast cancer is elevated by an induced abortion. They cite the "Danish" or Melbeye study's conclusion that there is no correlation between an increased risk between induced abortion and breast cancer. Dr. Brind's "Rotten In Denmark" analysis of this flawed study dhows that when pruned of its errors, the Melbeye study  shows an actual 40 percent elevated risk between induced abortion and breast cancer.

    Dr. Brind has been a guest on Voice For Life with Nevada LIFE President Don Nelson and Toni Berry.

    Nevada Life Statements On The Abortion Breast Cancer Connection.

    AB 580 Would Cut Incidence Of Cancer

    (Reno Gazette Journal, Las Vegas Review Journal, April 1999)

    Important legislation is being suppressed that would reduce the incidence of breast cancer for Nevada women. AB 580 would require that woman considering abortion be informed that abortion significantly increases her risk of contracting breast cancer. With such an important link established to this deadly disease, why can’t this bill get a hearing?

    Your call to the chair of the committee to hear this bill, Vivian Freeman at 384-2225, is necessary to make sure this important legislation is heard.

    Abortion is a silent, but significant contributing factor to breast cancer; silent in the fact that few are aware that 10 out of 11 research studies of American women, and 25 studies world wide, indicate that abortion is a contributing factor to breast cancer. (Note, it is now 13 out of 14 American studies and 27 worldwide)

    For example, the risks increase when abortion terminates a woman’s first pregnancy, when abortion is performed on teens, with repeat abortions (44 percent of all abortions); and the risk increases later in pregnancy (89% increase after the 18th week). Women with a family history of breast cancer who abort face a 270 percent risk increase.

    A recent study led by pro-choice researcher J.R. Daling found that women who have abortions face a 50 percent greater risk of developing breast cancer.

    Since abortion is almost never necessary for health reasons, abortion is the most avoidable of all risk factors for breast cancer.

    Do Nevada women considering abortion have the right to know to be informed that abortion is known to increase the risk of breast cancer?

    Assembly bill 580 (AB 580) ensures that women will have this information by which they can make a truly informed choice. It will provide this information to “schools and other locations where instruction on human sexuality is provided.”

    Unfortunately this bill is in danger of dying in committee without being read.

    Abortion advocates should not fear this legislation. This legislation will not restrict a woman’s right or access to abortion. Nor should abortion advocates fear this further damage to the reputation of abortion. Large majorities already reject the reasons women give for their abortions. But it’s clear they will not take away the right to do what they object to.

    This legislation is also good because people generally agree with President Clinton that we need less abortion, not more. If informed consent abortion counseling, including the explanation of risks contracting breast cancer, leads to less abortion, less teen promiscuity, fewer crisis pregnancies, and fewer deaths due to breast cancer, we all win. Who could be against less abortion and less consent?

    Some critics say that even if the abortion and breast cancer connection is true, a 50 percent increased risk actually results in few extra women contracting breast cancer. Such reasoning leads one to ask if the risk of breast cancer is truly so large as to warrant the all out effort to prevent and cure this horrible disease? We think it is.

    AB580 needs a hearing. Call Chairwoman Vivian Freeman’s office and your assembly representative at 384-2225 or 800-992-0973 and ask that this bill be acted upon. We can’t let abortion politics get in the way of good ethics, good medicine and common sense.

    Note, in the Las Vegas Review Journal article, we added this.

    "Critics of this research respond three ways. The Daling study is alleged to be flawed because of a recall bias. But Daling checked for bias and found none. Even if the bias was actually true in this case, other research where such recall bias is impossible, shows the same alarming increase of risk.

    " Second, a large study in Denmark was supposed to contradict any risk increase. But it horrendous flaws. It excluded the abortions of 60,000 who actually had abortions. Most of those in the study who had induced abortions were still too young to have developed breast cancer. Many were still teens. When stripped of these errors, this study finds the same risk increase."
