7th Medical Organization Recognizes Abortion-Cancer Link; Int'l Group of Obstetricians, Gynaecologists Finds Significant Risk Increase

It's good news that more medical organizatinos are recognizing the link between abortion and breast cancer. True choice involves being informed, and knowing ALL the truth about abortion. While we are on the subject, check out this site. It has good information on abortion and related subjects.

This came from US Newswire:

Contact: Karen Malec of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, 877-803-0102 or response@abortionbreastcancer.com

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., Dec. 7 /U.S. Newswire/ -- MaterCare International issued a statement this week acknowledging a "significant increase in breast cancer risk after induced abortion," announced the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. It's the seventh medical organization to recognize that abortion raises risk, independently of the effect of delaying the birth of a first child (a known breast cancer risk).

The statement was issued just days after the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons published a review of 10 prospective studies by Professor Joel Brind. (1) Brind identified serious flaws in those studies. The statement said the 10 studies were "published in an attempt to discredit" a 1996 review and meta-analysis by Brind and his Penn State colleagues confirming an abortion-cancer link.

Besides the seven groups acknowledging the abortion-cancer link, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, called on doctors in 2003 to inform patients about a "highly plausible" link. Andrew Schlafly, the organization's general counsel, warned doctors this year that: 1) Two Americans and one Australian successfully sued their abortionists for failing to disclose the risks of breast cancer and emotional harm; 2) Failure to diagnose breast cancer (or diagnose it early) is the most common U.S. malpractice lawsuit; and 3) The abortion-cancer link is driving the malpractice crisis.

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…
