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.

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…

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …

The Importance of English for Immigrants

With all the attention to the border security problem, and the challenges the nation is facing in regards to immigration, here are some thoughts on why learning English is of such importance to immigrants. More importantly, America would benefit greatly if we put a higher priority on getting immigrants to learn English. We are talking about improvements for the economy, reductions in crime, and much more.

Learning English allows an immigrant to:
1. Spread their wings beyond the urban Spanish-speaking enclaves. This, of course, leads to better integration, and a better understanding of what our country really looks like--nothing like "el barrio" in LA. But it also has implications as far as housing, jobs, and more. If an immigrant feels compelled to only live in certain areas to be close to other immigrants, this will place serious limitations on housing and jobs available. God knows housing prices are bad enough in LA and in Miami.

2. Improve on the job opportunities available.…
