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.
