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.
