Study: abortion increases breast cancer risk by 193%
Catholic World News - October 14, 2010
A study conducted by Iranian university researchers and published in Medical Oncology has found that women who have had an abortion face a 193% greater chance of breast cancer. The study is the fifth in the last 18 months to link abortion with an increased risk of breast cancer.
An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

The increased risks for breast cancer among women who have had an abortion seem to be even higher than are being reported. If I didn't misread the abstract (at https://www.catholicculture.org/users/login.cfm), the Medical Oncology study found an increased risk of 293%. Another study found an increased risk of 345%. That study is here: http://download.journals.elsevierhealth.com/pdfs/journals/1877-7821/PIIS1877782110000317.pdf.

What irony! Some donate to Susan Komen Cancer fund to cure breast cancer while Komen fund donates $750,000 to Planned Parenthood (after denying it for years) for abortions which cause more breast cancer. Now that's some way to keep the money coming in...

You can bet the NYT will ignore ever last one of these studies, even if we paper the walls of the editors' offices with them. This is why I contribute to Catholic Culture and LifeSite News; the MSM only provide one side of the life issues stories. Thanks!
