Abortion connection cited in 300,000 extra breast-cancer deaths

Catholic World News - January 19, 2011

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer has estimated that abortion has led to 300,000 breast-cancer deaths in the US in the years since the Roe v. Wade decision. Dr. Joel Brind explained that his studies show a “30% great chance of developing breast cancer” among women who have procured an abortion. Applying that rate to the number of abortions in the US since 1973, and factoring in the mortality rate from the disease, he reaches the 300,000-death figure.

Karen Malec, the president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, said that 50 published studies since 1957 have confirmed a connection between abortion and breast cancer. The highly publicized studies dismissing that link are badly flawed, she said. “Like the tobacco/cancer cover-up, these are used to snow women into believing abortion is safe,” she said.
