Stunningly Huge Cancer Threat Uncovered

Breast-Cancer[1]By: Bob Unruh

A new meta-analysis of studies concludes that a single abortion raises the  risk of breast cancer for a woman by an astonishing 44 percent.

Professor Joel Brind, a science adviser for the Coalition  on Abortion/Breast Cancer who reached a similar conclusion in 1996, called  the finding a “real game-changer” in the controversy over the link between  abortion and breast cancer.

The analysis by Yubei  Huang, published in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer Causes and Control,  looked at all 36 studies that have been done in China regarding the risk of  developing breast cancer for women who have had at least one induced  abortion.

The risk rocketed 44 percent, Huang found, after one abortion. After two, the  risk rose to 76 percent. After three, it climbed to 89 percent.

Brind said his 1996 study was attacked by abortion advocates “entrenched in  universities, medical societies, breast cancer charities, journals, and  especially, government agencies like the National Cancer Institute,” the  NCI.

“In reality, the NCI is just another corrupt federal agency like the IRS and  the NSA,” he asserted.

Brind said that despite the evidence, abortion advocates “have viciously been  attacking pro-life pregnancy resources centers (PRCs) for ‘lying’ to women by  telling them about the ABC link as a reality.”

But now comes the confirming Chinese study.

“Not only does it validate the earlier findings from 1996, but its findings  are even stronger,” he said.

First, it documents a 44 percent breast cancer risk increase with a single  abortion.

It also confirms the “dose effect,” that more abortions results in a higher  risk, he said.

“Risk factors that show such a dose effect have more credibility in terms of  actually causing the disease,” he noted.

Third, he pointed out the China study’s statement that the “lack of a social  stigmas associated with induced abortion in China may limit the amount of  underreporting.”

Other studies, she said, have been attacked based on the assumption that many  women have abortions but won’t admit it, keeping their healthy results out of  the study tabulations.

That “line of attack,” he said, “has now been neutralized.”

And he noted studies from India and Bangladesh earlier this year “reported  breast cancer risk increases of unprecedented magnitude: over 600 percent and  over 2,000 percent, respectively, among women who had any induced  abortions.”

Americans must pay attention, he said, because of the pending U.S. Supreme  Court cases over Obamacare’s required coverage of abortion and  contraceptives.

He noted the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer and the Breast Cancer  Prevention Institute have  filed briefs in the cases.

‘Women do want to know’

Dr. Jane Orient, a spokeswoman for the Association of American Physicians and  Surgeons, told WND it is outrageous that American health care providers are  not more aggressive and deliberate in warning women of the risk of a fatal  cancer if they choose to abort.

“Women do want to know,” she said. “The abortion interests do not want them  to know this. The medical establishment has been behind the effort to conceal it  [the link].”

Reggie Littlejohn, whose organization Womens  Rights Without Frontiers focuses on China’s forced-abortion policy, said the  warning to women around the world is clear.

“Obviously this does not simply apply to Chinese women, but to all women.  When we’re talking about informed consent in the U.S., women need to be informed  of the very strong link between abortion and breast cancer,” she said.

She said the documentation turns the Chinese policy of one-child limits and  forced abortion into secondary women’s rights violations. The first violation is  when hundreds of thousands of unborn girls are aborted each year in a society  that stands on the primacy of males. The second is when an aborted baby girl’s  mother faces the much higher risk of breast cancer.

Her organization noted the Chinese work was done by a team of epidemiologists  from Tianjin Medical University Cancer Hospital.

The study found induced abortion “significantly associated with an increased  risk of breast cancer among Chinese females, and the risk of breast cancer  increases as the number of IA increases.”

Historically, China had had a low breast cancer rate compared to Western  nations, but over the last two decades the rate has “increased at an alarming  rate,” the study said.

The increase was parallel to China’s one-child policy, which includes forced  abortions, the report said.

“This groundbreaking study reveals yet another human rights violation in  connection with China’s one-child policy: Forcibly aborted women are also at  significantly higher risk of breast cancer,” Littlejohn said.

“Not only do the women of China have to endure the tremendous trauma of  late-term forced abortion, taking their babies from them; but also, years later,  breast cancer, taking their health and even their lives from them,” she  said.

Littlejohn said the strong association of abortion and breast cancer  established by the new study “brings the women’s rights violations under the one  child policy to a new level: a woman pregnant in China without a birth permit is  subjected to both government-imposed forced abortion, and also breast cancer as  a result of it.”

“Where abortion is forced, the subsequent development of breast cancer  becomes a violation of women’s rights in itself,” she said.

The study looked at 36 articles (two cohort studies and 34 case-control  studies) covering 14 provinces in China.

Just months ago, the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association,  JAMA, published a study showing the rate of metastatic breast cancer in women  ages 25 to 39 nearly doubled between 1976 and 2009, from 1.53 to 2.9 per  100,000.

The American Council on Science and Health calls the increase “slight.” But  at the time, Orient pointed out there has been no corresponding increase in  older women.

Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast  Cancer, said it was “utterly stunning” that lead author Rebecca Johnson’s  team called the increased incidence in advanced cancers among young women “small.”

“That’s a nearly doubled increase in the incidence of a disease with a mean  five-year fatality rate of 69 percent,” she said. “By contrast, the mean  five-year fatality rate among women with breast cancers that have not spread to  distant sites is 13.2 percent.”

And what distinguishes the younger women from the older? The sexual  revolution, said Orient.

“Young women in huge numbers have taken higher doses of hormones than their  menopausal sisters – in birth-control pills,” she said.

It was in 2005 when the World Health Organization classified oral  contraceptives as Class-1 carcinogens, one of only about 100 substances found to  be “carcinogenic in humans.”

Orient said breast cancer is generally hormone sensitive and is often treated  with anti-estrogens. Pregnancy is the most important cause of a high estrogen  level.

She noted estrogen increases by 2,000 percent by the end of the first  trimester, increasing cancer vulnerability. However, by the end of pregnancy, 85  percent of breast-cancer tissue has become cancer-resistant because of hormones  made by the fetal-placenta presence.

That means a completed pregnancy protects against breast cancer. The  protection is lost when a pregnancy is aborted, making a woman even more  vulnerable to breast cancer.

Buried by politics

Orient said there have been dozens of studies that have shown a significant  increase in breast cancer in women who have had an abortion.

In 2010, Bradley Mattes, executive director of the Life Issues Institute told WND that for years, major  research institutes have denied any link between abortion and breast cancer  because the issue has been “politicized.”

“It’s not politically correct to acknowledge that,” said Mattes. “It took  many years for the link between smoking and lung cancer to be acknowledged.”

“They deny there’s a link between abortion and breast cancer,” Mattes told  WND at the time. “Even if the media came down and hit them in the head, I don’t  believe that they’d change their mind because they believe abortion is a  positive.”

WND reported  in 2007 a study showed abortions could be classified as carcinogens, because  the number of breast cancer cases could be predicted reasonably accurately based  on the number of abortions in a given population.

The study, “The Breast Cancer Epidemic: Modeling and Forecasts Based on  Abortion and Other Risk Factors,” was done by Patrick S. Carroll of London-based  research institute PAPRI. The results were published in the Journal of American  Physicians and Surgeons.

The study showed that among risk factors, abortion is the “best predictor of  breast cancer.”

WND reported in 2005 that  for the first time, an abortion clinic had accepted an order of judgment for  performing the procedure without informing the patient of psychological risks  and increased risk of breast cancer.

The lawsuit against the All Women’s Health Services clinic in Portland, Ore.,  was the second of its kind in the U.S. to be successfully prosecuted but the  first to obtain a judgment.

Jonathan Clark, attorney for the 19-year-old plaintiff, told WND he believed  the judgment “makes a pretty powerful statement about the science,” indicating  the clinic was not willing to argue against the claim that there is a link  between abortion and breast cancer.

In 2010,   WND columnist Jill Stanek, a pro-life  activist,  also reported on the link between birth control and breast cancer.

The  Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer has posted online links to various  studies on the subject, and Stanek wrote about  a 2009 study in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention.

The 2009 study found a 40 percent increased risk of contracting breast cancer  under the age of 40 if a woman has had an abortion.
