Another Study Links Abortion and Breast Cancer

Who's waging a "war on women"?

Confirming the findings of a previous study, a new study has found that the risk of breast cancer spikes among women who have had at least one abortion and skyrockets among women who have had two or more. The study, which examined results of several other studies and was published in the peer-reviewed journal Cancer Causes and Control, found that women who had at least one induced abortion increased their risk of developing breast cancer by 44%. Women who had two abortions increased their risk by 76%, and women who had three abortions saw an 89% increase in risk. According to the study’s authors, these results “were consistent with a previously published systematic review,” which found the risk of breast cancer increased by 30% among women who had at least one induced abortion.

Ironically, even after the original study was released, Susan G. Komen, the largest breast cancer charity and research organization worldwide, continued to fund Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the nation’s largest abortion provider. Last year, Komen briefly halted its PPFA funding but quickly caved to political pressure from the pro-abortion camp and restored funding to the abortion mill. Given this latest study further confirming the abortion-breast cancer link, we urge Komen to live up to its stated mission and stop funding Planned Parenthood for good. And we urge all those who claim to be pro-women to start warning women of the true risks of abortion.
