We’ve been discussing it here for weeks (click ‘Breast Cancer’ in the Categories sidebar). Now the National Cancer Institute Admits the link between Breast Cancer, abortion and the pill.
Update and Correction: A commenter in the comboxes rightly points out that NCI has not changed its position. I should have stated that this same researcher who led the charge against a link by prematurely pronouncing on two longitudinal studies now finds herself betrayed by her own data.
From Lifesite News:
WASHINGTON, DC, January 7, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – U.S. National Cancer Institute researcher Dr. Louise Brinton, who was the chief organizer of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) workshop in 2003 that persuaded women that it was “well established” that “abortion is not associated with increased breast cancer risk,” has reversed her position and now admits that abortion and oral contraceptives raise breast cancer risks.
An April 2009 study by Jessica Dolle et al. of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center examining the relationship between oral contraceptives (OCs) and triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), an aggressive form of breast cancer associated with high mortality, in women under age 45, contained an admission from Dr. Brinton and her colleagues that abortion raises breast cancer risk by 40%.
The study found that “a statistically significant 40% increased risk for women who have abortions” exists, and that a ” 270% increased risk of triple negative breast cancer (an aggressive form of breast cancer associated with high mortality) among those who used oral contraceptives while under age 18 and a 320% increased risk of triple negative breast cancer among recent users (within 1-5 years) of oral contraceptives,” also exists.
This is good news and bad news. It’s bad news for women who have swallowed the lie that abortion and contraceptive sex are perfectly acceptable choices, without consequences.
It’s good news because women need to understand who stands for truth, who stands for their best interests. It isn’t the Democrat Party.
It’s also good news because we can begin to exert some significant leverage in restoring a Culture of Life and a Civilization of Love.
