The abortion–breast cancer hypothesis has been the subject of extensive scientific inquiry. The scientific community has concluded that abortion does not cause breast cancer. This consensus is supported by major medical bodies, including the World Health Organization, the U.S. National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
One of the tactics adopted by the mainstream pro-life movement is promoting an alleged ABC link. To continue to promote this pseudoscience is a deliberate obstruction of scientific research and dissemination of accurate medical information. I lived in Texas for almost three decades; it is a dreadful place where medical practitioners are required by law to inform women that they are increasing their chances of getting breast cancer by having an abortion, which is false information and deliberately deceitful. This dire warning is laden with religious and moral overtones, which should never, EVER creep into a doctor/patient relationship. And yet there it is, the law, in direct opposition to the Establishment Clause, manipulating fearful and vulnerable women with gleeful impunity.
Go ahead and post your links of “maybe” and “might” and “could be.” For all the science I offer here, you and your movement can find equal pseudoscience to post in opposition.
What does any of it matter to you if you have not had, or are not going to have, an abortion? If you have daughters or nieces or sisters, are you going to infuse them with misinformation and fear-mongering, or would you be willing to give them the best that real science has to offer?
By the way, your BCPI Fact Sheet on Abortion and Breast Cancer is from 2004.
I just don’t understand why the truth about this is so hard for you to swallow.
Oh, wait. Yes I do.
