New study from China
helps to prove the Abortion-
Breast Cancer Link

American Thinker, by Mary L. Davenport, MD

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 12/2/2013 6:38:37 AM

In the US we are used to abortion advocates claiming that the risk of elective abortion is relatively trivial, and major medical organizations denying any link between abortion and breast cancer. Now a powerful new study from China published last week by Yubei Huang and colleagues suggests otherwise. The article, a meta-analysis pooling 36 studies from 14 provinces in China, showed that abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by 44% with one abortion, and 76% and 89% with two and three abortions. This new article is another example of the recent excellent scholarship on abortion in peer-reviewed journals coming out

The cover-up of this link in this country is a scandal.

Common sense tells you that jerking hormones around like that is asking for trouble. Most likely feminist reaction will be the old it´s-our-body-and-I´ll-do-what-I-want.

Agreed #2. The democrat party will not allow this study to stand. Their abortion sacrament must be protected at all costs. They may be able to prevent this study from having the impact it should, but they can´t prevent the real life consequences that result from abortions. Why do the democrats persist in their war against babies? They are totally innocent and did not ask to be conceived, yet 55+ million have been killed since Roe v. Wade. When can we call it what it is, genocide?

Chinese researchers and physicians are unencumbered by abortion politics, and do not cover up data showing long term effects of induced abortion, as do their US counterparts in governmental, professional and consumer organizations.

The hot-button issue of abortion in America prevents news outlets and scientific studies from revealing the link between abortion and cancer. Imagine -- in order to preserve "women´s choice", our government and media will countenance this coverup.

I guess the woman´s life doesn´t matter either so long as her "right to choose" stays intact. This is about as misandrist as it gets.

If there is no link, then why is it a standard question when you´re diagnosed with breast cancer? In a addition to being asked if anyone in my family had breast cancer, I was asked what age I was when I had my first child and if I´d had any abortions.

Yes, the lefties will attempt to destroy this study. But I expect they will also begin to minimize the importance of breasts.

Feminazis hate men and sex with men, and babies can be bottle-fed by someone else. Pre-emptive breast removal will be promoted and we´ll all be unisexed or nonsexed, and live in utopia.

This tells us something about the state of ´science´ and research in the Western-World. We have began to lie to ourselves on a massive scale for political reasons that are mostly supportive of the liberal-progressive agenda. It has happened also with ´global warming,´ the ´ozone´ issue, lead paint, multiculturalism and many other issues. Those who pay (usually government) for these ´studies´ also pay for the result they desire. It also says a great deal about our ´scientists´ and ´researchers´ - that is, they´ll ´find´ whatever is required to keep their funding, social position and lifestyle.

What can one believe in? There is only One who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. There is only one rock. Do not put your faith in man - it´s clear he lies - not only to others, but to himself as well.

The medical term for any interrupted pregnancy is "abortion," and it includes spontaneous miscarriages, which are surprisingly common, as well as intentionalt terminations. It would be useful to know how the term is defined before getting all excited. and whether the same is true in Japan and Sweden, where abortions are preferred to birth control pills.

And abortion is only one of a number of factors influencing breast cancer risk, such as family history, use of hormones, and age at first childbirth.

We already know about the link between HRT (hormone replacement therapy) and cancer ... I´m waiting for news about the risks of birth control pills.

This actually fits right in to the leftist nirvana of a woman’s right to choose. The SCOTUS was about privacy and the right to privacy. It was twisted into a woman’s right to ‘choose’. And the leftist propaganda machine has hammered American´s into believing it’s a ´right´. Well, now it is a ´right´. And it’s the right to decide who dies. Either kill one´s baby or kill yourself with breast cancer. After all, it’s a woman´s right to choose who dies. Where there is death, there will always be death.

#12, you are right in that there needs to be a lot of fearless, unbiased research all along these linked female health topics.

The current research is raising huge questions about the massive hormonal jiggery-pokery foisted upon millions of women, whether via the hormonal contraceptives --- pill, patch, injection or implant --- or via HRT, or environmental contamination with endocrine disruptors in the water (a lot of which got there through the effluent of millions of contraceptive users.)

As for the abortion connection, it seems that the most significant effect is when aborting the first pregnancy after the point where the breast tissue starts its pre-lactation differentiation. If the lactation developmental process is started, and then abnormally disrupted by a termination of pregnancy, the breast tissue is very vulnerable to cancerous cellular changes.

Women´s bodies (and minds and hearts) are fine-tuned and intricately balanced around the normal cycles of fertility. It has been thus since Mitochondrial Lucy or Mother Eve, whichever you prefer. Throw a chemical "wrench" into the gearbox, and expect -- well, derangement. I´ll leave it at that.

The author states that the study shows a 44% increase in breast cancer risk after one IA, but that number might be a little too high. Her link to the underlying paper shows that 1.44 was the odds ratio, not the relative risk. I´m thinking that it might be a little closer to a 40% increase in risk.

I´ve noticed a lot of articles about increased breast cancer incidence rates in China. Some of the other factors mentioned are pollution, dietary changes, and higher rates of diagnostic testing. These would be confounders that the study´s authors would have had to deal with (and I´m not saying that they didn´t).

This study, just like all studies, needs to be looked at carefully and repeated in other countries. There could be other factors involved when they come to their conclusions. Too many studies ´know´ the results they want before they start. As a breast cancer survivor who had no abortions I am one of those not included in their results. The biggest problem in this country (and perhaps others) is thinking there are no downsides to unprotected sex and the constant drumbeat that the only important thing in a relationship (long-term or one-nighter)is sex, sex, sex.

Women´s hormones make a crashing change even giving live birth and keeping the baby, e.g., post partum depression.

However, the psychological trauma inherent in the Chinese system certainly must be a factor, not to mention their adopting more Westernized diets.

As it pertains to pro-choice women, a study like this wouldn´t matter for it´s all a means to an end, and it´s just another death panel.

I don´t care what a female does with her body. I do care what a female does with the person inside her. You know, the person with a different DNA. If the female chooses not to protect the person inside her that she is responsible for, then it is murder. The unborn is not part of her body. It is a separate identity with it´s own DNA.

#12, re whether the study takes into account the difference between induced abortion and spontaneous abortion...

Every health history questionnaire I´ve ever filled out at the doctor´s office has distinguished between the two. Usually these questionnaires provide the patient with clarifying language, e.g. supplying the word "miscarriage" in parentheses next to the box for spontaneous abortion.

Also, any researcher with his or her salt is not going to lump the two together -- certainly not without noting any possible conflation in the study´s conclusions.

I know I´ll get stomped but I have to speak up now and then. I understand where you are all coming from regarding abortion. Have any of you read what happened in England a year or so ago? A woman was drugged and forced into a cesarean because those in charge decided she was no longer fit to carry her baby. No family was involved in this decision. So, the way I see this is all of you want absolute control of a woman´s body from the second she gets pregnant til the second she delivers. Then you fade into the woodwork. I see no difference in this way of thinking than what the bozo´s in England were thinking when they did the forced surgery. By the way, they still have the child. They refuse to give it to the mother or any of her family.

Hormones are obviously involved in breast cancer.

Not only are BC patients questioned about their history of abortions, child-bearing, etc., but many breast surgeons choose to coordinate the patient´s surgery with their menstrual cycle, citing better outcomes.

The left promises protection of sexual freedom without the consequences humankind has had to face since well before human kind, and leverages that protection to abscond with all other freedoms. You can have unbridled jollies of any sort but you will have to pay homage to their choices on everything else. Yet somehow the most ardent protectors of the greatest individual freedom ever known are painted as the ones to fear because many of them believe their defense of your rights started before birth.

#390, it´s not a matter of the state having absolute control over a woman´s body,but having the reasonable power to prevent assaults on her baby --- which is also a matter of preventing assaults againsr HER.

The forced drugging-caesarian-abduction of the baby on the part of the NHS in the UK, is not a case of "reasonable" power to prevent assaults on the baby --- rather, it was an overt, multiple assault on the mother. It is not only unethical: it is criminal. I don´t know what the law is in the UK, but in the USA she could and should have brought criminal charges for assault, battery, and kidnapping.

She should also be able to bring a lawsuit and sue the system and every individual in it, who took part in this shockingly tyrannical act.

Don´t confuse that with reasonable, protective prolife legislation. The UK situation was unjustified aggression against the woman, comparable to what the totalitarians do in China.

#30: "I see no difference in this way of thinking than what the bozo´s in England were thinking when they did the forced surgery."

Perhaps a change of glasses is in order, then, as the difference is huge.

No life should be subject to being terminated except if it is presenting a direct, immediate threat to the life of another. A mother´s freedom from anxiety and desire for simplicity of life choices do not trump her baby´s right to live. The "reproductive rights" crowd doesn´t even see actual birth as a sacred barrier to a baby being murdered; European health care ethics (and U.N. guidelines, if we´re not careful) consider it a mother´s right to terminate her motherhood (i.e. end her baby´s life) after its birth (abortion and euthanasia proponents have demanded the right to retroactive abortions up to age 4).

Many people explain low fertility rates in the West as a fruit of women finally having control over how many babies they have. But there´s evidence that the birth dearth is explained by a large portion of women not having as many babies as they want. Pew looks at surveys of European women near the end of their childbearing years and finds that while most have as many children as they want, about 30 percent have fewer than they would want. Only ten percent have more. In the U.S., 40 percent of women near the end of their childbearing years have fewer children

MEDFORD, Ore. — Hauling a truckload of logs to a Southern Oregon mill last fall, Chris Hill noticed a sheriff’s deputy behind him and flashed his lights to warn a UPS driver coming the other way. The deputy pulled over Hill on U.S. Highway 140 in White City and handed him a $260 ticket for improperly using his headlights, saying another deputy had seen the flashing lights from behind the UPS truck and alerted him to stop the log truck because of the signaling. Outraged, Hill decided to fight the ticket, and on Wednesday, a Jackson County Justice Court judge

Talking about Obamacare’s effects is one thing; seeing hard data is another. Heritage’s newly updated Obamacare in Pictures has 15 charts that show the law’s effects on Americans—from canceled insurance policies to new taxes, Medicare cuts, reduced choice for plans, and more. Here’s a quick look at just three of these charts and how Obamacare is hitting three groups. YOUNG PEOPLE Obamacare says you can stay on your parents’ health insurance until you turn 26. This chart looks at what happens after that—if don’t have employer-sponsored insurance and you have to get insured through Obamacare. If you’re trying to save for a car or

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
