Abortions Have Statistically Significant 17% Increased
Breast Cancer Risk -- Scientist Argues Researchers Underestimated Risk
Chinese researchers Peng Xing and his colleagues conducted a
case-control study in Northeast China examining reproductive factors
associated with subtypes of breast cancer. They found a statistically
significant overall odds ratio of 1.17 (17% increased breast cancer
risk for all subtypes combined) among women with induced abortions. 
Earlier this year, a Turkish study reported a statistically significant
66% increased risk for women with abortions.  Both studies show
that, when honest research is conducted outside the control of the U.S.
National Cancer Institute and other Western governmental agencies or
organizations tethered to abortion ideology and politics, the truth
emerges that abortion raises risk. Studies reporting no abortion-breast
cancer (ABC) link were proven in medical journals to be stupendously
flawed (fraudulent). [3-13]
"The Chinese and the Turkish studies are relevant considering the
debate over government-funded abortion through healthcare reform," said
Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer.
"Government-funded abortion means more dead American women from breast
American researchers say Chinese studies on the ABC link exclude the
possibility of a flaw called "report bias" because abortion isn't
stigmatized in China.  Communist officials forcibly abort women
after first full term pregnancy (FFTP), so Chinese women are considered
reliable reporters of their abortions.
Professor Joel Brind (Baruch College, City University of New York)
maintains that Chinese studies underestimate the risk of abortion
because of its high prevalence in China. Commentary
Xing et al. found an increase in risk associated with having more
children (multiparity) among women who delayed FFTP and never
Regarding breast cancer subtypes, the numbers of women within the
subgroups are so small that no conclusions can be reached.
