CANCER, ABORTION LINKED?

In recent years, cases of breast cancer have erupted not only in America, but throughout the world.  What is helping to generate this widespread epidemic?  The answer may be alarming, according to Scott Sommerville, author of  "Legalized Abortion and the Sudden Increase of Breast Cancer."

There has been a number of published studies on the connection between abortion and breast cancer, indicating that
"women who have miscarriages or abortions before their first live birth are at 50% high risk in getting breast cancer than women who do not."  A study of 3,315 mothers, in Connecticut, revealed that women who had an abortion before their first live birth increased their chances of breast cancer as much as 350%.

In Russia, where abortion has been the only method of contraception, incidents of breast cancer has almost tripled between 1960 and 1987, among Russian, Estonian and Soviet Georgian women. 
"Abortion, alone, is the conceivable factor which has been equally present on both sides of the Iron Curtain."

At least 22 published studies have affirmed the finding of Malcolm Pike, who conducted the first complete study on the abortion / breast cancer connection in 1981.  A study directed in 1984 found that French women who had abortions had a 17% higher risk of breast cancer than women who did not abort their babies.  If these same women had two or more abortions, the risk of breast cancer increased to 58%.

In 1988, research was conducted by J.M. Yuan, M.C. Yu and R.K. Ross, who found that Chinese women under 40 who had obtained an abortion before their first live birth raised the chance of breast cancer by 140%.

A study performed on Swedish women by Britt-Marie Lindefors-Harris found that women who had an abortion after the birth of their first child
had a breast cancer risk of only 58%, while those women who aborted before their first live birth had a 109% risk factor.

These recent findings may startle many throughout our nation and the world, concerning the link between abortion and breast cancer.  We can clearly see, through these studies, that abortion is not as "safe and simple" as it is made out to be.
Abortion does not liberate. It kills!  Due to the consequences of their abortion decision, more and more women are dying with breast cancer.

Although, not all cases of breast cancer are caused by abortion, these surveys clearly reveal that the vast majority of these cases are.
If you
are one of the countless women whose abortion occurred after 1981, and you were not advised of the risk of breast cancer at the time of your abortion, you may want to seek legal assistance.


Again, abortion has never freed women.  The outcome of "My Life!  My choice!  My body!" could possible lead to death.  Your life and the life of your unborn child are worth so much more than that.
