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.

This should tell us all we need to know about the Left and its adherents.

#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).

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can.

The debate over campaign contributions is never-ending for a simple reason: Both sides of the argument have merit. On the one hand, of course money is speech. For most citizens, contributing to politicians or causes is the most effective way to augment and amplify speech with which they agree. The most disdainful dismissers of this argument are editorialists and incumbent politicians who — surprise! — already enjoy access to vast audiences and don’t particularly like their monopoly being invaded by the unwashed masses or the self-made plutocrat. On the other hand, of course money is corrupting.

The problem with that claim is that, since 2009, the Justice Department has taken on only 39 voting rights cases—and as former Voting Section lawyer Christian Adams points out, only 13 were related to protecting minority voting rights. And, with respect to some of the cases in which the department has been involved, it lost spectacularly—such as its false claim that South Carolina’s voter ID law was discriminatory.

How do I get you to pay attention to this story? I could type out a balanced tale about an incremental change in White House spin and message control, relying on your discernment, patience, and kindness toward all the creatures of the Earth. Or, I could say that Barack Obama is a cynical and manipulative liar. (Snip) The second would excite the emotions. Conservatives would approve. Liberals would denounce it and point out the exaggerations. My editor would smile because the controversy would attract more readers. This is trolling. I´ve decided against it, but the White House has not.

Late last month the United States introduced a U.N. resolution condemning Russia’s de facto seizure of Crimea from Ukraine. As expected, the resolution passed the General Assembly easily. Unexpected, though, was the decision by Israel, long America’s most reliable U.N. vote (and vice versa), to absent itself from the ballot. This shook up the Obama administration. National Security Adviser Susan Rice met with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and demanded an explanation. Lieberman blandly blamed it on a strike at the foreign ministry. What was he supposed to do, ask Israeli diplomats to cross a picket line?

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen.

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million
