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

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 of the People's Republic. There is no bigger data base than China, where there is an average of 8.2 million pregnancy terminations every year, and 40 abortions for every 100 live births. 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.

Huang's study shows an even stronger increase than the 30% higher risk found in the 1996 meta-analysis by Joel Brind and colleagues on abortion as an independent risk factor for breast cancer. The Brind meta-analysis, combining the results of 23 studies, gave a more complete view than any single study. But even though it was the most comprehensive study on the topic at the time, it was disregarded by establishment medical groups.

Brind, a professor of biology and endocrinology at Baruch College, is not unique in having experienced censorship of his findings for the past two decades, including at the notorious National Cancer Institute (NCI) workshop on "Early reproductive events and breast cancer"

Look for the thoroughly corrupt American MSM to bury the findings of this study. I predict it will be reported nowhere in America.

Liberalism is a pagan religion. Abortion is the human sacrifice offering of that religion.

Certainly not everyone who has had breast cancer has had an abortion....

..but the direct correlation in study after study has been made......and buried through the years.

China should know a little bit about abortion.....(sarcasm)

Watching to see if this gets traction.

The correct correlation is abortion in null-parous women.

That is to say: women who have never had a child and who have had an abortion are more likely to have breast cancer.

Watch for the liberals to try and ‘refute’ these findings by pointing to medical statistics on women who have had children before having an abortion.
