I think the link between abortion and breast cancer has been known for years. The link was probably minimized because the stigma attached to abortion would cause women in studies not to admit it. I wonder what the morning after pill being used as birth control is going to do to breast cancer numbers.

The other link that's been hypothesized but never verified is one between underwire bras and breast cancer.

I don't know if this meta-study was based on self-reporting (always the least reliable way to get information) or correlating medical records, or both.

Meta-analysis is even trickier when different studies use different definitions, different data sources or different verification criteria.

However, the article implies that the statistical methodology here was quite sound. I expect the Abortion Industry to come down on it with a blizzard of obfuscation, shuffling and denial in 3 - 2- 1 . . . . .

Big abortion needs to be sued like big tobacco was - because Brind’s meta-analysis has been out there since 1996 and yet abortionists have NOT been warning prospective patients about the risks. Some lawyer could get rich off of women with breast cancer - especially if they’re now having their health insurance taken out from underneath them - suing those who refused to tell them that they were 50+% more likely to get breast cancer if they had an abortion...

In Australia the ABC link legally HAS to be disclosed by doctors and abortionists, as a result of a study whose results were initially expunged by the academic community: there is a higher correlation between a first-trimester abortion and breast cancer than there is for a FAMILY HISTORY of breast cancer, which to this day is touted by American doctors as being the reason to have or not have an early mammogram.

We’re talking SERIOUS LIABILITY issues for everybody who has lied to women about the dangers of abortion - ESPECIALLY the most-common ones: first trimester abortion of a first pregnancy.
