    Beijing, China ( -- A women's group that monitors the link between abortion and breast cancer is pointing to a new report released by the Chinese government showing cases of breast cancer are up by 40 percent. That's significant, the group says, because of the high incidence of both abortion and forced abortions in China. The Chinese Ministry of Health says 3.53 out of every 100,000 Chinese women died from breast cancer from 1990 to 1992. The fatality rate of breast cancer in the 1991-2000 period rose 38.7 percent for urban Chinese women, and 39.1 percent for those in rural...

    Dear Friends: I'd like to share with you my letter to the editor of the National Catholic Register addressing Patrick Novecosky's article (June 5-11, 2005) on the abortion-breast cancer research. Readers of our e-newsletter know that Novecosky's article last month discussed the publication of an eye-popping paper by Baruch College Professor Joel Brind.  Brind accused governmental agencies and others of using fraudulent research in an attempt to rub out the idea in the public mind that abortion is a risk factor for breast cancer. My letter to the editor could be entitled, "How governmental agencies and cancer fundraising businesses easily...

    A pro-life group in Texas is drawing attention to the Abortion Breast Cancer link and Planned Parenthood's relationship with the Susan G. Komen Foundation with a new billboard that raises serious questions -- and is drawing fire. Pro-Life Waco has set up a billboard on the 1700 block of Franklin Avenue that poses suggestive questions: "What? An abortion increases my risk for breast cancer? Why does the Komen Race grant $45,000 to Waco's Planned Parenthood abortion provider?" The billboard also shows a concerned woman and has a pink background –- a color now associated with the breast cancer awareness campaigns...
  • Glamour, Redbook blasted on abortion-cancer link

    Two leading women's magazines are misleading readers about the connection between abortion and breast cancer, an activist group contends. Last month it was Glamour, said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, "This month, it's Redbook, and it's Redbook's second attempt to erase the link from the public mind." Redbook's October issue includes an interview with Marissa Weiss, M.D., founder of the cancer fundraising business, Weiss said, "Two recent research reviews have found that abortion doesn't alter hormone levels in a way that could increase breast cancer risk, as some activists have claimed." Prof. Joel Brind of...

    DAYTON — After her best childhood friend died from breast cancer, Ruth Deddens began researching the causes of the dreaded disease. The Oakwood woman’s investigation eventually led her to Angela Lanfranchi, a clinical assistant professor of surgery at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Jersey and president of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute. Deddens, active in the “40 Days for Life” movement, decided to bring Lanfranchi to town as part of this year’s local pro-life campaign. Lanfranchi — who insists there are proven links between breast cancer, abortion and birth control pills — was the featured speaker at...
