    April 21, 2015 ( – The American College of Pediatricians has made a statement advising women to be informed about the link between abortion and breast cancer – at the same time recognizing the medical establishment has been reticent to admit the connection.“Although the medical community has been reluctant to acknowledge the link, induced abortion prior to a full term delivery, and prior to 32 weeks of gestation, increases the likelihood that a woman will develop breast cancer,” the physicians' organization stated on April 7. “This risk is especially increased for adolescents.”“The American College of Pediatricians urges women to 'Know...

    As a two-time breast-cancer survivor, Eve Sanchez Silver once supported the Susan G. Komen organization in her personal fight against a disease affecting hundreds of thousands of U.S. women each year. But when she found out while serving on the groups National Hispanic/Latina Advisory Council that Komen was giving money to Planned Parenthood, the nations No. 1 abortion provider, she knew she had a problem.Here was a breast-health organization a very life-affirming organization, from my perspective funding an organization that essentially kills people. I couldnt understand why they thought that was okay. Sanchez Silver, a retired medical-research analyst...

    AURANGABAD, Maharashtra, India, April 30, 2014 ( – Having an abortion makes women 180 percent more likely to develop breast cancer, according to a new study produced by a fellow at Johns Hopkins. Researchers studied 220 women in the city of Aurangabad, India, and found the odds ratio (OR) for developing breast cancer significantly increased with the number of abortions a woman had. “We observed strong positive association of positive family history in first degree relatives (OR- 3.1:95%CI, 2.12-5.03), number of abortions (OR- 2.8:95%CI, 1.82-5.12) and past history of benign breast disease (OR- 1.8:95%CI, 1.-3.03) in cases of breast...

    A new study will leave pro-choicers nervous: The more pregnancies that are terminated, the higher the woman's cancer risk becomes. One in 10 new cancers worldwide is a female breast cancer.  And North American rates of breast cancer are the highest in the world. While there is no magic bullet assuring prevention, epidemiological studies provide us with long-established odds-boosting factors:  Have children;  have many children;  start early.  But these guidelines do not sit well with current social and cultural norms.  Consequently, one rarely (ever?) sees mention of them in breast cancer awareness campaigns.There is another, hotly-contested preventive strategy, the very...

    In 1996, the Brind quantitative meta-analysis of the extant induced abortion and breast cancer studies showed that there were 23 studies, 10 of which were statistically significant. Since then, there has been no tabulation to include the studies after 1997. An unpublished review in 2003 showed that there were 40 studies which showed a positive association between induced abortion and breast cancer.In 2004, the Beral re-analysis was purported to review the literature regarding the induced abortion breast cancer studies. There were many articles in the popular press asserting that this study showed that more accurate prospective studies did not show...

    In February 2003, Dr. Louise Brinton, the National Cancer Institute's chief of the Environmental Epidemiology Branch, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, served as chairperson at an NCI workshop in Bethesda, Md., to assess whether abortion was implicated as a breast cancer risk. In the opinion of "over 100 of the world's leading experts," said the subsequent NCI report, including Dr. Brinton, the answer was no. One expert disallowed from participating was Dr. Joel Brind, a biology and endocrinology professor who had co-authored a meta-analysis demonstrating an abortion/breast cancer (ABC) link. Brind protested that the outcome was predetermined by "experts"...

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.

    October was a little different, as pink ribbons seemed to be more abundant than pumpkins. It was National Breast Cancer Awareness Month again, and for the Breast Cancer establishment -- Komen Race for the Cure, the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC), et al. -- it's almost like Christmas season is for Macy's and Target. That's when these organizations make their big pitch for donations, and that pitch is usually some variation of the following: "(1)We don't know what causes breast cancer, (2) most women who get breast cancer have no known risk factors for the disease and (3)there's no cure...

News of this settlement comes to light as Australian legislators in Tasmania voted in favor of expanding access to abortion for women. The plaintiff's attorney in the lawsuit, Charles Francis, Queen's Counsel, had cautioned the parliamentarians about the possibility of increased litigation against abortion providers which might occur as a result of expanding abortion rights. "In Victoria, civil claims for negligence from women suing their abortionists are becoming much more common. Doctors haven't warned them and about 10 per cent have serious psychological repercussions," ...

    Whatever your personal, spiritual or scientific beliefs regarding abortion, you have the right to know the facts. Abortion-on-demand has been with us for over 30 years - far too long for most people to remember what the pro-abortion movement promised America in the years preceding Roe v. Wade. "Woman's Body, Woman's Right" - I want it because I want it - was only part of the sales package. Two other claims were made. One was that, when every child was a "wanted" child, unhappy marriages, divorce, child abuse, spousal abuse and sundry other woes and dysfunctions would evanesce. The other...

"There's no credible evidence of a link between induced abortion and breast cancer," Dr. Sandhya Pruthi wrote the woman on behalf of Mayo's web site.As proof, Mayo cites the National Cancer Institute, but the organization has come under fire as politically charged...
