New Mega-Study Shows (Again) Abortion/Breast Cancer Link

In a new American Thinker article — a startling article, by the way, for those whose only knowledge of the subject comes from the mainstream media — Dr. Mary L. Davenport explores the latest mega-study from China that points to a very definite link between abortion and breast cancer.

In the U.S. 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 are 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 U.S. counterparts in governmental, professional and consumer organizations…

This data is quite inflammatory to those politically correct ideologues who fear that abortion might face limitations, criticism or even concern. Women’s health isn’t the real issue for such people — an enthusiasm for abortion (undetered by any evidence of long term health risks) is. In fact, later on in this article you see remarkable examples of this.
