New study finds that abortion increases risk of breast cancer by 40%

Story here from Life Site News. (H/T Andrew)


U.S. National Cancer Institute researcher Dr. Louise Brinton, who was the chief organizer of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) workshop in 2003 that persuaded women that it was “well established” that “abortion is not associated with increased breast cancer risk,” has reversed her position and now admits that abortion and oral contraceptives raise breast cancer risks.

An April 2009 study by Jessica Dolle et al. of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center examining the relationship between oral contraceptives (OCs) and triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), an aggressive form of breast cancer associated with high mortality, in women under age 45, contained an admission from Dr. Brinton and her colleagues that abortion raises breast cancer risk by 40%.

The study found that “a statistically significant 40% increased risk for women who have abortions” exists, and that a ” 270% increased risk of triple negative breast cancer (an aggressive form of breast cancer associated with high mortality) among those who used oral contraceptives while under age 18 and a 320% increased risk of triple negative breast cancer among recent users (within 1-5 years) of oral contraceptives,” also exists.

This means that women who start using OCs before age 18 multiply their risk of TNBC by 3.7 times and recent users of OCs within the last one to five years multiply their risk by 4.2 times.

“Although the study was published nine months ago,” stated Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, in a press release, “the NCI, the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and other cancer fundraising businesses have made no efforts to reduce breast cancer rates by issuing nationwide warnings to women.

Remember, Obama is trying to pass a bill that contains taxpayer funding for abortion. With abortions taxpayer-funded, we should expect the number of abortions to increase. And that means that the frequency of breast cancer will also increase.

  1. Unfortunately, yet not surprisingly, Wikipedia is still defiance:

    “This position contrasts with the scientific consensus that abortion does not cause breast cancer.”

    They cleverly use ‘does not cause breast cancer’ when what has been found is that it significantly increases breast cancer. They’re two slightly different things, but people need to be informed.


  2. also cleverly wrote “As of 2008, the scientific evidence does not support the notion that abortion of any kind raises the risk of breast cancer.”

    So what about 2009 study then?


  3. It speaks volumes that these anti-breast cancer groups are silent on the link between abortion and breast cancer while at the same time being loud and clear on all the other risk factors for breast cancer.

    This is yet another proof that the left doesn’t really care about science, even though they constantly pay lip service to it.

    Their ideology comes before ANYTHING else, and whatever gets in the way of their ideology is discarded, derided, or ignored.
