Abortion Definitely Increases Breast Cancer Risk, Researcher Tells NRLC
by Steven Ertelt
June 14, 2007
Kansas City, KS (LifeNews.com) -- When you're
a leader in the abortion industry and you generate hundreds of millions of dollars from selling abortions to women, the last
thing you want to acknowledge is that abortion leads to breast cancer. And that's the problem Dr. Joel Brind described in
a talk at the 35th annual National Right to Life convention.
After 50 years of research showing a link between abortion and breast cancer and Brind,
a professor at Baruch College
in New York, says there now is "at least as much evidence of the cover-up [of
the link]as there is for the link itself."
Brind said the first study showing the abortion-breast cancer link was published in
Japan in 1957 and it showed that women who have abortions have two-three
times greater a chance of contracting breast cancer than those who decide to keep their baby.
Dr. Janet Daling, who considers herself pro-abortion, brought the abortion-breast
cancer link into the mainstream when her 1994 research found that among women who had been pregnant at least once experienced
a 50 percent increase in breast cancer risk when having an included abortion.
Other subgroups found that women who had a family history of breast cancer experienced
an 80 percent increased risk when having an abortion and teenagers saw their risk doubled if having an abortion before the
age of 18 -- with all teens with a family history and an abortion getting breast cancer.
The later statistic should be considered a big public health issue because 30,000-50,000
teenagers every year with a family history of breast cancer have an abortion and all of them are likely contracting breast
cancer in later years as a result.
A second part of the abortion-breast cancer link that Brind says is not contested
by most researchers is that carrying a pregnancy to term results in the reduction of the breast cancer risk.
Because most breast cancers start in Type 1 and 2 lobules, units that organize breast
tissue, and because induced abortions resulted in increased numbers of these lobules, abortion contributes to breast cancer.
Conversely, breast cancers do not start in Type 3 ad 4 lobules and full-term pregnancies result increased numbers of Type
3 and 4 lobules, which shows a pregnancies helpfulness.
"Thus, if you have an abortion you're left with more places that breast cancers can
start and if you have a full-term pregnancy you have fewer," Brind told the audience.
Brind also talked about the increase in the hormone estrogen that accompanies a pregnancy.
He said that at the end of pregnancy breasts go through a differentiation that helps
counteract the effects of the estrogen, but when an abortion occurs, breasts do not go through the process and women are left
at greater risk of contracting breast cancer.
As a result of the overwhelming evidence showing the abortion-breast cancer link and
research showing the protective effect a pregnancy has for women, Brind said women with an unplanned pregnancy should be told
that their best decision is to have the baby rather than have an abortion.
"It is always better to have a child than no regency at all and it's certainly more
helpful to have a child than have an abortion," he said.
The Morning-After Pill (MAP)
Plan BŪ is an extremely high dosage of chemical hormones.
It contains the same chemical hormones found in some
types of birth control.
Plus, you may not even need it. You can only get pregnant on certain days of the month – around the time that
you ovulate. Typically, there are only about three to five days a month in which a woman can get pregnant. Unfortunately,
most women looking for the morning-after pill are panicked because they think (or perceive) the clock is ticking, and as a
result they don’t take the time to evaluate their situation. If you weren’t fertile when you had sex because
you were nowhere near ovulation, it is senseless to take the drug. It will only subject you to the possible side effects
of nausea and vomiting and put a bunch of unnecessary hormones in your body.
Women who are considering Plan BŪ do not always know where they are in their cycle or if they are fertile, so they rush
and spend money on a drug that they don’t need and that may harm their bodies.
Women who have a known or suspected pregnancy should not take the pills, according to
the manufacturers of Plan BŪ. Have you taken a pregnancy test? Our consultants are available 24/7 to talk to you

Know the Risks Associated with the Morning-After Pill
Plan BŪ is a relatively new drug, and as a result there has not been much testing on its effect on the body. Some
of the commonly reported side effects are nausea, abdominal pain, tiredness, headache, menstrual changes, dizziness, breast
tenderness, and vomiting.ii After taking Plan BŪ it is not uncommon to have an irregular period.iii
This could mean heavier bleeding, lighter bleeding, or a delayed period.iv It can take time before your body
will go back to normal and stabilize itself.
Women who have diabetes should be monitored while taking Plan B,v and women with pelvic inflammatory disease
should not take Plan B, except under a physician’s careful monitoring.vi Unfortunately, a lot of women don’t
know if they have diabetesvii and/or don’t know if they have pelvic inflammatory disease.
After taking Plan BŪ there is also an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy.viii An ectopic pregnancy is
a pregnancy that is occurring anywhere outside of the uterus. The most common type of ectopic pregnancy is sometimes
referred to as a tubal pregnancy because it is one that is occurring in the woman’s fallopian tube. If this goes
unnoticed, a woman could be at serious risk. Even a small delay in diagnosing an ectopic pregnancy can be fatal.ix
Plan BŪ does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) or other sexually transmitted diseases.x It is generally
recommended that any sexually active woman seek testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
Another major problem concerning Plan BŪ is the effect it could have if you are already pregnant. A woman may have
unprotected sex with her partner and rush to get the morning-after pill; however, when she takes Plan BŪ she may be pregnant
from a previous time she had sex. Women who have a known or suspected pregnancy should not take the pills, according
to the manufacturers of Plan BŪ.xi Have you taken a pregnancy test? Our consultants are available 24/7

Learn How the Morning After Pill Works
Many women don’t know how Plan BŪ works. Plan BŪ works in one of three ways, and the difference depends upon
where the woman is in her cycle. If she has not yet ovulated, taking Plan BŪ can work as a contraceptive and suppress
If she has ovulated, it can prevent the sperm from coming into contact with the egg.
The last way in which Plan BŪ may work is a little more complicated. Conception or fertilization is the term used
when the sperm joins the egg. When this happens, human life has begun. The embryo moves through the fallopian
tube and implants in the uterus about a week later. If Plan BŪ is taken after an egg has been fertilized it may not
allow the embryo to implant in the uterus.xii This would be a very early abortion.
