Eliminate Abortion to Reduce Breast Cancer
Don’t want breast cancer? Eliminate a huge risk and don’t have abortions! A new study from China
indicates that abortion increases precast cancer risk by at least 1.55 times the normal rate. This is just one epidemiological study out of 53 that shows a positive statistical link
between breast cancer and abortion! The Coalition on Abortion-Breast cancer has found 69 studies about the link
, with 53 of them showing increased risk. This most recent Chinese study may even actually understate the significant risk due to the fact that most Chinese abortions happen after one child. One live birth/full term pregnancy matures up to 85% of breast tissue past susceptibility to cancer. Women who abort once (or even worse multiple times) before a live/full term pregnancy may have an even more significant breast cancer risk increase with each abortion.
This just solidifies the reasons for abortion to not only be rare, but actually impossible. If breast cancer organizations really wanted to prevent breast cancer, they would be vehemently opposed to abortions. Sadly this isn’t the case. If women’s health was truly the goal of all these organizations, they would never partner with or support an organization that performs or recommends abortions. Sadly, women’s health seems to be a distant last place finish behind convenience and instant gratification.
Please pray for abortion workers, people who have had or helped another get an abortion, for the victims of abortion, for those trying to save women and their children. All things are possible with God, so let us ask for His help in our fight for Life!
Erika V. is a thirty-something mother of two (with four saints in heaven). With a degree in molecular biology, she works for her state’s police crime lab; although her dream is to stay home with her children and homeschool them. Her newly converted husband is a sometime auto mechanic and primarily a stay-at-home dad. Passionate about pro-life issues and science, she is a survivor of breast cancer while pregnant. At 20 weeks pregnant with her daughter (pregnancy number six), she was diagnosed with BRCA1 stage II breast cancer. When local doctors we stumped with the diagnosis, she traveled to MDAnderson where chemotherapy on pregnant women has been done for over twenty years. After delivering her baby girl and undergoing more chemotherapy, Erika has had a whirlwind of surgeries to combat the cancer as well as the complications of cancer treatments. Three years and eight surgeries later, she continues to be passionate about pro-life endeavors, even winning the local Right to Life group’s Life Award and serving on their working board of directors. She authors two blogs, one a mommy blog Biology Brain-Simon Says and one a breast cancer while pregnant blog Erika’s Miracle Journey. Blog posts are often filled with pro-life references, including medical journal articles supporting the pro-life position. While there isn’t often time, she also enjoys horses, reading, gardening, and KY bourbon.
