Breast Cancer Soars, Obvious Abortion Cause Hushed

The mainstream media is reporting new findings published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showing a significant increase of breast cancer among women aged 25 to 39 -- incidents of metastatic breast cancer more than tripling since the 1970s.  What has changed in the past 40 years in women's "health?"  Abortion!
"The increase [of metastatic breast cancer] translates to about 250 cases per year in 1976, and 850 in 2009."
-- Dr. Rebecca Johnson, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, University of Washington.

-- From "Breast cancer among young women increasing" by Monte Morin, Los Angeles Times 2/26/13

In 1976, 1.53 out of every 100,000 American women 25 to 39 years old was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, the study found. By 2009, the rate had almost doubled to 2.9 per 100,000 women in that age group — a difference too large to be a chance result.

The trend, which has yet to be explained, has raised real concerns about future efforts to treat the disease. Survival rates for young women with metastatic breast cancer are much lower than they are for older women, because the cancer tends to behave more aggressively in the young.

They hypothesized that the trend was due to a variety of lifestyle changes that have occurred during the study period. Diet, exercise, obesity, earlier onset of menstruation, use of birth control, delayed pregnancy and other factors all might play a role.

From "Advanced breast cancer rising among women under 40, study finds" by Nicole Ostrow, Bloomberg 2/27/13

Cases of advanced breast cancer among women younger than 40 have tripled in the U.S. over the last three decades, a trend that researchers said has “been increasing at a steady or even accelerating rate.”

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in 15- to 39-year- old females in the U.S. and accounts for 14 percent of all cancer in women and men in this age group, the authors wrote. Those diagnosed with the disease at a younger age have a higher risk of dying than those who are older. The national five-year survival rate for 20- to 34-year-olds diagnosed with advanced breast cancer is 31 percent, compared with 87 percent for women with less aggressive forms of the disease, researchers said.

“It’s a real phenomenon and an important one,” said Len Lichtenfeld, deputy chief medical officer for the Atlanta-based American Cancer Society. “Why it’s happening, we don’t know. We have identified that this is happening and it’s consistent over time and it’s a source of concern that we have to keep evaluating.”

From "Advanced Breast Cancer Rising in Young Women?" by Kathleen Doheny, HealthDay Reporter 2/26/13

Younger women often believe breast cancer can't happen to them, said Johnson, who had breast cancer in her 20s. When a younger woman does seek medical help for worrisome breast symptoms, she should expect the doctor to take the symptoms seriously and not suggest a prolonged period of watching and waiting. Typically, a doctor should schedule an ultrasound or mammogram screening, Johnson said.

The findings are not a reason to change current mammography screening guidelines, Johnson added. Many organizations recommend routine screenings beginning at age 40, although the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force now recommends routine mammogram screenings need not begin until age 50.

The finding does stress the importance of younger women being aware of breast changes and the importance of seeking medical attention when they find such changes, she said.

From "Do Abortions Cause Breast Cancer?" by Elaine Schattner, Slate 5/23/12

In Kansas, legislators recently passed the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. If enacted into law, the bill would require doctors to tell pregnant women of a relationship between abortion and breast cancer. This news follows passage by the New Hampshire State House of the Women’s Right To Know Act Regarding Abortion Information. These related laws are unlikely to gain approval by the state senates. But there’s a trend: A similar measure took effect in Texas in February. Now, providers there must inform pregnant women about “the possibility of increased risk of breast cancer following an induced abortion,” the so-called ABC link.

In the decade following Roe v. Wade, the occurrence of breast tumors in the United States soared. The coincidental rise in case numbers with legalized abortions led some to speculate that terminating a pregnancy might boost a woman’s odds. The link is plausible because female hormones and fertility influence mammary growth and tumors.  . . .

Few doubt that a woman’s reproductive history influences her chances of getting breast cancer. As early as 1703, Italian physician Bernardino Ramazzini reported that nuns suffered breast tumors with relative frequency. A century ago, the British Ministry of Health commissioned Dr. Janet Clay-Laypon to examine possible roots of the malignancy. In then-innovative case-control studies, Clay-Laypon surveyed 508 breast cancer patients at English and Scottish hospitals. For controls, she questioned women with other medical conditions. Her 1926 monograph, A Further Report on Cancer of the Breast, confirmed what doctors had long suspected: Women who deliver few children and marry late are more likely to develop the disease.

From "Planned Parenthood Ignores 71 Studies Linking Abortion, Breast Cancer" by Karen Malec, President, Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer 1/22/13

Increased childbearing, starting before age 25, has long been known to provide significant protection against breast cancer. But, Planned Parenthood is waging a cancer war on women through its sales of induced abortions, contraceptives, abortifacients, injections, vaginal rings, skin patches, implants, IUDs and sterilizations.

Although the abortion chain acknowledges the risk reducing effects associated with having an early first full term pregnancy and breastfeeding, it contradicts itself by denying that abortion puts women at an increased risk for the disease. Planned Parenthood omits from its “fact sheet” most of the 71 epidemiologic studies reporting an independent link, meaning that abortion also raises breast cancer risk by leaving the breasts with more places for cancers to start.

Like Big Tobacco, the abortion industry will not inform women that induced abortion raises breast cancer risk. That’s why we applaud legislators in seven states that have passed informed consent legislation requiring abortionists to either provide pregnant women this information before an abortion themselves or in state health department literature.
