Study of Chinese Women Shows Abortion-Breast Link

After decades of denial by abortion proponents, a new study published in the prestigious, peer-reviewed international journal Cancer Causes & Control presents a meta-analysis showing that a single abortion increases breast cancer risk by 44%, and that two and three abortions increases risk by 76% and 89% respectively.

UPDATE 12/12/13: Breast Cancer Soars Worldwide, Main Cause Censored

-- From "A meta-analysis of the association between induced abortion [IA] and breast cancer risk among Chinese females" Cancer Causes & Control, November 2013

A total of 36 articles (two cohort studies and 34 case–control studies) covering 14 provinces in China were included in this review. . . .

Conclusion: IA [induced abortion] is significantly associated with an increased risk of breast cancer among Chinese females, and the risk of breast cancer increases as the number of IA increases.

From "New China Study May Prove Link Between Abortion and Breast Cancer" by Michael Gryboski, Christian Post Reporter 12/2/13

The 12 authors for the study were affiliated with entities including the Tianjin Medical University, Project Office, Tianjin Women's and Children's Health Center, and the Department of Social Medicines and Health Service Management, School of Public Health, Tianjin Medical University, all of Tianjin, China.

The recent China meta-analysis is not the only major study whose findings imply a vindication of the ABC link claim. In 1996, Brind, et. al., of the Department of Natural Sciences, Baruch College, City University of New York found a slight increase in risk.

From "Bombshell Study Finds 44% Increased Breast Cancer Risk for Women Having Abortions" by Joel Brind, Ph.D., 12/2/13

. . . These results, said the authors, “were consistent with a previously published systematic review”. That review was the one I published in the British Medical Association’s epidemiology journal with colleagues from Penn State Medical Center in 1996, which study reported an overall significant 30% increased risk of breast cancer in worldwide studies.

[The Chinese authors] state: “The lack of a social stigma associated with induced abortion in China may limit the amount of underreporting.”

[The new] study follows right on the heels of two new studies this year from India and Bangladesh, studies which reported breast cancer risk increases of unprecedented magnitude: over 600% and over 2,000%, respectively, among women who had any induced abortions.

From "New study from China helps to prove the Abortion-Breast Cancer Link" by Mary L. Davenport, MD, American Thinker 12/2/13

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 is 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 US counterparts in governmental, professional and consumer organizations.

The new Chinese meta-analysis not only concerns the ABC [Abortion-Breast Cancer] link on an individual level, but also confirms the observation of statistician Patrick Carroll, who predicted the rise in breast cancer in several European countries following legalization of abortion.  Again, because of the lag time between abortion and the appearance of breast cancer, the link is not immediately apparent. Carroll's work is important because he finds that not only is induced abortion an independent risk factor for breast cancer (separate from such factors as late child-bearing) but that it is the best predictive factor for forecasting a nation's future breast cancer rates.  Nations such as China, with traditionally low breast cancer rates, are now seeing an increase, many years following their legalization of abortion.
