Abortion Helps Cause 90% Increase in Breast Cancers in 33 Years

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association on February 27 finds researchers noting an increase in advanced cases of breast cancer over the last 33 years. However, the authors essentially ignore how abortion plays a great role in that increase.

The authors, led by Rebecca Johnson, MD, reported that the incidence of advanced breast cancer which, by the time of diagnosis, had already spread to distant locations (i.el bone, brain, lungs, etc.) among women aged 25-39 years, had jumped by nearly 90% during a 33 year period.

Noting there are more aggressive breast cancers and low survival rates among young women, researchers said the increases in the incidence of advanced cancers were statistically significant and climbed from 1.53% in 1976 to 2.90% in 2009. That’s an increase of 2.07% per year, compounded.

Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, told LifeNews today she is disappointed the authors did not factor in the increased risk of breast cancer associated with an induced abortion.

“It’s utterly stunning that Johnson’s team called the increased incidence in advanced cancers among young women ‘small,’” she said. “That’s a nearly doubled increase in the incidence of a disease with a mean five year fatality rate of 69%! By contrast, the mean five-year fatality rate among women with breast cancers that have not spread to distant sites is 13.2%.”

“It’s peculiar, but not surprising, that the authors offered no hypotheses in their paper explaining the increased incidence in advanced cancers among young women,” Malec added.  “Abortion and use of hormonal contraceptive steroids among teenagers are the elephants in the living room that the medical establishment ignores.”

“A 90% increase in the incidence of advanced breast cancer among women ages 25-39 works out to be approximately 400 excess cases per year,” she added.

The rate of advanced breast cancer doubled for African Americans, ages 25-39, climbing from 3.14 in 1976 to 6.25 per 100,000 in 2009, with a statistically significant annual percent change of 3.50, the study indicated. At the same time, black women have abortions at much higher rates than their white counterparts.



“Is this any wonder when the abortion rate for African American women is more than double that of white women?” Malec asked.

By comparison, the rate of advanced breast cancer for non-Hispanic whites in the same age group climbed by 56% during that period from 1.52 in 1976 to 2.37 per 100,000 in 2009, with a statistically significant annual percent change of 2.67, Malec said.

“Many more young women are at risk for developing advanced breast cancer in the future because of an ObamaCare mandate requiring employers to purchase insurance that will provide “free” (cancer-causing) hormonal contraceptive steroids and abortion-inducing drugs,” warned Malec. “It doesn’t matter to government officials how many lives are destroyed because of it.”

Fifty-six of 71 epidemiologic studies, and biological and experimental evidence support the abortion-breast cancer link. https://www.bcpinstitute.org/FactSheets/BCPI-FactSheet-Epidemiol-studies.pdf
