The Link between ABORTION and BREAST CANCER

  • 1981 Los Angeles study finds 2 to 4 times higher incidence of breast cancer among women under age 33 who Aborted Their Baby!
  • 1993 Howard University study showed that Africian American women over age 50 were 4.7 times more likely to get breast cancer If They Had An Abortion!
  • 1994 National Cancer Institute study found a 50% increase risk among women who Had Abortions!

WHY?

When you become pregnant your body produces a surge of the hormone estrogen. This causes the cells in the breast to multiply rapidly. This also produces the breast soreness you are experiencing. In the second half of the pregnancy, other hormones are produced to stop this rapid growth and to direct these cells to perform new functions such as producing milk. These last changes protect the cells against cancer-causing substances. When you have an abortion, all of those millions of cells are left immature and growing fast. Without the second surge of hormones to turn off the growth and direct the cell, they are left open and vulnerable to cancer!

You have a right to know the risks!
