The risk of a woman dying of breast cancer is twice as great as the risk of her dying in a traffic accident. If she has an abortion, her risk of dying of breast cancer increases 30% to 2.55 times that of dying in a traffic accident. If she routinely wears a seatbelt, she reduces that risk of dying in a traffic accident, which increases her likelihod of dying from cancer if she has an abortion to 2.7 times the risk of dying in a traffic accident. Wearing a seatbelt reduces her probability of dying in a traffic accident by 0.00001582, but having an abortion increases her probability of dying of breast cancer by 0.00018635, which means that the increase in her probability of death from an abortion is 12 times greater than the amount by which wearing a seatbelt reduces her probability of death.
For a woman who has an abortion to put on a seatbelt is about like using a sock to stop bleeding from the carotid artery, or putting a bandaid on a gunshot wound.
Why the Silence About Abortion and Breast Cancer
I believe that the majority of people in the world would not support abortion on demand. Especially if they knew that the one million plus 'legal' abortions that have taken place each year in this nation for 28 years, have resulted in close to 40 million deaths of innocents. Many of which were the misnamed 'Partial birth abortions' (these are fully developed babies, whom the 'mother' (sic) decided to murder at the last minute) But not only have innocents been murdered but the women, and girls, have made themselves much more likely to develop breast cancer not to mention suicides, et. al.

The following letter to the editor from our coalition appeared in the Arlington Heights, Illinois based DAILY HERALD on Sunday, November 18, 2001. The letter discusses our group's concerns that the anti-breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, provides funding to Planned Parenthood, our nation's largest abortion provider and a peddler of contraceptives/abortifacients.
Please be sure to share this letter with individuals on your e-mail list. Without a grassroots effort to help spread the word, women will not learn about the abortion-breast cancer link.
Our work is only made possible with your continued financial assistance. Please remember to give a sacrificial donation to the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer when making your end of year contributions to charities. We have applied for our 501 (c) 3 tax status with the IRS. Donations can be mailed to the coalition at P.O. Box 152, Palos Heights, IL 60463.

"Abortion/breast cancer link can't be denied"
This is in response to an Oct. 9 letter by Emele J. Peters, "Link between abortion, breast cancer unproven."
Last month was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Tens of thousands of people participated in the Race for the Cure sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Our women's group is troubled this foundation doesn't recognize 44 years of research and 28 studies linking abortion with breast cancer. All are listed on our Web site, www.AbortionBreastCancer.com.
The foundation's use of recall bias theory to dismiss the research is inexcusable. Recall bias says that patients are more likely to honestly report their past abortions than healthy women (or that, unbelievably, patients make up abortions they've never had). The problem is that although a number of teams of scientists have tested for it, no one ever found plausible evidence of it. A Swedish team which tested for it found itself in the position of having to explain why seven patients said they'd had abortions that computerized records said they'd never had. Faced with having to argue that the women either lied or over-reported their abortions, this team withdrew its ridiculous claim of having found evidence of recall bias.
Although the foundation identifies postponement of a first-term pregnancy and childlessness as risk factors, it provides funding for breast cancer screening to Planned Parenthood, an abortion provider and a distributor of contraceptives. This is akin to an anti-cancer organization providing funds to a tobacco company to screen for lung cancer.
Scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institute of Health warned in 1986 that "induced abortion before first-term pregnancy increases the risk of breast cancer." A medical book published in 1998 and the 1988 Henderson lecture identify abortion as a risk factor. Scientists have long known, but are reluctant to say to the public, "Abortion causes breast cancer." It's time to put women's lives ahead of greed and ideology so that women who've had abortions can take steps to reduce their risks and seek early detection of the disease.
