Medical researchers argue reducing abortions reduces breast cancer, premature birth
Medical researchers argue reducing abortions reduces breast cancer, premature birth

.- Two letters published this month in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons assert that the best predictor of the rise or fall of premature birth, as well as the incidence of breast cancer, is the abortion rate.

In the first letter Brent Rooney and William Johnston reported that the rates of premature birth, maternal mortality, and infant mortality dramatically declined in Poland within a few years after restrictive abortion laws reduced Poland’s abortion rate by 98 percent between 1989 and 1993. 

They predicted that the United States premature birth rate and breast cancer rate would also decline if a similar decline in the abortion rate were to occur. 

Rooney and Johnston also reported that there are no published animal studies proving the safety of the abortion method called vacuum aspiration (VA).  According to them, this makes abortion on women unethical by medical standards.  "…as of 2007, VA is an unproven experimental procedure," they wrote.

The second letter, by Karen Mallec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, discussed the research of Patrick Carroll, which showed that abortion is the "best predictor of breast cancer."  She also referenced Dr. Joel Brind’s 2005 review of ten studies dismissive of the abortion-breast cancer link, in which he concluded the stories were seriously flawed and used to mislead the public. 

"Women are the medical establishment's guinea pigs," Malec said. "We have been fed a pack of lies about the safety of abortion and the use of hormonal contraceptives."
