.- The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer blasted the magazine Glamour yesterday for an article which denies the scientific link between abortion and breast cancer. In an August issue, the Coalition stated, the magazine erroneously claimed that the link between abortion and breast cancer (ABC) had been “disproved.”
"We challenge Glamour to find just one scientist who has disproved the biological explanation for the link," said Karen Malec, president of the women’s group . "No scientist dares to challenge the explanation because it makes good physiological sense."
"Glamour's journalists”, she added, “have moral and professional obligations to retract their erroneous statement and inform readers that five medical groups and a bioethics group recognize the link."
The Coalition cited British researcher Patrick Carroll who, presented “new research to the Joint Statistical Meetings in Minneapolis on August 10 showing abortion to be the 'best predictor of British breast cancer trends'?”
“Why”, Malec asked, “do governmental agencies continue to spend millions of tax dollars on ABC research?"
The group also cited, among other sources, abortion industry expert Lynn Rosenberg, of Boston Medical School, who “was compelled to acknowledge under oath that the woman who chooses abortion has a greater risk for breast cancer than does the woman who has a child.”
