They’re the carcinogens you won’t read much about in the establishment media:
birth-control pills and abortion.
The evidence linking hormones and
breast cancer just keeps pouring in. What kind of hormones? Those found in
birth-control pills and those associated with abortions.
prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported Feb. 27
the rate of metastatic breast cancer in women ages 25 to 39 nearly doubled
between 1976 and 2009, from 1.53 to 2.9 per 100,000.
Council on Science and Health calls the increase “slight.” But Dr. Jane Orient,
executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons,
points out there has been no corresponding increase in older
Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast
Cancer, said it was “utterly stunning” that JAMA lead author Rebecca Johnson’s
team called the increased incidence in advanced cancers among young women
“That’s a nearly doubled increase in the incidence of a
disease with a mean five-year fatality rate of 69 percent,” she said. “By
contrast, the mean five-year fatality rate among women with breast cancers that
have not spread to distant sites is 13.2 percent.”

“Young women in huge numbers have taken higher doses of
hormones than their menopausal sisters – in birth-control pills,” she

Organization classified oral contraceptives as Class-1 carcinogens, one of only
about 100 substances found to be “carcinogenic in humans.”
said breast cancer is generally hormone sensitive and is often treated with
anti-estrogens. And pregnancy is the most important cause of a high estrogen
She noted estrogen increases by 2,000 percent by the end of
the first trimester, increasing cancer vulnerability. However, by the end of
pregnancy, 85 percent of breast-cancer tissue has become cancer-resistant
because of hormones made by the fetal-placenta presence.
a completed pregnancy protects against breast cancer. The protection is lost
when a pregnancy is aborted, making a woman even more vulnerable to breast
Orient said at least 29 studies have shown a significant
increase in breast cancer in women who have had an abortion. She said many
studies indicate abortion may increase the risk of breast cancer by an average
of 30 percent.
Orient says women “at the very least lose the
protective effect of the first full-term pregnancy if they abort their first
She thinks women should be informed about the growing
evidence linking abortion and breast cancer. Even if they do have an abortion,
she said, they could at least be extra-vigilant and get early
Why aren’t more women informed of the studies linking
birth control, abortions and breast cancer?
“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,” said Malec.
“Abortion and use of hormonal contraceptive steroids among teenagers are the
elephants in the living room that the medical establishment

Issues Institute told WND that for years, major research institutes have denied
any link between abortion and breast cancer because the issue has been

said Mattes. “It took many years for the link between smoking and lung cancer to

“They deny there’s a link between abortion and breast
cancer,” Mattes told WND at the time. “Even if the media came down and hit them
in the head, I don’t believe that they’d change their mind because they believe
abortion is a positive.”
According to Mattes, the Komen Institute
was fully aware of the new developments in the study of breast cancer causes but
would continue to support Planned Parenthood in any case, because the
organization is “steeped” in pro-abortion philosophy.

issue of them being uninformed.”
Mattes noted that Nancy Brinker,
the founder of Komen, has been involved with Planned Parenthood for many
A Komen spokesman confirmed to WND that Brinker did “at one
time many years ago, serve briefly on the board of directors for the North Texas
chapter of Planned Parenthood.”
That 2010 WND article also pointed
out evidence was mounting that abortion contributes to breast cancer. A study in
Sri Lanka found abortion “triples” the risk of breast cancer.
London Daily Mail reported that three other studies, in China, Turkey and the
U.S., came to “similar conclusions.”
According to the British
paper, Louise Brinton, a senior researcher with the U.S. National Cancer
Institute who did not accept the link, reversed her position earlier that year
to say she was now convinced abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by
about 40 percent.
Another organization fighting abortion and breast
cancer, the Coalition on Abortion–Breast Cancer, quoted a study conducted by a
second National Cancer Institute-commissioned scientist, Janet Daling, whom it
described as “an abortion supporter:”
“[A]mong women who had been
pregnant at least once, the risk of breast cancer in those who had experienced
an induced abortion was 50 percent higher than among other

be classified as carcinogens, because the number of breast cancer cases could be
