  • Reuters has a story on research which follows whether women who are childhood cancer survivors have higher rates of abortion than siblings who didn’t have childhood cancer:
    Women who survive childhood cancer are no more or less likely to opt for an abortion during pregnancy than unaffected women, new research from Denmark suggests.
    These findings run counter to those in a recent report from the US in which induced abortions were significantly more common among female cancer survivors than among their female siblings without a cancer history, according to the researchers.

    I deny it along with any honest person who knows how inefficient and wasteful human cloning research is.
