  • Forest Nymph reports the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer issued a press release on June 24, calling for a debate regarding the breast cancer risk…

    Susan G. Komen for the Cure is no friend of women,” said Karen Malec, president of the CABC. “Komen perpetuates the breast cancer epidemic by withholding the truth that abortion increases breast cancer risk….
    … [W]e challenge Komen to debate the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link with us at the next Catholic Health Association meeting or another venue. Since science is on our side, we expect Komen will duck the debate, as others have….

    Komen justifies its denial of an ABC link by using studies that were severely criticized in the medical journals, Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons and Ethics and Medics, for violating fundamental rules of epidemiology. No experts have ever challenged the conclusions reached in these journals. Komen must follow customary scientific procedure by sending letters to the journals proving that their conclusions are incorrect….
    Komen should stop giving funds to Planned Parenthood, an organization that has inflicted considerable harm on women’s health through its sales of abortions and hormonal contraceptives with estrogen and progestin (acknowledged by the World Health Organization as cancer-causing).”

    The CABC is best known for its groundbreaking research about the increased risk for breast cancer occurrence associated with induced abortion.

  • Culture Campaign reports that the NIH is funding a $423k study of why men don’t like to wear condoms during sex.
    condoms.jpgRun through Indiana University’s Kinsey Institute, the study will examine why “young, heterosexual adult men” take issue with condom use. According to Drs. Erick Janssen and Stephanie Sanders of the Institute:

    The project aims to understand the relationship between condom application and loss of erections and decreased sensation, including the role of condom skills and performance anxiety, and to find new ways to improve condom use among those who experience such problems.

    Disturbingly, the study purports to go beyond mere research, into active “skill-based intervention” to encourage young men to use condoms.

  • MIn The Gap writes on a new initiative called College-Bound Sisters, operated through the University of NC at Greensboro, which pays participants $1 a day not to get pregnant.
    Geared towards 12- to 18-year-old girls, $7 is deposited each week into an interest-earning college fund, which girls receive upon completion of high school. According to founder Hazel Brown, “Our three goals are that they avoid pregnancy, graduate from high school and enroll in college.”
