I've said before the British press is much more honest about abortion than the American press. Here's another example, a story in the June 24 Daily Mail that I could find reported by no US mainstream news outlet...Continue reading "Daily Mail headline making them flip: "Abortion 'triples breast cancer risk': Fourth study finds terminations linked to disease""
Friend Steve and others notified me last week that Kentucky Fried Chicken was launching a "national 'Buckets for the Cure™' campaign, aimed at educating more women and men about breast health, generating support for the cause and attempting to make the single largest donation in the history of Susan G. Komen for the Cure," according to its press statement.
Steve emailed, "I love KFC, but I guess I can't go during this time period."
That's because Komen gives grants to Planned Parenthood, which as we all know, causes breast cancer by aborting mothers and dispensing hormonal contraceptives. Komen officials say there are certain places in the US where only PP performs breast cancer screening....Continue reading "KFC's buckets full of breast cancer"
Recall last week the state of AL placed Birmingham PP on a 1-year probation following Lila's undercover video sting exposing PP workers' willingness to help a pregnant 14-year-old girl cover up statutory rape by her 31-year-old "boyfriend" - and avoid parental consent to boot.
Now Live Action has received a copy of the ADPH Statement of Deficiencies indicating PP was charged with additional violations. The SOD showed, according to Lila's post...Continue reading "Birmingham Planned Parenthood charged with additional violations"
As expected, pro-aborts did not take well to my WorldNetDaily.com column this week, "Top scientist finally admits abortion-breast cancer link."
In "The truth about breast cancer and abortion," RH Reality Check's managing editor Amie Newman relied heavily on one of the researchers publishing the study - to dispute the results of her own study:

According to one of the researchers and authors of the report, Kathi Malone (pictured right), "There are no new findings related to induced abortion in this paper because the results of these women were published previously."...
Dr. Brinton's co-researcher and co-author, Kathi Malone, is clear about what this and all peer-reviewed studies show thus far on the link between abortion and breast cancer: "The weight of scientific evidence to date strongly indicates that abortion doesn't increase the risk of breast cancer."...

Email request from Gregg Cunningham at the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform:
Volunteers are needed to drive Truth Trucks for us in PA, OH, OK, and MS to help stop abortion funding in the ObamaCare bill.
It doesn't matter where volunteers live. We will fly them where we need them and pay all their expenses. All they need is a valid driver's license, an insurable driving record and a little experience driving the kinds of box trucks which are rented by Ryder and U-Haul and Penski, etc.
All trucks have automatic transmissions and are not much more difficult to drive than a large pickup truck.
Respond to Gregg at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Note: Anne Marie is a nursing major. The following is an excerpt from her research paper on the link between abortion and breast cancer.
[JLS note: Anne Marie does a fabulous job explaining the ABC link in this piece!]
In essence, the case for a link between induced abortion and breast cancer, or the ABC link, is based on several simple biological principles. Minimal background in breast physiology will suffice to introduce these principles.
First, the main units of the breast are lobules, which consist of milk-producing glands and ducts, composed of individual breast cells. Four types of lobules exist. From the end of puberty until the 3rd trimester of her first full-term pregnancy, a woman's breast tissue is comprised of Type 1 and 2 lobules. Type 1 lobules, or ductal lobules, are associated with 80% of all breast cancers (Bachiochi, Ch. 8). Both Types 1 and 2 lobules are considered cancer-vulnerable....Continue reading "What you should know about the Abortion-Breast Cancer link"

Pro-abortion feminist journalist Miranda Spencer wrote a 2,600 word article for Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting in February complaining that MSM does not spotlight factors contributing to the "epidemic" of breast cancer enough.
Spencer, who supports giving US taxpayer money to international abortion groups as well as the United Nations Population Fund, which helps the Chinese government coerce women to abort, had a lot of nerve, particularly by naming her piece, "Overlooking evidence."
Of course Spencer refuses to acknowledge the obvious and proven link between abortion and breast cancer and instead blamed this "leading cause of death in women in their late 30s to early 50s" on the fact that The New York Times, et al, do not talk enough about the hazards of flame retardant clothing....Continue reading "Feminists dare to complain about breast cancer reporting bias?"
The Rocky Mountain News covered the story this way, along with festive pink pictures:
A river of pink flooded downtown Denver this morning as more than 60,000 people ran and walked in the 16th annual Komen Race for the Cure to support people affected by breast cancer.
That was the liberal half of the news. The other half of the news was that CO Right to Lifers wanting ignorant women to learn a significant but covered up cause of breast cancer - abortion - parked a Truth Truck along the parade route and also picketed with signs....Continue reading "Race for the cure and ignore a cause"
By Ann Coulter, June 25:
Liberals dismiss studies that show a link between abortion and breast cancer, claiming they are biased because the people promoting the studies are "anti-choice." For the same reason, no one should believe the Democrats' "energy" policies.Continue reading "Coulter: Abortion/breast cancer link and oil"
Democrats couldn't care less about high gas prices. The consistent policy of the Democratic Party, going back at least to Jimmy Carter, has been to jack up gas prices so we can all start pedaling around on tricycles....
Here's a great billboard ad currently on display in Waco, TX, provided by pro-lifer John PIsciotta:
The Susan G. Komen Foundation is the best known organization raising money for the cure. But Komen gives money to Planned Parenthood, the U.S.'s largest abortion provider, and abortion causes breast cancer.
Komen, pro-aborts, and all liberal groups also vehemently deny the abortion-breast cancer connection.
For those 2 reasons, pro-lifers do not donate to Komen....Continue reading "Abortion, breast cancer, and the Susan Komen Foundation"
The Actuary, a professional magazine for actuaries in the UK, has published an article in its November 2007 issue entitled, "The Breast Cancer Epidemic," about its impact on life and health insurance and health care industries in the UK.
The article was based on forecasts of breast cancer rates published last month in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.
In that article, Patrick Carroll, a statistician and actuary, showed that of 7 risk factors, abortion is the "best predictor" of breast cancer trends, and fertility is also a useful predictor.
Carroll used a mathematical model he successfully used previously to forecast breast cancer incidence to project a 50.9% increase in breast cancer in England and Wales by 2029. Other highlights:Continue reading ""The breast cancer epidemic""
Posted by Dave Pierre on April 16, 2007 - 08:30.
An April 12, 2007 article by Stephanie Simon in the Los Angeles Times claimed that "national cancer experts" have found no link between abortion and an increased risk of breast cancer (ABC = "Abortion-Breast Cancer").
29 out of 41 worldwide studies reveal an ABC link. (See ";The Abortion-Breast Cancer Link" by Angela Lanfranchi, MD, FACS)
"There are 17 statistically significant studies that show a link between abortion and breast cancer, 8 of which were conducted in the United States." ("Scientists must show with 95 percent certainty that the results in their studies could not have occurred by chance alone.") (emphasis mine) (From ";The Abortion-Breast Cancer Link" by Angela Lanfranchi, MD, FACS. A list of the 17 studies are in Dr. Lanfranchi's footnotes.)
"As of 2006, eight medical organizations recognize that abortion raises a woman's risk for breast cancer, independently of the risk of delaying the birth of a first child (a secondary effect that all experts already acknowledge). An additional medical organization, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued a statement in 2003 calling on doctors to inform patients about a 'highly plausible' relationship between abortion and breast cancer." (See AbortionBreastCancer.com) (emphasis mine)
It is "estimated that upwards of 10,000 cases of breast cancer each year presently, and up to over 25,000 per year in twenty or thirty years hence, are or will be attributable to induced abortion." (emphasis mine) (";The Abortion–Breast Cancer Connection" by Joel Brind)
Many abortion defenders point to a 2003 "workshop" conducted by the National Cancer Institute that denied the ABC link. However, the NCI meeting has been tagged as a "scam." Rather than seeking the truth, it was perceived that "eradicating the ABC link was really the sole purpose of the meeting." (Source) (See also these important notes from the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute.) Recent studies that assert an ABC link have also been found to be seriously flawed and deficient. (See here and here.)
From Stephanie Simon's article in the Los Angeles Times (emphasis mine):
Minnesota is also among several states that compel doctors to inform women that abortion may be linked to breast cancer, though national cancer experts have found no such connection.
The Times clearly owes its readers a correction.
In addition, this is the second time in recent months that Ms. Simon has stated her claim, even though we addressed the issue in this February 2007 NewsBusters post.
What's it gonna take?
When do we admit that maybe, just maybe, there is a connection between abortion and breast cancer?
More importantly, when are we going to admit that abortion providers have nothing to lose and everything to gain by denying it?
When do we admit that the abortion industry lies. Over and over and over again, because to tell the truth would cost $$$$$.
I want to hug the necks of everyone associated with "Friday Night Lights" for being courageous enough to tell it like it is. I hope they win all four of the Emmys they were nominated for this month. By telling Becky's story, they empower women and girls who have struggled and made their best, most moral decisions despite difficult circumstances.
~Former Planned Parenthood president Gloria Feldt, commenting on a recent episode of Friday Night Lights in which a teenage girl decides to have an abortion, Washington Post, July 23
