Breaking: New bombshell analysis of 36 Chinese studies shows abortion increases breast cancer risk by 44%

breakingGuest post by Joel Brind, Ph.D.

“China is on the cusp of a breast cancer epidemic,” acknowledged a prestigious group of American epidemiologists in 2008 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

Studiously avoiding the “A-word” the JNCI group blamed the emerging epidemic on “shifting reproductive trends” among “risk factors associated with economic development [that] are largely unavoidable.”

That’s because NCI still officially denies the reality of the abortion-breast cancer link.

But a new systematic review and meta-analysis of abortion and breast cancer in China was just published last week in the prestigious, peer-reviewed international cancer journal, Cancer Causes and Control, dealing the great wall of denial a serious blow.

Breast cancer triples among young women over past 3 decades; researchers “don’t know why”

imageWashington Post, February 27:

Cases of advanced breast cancer among women younger than 40 have tripled in the U.S. over the last three decades, a trend that researchers said has “been increasing at a steady or even accelerating rate.”… according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association….

“This study identifies a trend that hasn’t been described in the past,” said Rebecca Johnson, medical director of the Adolescent and Young Adult oncology program at Seattle Children’s Hospital and the study’s lead author. “We’ll definitely need future studies to figure out why this change is occurring.”

Thousands call Planned Parenthood to schedule imaginary mammograms

Drudge has highlighted this story since Saturday.

I’ll just say the number has to be much larger because I surely am not the only one who did not confirm on the Facebook page I was making a call.

From EWTN, October 20:

Today! “Call Planned Parenthood to Schedule Your Imaginary Mammogram Day”

During Tuesday’s debate, President Barack Obama advanced a falsehood:

Komen betrayed from within, Part II: The coincidences

Yesterday I described all the players who doomed Susan G. Komen for the Cure from within to lose  against Planned Parenthood’s assault when it tried to defund the abortion giant.

Today I will list “coincidences” from Karen Handel’s book, Planned Bullyhood, and also from my interview with her, that give evidence of the Trojan Horse.

Komen betrayed from within, Part I: The players

For 29 years Nancy Brinker and Susan G. Komen for the Cure enjoyed the adoration of the masses. There is no better story than launching an organization to stop breast cancer at the request of one’s dying sister.

Brinker also enjoyed bipartisan political favor as a wealthy Republican who had received appointments from every GOP president since Ronald Reagan and also as a pro-abortion liberal who sat on the board of her local Planned Parenthood, was friends with CEO Cecile Richards, and had received the Medal of Freedom from President Obama.

So it may be no wonder Brinker’s leadership team was totally unprepared for the Left’s assault when they tried to defund Planned Parenthood. They likely had grown to believe their own hype.

Book on Komen’s cave to Planned Parenthood passes Politifact’s “truthometer” test

Georgia’s Politifact decided to analyze Karen Handel’s book, Planned Bullyhood, on two key points.

What every pro-lifer (esp Mitt Romney) should know about Tim Pawlenty

Guest post by Joel Briend, Ph.D.

He may or may not be on Mitt Romney’s short list for VP, but journalists always seem to have his name near the top of their list. At least Tim Pawlenty’spro-life credentials are reliable, right?

Well if you ask me, the view from under the Pawlenty bus ain’t so pretty.

As you may know, I have been researching and trying to bring into public awareness the abortion-breast cancer link (ABC link) for twenty years with some success, no thanks to Gov. Pawlenty.

American Cancer Society CMO claims Planned Parenthood has largest OB practice in U.S.

Pro-life stalwart Abby Johnson recently received a request from the American Cancer Society for a donation via snail mail.

Abby responded with a note explaining she would not give to ACS because 1) it had given money to Planned Parenthood in the past and never recanted; and 2) it refused to acknowledge the link between abortion and breast cancer.

Abby expected nothing to come from her response but was surprised to receive a letter from Dr. Otis W. Brawley (pictured right), ACS’s Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President, Research and Cancer Control Science.

The surprise didn’t end there. In his letter, Dr. Brawley made the wild claim that “Planned Parenthood delivers more children than any other medical practice in the U.S.”

Per MSM it could only be Planned Parenthood supporters withholding donations from Komen

The mainstream media is reporting that donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure have dropped substantially in the wake of its decision and subsequent reversal to defund Planned Parenthood.

According to MSM, this must be due to disgruntled Planned Parenthood supporters, for instance this March 23 CBS News story:

A Duggar Valentine’s Day getaway

UPDATE 7:20p: Good for her. Just spotted a clip from CPAC where Michelle Duggar weighed in on the Komen/Planned Parenthood controversy…     12:51p: People reports  Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are spending this Valentine’s Day alone in New York to celebrate their love – and the season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting:

How Planned Parenthood used social media to crush Komen

Politico’s Keach Hagey has predicted Planned Parenthood’s successful ambush of Susan G. Komen for the Cure last week will “likely to go down as a textbook case of the political power of social media.” She’s right, and pro-lifers need to learn from it. This post does not discuss reasons why Planned Parenthood felt it had […]

Planned Parenthood staffer falsely claims “Yes we do” provide mammograms

The American public was made aware of two previously hidden facts during the liberal assault last week against Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for attempting to sever financial ties with Planned Parenthood: 1) that the two were even connected to begin with 2) that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms There have undoubtedly […]

Komen and Planned Parenthood: What next?

Yes, let the Komen disaster be a lesson to anyone thinking of partnering with Planned Parenthood: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. On that topic, my inside source has checked in, telling me there were advisers who in December thought Komen should not notify Planned Parenthood of its […]

Did Komen outfox the Left?

2/4, 7a: HT to Kel for spotting this on the Daily Kos… The apology was nothing more than an attempt to control the damage done to the Komen brand, but the traditional media nonetheless did the work for the foundation by reporting it as a reversal of the Komen Foundation’s decision. But it’s not. 2/3, […]

Decoding Komen’s supposed cave

12:20p: The more I read Komen’s statement, the more brilliant it becomes. Planned Parenthood loses its PR edge if any of its affiliates are convicted on criminal grounds. 12:13p: Ezra Klein at the Washington Post:

Komen cleansing and more inside chatter

Huffington Post gleefully reported today that three Komen officials have now resigned and one more is threatening to, as the “backlash gains steam” over its decision to sever financial ties with Planned Parenthood. The fools don’t realize what is happening. Every Komen exec who quits over the Planned Parenthood flak is good news for our […]

Planned Parenthood’s scorched earth campaign against Komen

Bearing in mind my previous post, “Inside story on Komen split from Planned Parenthood,” read these excerpts from the February 1 New York Times piece, “Uproar as breast cancer group ends partnership with Planned Parenthood”:

Inside story on Komen split from Planned Parenthood

I was on the road yesterday afternoon when the news broke that Susan G. Komen for the Cure was defunding Planned Parenthood. Since then abortion proponents and news organizations have worked themselves into a frenzy speculating why it happened and who is to blame – from George W. Bush, to new SGK VP of public […]

BREAKING: Komen to defund Planned Parenthood

UPDATE, 5:10p: Quoting The Hill: Planned Parenthood said it has established an emergency fund to offset the loss of the Komen funds. … Hey Cecile, if you and your affiliate CEOs agree to take a 1% paycut, that should about cover the $680K loss in funding. 4:53p: Huge, great news from the Associated Press, within […]

Breaking: Company recalls Komen Bible due to Planned Parenthood ties

UPDATE 12/15, 7:24a: This is a big enough story that CNN is covering it, as is the Associated Press.

Kudos to pro-life groups, news sources, and blogs for […]

Liberal feminism is in small or large part to blame for Giuliana Rancic’s breast cancer

Andrea Mitchell’s breast cancer

NBC/MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell announced on air September 7 that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer… I was sorry to hear of Mitchell’s illness and happy to hear she has a “terrific prognosis,” according to her, because her cancer was detected early. Mitchell had a well-known risk for getting breast cancer.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation: Breastfeeding, the “ultimate in empowerment”

Komen is erroneously sending women to Planned Parenthood for mammograms

Good sleuthing by John Jansen at Pro-Life Action League. Still, I can’t believe what he found. Inexcusably, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer foundation is telling people they can get mammograms at Planned Parenthood, which most certainly is not true. The layers of incredulity here are many.

A new way abortion increases the risk of breast cancer

The links between abortion and breast cancer aren’t rocket science… unless you’re a liberal feminist, I guess: Estrogen-dependent link 1: Abortion stops breast cells from maturing so they are not cancer vulnerable, which only happens after a mother is 32 weeks pregnant. Estrogen-dependent link 2: Abortion causes a woman to have more menstrual cycles than she […]

Daily Mail headline making them flip: “Abortion ‘triples breast cancer risk': Fourth study finds terminations linked to disease”

KFC’s buckets full of breast cancer

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 […]

Pro-aborts rip latest study – by their own people – on abortion/breast cancer link

As expected, pro-aborts did not take well to my “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 […]

New York Times-owned About.com posts on the Abortion/Breast Cancer link

UPDATE, 1/9, 7:30p: I just learned from David Schmidt of LiveAction.org (which is why his group is known for super sleuthing and I’m not… :) that About.com is owned by the New York Times. Sure enough, from About.com’s home page… Checking back this morning, About.com blogger Pam Stephan has added to her original post, making […]

Feminists dare to complain about breast cancer reporting bias?

Pro-abortion feminist journalist Miranda Spencer wrote a 2,600 word article for 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 […]

Race for the cure and ignore a cause


Coulter: Abortion and breast cancer link and oil

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. Democrats couldn’t care less about high gas prices. The consistent policy of the Democratic […]

Abortion and breast cancer and the Susan Komen Foundation

Here’s a great abortion and breast cancer 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 […]

The Actuary, a professional magazine for actuaries in the UK, has published an article in its November 2007 issue entitled, Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.

LA Times Staffer Wrong In Negating Abortion-Breast Cancer Link – Again

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”). The truth: 29 out of 41 worldwide studies reveal an […]
