October is Breast Cancer Awareness month but America’s medical establishment is turning a blind eye to the abortion-breast cancer connection.

In countries where abortion is not politicized, researchers have uncovered the danger of breast cancer if a woman has an abortion before she has completed one pregnancy.
Centralized medical systems allow researchers to use national data reporting breast cancers and abortions.

A 2007 study published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons found abortion is the best predictor of whether women will contract breast cancer.

Patrick Carroll of the Pension and Population Research Institute in London conducted this study and showed that countries with higher abortion rates, such as England and Wales, could expect a substantial increase in breast cancer incidence.

Harvard University researchers in 2007 affirmed previous studies showing that a full-term pregnancy before age 35 reduces the long-term risk of developing breast cancer. The risk is likely much higher in women who have a first abortion at a young age.

The newest study with Istanbul University and Magee-Women's hospital in Pittsburgh, done on women in Turkey who had abortions, found a 66% increased risk of contracting breast cancer as a result. The evidence is there; does the establishment have the courage to act on it?
