The research, authored by a dozen professors, doctors, and researchers from a variety of universities and public health entities throughout China, was derived from an analysis of 36 studies carried out in 14 Chinese provinces. The latest findings, published in the November edition of the international journal Cancer Causes & Control, concluded that induced abortion (IU) “is significantly associated with an increased risk of breast cancer among Chinese females, and the risk of breast cancer increases as the number of IA increases,” according to the study's abstract.
Writing on LifeNews.com, Dr. Joel Brind, a professor of biology and endocrinology at City University of New York and a founder of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, noted that the latest study found that “combining all 36 studies on the ABC [abortion-breast cancer] link in China that have been published through 2012, the overall risk of developing breast cancer among women who had at least one induced abortion was significantly increased by 44%.”
Brind noted that the authors of the most recent study confirmed that their results “were consistent with a previously published systematic review” — one done by Brind and colleagues from Penn State Medical Center in 1996, which found “an overall significant 30% increased risk of breast cancer in worldwide studies,” wrote Brind.
Brind added that “since our study came out in 1996, the 'mainstream' abortion advocates entrenched in universities, medical societies, breast cancer charities, journals, and especially, government agencies like the National Cancer Institute [NCI] ... have relentlessly targeted the ABC link with fraudulent studies and other attacks, culminating in a 2003 international phony 'workshop' by the NCI, which officially declared the ABC link non-existent.”
Among the groups attempting to discount the abortion-breast cancer link has been the Susan G. Komen organization, which in 2011 released a statement denying the connection. “Scientific evidence from the most comprehensive and well-designed studies in the U.S. and around the world does not support the conclusion that induced abortion or miscarriage raises the risk of breast cancer,” read the Komen statement, citing the NCI research.
