Strange Bedfellows: Breast Cancer Crusaders and Abortion Providers

"You can't affirm life with one hand and support an organization that kills people with the other," Sanchez told Cybercast News Service back in February 2005. "As far as I'm concerned, anything they [Planned Parenthood] do in the way of drawing women in for any kind of service would simply be to acclimate them to their organization until they're ready to have an abortion."

This really is an odd partnership. One group is bound and determined to save women's lives, and one group is bound and determined to end unborn human life. Why would they ever partner together? Well, as my column a few weeks back touched on: Abortion really isn't about "choice." All too often, it's about the money. Sometimes there may be a hidden, radical feminist agenda at work that smacks of rank hypocrisy. (see

But what is even more disturbing is the proven connection between abortion and breast cancer. Back in 1994, researcher Janet Daling at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle found that "teenagers with a family history of the disease who procure abortions before age 18 have an incalculably high breast cancer risk," according to a recent report on LifeSiteNews.com.

A separate study commissioned by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) confirmed that teens who have abortions before age 18 more than double their risk of breast cancer, with abortions that come before the birth of a woman's first child being the most carcinogenic. That's because girls and young women still have immature breast lobules, called Types 1 and 2, which are more vulnerable to cancer. These lobules don't mature into cancer-resistant Type 3 lobules until after a full-term pregnancy.

Sadly, the statistical proof is plain to see. Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, the incidence of breast cancer in American women has increased across the board by 40 percent, from 1 in 12 to 1 in 7.5.

Now, I know that some critics on the Left will say: Oh, this is just the Right making up numbers. OK, let's assume that a 40 percent greater risk is a bit high. What about 25 percent - is that more acceptable? What about 10 percent? Or just 1 percent, maybe? Breast cancer is a nasty, deadly disease. Why would any woman want to have an abortion and raise her chances of getting breast cancer?
