First Risk


The cancer establishment recognizes these reproductive risk factors for breast cancer: little or no childbearing, delaying a first full term pregnancy, and little or no breastfeeding. Abortion contributes to all of these risk factors. Therefore, abortion contributes to the skyrocketing breast cancer rates in the U.S.

Because childbearing decreases breast cancer risk, scientists agree that the woman who has an abortion has a greater breast cancer risk than the woman who has a baby (assuming that she gives birth after 32 weeks gestation).
