Women's Group Asks: Why Aren't Women Being Told About the Most Preventable Cause of Breast Cancer?

Over the next few weeks many cancer walks to benefit breast cancer research and sponsored by Y-Me Breast Cancer and Avon Products, Inc. will be taking place across the nation.  Thousands of women will be participating in these walks, but most have never been informed about the most preventable cause of breast cancer -- induced abortion.  Twenty-seven out of 35 studies published since 1957 have linked abortion with breast cancer. 

Mrs. Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, said "Scientists have been studying this link for 44 years.  We are appalled that women haven't been informed about the existence of these studies.  Why are women being excluded from this discussion about their own health care?"  

"We intend to correct this grave injustice," asserted Mrs. Malec.  "In Chicago volunteers will distribute brochures at the cancer walks to educate the walkers about the abortion-breast cancer research," reported Mrs. Malec.  "In other cities volunteers have erected billboards advertising our web address: < www.AbortionBreastCancer.com >."

"The public was informed when only 5 out of 7 studies linked cellular phones with brain cancer," argued Mrs. Malec, "so why aren't women entitled to know that more than two dozen studies implicate abortion as a risk factor for this deadly disease?  Tragically, the bar has been raised for this risk factor, and 1 in 100 women will die of abortion-induced breast cancer."      

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer is an international women's organization founded to protect the health and save the lives of women by educating and providing information on abortion as a risk factor for breast cancer.
