President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid Show Anti-Woman Bias with Abortion Mandate / Ignore National Cancer Institute Branch Chief's Admission of Abortion-Breast Cancer Link
A spokesperson for the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer said today that President Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid are damaging the health of women and their future children with a healthcare bill that promises to increase the rates of abortion, breast cancer and premature birth. The Coalition's president, Karen Malec, said:
"The Triumvirate - Obama, Reid and Pelosi - and all members of Congress were put on notice of an explicit admission from National Cancer Institute branch chief Louise Brinton that 'induced abortion and oral contraceptive use were associated with increased breast cancer risk' in a study led by Jessica Dolle last year.' 1 Despite more than a half-century of research supporting an abortion-breast cancer link and statements in medical texts that childbearing sharply reduces breast cancer risk, the Triumvirate rammed a healthcare bill through Congress that requires federal funding of abortions.
"Evidently, they do not care if women suffer and die of breast cancer. Patrick Carroll, a statistician and actuary with the Pensions and Population Research Institute in London reported in his study of eight European countries that abortion is the 'best predictor' of future breast cancer rates. 2
"If we had, instead, dozens of studies dating from 1957 that linked abortion with a significantly reduced breast cancer risk, abortion enthusiasts in Congress and the mainstream media would have long ago ripped into the National Cancer Institute for suppressing the evidence. And the public would have heard loud lamentations about the harm done to women's health.
"This bill will produce an increase in the number of abortions and result in what former Representative Dave Weldon, M.D. called a 'healthcare time-bomb.' Will the new anti-woman healthcare bill be prepared to meet the additional healthcare needs and expenses resulting from an explosion of breast cancer cases among women and premature births among their children?
"Rep. Bart Stupak and his allies claim to have held out for the removal of the abortion mandate from the healthcare bill. However, Obama's Executive Order purporting to 'reaffirm (the health insurance reform law's) consistency with longstanding restrictions on the use of federal funds for abortion,' is what legal analysts call a 'meaningless sham' because statutory law supercedes executive orders."
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.
