The abortion breast cancer link remains a contention between pro-lifers and so-called pro-choicers.
Seventy or more studies have shown the cause and effect relationship between abortion and breast cancer among women.
The abortion lobby denies such claims, trotting out their own flawed studies with which to counter.
For today’s post, I am setting out to do two things. First, I will review why women who obtain abortions increase their risk of incurring breast cancer later in life. Second, I give you a couple sites to visit. There, you can see studies that show the increased risk of breast cancer due to obtainment of at least one abortion.
FIRST, WHAT HAPPENS IN A HEALTHY PREGNANCY?
In a healthy pregnancy, estrogen and other hormones flood the mother’s body. Among the many changes that occur within her, she develops a permanent change to the structure of her breasts.
Before ever becoming pregnant, a woman cannot produce milk. This is due to the gland cells within her breast being immature and underdeveloped.
However, upon becoming pregnant, the mother’s breast cells grow rapidly into a large branching systems of ducts and gland cells. These matured cells develop the capacity to produce milk.
This process of milk production capacity takes time over the course of a pregnancy to be completed. Once mature, the likelihood the breast cells ever become cancerous drops precipitously.
WHY IS BREAST CANCER MORE COMMON AMONG WOMEN WHO OBTAIN ABORTIONS?
The maturation process of the breast cells is not an instantaneous process. It takes some time over the course of the pregnancy.
During the first trimester especially, these cells are transitioning. This causes them to become less stable.
If a mother chooses to have her baby dismembered inside her womb by an abortion, then this ends her pregnancy. When her pregnancy ends, she shuts off her natural flow of pregnancy hormones that were bringing about the transition in her breasts.
Without these hormones, the breast cells get stuck in this vulnerable state. These cells stuck in transition are more likely to become cancerous.
WHAT ABOUT AN INVOLUNTARY MISCARRIAGE?
A common question arises in this discussion. What about mothers who unexpectedly lose their baby to an involuntary miscarriage. (I say involuntary miscarriage, so as not to confuse this with a euphemism for abortion: voluntary miscarriage.)
In those instances, even though the maturation process within the breasts is interrupted, the damage is minimal.
This is because the pregnant, female body can sense when the baby has died and begins to heal itself quickly. Over the course of a few days following the death of the unborn baby, the mother’s body undergoes more changes. Among these is moving the transitory breast cells into a more stable state.
Whereas, a woman who obtains an abortion never gives her body fair warning of the end to her pregnancy. Thus, her breast cells are more likely to be stuck in that transitory phase.
70 STUDIES SHOW THE INCIDENCE OF BREAST CANCER INCREASES IF THE WOMAN HAS HAD AN ABORTION
The website, abortionbreastcancer.com lists 58 studies from around the world that show a link between abortion and breast cancer.
Steve Mosher’s article on LifeSiteNews.com found 12 more studies with the same result.
I am sure there are even more studies out there. These are just the ones I know of. You are welcome to leave a comment below listing more.
The Culture of Death may try to deny the relationship, but you need not be fooled. The evidence is in. If the progressives really cared about women’s health as much as they claim, they would be warning women abortion increases their risk of getting breast cancer.
But they don’t. They covet abortion more.
