Abortions increase

Abortions increase

Women need to know that abortions increase the risk of breast cancer. Seems Planned Parenthood, during breast cancer awareness month, likes to overlook this fact.

Doesn’t any wonder why breast cancer is more prevalent, increasing from 63,000 in 1962 to 180,000 cases in 2001.

J.C. Willke, MD, states in his referenced pamphlet, “The Deadly After-Effect of Abortion,” “Over 34 studies indicate that women who abort their first pregnancy have a much higher risk of developing cancer.” Get your free copy from Hayes Publishing Co.

New Hampshire recently passed a bill that would require doctors to tell pregnant women of this risk. It’s called the “Women’s Right To Know Act regarding Abortion Info. I only hope it applies to abortion clinics, too.

Another pamphlet by Breast Cancer Prevention Institute states a pregnant woman is much more likely to be cured if she has the baby, instead of an abortion.

Personally, I don’t want my tax dollars going to support abortions that maim women, physically and emotionally. So how about telling vulnerable women the truth that abortions increase breast cancer so they can make informed decisions.
