It is Harder to Kill A Lie

It is much more difficult to kill an agenda-driven lie than it is to bring the truth into the light. Case in point, from Crisis magazine:

It is now common medical knowledge that a full-term pregnancy, especially before the age of 32, acts as a protective mechanism against breast cancer. Thus, research shows that teenagers with a family history of breast cancer who have abortions before their 18th birthday have an incalculably high risk of developing breast cancer...yet such [young]women are rarely informed of this indisputable link.
And here’s another link to cancer through abortion, a link which is “contested” (I guess so!), but supported by numerous epidemiological studies:

abortion itself can cause breast cancer. Through abortion, a woman artificially terminates her pregnancy at a time when her breast cells have been exposed to high levels of potentially cancer-initiating estrogen but before those cells have matured into cancer-resistant cells (as they ultimately do in a full-term pregnancy). According to breast surgeon Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, “The same biology that accounts for 90 percent of all risk factors for breast cancer accounts for the abortion–breast cancer link.”
So much for the safety of abortion. Now try on the mental health consequences:
A study published in a recent edition of the Journal of Anxiety Disorders found that women who aborted their unintended pregnancies were 30 percent more likely to subsequently report all the symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder than those women who had carried their unintended pregnancies to term.
Somehow I’ll bet they don’t give out this information to young women when they show up at abortion mills -- oops, I mean clinics. Yeah, that's the word: clinics -- for “counseling.”

Dymphna,

Thank you very much for the hat tip and link. I have blogrolled both of your sites, and am just sorry that it took me so long. You do excellent work.

This information doesn't get spread around very much, does it?

Well it's finally getting out there. If you go over to Crisis mag, you can get the name of the book.

I plan to order it.

At some point I'll do a post on the evolution of my thinking about this area.
