Chinese researchers are reporting a 17 percent increased breast cancer risk among women who have had an abortion. The study is considered particularly valid because abortion is not stigmatized in China, nor is it connected to abortion ideology and politics.
According to a press release by the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer (ABC), a case-control study was conducted by Peng Xing and his colleagues in Northeast China which examined reproductive factors associated with breast cancer. They found a statistically significant overall odds ratio of 1.17, which represents a 17 percent increased breast cancer risk for women who had induced abortions.
This study corroborates a Turkish study conducted earlier this year which reported a 66 percent increased risk of breast cancer in women who had abortions.
“Both studies show that, when honest research is conducted outside the control of the U.S. National Cancer Institute and other Western governmental agencies or organizations tethered to abortion ideology and politics, the truth emerges that abortion raises risk,” says ABC. “Studies reporting no abortion- breast cancer (ABC) link were proven in medical journals to be stupendously flawed (fraudulent).”
American researchers say Chinese studies on the abortion/breast cancer link exclude the possibility of a flaw called “report bias” because abortion isn’t stigmatized in China. Communist officials forcibly abort women after first full term pregnancy, so Chinese women are considered reliable reporters of their abortions.
ABC president Karen Malec says “the Chinese and Turkish studies are relevant considering the debate over government-funded abortion through healthcare reform. Government-funded abortion means more dead American women from breast cancer.”
