Pink ribbons are one of my pet peeves. I have lost a dear friend, Mary, to breast cancer, and have seen several friends rescued from it's clutches. Why don't I jump on the breast cancer fundraising bandwagon? Joel Brind describes my position accurately here.
Actually, abortion is the single most avoidable cause of breast cancer. . . this is consistently denied by the breast cancer fundraising establishment
No, that doesn't mean that most women who have an abortion will get breast cancer, or that most women who get breast cancer have had an abortion. It just means that the effect of abortion is so strong that choosing abortion even once causes a measurable increase in breast cancer risk. Contrast this to, say, taking hormone replacement therapy or the pill, where it takes years of daily use—thousands of pills—to make a measurable difference in risk. In a normal pregnancy, a woman is exposed to far more estrogen—which stimulates the multiplication of breast cells—than any pills or normal cycles provide. If the pregnancy is not allowed to go to term (or at least 32 weeks gestation), a woman is left with more places for cancer to start. But a full-term pregnancy matures the breast tissue into cells which can make milk, but can no longer multiply. So a full-term pregnancy leaves a woman's breasts with fewer places for cancer to start, and permanent protection against breast cancer.
If those organizations want my support, then they'd better get off the women's lib bandwagon, and be true scientists in pursuit of the truth; our sinful lifestyles do increase our risk of breast cancer, whether we'd like to admit it or not. I met Dr. Chris Kahlenborn whose book details the abortion breast cancer link in painstaking clinical detail for those medically inclined, I highly recommend it. It's one of the biggest scandals of modern science how political correctness leads to a suppression of the truth in breast cancer research. Women die every day as a result of their ignorance, willfully propagated by the breast cancer establishment.
