ABSTRACT: Studies from many nations suggest that induced abortion (IA) may be a causal risk factor for the development of breast cancer. Researchers agree that IA contributes to the increased risk of breast cancer by delaying the timing of a full-term pregnancy which is a protective factor. Increasing numbers of studies now show that IA prior to 32 weeks in and of itself is a risk factor for breast cancer due to the physiology of breast development and the manner in which abortion interferes with the maturation of the breast cells. Although largely ignored by the mainstream medical community, this risk information deserves a prominent place in the education of all adolescent women who may, in the future, consider an IA.

Your source is incredibly biased, and provides findings that are not in concurrence with the majority of related studies findings.

Your first link is refuted here: http://rhrealitycheck.org...

While your second makes no reference to abortion, only a possible link between contraception and breast cancer. In none of your links so far is any link "confirmed."

Besides all of this, if there was a link between abortion and breast cancer, why would the same link not exist between all miscarriages and breast cancer?

I don't actually find that she refuted it at all, but rather talked around it.

While your second makes no reference to abortion, only a possible link between contraception and breast cancer. In none of your links so far is any link "confirmed."

If you follow my link you can view the full article online. If you go to the bottom of page 2 of the report and look under the abortion statistics it shows that women who have had an abortion have a 40% greater chance of cancer than people who haven't had one. Now the beginning of page 3 shows a 30% increase in cancer rates if you've been on the pill.

Thus this study clearly shows that there is a statistically relevant increase in breast cancer rates from abortion. What would be really interesting is to find out those who were never on the pill and never had an abortion vs. the other groups as one may be masking the full effect of the other. It may be that the prevalent use of birth control is masking the effects of abortion.

Besides all of this, if there was a link between abortion and breast cancer, why would the same link not exist between all miscarriages and breast cancer?

Estrogen levels. They find in miscarriages there tends to be lower levels of estrogen in the mother. This reduces the amount of change in breast tissue. The tissue in the breast changes adds cells in order to provide milk to the newborn. These cells are undifferentiated until the 3rd trimester. An abortion leaves these cells in a relatively "unstable" undifferentiated state and thus more susceptible to cancer.

Most studies actually do show a link between abortion and cancer, but those have been disregarded.

This study from China showed a significant risk increase from abortion and even noted that women who suffered many spontaneous abortions (natural) suffered an increased rate of cancer:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...

In Bangladesh, a country where most women have children, breast feed their children (breast feeding reduces breast cancer rates), don't use oral contraceptives and don't have abortions.

From their statistics women were 20 times more likely to have breast cancer than those who didn't. Oral contraceptives gave a 47% increase, giving birth before 21 was a 67% decrease, having 2+ children was a 71% decrease, and breast feeding for longer gave a 70% decrease.

According to the National cancer Institute,

Induced abortion and miscarriage have not been shown to increase a woman"s chance of developing breast cancer.

http://www.cancer.gov...

The American Cancer Society Center agrees.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Committee on Gynecologic Practice also reviewed the available evidence in 2003 and again in 2009. In 2009, the Committee said, "Early studies of the relationship between prior induced abortion and breast cancer risk were methodologically flawed. More rigorous recent studies demonstrate no causal relationship between induced abortion and a subsequent increase in breast cancer risk."
At this time, the scientific evidence does not support the notion that abortion of any kind raises the risk of breast cancer or any other type of cancer.
http://www.cancer.org...

So this 'confirmation', is questionable.

There is a link between pregnancy and breast cancer after age 35, with or without an abortion, according to the National Institute of Health.

I HATE arguments like that.

"Hey guys, Abortion causes breast cancer! Just look at this totally legitimate not at all biased site on abortionbreastcancer.com!"

"Hey guys, evolution is false! Heres a link to Darwinwasinfactmentallyretarded.com"

That is why I also included a link to the article. This is essentially an ad hominem attack rather than addressing what is being discussed.
