Abortion is a dirty word in the South. I just came across an article that states that certain states like Texas, Mississippi, and Kansas give out brochures indicating that women who have abortions increase their risk of getting cancer. What's great about this is that the group that puts this brochure out are part of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer group, which is pro-life.
And this is where they get their information:
Joel Brind, a biochemist at Baruch College in New York who advises the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, noted that a woman's chances of getting breast cancer go down if she gives birth at a relatively young age. He reasons that those who opt for abortion are giving up a chance of reducing their breast cancer risk.
Therefore, he says, abortion increases the risk of cancer.
I can't believe he says this with a straight face. Check out the article!
