Induced abortion has no role in the management of cancer of pregnancy. It improves neither outcome nor treatment. It is rare, but occasionally a woman may have cancer and be pregnant at the same time. There is no evidence of an increased incidence of malignancy in pregnant women, nor evidence that pregnancy per se adversely affects the cancer. Pregnant women with cancer are treated the same way as a non-pregnant woman with the same condition. If surgery is required, it is performed as in a non-pregnant woman. Cheomotherapy may be given to a pregnant woman as indicated by therapeutic protocols.

A cancer specialist has stated (irish times 26/6/92) that “there is no evidence that pregnancy makes cancer worse. There is no evidence that termination of pregnancy makes cancer better. All the necessary treatment can be given under specialised management”

Have you ever been pregnant????

I have & I can assure you that the baby (note baby not foetus) is like a little fungus - a very cute one but - & it takes whatever it needs from the mother's body even if that means that the mother is left with insufficient for herself. So baby needs calcium baby takes, baby needs iron baby takes (mum ends up with poor teeth, bones & anaemic as well).

Therefore if the mother is ill with anything at all her ability to get better is diminished, moer so if she is having a "hard" pregnancy (nausea etc etc etc) so with all due respect to the irish times & anyone else (oh & would that be a catholic run newspaper by any chance??) I would suggest that any woman who is pregnant & also sick be guided by the needs of her family, her self, & the advice of her own dr as to what the best decision to make is.

I imagine being pregnant is hard enough without adding cancer to the load. And I am sorry but I cannot imagine that chemo is safe for a pregnant women anyway. Nor the medication necessary for cancer patients. I find it hard to believe that someone would actually publish that information. Very silly.

Purple-you do not need to make offensive remarks such as "so with all due respect to the irish times & anyone else (oh & would that be a catholic run newspaper by any chance??)"
as someone from an irish catholic family I found that bloody rude-you shouldnt automatically presume things-not all irish people are catholic or religious.
Thank you

Something like 95% of irish people in eire are catholic so my making the suggestion that the newspaper was catholic run is hardly a huge leap of "faith".

Would you have taken offense had I said & with all due respect to the sydney morning herald?? & would that be a catholic based paper by any chance?? No, you wouldn't you're incensed over the fact that the article quoted happened to be irish & you happen to be irish catholic. Your problem not mine & not that of any baby aborted or not.

Purple was not trying to offend anyone, she was just asking a valid question. And the fact is that most catholics ignore the facts to "preserve" their religion. I am totally on purples side on that one, and she was not trying to be rude, just honest.

Actually, I have always thought being pregnant would be like having cancer if you didn't want to be pregnant -- a growth inside you that is threatening to take over your life.

Because I have "studied" the catholic religion. And no, I am not catholic! Goodness no.
You need to stop getting so defensive. It makes you seem really immature. I do respect your opinions as well as the other intelligent people on this site, so please don't start an argument with me. It is not in either of our best interests, trust me.

Purple, not only have I been pregnant I have had an abortion not only have I had an abortion I have researched the subject of abortion on all aspects and since it is medical fact you do not need an abortion to treat cancer and there is no evidence pregnancy effects cancer and the treatment of in either way, I don’t know how you can argue your point (if you indeed have one) using again an entirely different aspect of pregnancy.

May I please request you do not. –try- and make my threads into a place for religious debate and argument, it is neither the place nor helpful to women who are considering abortion – that is what you are trying to do, help women considering abortion? Or are you here simply to confuse people on the facts?

Since you obviously have some sort of problem with religion (even though I myself am not religious I don’t have a problem with them) are you in fact a satanist trying to offer “assistance” here on this board in the hope these women and children obtain an abortion so that you can then offer those abortions as a sacrafice to satan?

Abortion being the greatest of satanic sacrafice as it is the sacrafice of human blood and of course child sacrafice. Having researched abortion on all aspects I know there are a lot of satanists involved in abortion to differing degrees. Satanists on such a board as this is a very, very real possibility….. Please keep religion out of this!!!

Oh. You are one of the ones who regrets the abortion, and you are just generously trying to make sure no one else has the chance to make the same mistake?

Probably a very large percentage of women who have had an abortion wish they hadn't had to do it. Many will regret having done it.

Unfortunately, in our child-centric society, it is not acceptable to regret the decision not to have an abortion.

Poopoopoo,-and you are just generously trying to make sure no one else has the chance to make the same mistake?-

your judging me! I am simply giving facts and truths and letting them decide it seems it is you who wish to keep the truth from people....Maybe to make sure no one has the informed choice in case they decide not to have an abortion.

Samie I don't understand you. You come on here and posts facts, fine. Purple simply gives the other side of the facts, fine. Then you get all defensive and crappy about it. But, then you start accusing purple of bringing religion into this and trying to "assist" women in this. You make no sense whatsoever. Do you even read posts before responding?
Purple, me and jesse and some others only come on here to keep it what it is suppose to be. But since prolife people will not stay off of here it makes it impossible.
This is a place to learn the facts. The facts of having an abortion versus having the baby. Anything else is irrelevant to this forum. But, if we do not come up here and stick up for women's rights then no one would be able to come here at all for information! So, you need to pick which side you are on and stay there. Posting your abortion facts is absolutely fine and dandy, but you need to understand that others can post birth facts also. Stop being childish.
And sparkly, grow up.

I think it is not childish, women come here to get facts on abortion not childbirth, I am giving them the facts on abortion they request, you on the other hand give them facts on child birth something they dont ask for, it seems to me you are trying to convince women to get an abortion.

I have read posts where some of you have told girls they should have had an abortion even though they chose to keep the baby and are perfectly happy in their choice simply because of age, money or education problems.

If you were to go on the child birth forum and post the same way you do here you would be exposed for what you are, here you disguise your self as choice

"the greatest satanic sacrifice"? Wow, if that isn't off topic, I don't know what is...I dunno, never really thought much about satanists. I've known a couple, but don't think they were really much into sacrifices...Just wore a lot of black. I think the mayans used to sacrifice children, virgins, that sort of thing, but they weren't satanists, just worried about rainfall from what I recollect...Hmm...Satanic sacrifices...Is that for the satanist equivalent of lent? Like, giving up sadomasochism for forty days? Or forcing yourself to help little old ladies across the road? Or perhaps you are suggesting that anyone who has an abortion must be possessed by satan? But does satan get the souls of unborn children too? I guess that feeds in to the life-begins-at-conception theory. Maybe christians really need to start baptising (or is that just catholics?) as soon as they know they are pregnant, just in case they miscarry, wouldn't want your foetus to go to hell, and all....
