|in 1996-oct, Dr. Brind and three other us scientists announced the result of a statistical analysis of previous studies. 15 they selected 23 studies which involved over 60,000 women. They combined all of their results using a process known as "meta-analysis." they found "overwhelming" evidence that women who terminate a pregnancy by an abortion have a 1/3 higher chance of contracting breast cancer later in life. this particular statistical method is fraught with hazard, because the results can easily be influenced by the method of selecting which specific studies are included.
three of the four scientists in the 1996-oct study are known to be vocal opponents of abortion. They might have been biased, consciously or unconsciously, in their selection processes. many of the studies selected were case control studies, and thus were unreliable.
|as I have said, this is why the link between abortion and breast cancer is questionable. You have sources they say abortion increases the risk and some say it doesn't. The sources posted here from what I see are valid.|
|so who knows the answer?|
|nonetheless, it's yet another reason to not get an abortion.|

uh... Hello, polio anyone? We found a cure for that, duh.

there may be cures but not a cure for life
wouldn't death be a sufficient cure for life?
well she deserved it. All those abortions she had.
|anyone can get breast cancer, including males, their is always a 50% chance, so how can you say that their is a higher% chance in females who had an abortion do get breast cancer. I do agree, that is a lie!|
