Women's Health

"In 1986, government scientists wrote a letter to the British journal Lancet and acknowledged that abortion is a cause of breast cancer.  They wrote, "Induced abortion before first term pregnancy increases the risk of breast cancer."  (Lancet, 2/22/86, p. 436)

"As of 2006, eight medical organizations recognize that abortion raises a woman's risk for breast cancer, independently of the risk of delaying the birth of a first child (a secondary effect that all experts already acknowledge).  An additional medical organization, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued a statement in 2003 calling on doctors to inform patients about a "highly plausible" relationship between abortion and breast cancer."  *Quotes from www.abortionbreastcancer.com website

Additionally, hormonal contraceptives (pills, shots, patches etc.)  and intrauterine devices (IUD) are abortifacients.  An abortifacient is a substance or device used to induce an abortion.  While using contraceptives and IUD's, fertilization can still take place, but implantation of the new life is prevented, thus resulting in an abortion.
There is no such thing as "safe sex".   No artificial contraception method will protect you completely from getting an STD.  Many STD's cause life long illnesses and infertility.  HPV, an STD which causes uterine cancer, has a high death rate.  Although there is an HPV vaccination shot being promoted it is not a guarantee.  It will only possibly work on a few HPV strains, and there are many more of them it doesn't work against.  This information is admitted by the manufacturer and verifiable.
