October is breast cancer awareness month. It is a human tragedy that each year 650 women die in New Zealand from breast cancer. Every year 2800 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Ninety five per cent of women contracting breast cancer are over the age of forty. It has been known since 1957 (from a Japanese study), that women who had an abortion increased their risk of breast cancer three fold. There are many studies that have been conducted worldwide that provide irrefutable proof of the link between abortion and breast cancer. Abortions are promoted as being “safe “for women; they are not. It is politically incorrect to admit that abortion hurts women. The fact that ideology trumps science means that women are not being warned of the abortion breast cancer link. Women have a right to be informed that abortion increases a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer.
The New Zealand Family Planning Association, in its booklet on abortion funded by the Ministry of Health state:
Why is Family Planning a partner in this conspiracy of silence, when New Zealand women are dying as the result of this crucial information being withheld? The answer is simply that political ideology trumps truth.
