    Appears there is some confusion because as of 5/10/11, these were their findings this information is still on their website.

    Is abortion linked to breast cancer risk?

    A few retrospective (case-control) studies reported in the mid-1990s suggested that induced abortion (the deliberate ending of a pregnancy) was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. However, these studies had important design limitations that could have affected the results. A key limitation was their reliance on self-reporting of medical history information by the study participants, which can introduce bias. Prospective studies, which are more rigorous in design and unaffected by such bias, have consistently shown no association between induced abortion and breast cancer risk (18Ė23). Moreover, in 2009, the Committee on Gynecologic Practice of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists concluded that ďmore rigorous recent studies demonstrate no causal relationship between induced abortion and a subsequent increase in breast cancer riskĒ (24). Major findings from these recent studies include the following:

    Women who have had an induced abortion have the same risk of breast cancer as other women.

    Women who have had a spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) have the same risk of breast cancer as other women.

    Cancers other than breast cancer also appear to be unrelated to a history of induced or spontaneous abortion.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I'll counter Amigo's posting of material from a right-to-life blog with the National Cancer Institute's factsheet on connection between reproductive history and breast cancer. This cites the many studies that have debunked the single study highlighted in the right-to-life blog article........Abortion, Miscarriage, and Breast Cancer Risk - National Cancer Institute
