Researchers at the University of Colombo in Sri Lanka have found that women who have had abortions are three times more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer later in life. Actually, this is old news; I remember hearing about this years ago, and it’s the fourth study performed in fourteen months that found such a link.

What’s news is that the scientific facts of the research may be reaching the public finally, despite the efforts of abortion supporters to hush it up. (They’re concerned it could affect women’s choices, but isn’t choice their schtick?)

As the news story reports, “Dr. Louise Brinton, a senior researcher with the U.S. National Cancer Institute who did not accept the link, reversed her position to say she was now convinced abortion increased the risk of breast cancer by about 40 percent.”
