Eyes to See/Ears to Hear

In order to combat my annoyance over the unwillingness of media outlets to tell the truth and avoid letting their bias rule, as well as to have an outlet for my very (at times) wordy self, this blog has been created by yours truly. This will be an accounting of events in the world, my country, and my little piece of the world as best as I can see it, hear it, and relay it.

Abortion Breast Cancer Link

How often do we pick up the newspaper or tune into a news station and hear about a supposed link between a behavior and a disease or risk of something life threatening happening to one who indulges in the things reported? I would say pretty regularly. From cell phone use causing brain cancer to the consumption of peanut butter causing some kind of cancer if you make little kids eat it for lunch when they are growing up; there are countless reported links to diseases being suggested and reported.

Some of these reported links are credible and by credible I mean there are studies that have been made that are quite legitimate and we, the consumer, should take heed to give our attention to the reports, especially if they are backed up by research. "As of October 2000, twenty-eight out of the thirty-seven studies in the world-wide literature indicate an increased risk of breast cancer associated with induced abortion". The Planned Parenthood Federation is also on record with this statement made in 1994: " "Interruption during the first trimester of a first pregnancy causes a cessation of cell differentiation, which may result in a subsequent increase in the risk of cancerous growth in these tissues." Indeed, consider this statement made by the lead author of the only study on the breast cancer abortion link commissioned by the National Cancer Institute: "Dr. Janet Daling, lead author of the only published study specifically commissioned by to investigate the link between abortion and breast cancer reports highest risks (more than double) were observed when the abortion was done at ages younger than 18 years, or 30 years of age or older.
Daling, who is believed to be a strong supporter of abortion says, "I have three sisters with breast cancer and I resent people messing with the scientific data to further their own agenda, be they pro-choice or pro-life. I would have loved to have found no association between breast cancer and abortion, but our research is rock solid and our data is accurate."

When it comes to women's health you would think that women's advocates and breast cancer research centers as well as physicians groups would broadcast an alert and alarm with regard to this information. Instead it is stone cold silent. It should give women pause, I think, to wonder why there would be this wall of silence from those who profess to be concerned with the threat that breast cancer is to women!

Let's cut to the heart of the matter. Having abortion remain legal is of paramount importance to quite a few groups of great influence in the matter of a link between abortion and breast cancer; so important that this information is surpressed and hidden. The leaders of this great evil of information shut down (and denied) are those who are supposed to care to women (and children)!! They also have the Big Media on their side, because if our BM was the objective news reporters that they are supposed to be, they would be reporting the news of this link and the many studies done to prove it out and let people decide for themselves.

But there we have it, right? Because we are not talking about a tiny little possible maybe link and we need more studies to prove it out, but we are talking knowledge about this link dating back as far as (at least) 1986! It seems a tragedy that so many people are willing to turn a blind eye to the truth so that they can continue to champion abortion as some kind of women's right of passage into modern times, denying that there is a price to pay for such a sin against our own unborn children.
