Birth Control May Increase the Risk of Breast Cancer

Oral contraceptives increase the risk of breast cancer by an average of 44 percent in pre-menopausal women who took - or were taking - oral contraceptives (OCs) prior to their first pregnancy (as compared to women who had not used OCs), according to a comprehensive analysis of international studies conducted between 1980-2002, linking breast cancer and contraceptives. ["Oral Contraceptive Use as a Risk Factor for Pre-menopausal Breast Cancer: A Meta-analysis", published in the journal of the Mayo Clinic, October 2006]

Of the 23 studies examined, 21 showed an increased risk of breast cancer with OC use prior to a first pregnancy in pre-menopausal women.

The study seems to reinforce the 2005 classification of oral contraception as a Type 1 carcinogen (cancer-causing agent) to humans by the International Agency for Cancer Research.

PP: Helping or Targeting? Stopping Injustice PDF Print E-mail

Recently a young woman at San Jose State University received a copy of You Can Stop Injustice-HLA's exciting new campus supplement.

Her response was typical of students who read our materials:

Before I read your papers, I didn't have much against abortion before 3 weeks of pregnancy, but now that I know the procedure, it opened my eyes to the pure evil behind it all... No life is worth less than another, we are all equal and are all sent to earth for a reason. God loves us all... I am 110% against abortion!     A life is a life...

With responses like this, no wonder we have requests to develop new materials to reach other populations.

HLA's second edition of Did You Know? is designed to fill this need for an educational resource that reaches the African American community with the pro-life message.

New articles such as "A Planned Parenthood Insider Speaks Out," "Targeting our Children" and "Abortion & Premature Birth" makes Did You Know? an essential element of your pro-life tool kit.

78% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in poor and minority neighborhoods.

In fact, Planned Parenthood's latest fact sheet illustrates how their business progressed between 2007 and 2008:

Adoption referrals plummeted dramatically from 4,912 in 2007 to 2,405 in 2008.
Prenatal clients dropped from 10,914 in 2007 to 9,433 in 2008.
Surgical abortions increased from 305,310 in 2007 to 324,008 in 2008.

 
We can see that the United States' largest abortion chain is really about abortion-and nothing else.

We know they target African Americans and other minorities.
