Good Research Opens Minds

Because of Good Scientific Research, She Changed her Mind

In a workshop in 2003, the National Cancer Institute denied an abortion-breast cancer link.

Dr. Louise Brinton, an NCI official who helped organize the 2003 conference, has now reversed her opinion, admitting that abortion and oral contraceptives do raise breast cancer risk.

40% increased risk for breast cancer for women who have abortions

Dr. Brinton's changed opinion is due to the results of a study she co-authored with researcher Jessica Dolle in 2009, which documents a 40% increased risk for breast cancer for women who have abortions, and up to a 320% risk increase for breast cancer for women using oral contraceptives.
