“October has been designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and greater awareness is certainly needed.[. . .]
“Unfortunately, for some groups, when it comes to breast cancer, it is ‘Selective Awareness’ month.
“The National Cancer Institute (part of the National Institutes of Health) and some groups with an interest in ‘reproductive rights’ or breast cancer research are keeping women in the dark about two risk factors for breast cancer: induced abortion and hormonal contraception.
“The chief reason women are not being informed of these risks is not a lack of evidence. It is an epidemic of political correctness.
“The American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation continue to deny the link between induced abortion and an increased risk of breast cancer. They make no effort to publicize (or they wholly ignore) the increased risk of breast cancer associated with oral contraceptive use.”
