"Why has the ABC link been suppressed for 53 years?

Regional Cancer Center Expert, Carmen Ligia-Pisc, Is Either Lying or Uninformed About Abortion-Breast Cancer Link, Says Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer / Expert Challenged to Debate Risk

MEDIA ADVISORY, Oct. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- An expert from the Regional Cancer Center (Erie, Pennsylvania), Dr. Carmen Ligia- Pisc, is either lying or uninformed about 53 years of research supporting an abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link, says the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. The group challenged her to a debate. 

Ligia-Pisc told Jeremy Beecher from WJET that childbearing reduces breast cancer risk, but then contradicted herself by concluding, "...there is no correlation between the abortion and the risk of breast cancer." [1] 

"If childbearing reduces risk, then the woman who has a baby has a lower risk than the one who has an abortion," said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition. "Even an expert witness for the abortion industry admitted that during testimony in a Florida lawsuit in 1999. [2] 

"A Turkish study in 2009 said most studies report risk increases for women who have abortions. [3] Most have only compared the risk of having an abortion with the risk of not having had that pregnancy, instead of comparing the effect of having an abortion with the effect of having a full term pregnancy. By only considering the former (the independent link between abortion and breast cancer) and by not counting the latter - the risk-reducing effect of childbearing - it's easier for researchers to underestimate the risk and conceal the link from women." 

"We challenge Ligia-Pisc to a debate. We've challenged five others, including Susan G. Komen for the Cure, but they've all ducked our call for a normal scientific debate. Ligia-Pisc should: 

1) Explain why premature birth before 32 weeks would more than double breast cancer risk (and why she thinks abortion, which also involves estrogen overexposure and breast growth, would not increase risk); 

2) Refute the biological reasons for an ABC link [4]; and 

3) Write a letter to the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons challenging the evidence it published revealing fatal flaws in the prospective studies reporting no increased risk. [5,6,7] 

"Why has the ABC link been suppressed for 53 years? That's easy. Five women have successfully sued abortionists who failed to warn them about the ABC link and the risk of emotional harm," observed Malec. [7] 

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer is an international women's organization founded to protect the health and save the lives of women by educating and providing information on abortion as a risk factor for breast cancer.
