Abortion/Breast Cancer—No link at all? You Decide!
INFebruary of 2003, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) claimed that no significant link
had been found between abortion and the incidence of breast cancer. Most known risk
factors for breast cancer are attributable to estrogen overexposure. The U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services in the 11th Report on Carcinogens (Jan. 2005) listed steroidalestrogens as a “known” human carcinogen (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov. “‘Estrogens, Steroidal’
was first listed in the 10th Report on Carcinogens in 2002). In a healthy pregnancy, a woman’sblood estrogen level rises by 2000% by the end of the first trimester. Terminating that pregnancy

studies and reviews which report a significant association, and the numbers of advocates (on
