Abortion Women's health

Dr. Peter Saunders discusses the abortion/breast cancer link

Here is a link to a LifeNews article by Dr. Peter Saunders discussing recent developments concerning the abortion/breast cancer link. 

It is important that discussions of this issue  are based on the best science available. The piece by Dr. Saunders ends with this carefully expressed opinion: “This is clearly a debate that will run and run and in which huge vested interests are involved. In the meantime women should not be fobbed off with the unjustified absolutism of the summary sentence from the RCOG, as most presently are. Rather they should be made aware that a link between abortion and breast cancer is biologically plausible but that the evidence is still hotly disputed by researchers, obstetricians and gynaecologists.”
