Abortion Causes Cancer, Insanity and Blindness!

Abortion is the new marijuana. When people call a pregnancy resources center, they’re apt to get hysterical warnings about the dangers of abortion. Some of this “information” is straight out of “Reefer Madness” and “Marijuana: Assassin of Youth.”

Some of these pregnancy resources centers are funded by the government — your tax dollars.

This information was obtained by congressional aides who posed as pregnant teenagers. They called 25 of these pregnancy centers during a 5-year period. The callers were repeatedly warned that abortion leads to cancer, infertility and severe stress disorders.

This 5-year report was prepared for Rep. Henry Waxman (D-California). There are over 4,000 of these pregnancy clinics nationwide. Most of them don’t receive any federal funding. But the 25 clinics in Waxman’s report are funded by taxpayers.

Of these 25 clinics, two of them couldn’t even be reached (your tax dollars at work). Eight clinics warned callers that having an abortion almost doubles the risk of breast cancer. The National Cancer Institute has found no link between abortion and cancer risk.

Some of the clinics told callers that abortion leads to severe long-term emotional disorders. The American Psychological Association hasn’t found any such link.

By now it shouldn’t be surprising that our government is lying to us over and over and over. And yet…

Waxman condemned these clinics for giving false information about basic medical facts. He said “It’s wrong to pour millions of federal dollars into organizations that are providing false health information to vulnerable teenagers.”

That last paragraph could be applied to military recruiters as well...

J. Marquis: Yup, that last paragraph sure fits recruiters.

You have it completely backwards!

It is Planned Parenthood that is giving the misinformation and are definitely being funded by your tax dollars.

Women are discouraged from having sonograms so they don't "see" their babies. They are encouraged that abortions are safe and a good "choice" so PP can make their ridiculous profits. Tell that to the women that have died from hemorraging at so-called safe clinics.

Post-abortion syndrome is a documented reality.T he American Psychological Association says that PAS doesn’t exist.This group has been strongly pro-abortion, and this definitely colors its thinking. But during the past decade or more, there have been dozens of national conferences on PAS. There are many professional articles and about 15 books adding more and more authentication to its existence and knowledge about it. Further, every one of the almost 4,000 pro-life pregnancy help centers in the U.S. now has found that an increasing percentage of their time is now devoted to treating PAS women.

These "pregnancy centers" are mostly staffed by volunteers who have no other interest than to help pregnant women.

And on the Breast Cancer- Abortion link the science is pretty simple.

The cells in your breast change twice. First when you get pregnant. Secondly, when you give birth, the cells in your breasts transform into a type of cell that is less prone to breast cancer. If you do not make it to term, ie via miscarriage or abortion, the cells do not change and have a higher risk of breast cancer.

This is a fact. What the increased risk is I don't know and is what is debatable. Even if it is not double women should be informed.

Jane: If you want to put more faith in the Bible Brigade than the National Cancer Institute and the American Psychological Association, you're more than welcome to. I prefer science myself.

Oh you prefer science! Well just in case you missed a couple of classes:

From 2 science textbooks:

"Zygote. This cell results from the union of an oocyte and a sperm. A zygote is the beginning of a new human being."
"This [ a zygote] highly specialized, totipotent cell marked the beginning of each of us as a unique individual."

[Moore, Keith L. and Persaud, T.V.N. The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology. 6th edition. Philadelphia: W.B. Saunders Company, 1998, p. 2, p. 18]

"Fertilization is a sequence of events that begins with the contact of a sperm (spermatozoon) with a secondary oocyte (ovum) and ends with the fusion of their pronuclei (the haploid nuclei of the sperm and ovum) and the mingling of their chromosomes to form a new cell. This fertilized ovum, known as a zygote, is a large diploid cell that is the beginning, or primordium, of a human being."

[Moore, Keith L. Essentials of Human Embryology. Toronto: B.C. Decker Inc, 1988, p.2]

OK, so these excerpts from a high school science textbook explain why abortion is hazardous to the mother? My original answer is that I put more faith in the National Cancer Institute and American Psychological Association -- and Planned Parenthood -- than some volunteers staffing a pregnancy counseling center. (OK, maybe I was a little harsh when I called them the Bible Brigade.) That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Statisticians have accused the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of manipulating statistics for the purpose of justifying massive government funding. This issue was addressed by NCI statistician Dr. Irwin Bross in a 33-page position paper in which he went so far as to call the NCI's cover-up "criminal fraud" and "genocide."

As for the APA, I'll let Tom Cruise take that one.

The National Cancer Institute was manipulating statistics to cover up the "fact" that abortion increases cancer risk? Do you have a link to this? I can't imagine why they'd have any vested interest one way or the other over whether abortion increases the risk of cancer. With our current theocratic government, the NCI could probably quadruple their funding if they announced that abortion causes cancer, AIDS and atheism.

Another good reason for government to stay out of health care.

James: Uh, well, yes and no. I agree it's more consistent to want the government totally out of health care. Government involvement (in anything) is a double-edged sword. But I still think we need a safety net -- health care, minimum wage, etc. I'm trying to convert myself to a more Libertarian approach, but it's a slow process.

this is so sick.... I really wish we could have a government that wasn't controlled by right-wing-anti-science whackjobs.

but I won't hold my breath

L: Now just a minute; rightwing anti-science whackjobs made America great. At least that's what our future history books will say.
