Women seeking abortions in Mississippi must first sign a form indicating they've been told abortion can increase their risk of breast cancer. They aren't told that scientific reviews have concluded there is no such risk.
Similar information suggesting a cancer link is given to women considering abortion in Texas, Louisiana and Kansas, and legislation to require such notification has been introduced in 14 other states.
More than a year ago, a panel of scientists convened by the National Cancer Institute reviewed available data and concluded there is no link. A scientific review in the Lancet, a British medical journal, came to the same conclusion, questioning the methodology in a few studies that have suggested a link.
Still, information suggesting a link is being given to women to read during mandatory waiting periods before abortions. In some cases, the information is on the states' Web sites.
"We're going to continue to educate [lie to] the public about this," said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, an anti-abortion group.
These fuckers are souless scum. If they cared about unwanted pregnancies, they would be handing out condoms and morning after pills, but they don't. All they care about is making a quick buck by exploiting peoples beliefs.
They do shit like this to first get attention, and then to get donations.
If these "people" would get the hell out of the way, there wouldn't be any abortions in this country... but they won't, 'cause they're getting rich by exploiting the issue.
