RUSH: The story here is 2007. I've had a number of people tell me they didn't know -- they hadn't heard -- about this link between abortion and breast cancer. Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. This is 2007.
"The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons published a study yesterday entitled, 'The Breast Cancer Epidemic.' It showed that, among seven risk factors, abortion is the 'best predictor of breast cancer,' and fertility is also a useful predictor. The study by Patrick Carroll of PAPRI in London showed that countries with higher abortion rates, such as England & Wales, could expect a substantial increase in breast cancer incidence. Where abortion rates are low (i.e., Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic) a smaller increase is expected. Where a decline in abortion has taken place, (i.e., Denmark and Finland) a decline in breast cancer is anticipated."
This is based on studies. "Carroll used the same mathematical model for a previous forecast of numbers of breast cancers in future years for England & Wales based on cancer data up to 1997 that has proved quite accurate for predicting cancers observed in years 1998 to 2004." So it's a British group and they're studying it in England and European countries, but this is by no means the only story that's ever been published on this. It's quite common. Now, not in the Drive-By Media, but I know about it. It's happening.
I don't know how many different links I've seen, different studies. (interruption) Who went ballistic the first time I did this? (interruption) Oh, well, I think they do every time I mention it. I do remember first mentioning this five or six years ago. And of course any time you succeed in piercing the protective cocoon in which the left lives, they act like stuck pigs. Any time you come up with a winning pro-life argument, they go batty. They go nuts. One of the unspoken controversies, by the way, between the Susan Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood... Even I failed to make this connection.
Folks, you've got Komen, which is a foundation trying to go eliminate or reduce breast cancer. And then you got Planned Parenthood which is conducting abortions which lead to an increase in breast cancer. And the president of the Komen foundation eliminated some of the funding for Planned Parenthood based on some guidelines that they have. She's been forced to walk the plank and resign, by the way. That's the latest on that. But that was an unspoken undercurrent going on between these two groups, and that's why Planned Parenthood went absolutely batty when Komen pulled their money. There are links, and they have been documented by medical authorities that are irrefutable on the linkage to abortion and breast cancer.
