SYDNEY, February 17, 2003 ( - Dr Angela Lanfranchi Jersey writes in the Australian paper The Age today about the link between abortion and breast cancer.  She is a breast cancer surgeon, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and clinical assistant professor of surgery at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Jersey. Dr. Lanfranchi, who is on a speaking tour of Australia, explains how she began to notice the link in 1993 after she included a question about prior abortions on her intake forms.  Lanfranchi says that she experiences “paternalistic censorship” every time she tries to speak on the science supporting the abortion-breast cancer link.  However she notes that the link is fully verified by the scientific evidence.  Moreover some of the studies were performed by pro-abortion researchers.

The doctor quotes one such researcher, Dr. Janet Daling, who identifies herself as ‘pro-choice’.  Daling says: “If politics gets involved in science, it will really hold back the progress we make. I have three sisters with breast cancer, and I resent people messing with the scientific data to further their own agenda, be they pro-choice or pro-life. I would have loved to have found no association between breast cancer and abortion, but our research is rock solid, and our data is accurate. It’s not a matter of believing. It’s a matter of what is.”
