TUSCON, June 5, 2003 ( – The president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, Karen Malec, announced the publication of her article discussing the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link in the summer issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, a publication of the Tucson based Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).

The article is entitled, “The Abortion-Breast Cancer Link: How Politics Trumped Science and Informed Consent”.  It discusses the epidemiologic evidence of an ABC link; the silence and denial of the National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, the American Medical Association and women’s groups; media bias; the bitter opposition of pro-abortion politicians; the implications for patient care; and medical malpractice issues.  Five medical groups recognize the evidence: the Catholic Medical Association, the National Physicians Center for Family Resources, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Polycarp Research Institute, and the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute.  See the article in the AAPS journal at:
