Commenting on the Komen reversal RE breast cancer screening at Planned Parenthood, Senator Campfield makes the claim that abortion causes breast cancer. He has a website link to prove it. "It's on the internet so my version of science is true" should be Campfield's slogan.
Dispensing medical information from such a high pulpit as State Senator, Campfield should rely on established authorities like the National Institute of Health or the National Cancer Institute, for instance. But he will not. Only dishonesty will serve his intentions.
In February 2003, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) convened a workshop of over 100 of the world’s leading experts who study pregnancy and breast cancer risk. Workshop participants reviewed existing population-based, clinical, and animal studies on the relationship between pregnancy and breast cancer risk, including studies of induced and spontaneous abortions. They concluded that having an abortion or miscarriage does not increase a woman’s subsequent risk of developing breast cancer.
