It’s hard to totally understand the twisted minds of anti-abortion bottom feeders who can’t wait to meddle in other people’s lives through contraception. Yes, contraception.
In one of the most bizarre approaches yet in making their argument, LifeNews splashed this down-the-rabbit-hole headline across their webpage:
Yet the claim didn't have anything to do with a new study they featured below the headline. They even say so in the first paragraph:
A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association on February 27 finds researchers noting an increase in advanced cases of breast cancer over the last 33 years. However, the authors essentially ignore how abortion plays a great role in that increase.
You can’t make this stuff up. This surreal story continued:
Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, told LifeNews “It’s peculiar, but not surprising, that the authors offered no hypotheses in their paper explaining the increased incidence in advanced cancers among young women. Abortion and use of hormonal contraceptive steroids among teenagers are the elephants in the living room that the medical establishment ignores.”
Malec avoids the subject of income inequality, the lack of health care coverage and unemployment in minority urban areas, and instead blames abortions and contraception for the increased cancer and death rates.
The rate of advanced breast cancer doubled for African Americans, ages 25-39, climbing from 3.14 in 1976 to 6.25 per 100,000 in 2009 … At the same time, black women have abortions at much higher rates than their white counterparts … the rate of advanced breast cancer for non-Hispanic whites in the same age group annual percent change of 2.67.
ObamaCare Contraceptives cause Cancer and Death: The whole point of this convoluted argument is summed up below:
“Many more young women are at risk for developing advanced breast cancer in the future because of an ObamaCare mandate requiring employers to purchase insurance that will provide “free” (cancer-causing) hormonal contraceptive steroids and abortion-inducing drugs,” warned Malec. “It doesn’t matter to government officials how many lives are destroyed because of it.”
