Breast Cancer Among Young Women Almost Doubled From 1976 To 2009

Rebecca Johnson was 27 years old and had just graduated from medical school when she got the diagnosis: breast cancer. She thought she was a rare case, but then a few of her friends got it too. So did some friends of friends.

Was it all just a coincidence, or was breast cancer becoming more common in younger women?

“I really wondered,” said Johnson, now 44 and the director of the Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology program at Seattle Children’s Hospital. So she examined decades’ worth of data from the National Cancer Institute and made a disturbing find: Cases of younger women with advanced breast cancer have increased about 2% each year since the mid-1970s and show no signs of abating.

The results, published in Wednesday’s edition of the Journal of the American Medical Assn., confirmed the suspicions of many oncologists who had noticed an uptick in patients younger than 40 with cancer that had spread to the bones, brain or lungs.

In 1976, 1.53 out of every 100,000 American women 25 to 39 years old was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, the study found. By 2009, the rate had almost doubled to 2.9 per 100,000 women in that age group — a difference too large to be a chance result.

“Most studies have failed to show an absolute increase,” said Dr. Benjamin Paz, a City of Hope Cancer Center surgeon who was not involved in the study. “Now, looking at a longer period of time, this study shows there’s clearly been an increase. It’s the first to do so.”

One most often overlooked breast cancer link is contraceptives. A possible cause not mentioned in the article is the increased number of abortions, a warning that many in the pro-life movement have been alluding to for years. Number of breast cancer increases with increased number of abortions.

If you understand the effects of abortion on your body, you will understand why this study is of no surprise to me. An article by Dr. Gerard Nadal published over two years ago explains it in easy to understand language.

I bet that you can probably guess the age group of women that have the most abortions. According the the Guttmacher Institute, “More than half of American women obtaining abortions are in their 20s. Women aged 20–24 have the highest abortion rate of any age-group.” Given this information, it’s no wonder that breast cancer is on the rise in women 25-39.

Abortion Hurts Women! This is just another good example.

Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood Praises Richard Nixon’s Progressive Idea of Family Planning to Abort ‘Little Black Bastards’ During ‘Age of Enlightenment’

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Cecile Richards, head of notorious abortion provider, Planned Parenthood celebrates President Richard Nixon who supported aborting black babies, calling them “little black bastards.”

Outraged black leaders launched a video that includes statements made by Richards exposing the racial impetus of Richard Nixon’s and Planned Parenthood’s mission.

Video link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXap-OtDvVc

“2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, 50th anniversary of MLK’s I have a dream speech, yet we find blacks are still shackled, supporting an organization that considers aborting ‘little black bastards’ an age of enlightenment,” said Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, referring to a comment made by Cecile Richards.

“For years Planned Parenthood has denied its founder’s Negro Project was aimed at controlling the black birth rate. On November 7, 2012 Cecile Richards finally took the shroud off their secret. In light of this revelation, we call on the Congress to defund Planned Parenthood, one of America’s last bastions of racism,” said Catherine Davis.

“Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood openly support a racist agenda. Cecile poured accolades on Richard Nixon — a man who spoke arrogantly about abortion being used to kill off what he called ‘the little black bastards,’ said Day Gardner. “Richard Nixon was an ignorant, racist, foul-mouthed crook. The fact that Planned Parenthood’s president has the nerve to put Nixon on a pedestal for killing children proves what we have been saying all along. Planned Parenthood’s business model is exactly the same as when Margaret Sanger launched the hellish Negro Project in 1939,” said Gardner.

“What’s so bad about all of this is that some black organizations, such as the NAACP, are in bed with Planned Parenthood; promoting a false gospel; sacrificing our babies, our sons and our daughters on the altar of abortion while promoting the lie that contraceptives and abortion are somehow good for our communities. They are prostituting our culture and this flies in the face of God,” said Alveda King.

“Cecile Richards is wrong, dead wrong! The Nixon era was not an age of enlightenment but rather an age of sleazy back room deals, lies, confusion, scandal and racism…an age that ushered in a wave of brutal dismemberment and torture culminating in the deaths of more than 55 million babies…17 million ‘little black bastards’ DEAD — according to Cecile Richard’s idol.” concluded Gardner.

National Black Prolife Coalition (NBPC) Attacked for Fighting to Save Black Babies

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Klan Parenthood

Philadelphia’s Tara Murtha’s article entitled “Propaganda Film Exploits Gosnell Tragedy to Promote Conspiracy Theory” misleads people and promotes the continuation of the same old abortion practices that allowed the Gosnells of the world to continue to hurt women and kill babies.

With the use of such slanted language like “propaganda, ” “anti-choice,” and “conspiracy theory” Ms. Murtha’s clearly shows herself to be a mouthpiece for the abortion industry.

In the article she echoes Planned Parenthood’s misleading claim that “abortion only represents three percent of Planned Parenthood’s services.” A claim that they make because of, among other things, “unbundling” of services related to abortion. A practice whereby they see a patient over a couple of days for an abortion and they classify some of the services like the pregnancy test, or the initial exam as not part of the abortion but list it under other services. Whatever the percentage of their business that they count as abortion services, they are leading the charge to legally murder over 55 million babies to date. Add this to the fact that they performed a record number of abortions as reported in their 2012 annual report, 333,964, percentages don’t really mean a lot.

Another statement made by Ms. Murtha clearly showed that she is not really concerned about the facts. She states that “Right Wing Watch took notice of the group [NBPC] for posting billboard campaigns in Atlanta with slogans like, “Abortion Makes Three-Fifths Human Seem Overly Generous.” A fact which is disputed by Ryan Bomberger in a comment he left where he states, “Not that frothing liberal sources like Right Wing Watch ever bother to check the facts, the Atlanta “Juneteenth” billboard campaign wasn’t even sponsored by the National Black Prolife Coalition. It was solely created and launched by The Radiance Foundation. But it’s not accuracy you seek, simply animosity.”

With regards to “conspiracy theory,” the numbers don’t lie. Blacks make up about 12 percent of the population yet account for about 35 percent of the abortions in this country. Approximately 79 percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority neighborhoods. In New York about 60 percent of black babies are aborted. More black babies are aborted than are born alive. That’s a result of a group being targeted for elimination, not conspiracy theory. That’s GENOCIDE! Clear and simple!

You’re Teaching My Child What?

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

SPACERYoureTeachingMyChildWhatA recent article from the UK caught my eye this week. It talked about the corruption of our current generation. The sexualisation of our young people is something I‘ve blogged about and something that needs to be re-visited.

The article is written by a child psychologist who states, “I see the signs that are familiar to every parent: the eight-year-olds who are already worried about their figures; the ‘too-sexy too-soon’ 12-year-olds who won’t go out without make-up; the magazines aimed at 10 to14-year-olds that discuss oral sex.”

As a parent I understand the need to shelter our children from learning some things too early in life, like sex. As a pro-life activist, one of the areas we try to shelter our children from is learning about abortion and those images of aborted babies. In a perfect world the teaching of our children would be left up to the parents.

Once source that is trying to do the educating and stick its nose where it doesn’t belong is the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood in particular. Planned parenthood has gotten the foot in the door in many of our children’s schools to “educate” them in the area of sexual education. Talking about a conflict of interest.

Planned parenthood makes millions of dollars by performing abortions. They have a vested interested in making sure your child is sexually active and with any luck, and a lot of help from them, they’ll end up pregnant and in need of their services.

A recent video from American Life League demonstrates the role Planned Parenthood is playing to accomplish this end.

No condomAnother tactic the abortion industry uses to make sure your children need abortions is to use contraception that they knew will fail as admitted by Carol Everett, former independent abortion clinic owner, in the documentary film Bloodmoney available HERE.

We as a society need to not be afraid to speak the truth but first you must know the truth.

Parents, your children are learning about sex at an earlier age these days and the information they are getting is not always accurate or morally correct. And they’re not being told the truth about abortion and the harm it will do to their lives.

Parents, educate yourselves about abortion. Learn what they don’t want you to know and then teach your children. The life you save may be your grandchild’s.

In The Trenches: A message from our friend Rev. Walter Hoye

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

WALTER-HOYE

Two (2) weeks after the election:

In the Black Pro-Life Movement the fight for life in our culture is not about moving votes from the “left” to the “right”, repealing Obamacare or reversing Roe.

It is about reaching the heart and soul of our people for Christ sake and we’ve got so much work left to do.

It’s not about the courtroom.

It is about our culture.

We’ve got to make 2013 count.

It’s 40 years too long.

Godspeed everyone.

Silent No More Awareness Campaign Supports Bill on Interstate Abortions

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

SNMAC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 19, 2013

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

When she became pregnant as a teenager in the early 1970s, all Mary Kominsky needed was $315 and a train ticket to New York City, where abortion was legal even before Roe v. Wade.

“The horror of that day consumed me into silence,” Mrs. Kominsky says now.

Often aided by relatives or other adults, young women still cross state lines to have abortions in states that don’t require parental notification. For that reason, the women and men of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, including Mrs. Kominsky, see the need and value in Congress enacting the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act.

The act, introduced in the U.S. Senate last week, would make it illegal to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion in a state that does not require parental notification. The act also would require abortionists to alert the parents of an out-of-state minor before performing the procedure. A similar bill was introduced in the House of Representatives by Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

“A minor is not able to have any other kind of surgical procedure without parental notification, in her home state or any other state,” said Georgette Forney, co-founder of Silent No More. “But when it comes to abortion, there is always a separate set of rules. This act would help protect minors from coerced abortion, exploitation and injury. This is common sense if you care more about young women than the abortion industry.”

“This proposed law just makes sense,” said Janet Morana, also the co-founder of Silent No More. “Teenagers who develop complications after an abortion might be tempted to let their symptoms go untreated if they are trying to keep this secret from their parents. This puts their lives, their health and their future fertility in jeopardy.”

***

Since the launch of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 5,612 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 1,195 gatherings in 48 states and 10 countries. More than 12,865 people representing 77 countries are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign’s goals. The Campaign has over 1,718 testimonies posted here, with over 214 that are shared via video!

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org

Philadelphia Board of Health Wants to Kill More Poor Babies

Monday, February 18th, 2013

130218 blog image

The same Philadelphia Board of Health that ignored Gosnell’s House of Horrors is at it again! After ignoring several demands from local citizens and outraged prolife civil rights leaders calling to end the terrors of abortion in their city, the Board of Health has passed a new resolution last Friday, February 15, 2013 calling for the federal government and the state of Pennsylvania to fund all abortions for poor women. Haven’t they harmed enough women already? Now they want to go back for more killing.

They want you to forget that they turned a blind eye to Kermit Gosnell’s abortion killing center until the whistle blew so loud in 2011 that they had to take action on Gosnell, the doctor whose abortion clinic was a filthy, foul-smelling “house of horrors” that was overlooked by regulators for years. Gosnell was finally charged with murder, accused of delivering seven babies alive and then using scissors to kill them. At least one mother’s death by abortion has also been linked to Gosnell’s clinic.

According to Brenda Green, executive director of CHOICE, a nonprofit that connects the underinsured and uninsured with health services, The Pennsylvania Department of Health did nothing when they became aware of the death of Karnamaya Mongar a woman whose gruesome abortion at Gosnell’s hands resulted in the gruesome death of Ms. Mongar. Ms. Green tried to report complaints from clients, but the health department wouldn’t accept complaints from a third party. Instead, the patients had to fill out a daunting five-page form, available only in English, that required them to reveal their identities upfront and be available to testify in Harrisburg. Even with CHOICE staffers there to help, only two women agreed to fill out the form, and both decided not to submit it. The Department of State and the Philadelphia Public Health Department also had ample warning of dire conditions and took no action.

Now this same process of ignoring the problems associated with abortionists in their town is prompting the Philadelphia Board of Health to go back and kill more babies, and put the health and livelihood of more mothers in jeopardy.

Hundreds of other babies likely died in the squalid clinic that Dr. Kermit Gosnell ran from 1979 to 2010, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said at a news conference.

Even though Pennsylvania law prohibits abortion after 24 weeks except to save the life of the mother or avoid serious health risk to her, Gosnell was charged with murder, infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks and other charges. The Board of Health ignored these facts as long as they could. They want you to forget that they were in league with Gosnell’s deeds, guilty by association and by looking the other way.

In a nearly 300-page grand jury report filled with ghastly, stomach-turning detail, prosecutors said Pennsylvania regulators ignored complaints of barbaric conditions at Gosnell’s clinic, which catered to poor, immigrant and minority women in the city’s impoverished West Philadelphia section. Prosecutors called the gruesome Gosnell case a “complete regulatory collapse.” What do you call their audacity to push more abortions on poor women and their unsuspecting babies now? Definitely not hope.

“Pennsylvania is not a third-world country,” the district attorney’s office declared in the report. “There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago.” Now in 2013, they want to abort more poor babies, and kill more mothers?

At least two women died from the procedures, while scores more were injured from perforated bowels, cervixes and uteruses, authorities said.

In a typical late-term abortion, the baby is chopped apart in the uterus and then removed in pieces. That is more common than the procedure opponents call “partial-birth abortion,” in which the baby is only partially extracted before being destroyed. Prosecutors said Gosnell instead delivered many of the babies alive.

He “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” District Attorney Seth Williams said.
Gosnell referred to the practice as “snipping,” prosecutors said.

Prosecutors estimated Gosnell ended hundreds of pregnancies by cutting the spinal cords, but they said couldn’t prosecute more cases because he destroyed files.

“These killings became so routine that no one could put an exact number on them,” the grand jury report said. “They were considered ‘standard procedure.’”

Authorities raided Gosnell’s clinic in search of controlled drug violations and stumbled upon “a house of horrors”. Bags and bottles holding aborted babies “were scattered throughout the building. There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.

Prosecutors said the place reeked of cat urine because of the animals that were allowed to roam freely, instruments were not properly sterilized, and disposable medical supplies were used over and over.

White women from the suburbs were ushered into a separate, slightly cleaner area because Gosnell believed they were more likely to file complaints, Williams said.

Few if any of the unconscious patients knew their babies had been born alive and then killed, prosecutors said. Many were first-time mothers who were told they were 24 weeks pregnant, even if they were much further along, authorities said.

According to authorities, state regulators ignored complaints about Gosnell and the 46 lawsuits filed against him, and made just five annual inspections, most registered as satisfactory, since the clinic opened in 1979. The inspections stopped completely in 1993 because of what prosecutors said was the pro-abortion rights attitude that set in after Democratic Gov. Robert Casey, an abortion foe, left office.
Williams accused the state Health Department officials of “utter disregard” for the safety of women undergoing abortion, and said the testimony of agency officials “enraged” the grand jury. But he said he could find no criminal offenses with which they could be charged, in part because too much time has elapsed.

“These officials were far more protective of themselves when they testified before the grand jury. Even (Health Department) lawyers, including the chief counsel, brought private attorneys with them — presumably at government expense,” the report said.
The state’s reluctance to investigate, under several administrations, may stem partly from the sensitivity of the abortion debate, Williams said. Nonetheless, he called Gosnell’s case a clear case of murder.

“A doctor who with scissors cuts into the necks, severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies who would survive with proper medical attention commits murder under the law,” he said. “Regardless of one’s feelings about abortion, whatever one’s beliefs, that is the law.”

Four clinic employees were also charged with murder, and five more, including Gosnell’s wife, Pearl, with conspiracy, drug and other crimes. All were arrested. Gosnell’s wife performed extremely late-term abortions on Sundays, the report said.

One of the murder charges against Gosnell involves a woman seeking an abortion, Karnamaya Mongar, who authorities said died in 2009 because she was given too much of the painkiller Demerol and other drugs.

Gosnell wasn’t at the clinic at the time. His staff administered the drugs repeatedly as they waited for him to arrive at night, as was his custom, the grand jury found.

The malpractice suits filed against Gosnell include one over the death of a 22-year-old Philadelphia woman, a mother of two, who died of a bloodstream infection and a perforated uterus in 2000. Gosnell sometimes sewed up such injuries without telling the women about the complications, prosecutors said.

It added that Gosnell had previously insisted he was innocent of any crimes and predicted he would be acquitted if he was charged. After pressure was applied by leaders from across the nation, Philadelphia gate keepers finally took some cursory action against Kermit Gosnell for running an abortion nightmare on the “poor side” of town.

It can only be expected that regulators will try to gloss over the Gosnell chapter and try a hard sell on abortions that are “safe, legal and rare.” Don’t buy the pitch. RECALL ABORTION!
