"Birth Control Pill Raises Breast Cancer Risk"

"Birth Control Pill Raises Breast Cancer Risk"

From Karen Malec, (Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer)

Dear Friends:

The Chicago Tribune published an article on Monday, December 3, 2005 discussing a review of medical studies showing that the birth control pill raises breast cancer risk. The article, "Why isn't this study on the pill heeded?" by Dennis Byrne said that the review was published in the prestigious journal, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, in 2006, but journalists in the mainstream media have chosen to ignore it because the findings conflict with the feminist religious tenets that they hold so dear.

A link to the Chicago Tribune article appears in our "Abortion-Breast Cancer News Headlines" shown below.

Both the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the World Health Organization admit that the birth control pill (also called oral contraceptives) in the combined form (estrogen plus progestin) is a carcinogen. [1,2]

Even so, the NCI's statements on its website about oral contraceptives are contradictory. On its Breast Cancer Prevention web pages, the NCI offers two versions - one for health professionals and the other for patients. On the Patient Version web page, the agency identifies combined oral contraceptives as a risk factor for breast cancer, but the NCI omits this crucial information on the Health Professional Version. [3,4]

Even though the agency admits that combined oral contraceptives are carcinogenic, the NCI has omitted combined oral contraceptives from its Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool, a tool used to calculate an individual's breast cancer risk. [5] That leaves many at-risk women and their doctors unaware of their vulnerability to the disease.

On its website, the NCI does not inform taxpayers about either of the major reviews of the medical studies in the New England Journal of Medicine and Mayo Clinic Proceedings that were published last year showing that use of oral contraceptives raise risk. [6,7]

The fact that combined oral contraceptives and combined hormone replacement therapy are accepted risk factors for breast cancer is an additional piece of evidence supporting the biological basis for an abortion-breast cancer link. Women are never exposed to more estrogen at one time than when they are carrying a normal pregnancy. Only the differentiation process, which takes place in the last months of a full term pregnancy, protects the mother from estrogen overexposure by maturing 85% of her breast lobules into cancer-resistant lobules. Abortion should be listed as risk factor in the NCI's Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool.

Hate mail is already pouring into Dennis Byrne's blog. Why not thank him for his courage in reporting the truth when so many journalists are reluctant to report these findings? His blog is:

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul

FBI Fun!

By Laramie Hirsch  The World Wide Web is indeed a “web,” and Deep State agencies are its spider. This whole situation that TLM Catholics are in with the feds reminds me of the messages from Our Lady of Heroldsbach.  Specifically this one from 1959*: “An adult seer had a vision of a large spider web that ran through the whole  universe. In its center sat a metal blinking spider. The woman heard a voice: ‘This web must  not be touched, when it is touched, it will tear’.” And yet, here we online Trad Catholics are, playing in the metal spider’s web.  We’ve been doing this for a quarter of a century.  Just piddling away on the Internet, freely sharing our thoughts and feelings online under the presumption that we’re protected from oppression by “American free speech,” heedless to any notion of a threat.  Here we are, under a supposedly “Catholic” president and a supposedly “Catholic pope,” and it looks like the Stasi of the old USSR is reforming once more, only this time with an American f
