Abortion, Breast Cancer Link is Unproven

Dr. Charles Shapiro writes in a letter to the editor about Ohio House Bill 200, introduced by Rep. Ron Hood of Ashville. The Bill would impose up to a $1 million fine and 10 years imprisonment if physicians fail to counsel women seeking abortion on a number of points, including that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer. Shapiro writes, Irrespective of how one feels about the right to life versus a woman’s right to choose, the facts need to presented as accurately as possible based on thorough and thoughtful review of the medical literature.
