China, Abortion, and Breast Cancer

This has been written about on many sites, but I haven't seen this particular article referenced before.

Written by a doctor who is on the board of the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, I think that perhaps this article is the one to read.

This new article is another example of the recent excellent scholarship on abortion in peer-reviewed journals coming out of the People's Republic. There is no bigger data base than China, where there are an average of 8.2 million pregnancy terminations every year, and 40 abortions for every 100 live births. Chinese researchers and physicians are unencumbered by abortion politics, and do not cover up data showing long term effects of induced abortion, as do their US counterparts in governmental, professional and consumer organizations.
Dr. Davenport, along with two other doctors, was prevented from delivering a paper on abortion complications at Seoul, South Korea earlier this year. She concludes her article with this statement.

 It is a disgrace that a more honest discourse about difficult medical topics can be found in the People's Republic of China than in the USA.  The censorship of medical journals, prevention of conference presentations, denial of grant money and faculty promotions, and self-censorship of honest scholars in academic medicine who want to tell the truth but feel they cannot, impoverishes us, should not be tolerated.

Perhaps now that China is producing the evidence, the rest of the world will pay attention. There is no denying the statistics from a nation that has more abortions than any other country in the world.
