Last week, I erroneously claimed that the February 24-26 workshop sponsored by the National Cancer Institute on whether there is a link between breast cancer and abortion would issue its report today. It did issue its report, but only to the NCI where a further process of review will occur.

However, as has been reported hither and yon, the workshop's report to the NCI states that there is no connection between abortion and breast cancer.

Here's one article with a pro-life response and here's the press release put out by the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer.

The Cliff's Notes version of the CABC's response is that the determination that there is no link between breast cancer and abortion relies on an unproven (and possibly disproven) claim that women WITH breast cancer are much more likely to truthfully report whether they have a history of abortion than are women WITHOUT breast cancer.
