NAQs* on MAPs and OC and BC**

NOTE: Seven world-renowned, peer-reviewed, medical journals all can't be wrong: Journal of the Natl Cancer Inst (JNCI) ... Cancer ... Anticancer Research ...Archives of Internal Medicine ... The Lancet Oncology / World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) ... Cancer Causes and Control ... 3rd European Breast Cancer Conference.
Of the sources below for eleven (11) published research studies from 1986-2005, there isn't a single one from an anti-abortion, anti-morning-after-pill site. They are all from the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health (NIH), official IARC press releases, WebMD or other unbiased, objective science periodicals.
All eleven found increased risks of breast cancer from using birth control pills (oral contraceptives or OC).
And since Morning After Pills (MAPs) are typically "10-20 times the progesterone" and "5 times" the estrogen as in the standard daily Pill, according to Pharmacists for Life, it is possible that "a very high dose" of the same hormones can as well.
It's never been studied. Don't you think it should be?
There is also a twelfth source--a published letter--by a CDC cancer research head, however, that refuted the birth control/breast cancer link, by saying that, instead, "Induced abortion before first term pregnancy increases the risk of breast cancer."
Lastly, we'll show how easy it was to find NCI's prominent "No-BC/BC-Link" links from the 1980s (and one from 2002 with possibly misstated results) but how hard--or impossible--it was to find on NCI's site the 1990s-2000s studies that showed there are BC/BC links.
