visit slate.com and read the article "Do Abortions Cause Breast Cancer?"
In case you wondered, the answer is NO. Yet anti-abortion legislators in Kansas have enacted a law which requires that women seeking an abortion must be warned that the abortion could cause breast cancer.
the anti abortion movement is seeking to re-define the phrase "informed consent" in the case of abortion. Unable to outlaw it by conventional legislation, the focus is now on putting up enough obstacles in the way to make sure it does not happen. Women seeking an abortion now may lectured on breast cancer risk, despite the fact that there is apparently no link between abortion and breast cancer. They may also be subjected to a forced ultrasound (the only way to escape the ultrasound is to, bingo, change your mind about the abortion). The operative concept here is that no woman would intentionally abort a fetus after a doctor has told her that she is carrying.
But think about it. The woman came in to get an abortion. Would she be seeking an abortion if she were not sure she is pregnant? Most women know the meaning of the word "pregnant," right? Most women understand that, if they do not terminate the pregnancy, a baby will be born in seven months.
I realize that abortion is a morally debated topic and that ending it is one of the pillars of the Republican Party, but the thinking process here is alien to me.
