I really wonder what pushes someone to regurgitate nonsense on such as a level as Campfield. The site he references links to the study done by the National Cancer Institute which refutes the claims that he’s making.
In February 2003, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) convened a workshop of over 100 of the world’s leading experts who study pregnancy and breast cancer risk. Workshop participants reviewed existing population-based, clinical, and animal studies on the relationship between pregnancy and breast cancer risk, including studies of induced and spontaneous abortions. They concluded that having an abortion or miscarriage does not increase a woman’s subsequent risk of developing breast cancer.
Campfield has created his own infinity loop. Think of it this way: Stacey Campfield is an extension cord plugged into himself. In the right circumstances he could provide a significant and powerful connection between power and need. But in his current configuration he’s useless.
One of the comments on Knoxviews said it best:
Unfortunately, Campfield is not alone with this particular bit of misinformation. Over the past 7 years, numerous religious-right nut jobs, particularly rrnj’s in government and pregnancy crisis centers, have tried pushing this misinformation.
Even Bush the lesser edited the National Cancer Institute in 2002 to reflect there was a link between abortion and breast cancer. Rep Henry Waxman was a champion trying to end this dangerous line of thought/coercion.
It is FALSE information, and as far as I’m concerned, anyone that continues to push this falsity should be charged with being a danger to the general public.
Many thanks to Knoxviews for putting this information out there and getting a dialogue started!
