In New York 41% of Pregnancies Result in Abortions

Meanwhile, bureaucrats push for more centers to facilitate abortions

CBS

Archbishop Timothy Dolan is calling for efforts to make abortions in New York City “rare.”

Dolan gathered with other religious leaders on Thursday to draw attention to the city’s high abortion rate. The city health department last month released statistics that showed 41 percent of pregnancies were terminated in 2009.Abortions

While the numbers have declined in the last decade, the religious leaders said they are still too high.

Dolan said the practice is unlikely to end but that it was important ‘to tell people what is happening.”

The Wall Street Journal reports that the religious leaders also criticized public schools sex education programs that include condom distribution.

City Council Takes Aim At Crisis Pregnancy Centers

The New York City Council introduced a bill Tuesday they said would protect women seeking help at “crisis pregnancy centers” across the city.

The sponsor of the bill, Councilwoman Jessica Lappin, said the measure was aimed at centers she charged were nothing more than anti-choice centers masquerading as health clinics, 1010 WINS Senior Correspondent Stan Brooks reported.

“These are not licensed medical facilities. Most of the time, they do not have a licensed medical staff on site — they have staff or volunteers who have an agenda that they are trying to push,” Lappin said.

The City Council said the bill would require the limited service pregnancy centers to provide disclosure if they did not provide abortions, FDA-approved contraception or referrals for the services.

The crisis pregnancy centers would also be required to display signs at the entrance of their facilities as well as in waiting rooms and advertisements if they did not provide the services or have a licensed medical professional on site.

Lappin said women visiting the centers had been given “factually inaccurate information” and were “forced to watch videos.”

“They’re preying on vulnerable women, many [crisis pregnancy centers] set up purposely across the street from Planned Parenthood or in the same building as those clinics to try and confuse women and draw them in,” Lappin said.

“You’re given, in fact, a study that has been completely mis-credited, thrown out by all scientific opinion leaders that says abortion will raise your rate of breast cancer,” City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said. “With this bill, women across the five boroughs can feel safer knowing that the city is ensuring that when they seek pregnancy-related services they know what they are getting at a given center.”

E.M.C. Frontline Pregnancy Centers, among the organizations called into question by Naral Pro-Choice New York, believes the proposed bill is unfair.

The president of E.M.C. Pregnancy Centers, Chris Slattery, told CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer: “This is an outrageous attack on the first amendment rights of law abiding, helpful resource centers.”

Slattery runs 12 pro-life crisis counseling centers for pregnant women.

When asked what would happen if somebody came to his office and said they were thinking about abortion would they be counseled that an abortion could cause breast cancer, Slattery said, “Yes they would. They would absolutely be counseled and this is backed up by scientific evidence, a massive amount of scientific evidence that’s being squashed, squelched and suppressed.

But Dr. Morris Iskander, the doctor at one of Slattery’s clinics, said he doesn’t agree.

He said there is no correlation between abortion and breast cancer.

“Not whatsoever,” Dr. Iskander said.  However, Dr. Louise Brinton, a researcher at the National Cancer Institute has admitted there is indeed a link between aborting a baby and the development of breast cancer, reversing her previously held belief that there was no such a thing.

The bill will force clinics to tell women upfront whether they provide abortion services or birth control. Opponents of the bill said that if it passes they intend to sue.

Clinics that violate the full disclosure provisions could be fined, or closed for five days if they have three or more violations within two years.

The Link between Abortion and Breast Cancer: What the Public Health Establishment and the Abortion Industry Won’t Tell You.

According to Joel Brind, Ph.D., a professor of Biology and Endocrinology of Baruch College of the City University of New York, there is a relation between abortion and breast cancer development.

“So in other words, a woman who finds herself pregnant at age fifteen will have a higher breast cancer risk if she chooses to abort that pregnancy than if she carries the pregnancy to term, correct?”

Answer: “Probably, yes.”

The only thing surprising about this matter-of-fact admission is that it was made by a scientist testifying under oath as a witness for a group of abortionists, for the purpose of making the case against the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link!

Dr. Lynn Rosenberg of the Boston University School of Medicine could not deny the ABC link within the confinements of cross-examination, which did not allow her to put things in her own words. When such experts do make statements in their own words, they say that a woman who chooses abortion does not get the protective effect of a full-term pregnancy. But such a statement is misleading and does not go far enough to delineate the adverse health effect of elective abortion.

In fact, overwhelming published evidence spanning the last forty years substantiates that the impact is worse. In addition to abrogating a full-term pregnancy’s protective effect against breast cancer, abortion adds to a woman’s breast cancer risk, leaving it higher than it would have been had she not become pregnant at all.

Why does abortion have any influence over a woman’s future risk of contracting breast cancer? Pregnancy not only prepares a baby for birth, but it also prepares the mother’s breasts for the role of feeding the baby after birth. Almost immediately after conception, a mother’s ovaries begin secreting ever increasing quantities of the hormone estrogen. Estrogen’s job is to make the cells in the breasts proliferate so that the breasts will become large enough to feed the baby after birth. It is not until the third trimester, at about thirty-two weeks’ gestation, that other hormones make these cells differentiate into milk-producing tissues. If this process is interrupted by abortion (or even a live birth) before differentiation takes place, a woman is left with more cancer-vulnerable cells in her breasts than were there before she got pregnant. This translates into a higher risk of breast cancer later in life.

It is important to note that most pregnancies that end in spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) do so because of inadequate hormonal production by the ovaries. Consequently, there is no substantial overexposure to growth-promoting estrogen and no increase in the risk of breast cancer.

This fact has provided substantial grist for the denial mill of mainstream sources of public health information. For example, according to the American Cancer Society’s comprehensive 1997 review of the ABC link, “Definitive conclusions about an association between breast cancer risk and spontaneous or induced abortions are not possible at present.” It is only by diluting abortion’s effect, through the inclusion of miscarriages, that such an inconclusive assessment of the data be drawn.

The “political incorrectness” of the ABC link has led to even more curious phenomena, such as the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) disparagement of the research it commissioned for the specific purpose of investigating the ABC link. In 1994, Dr. Janet Daling and colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, published their results in the NCI’s own journal. They reported:

  1. a 50% increase in the risk of breast cancer before age 45 among women who had one or more induced abortions;
  2. an 80% increase in the risk of breast cancer among women who had any abortions and who also had any family history of breast cancer;
  3. a more than 100% risk increase among women who had any abortions before age 18 or after age 30;
  4. an incalculably high risk increase among women who had an abortion before age 18 and who also had any family history of the disease.

Such a clear indictment of abortion as a breast cancer risk factor (especially by a strongly pro-choice research team) could only be published by the NCI along with an editorial which branded the results “far from conclusive” and likely flawed by something called “reporting bias.”

This “reporting bias” refers to a hypothetical difference in the veracity of breast cancer patients compared to that of healthy women. The theory is that if breast cancer patients are more likely to admit previous abortions, then abortion will appear to be more common among women who developed breast cancer than among those who didn’t and an apparent (but artificial) risk increase will surface in the data. While the possibility of reporting bias is a valid concern, researchers have tested for reporting bias without finding it in ABC research. In fact, Daling, et al., tested for reporting bias rigorously in their study and reported in their paper that they did not find such bias in the data. However, one would never guess that from the editorial. In fact, the only study which claimed to have uncovered direct evidence of reporting bias relied on the preposterous assumption that breast cancer patients in Sweden had over-reported abortions, i.e., claimed to have had abortions that never took place! This conclusion was based on the dubious presumption that the computerized records in Sweden were flawless. This claim of over-reporting of abortions was eventually (and quietly) retracted in 1998 by the World Health Organization research team that had originally made the claim back in 1991.

Of course, no one argues with the fact that, all other things being equal, it is better to rely on medical records established at the time of abortion rather than upon interviewing breast cancer patients many years later. But then, it is most curious that the NCI and others who would use this argument to dismiss all the interview-based studies conveniently omit the fact that the one 1989 American study based on medical records, reported a 90% increase in breast cancer risk with abortion! Instead, they have relied largely on a 1997 Danish study based on the medical records of all 1.5 million women born in Denmark between 1935 and 1978. That study reported: “Induced abortions have no overall effect on the risk of breast cancer.” However, it was so seriously flawed as to render its overall results entirely invalid. For just one example, the Danish study utilized medical records of abortions dating back only to 1973, in which year, the study implied, elective abortion was legalized in Denmark. In truth, elective abortion was legalized in Denmark way back in 1939, and 60,000 women in the study who had legal abortions on record, were misclassified as not having had an abortion! Yet, to this day the NCI and other agencies still rely on the Danish study as more or less definitive in showing that, overall, abortion does not raise the breast cancer risk.

But things are finally beginning to change. The court testimony cited at the beginning of this article, for example, was just taken in November of last year. More recently, The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), arguably the most influential medical journal in the world, finally listed abortion as a risk factor for breast cancer in its review of breast cancer risk this past February. The NEJM is the journal which published and championed the Danish study only three years ago. Most recently, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RCOG), the agency which sets the standards of care for abortion practitioners in the United Kingdom, validated the evidence for the ABC link. Specifically, the March, 2000, edition of RCOG’s triennially revised “Evidence-based guideline No. 7: The care of women requesting induced abortion” reviews our own “comprehensive review and meta-analysis” of the worldwide ABC literature, which was published in 1996 in the British Medical Association’s Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. The RCOG guideline restates our summary finding of a significant, overall 30% increased risk of breast cancer with abortion. It also states that our review was “carefully conducted” and comments that “the Brind paper had no major methodological shortcomings and could not be disregarded.”

As of this writing, the ABC link has been evidenced by 13 out of 14 epidemiological studies in the U.S. and 27 out of 34 worldwide. The biological basis of the ABC link is well established. It was even demonstrated experimentally in laboratory rats twenty years ago. Even if scientific rigor does not demand that such overwhelming evidence constitutes conclusive proof, medical ethics demand that women considering abortion be informed about the evidence linking this elective surgical procedure to a life-threatening disease.

AIDS: The Greatest Mass Synthetic Weapon

Funded by Congress in 1969 Through House Bill 15090, the AIDS Virus was Created After 1974

By Luis R. Miranda
The Real Agenda
November 5, 2007

Proof that the AIDS virus is man-made and not naturally born, pile on as more information turns public and access to more and moreAIDS documents that reach more and more people become available. The account that the AIDS virus was originally found in a monkey, and that from it, the virus somehow jumped to humans has been debunked; to use a popular term.

The most eye-opening piece of evidence is government documents; more specifically the House of Representatives H.R 15090 from 1969 which details how and when the second branch of government held hearings and funded a project in which the Department of Defense would utilize $10 million to research and create a synthetic virus that would then be tested in humans in the form of an injection.

After ten years of investigation, the virus was created sometime after 1974 and was experimented with by injecting humans as early as 1977. Although in the US the Department of Defense requested the financing and promoted the creation of the virus, entities like the World Health Organization and the United Nations had previously called for a bio weapon of the sort. The World Health Organization (WHO), started to inject AIDS -laced smallpox vaccine into Africans in 1977, while the Center for Disease Control (CDC) injected some 2000 white males with laced Hepatitis B vaccine in 1978.

According to the Strecker Memorandum of 1983, AIDS is a man-made disease, which is not specific of homosexuals, not venereal and which can be carried by mosquitoes. In addition, it is clear that although condoms would help reduce the chances of infection, they would not prevent the at least six types of AIDS viruses available. Dr. Theodore Strecker writes: “The US National Cancer Institute in collaboration with the World Health Organization manufactured AIDS in a laboratory at Fort Detrich, Maryland.” The AIDS virus is a combination of two retroviruses. One is the Bovine Leukemia Virus, and the second the Visna Virus which were injected into human tissue in its early stages in order to see the results.

Dr. Strecker states that the AIDS virus could not be naturally born and that were virologists who worked in the creation of an organism that could exert selective influence in the way the human body fights infection. The possibility was looked into that the virus impaired the immune system so that it could not respond once it made its way into the human body. According to the Strecker memo, the AIDS epidemic was triggered by the mass vaccination campaign that intended to end Smallpox.

The following is an exact transcription of the narrative in the Subcommittee of Appropriations held in July 1, 1969, which involved discussions about Synthetic Biological Agents.

There are two things about the biological agent field I would like to mention. One is the possibility of technological surprise. Molecular biology is a field that is advancing very rapidly and many eminent biologists believe that within a period of 5 – 10 years it would be possible to produce a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired.”

Mr. Sikes: Are we doing any work in that field?

Dr. MacArthur: We are not.

Mr. Sikes: Why not? Lack of money or lack of interest?

Dr. MacArthur: Certainly not lack of interest.

Mr. Sikes: Would you provide for our record information on what would be required, what the advantages of such a program would be, the time and the cost involved?

Dr. MacArthur: We will be very happy to. The dramatic progress being made in the field of molecular biology led us to investigate the relevance of this field of science to biological warfare. A small group of experts considered this matter and provided the following observations:

1. All biological agents up to the present time are representatives of naturally occurring disease, and are thus known by scientists throughout the world. They are easily available to qualified scientists for research, either for offensive or defensive purposes.

2. Within the next 5 – 10 years, it would probably be possible to make a new infective microorganism which could differ in certain important aspects from any known disease-causing organisms. Most important of these is that it might be refractory to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease.

3. A research program to explore the feasibility to this could be completed in approximately 5 years at a cost of $10 million.

As it has been documented, the World Health Organization used the Smallpox vaccine to spread the virus in Africa, Haiti, Brazil and Japan. After looking for documents to support the statement, it is clear that the spread of the virus coincides with how this plan was originally laid out. As an addendum, a confidential source in the WHO has revealed that there is “a strong correlation between the proportion of people in different central African countries who consented to the smallpox vaccine program and the proportion of those now infected with AIDS.

In the last fifteen years, the AIDS virus has killed 11 million Africans, which accounts for a total of 80 percent of the total world deaths due to the virus. According to numbers provided by the United Nations, at least 5000 funerals are held daily in Africa for people who die as a consequence of contracting the AIDS virus. Outdated numbers from 2001 show that in Latin America there were some 1.4 million people infected with AIDS, while South and South East Asia combined accounted for 5.8 million people. These numbers are rounded up in the Caribbean, where at least 700,000 people had been infected as of 2000.

Scientists like Dr. Strecker, suggest that the fact that most of AIDS’s victims reside in Africa and Latin America is not a coincidence, as only 2 percent of the affected population resides in Europe. Apparently, the goal of creating a bioweapon such as the AIDS virus was to eliminate a great part of the Africans in an effort to reduce global population to just about 500 hundred million, down from some 7 billion. An example that helps reinforce this thesis is the Tuskegee Experiment. Conducted between 1932 and 1972, the Tuskegee Experiment, recruited some 400 black Americans in an effort to test the effects of syphilis in Macon County, Alabama. The United States Health Services never gave the subjects any clear information of what exactly would be put into their bodies, ans instead were drawn to the testing centers with promises that the injection would help them treat or cure problems like Anemia, or “bad blood”.

More recently, pharmaceutical companies like Merck have been found liable for the death of thousands of people as a consequence of taking drugs such as VIOX. In the latest battle of the people versus the pharmaceutical industry, groups of people around the world, but more specifically in Texas rose to denounce Merck’s intent to make a new vaccine -Gardasil- available to young women between the ages of 8 and 11 years old in order to -according to Merck- help prevent the Human Papiloma Virus or HPV. Parent groups denounced the measure taken by Texas governor Rick Perry who signed a document saying it was the law to take the vaccine. It would later be leaked to the public that Gardasil contains a live cancer virus something produced in a laboratory, which caused several dozen girls to bleed uncontrollably during the term the injections were taken and even after completing the multiple doses. Mothers of the girls appeared in national radio talk shows to testify of their experience and that of their daughters’.

According to Boyd E. Graves, who has studied the origins of the HIV virus for years, the history of the disease goes back at least 100 years. “The United States began a significant effort to investigate “causes” of epidemic diseases. In 1887, the effort was enhanced with the mandate of the U.S. “LABORATORY OF HYGIENE”. This lab was run by Dr. Joseph J. Kinyoun, a deep rooted-racist, who served the eugenics movement with dedication. In 1893, we strengthened the Federal Quarantine Act and suddenly there was an explosion of polio.” On his website, Graves continues with a chronological account of the way how an grand eugenics program grew from scratch. ” In 1945, we witnessed the greatest influx of foreign scientists in history into the U.S. biological program. Operation Paperclip will live in infamy as one of the darkest programs of a twisted parallel government fixated on genocide. In 1946, the United States Navy hired Dr. Earl Traub, a notorious racist biologist. A May appropriations hearing confirms the existence of a “secret” biological weapon. In 1948, we know that the United States confirmed the endorsement of “devising a scheme” in which to address the issue of overpopulation in certain racial groups. State Department’s George McKennan’s memo will forever illuminate the eugenics mendacity necessary for genocide of millions of innocent people.” Programs like the one orchestrated to exterminate much or all of the black population are true for other diseases such as Cancer, Polio, Influenza, and more recently Bird Flu.

Another piece of evidence that reinforces the fact that HIV AIDS as well as other diseases are man-made and not naturally born is the 1971 special virus flow chart, obtained by Graves in 1999. The chart was sent to him on May 15th, 2000 by Dr. Victoria Cargill of the National Institutes of Health. The chart shows how scientists proceeded when experimenting with new viruses. As I have seen it, it is a step by step guide to be followed and the way decisions are made according to the results obtained in every stage of the experiments. The chart indicates how to go through the process of selecting a candidate, how to proceed in order to determine whether a subject has experienced any immunological response to the virus (HIV), to confirming the effectiveness of controlled methods for introductions in critical trails.

It is estimated that if the HIV virus is not stopped within the next three decades, it will indeed achieve the objective it was meant for; it will completely eradicate the black population in Africa and other regions of the world. What is more incredible is that African governments consented in 1974 in Bucarest Romania to the use of the HIV virus on the population. According to Dr. Graves, there are at least 15,000 progress reports filed regarding the experiments with the HIV virus and the US government along with other European counterparts have spent $550 million dollars in the creation and spread of the HIV AIDS virus.
