Talk:National Cancer Institute on Abortion

What this article clearly shows (probably unintentionally) that the earlier a woman has an abortion (certainly by the end of the first trimester), the less chance she has of developing breast cancer. In short, the right-to-lifers, by trying to put delaying tactics in place, are increasing women's risk of getting breast cancer. 19:30, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

This article says: A report in July 2006 from the Institute of Medicine (an organization of the National Academies of Science) listed "prior first trimester abortion" as an "immutable medical risk factor" for premature birth. [7] However, a search of the link provided turns up only one use of the word 'immutable' in the book, and it is not in the phrase immutable medical risk. I presume the sentence to be a paraphrase. However, the paragraph that uses the word 'immutable' refers to 'multiple second trimester' abortions, which since nearly 90% of abortions take place in the first trimester is necessarily a limiting factor. Moreover the quote used in this article makes it unclear whether the abortions are induced or spontaneous, since the context is not given.--Britinme 14:49, 14 May 2007 (EDT)
