Abortion/Breast Cancer Link

My mom just sent this e-mail out and Jill Stanek posted it on her website.

As I walked into Jewel today, I was approached by a women soliciting donations for the Avon Breast Cancer Walk. I took a brochure and when leaving spoke to her about how this company, along with the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, denies the link between abortion and breast cancer. In addition to that, Komen gives monies directly to Planned Parenthood. I explained in a simple way, how abortion causes breast cancer: When a women has her monthly cycle, her breasts fill with a cancer causing toxin (estrogen). When she becomes pregnant, her cycle stops for the 9-month period. That in itself has always been an indisputable key factor to lowering breast cancer. The earlier a woman completes a full-term pregnancy, the better, and the more children, the better. Breastfeeding also helps stave off breast cancer.
But in addition, when a pregnancy is suddenly aborted, breasts that were preparing to nourish a baby are left with more undifferentiated, i.e., cancer-vulnerable cells, than before she was pregnant. The fact is, abortion can increase a woman's risk factor up to 260%!

As I was explaining this to the ill-informed volunteer, a woman and a man separately walked up with donations. I started explaining the ABC risk to them when the Avon rep rudely told me to leave. The man kept his money and walked out with me and thanked me!I realized I should complain to the store manager, so I did. The lady at the counter thanked me for the info and called the manager. I told them if the Avon campaigner was not removed, I was going home to get my 6-ft. picture of an aborted baby and coming back!Well, the manager said, he didn't think that was necessary. Still, I left for my sign, but when I got back to the store, the Avon rep was gone, praise God!
