What studies have been done which have confirmed a breast cancer and abortion link?


You won't find any studies which establish a link. A link between abortion and breast cancer is a myth- junk science and propaganda from the anti-choice movement, which has has sought unsuccessfully to prove that there’s a link. For example, ‘The Breast Cancer Epidemic’, a study conducted by the London based Pension and Population Research Institute takes data from 8 European countries and purports to establish that there are 7 risk factors, of which abortion is the most reliable predictor of breast cancer. The study is seriously flawed, for example it finds an increase in abortion and breast cancer in some countries, but offers no data to suggest this is among the same women (ie there was in increase in both, but no evidence that the women who’d had abortions were the same women who developed breast cancer). And the study was funded by the anti-choice group, Life. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1... http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/facts...


There's one main study, in rats, but it was flawed and disproved. You're not going to find it in any professional or respected journal beyond the first time, because it was so flawed. You wouldn't even have heard of it at all except that some want it to be true and so keep repeating the same disproved findings. But in any event, here it is: Russo J, Russo I (1980). "Susceptibility of the mammary gland to carcinogenesis. II. Pregnancy interruption as a risk factor in tumor incidence". Am J Pathol 100 (2): 505–506. PMID 6773421. "In contrast, abortion is associated with increased risk of carcinomas of the breast. The explanation for these epidemiologic findings is not known, but the parallelism between the DMBA-induced rat mammary carcinoma model and the human situation is striking. [...] Abortion would interrupt this process, leaving in the gland undifferentiated structures like those observed in the rat mammary gland, which could render the gland again susceptible to carcinogenesis.".

Can I have an abortion without parental consent?
Massachusetts requires consent of one parent--but like all states with parental consent laws, there is "judicial bypass". This means that you can go before a judge to explain why you don't want to get the consent of a parent. You can find out more about the process at http://www.plannedparenthood...

Should i be worried about this? still bleeding 3 weeks after abortion?
NO!! That isn't normal at all. You need to be checked out A.S.A.P. After (almost) 4 weeks your body should be well on the mend. Perhaps a little bit of spotting, but not bleeding to the amount you describe. The vomiting and fatigue is probably related to your excessive bleeding. Are there clots...

In countries where abortion is legal, women have the right to abort based on the gender of their child?
I think abortion is about individual rights. The law has to attempt to determine whether a fetus is an individual person whose rights should be protected or if it is part of a woman's body that she has domain over just like the rest of her body. Sometimes they recognize rights of a fetus...
