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.".

Does an abortion clinic in the state of md have the right to deny a 21 year old from abortion of 12 weeks?
Twelve weeks is right at the end of the first trimester. I believe that is the cut off point for elective abortion. The 21 year old decided on abortion too late, the clinic is right to deny the abortion, legally and ethically. By the way, unless abortions is all the clinic does it is not...
