Karen Malec, President of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. Biography of Karen Malec: Karen Malec has been the president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer since 1999. She authored an article for the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, "The Abortion-Breast Cancer Link: How Politics Trumped Science and Informed Consent," which was published in the summer 2003 issue. At the 60th Meeting of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons on September 19, 2003, she delivered a speech concerning the government's cover-up of the abortion-breast cancer link. Her speech was entitled, "Perversion of Science by Politics: Case Study - Informed Consent." She authored, organized and developed most of the coalition''s Web site,, while relying on the advice of two medical advisers: an endocrinologist, Professor Joel Brind, Ph.D., author of the only quantitative and comprehensive review and meta-analysis of the abortion-breast cancer research; and an internist, Chris Kahlenborn, M.D., author of the book, Breast Cancer: Its Link to Abortion and the Birth Control Pill. The Web site has been described by Dr. Brind, as, "THE clearinghouse for up-to-date information on scientific, medical, political and legal fronts." She has given lectures on the abortion-breast cancer research at U.S. and European conferences and has given countless interviews to newspaper and magazine journalists and radio talk show hosts. She has testified twice before the Illinois Senate Executive Committee in support of task force to investigate abortion-breast cancer link - a measure which was bitterly opposed by the National Organization for Women, the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, and abortion supporters in the Illinois legislature. In June 2001, she attended the United Nations Conference on the Rights of the Child as an accredited journalist for Salem Radio Network. While at the United Nations conference, she participated in a panel discussion of the abortion-breast cancer link with Dr. Brind and Australian attorney, Charles Francis. Mr. Francis won the world's first known settlements of two medical malpractice lawsuits filed against abortion providers who did not inform their patients about the increased risk of breast cancer. Mrs. Malec writes press releases for the coalition and news articles for Abortion-Breast Cancer News Headlines, a newsletter published by the coalition. She has authored many articles about the abortion-breast cancer link for Republicans for a Fair Media's internet wire service, RFM News; Illinois Leader; and other internet news outlets. Mrs. Malec spent eight years teaching in public schools. She is a thirteen year survivor of colon cancer. Contact: Website:




Susan G. Komen Has Two Moral Problems

Evidence supporting a link between the pill and breast cancer dates from at least 1975 when Fasal and Paffenbarger reported that users of the pill for 2-4 years significantly increased their breast cancer risk by 1.9 times. If they were still using the pill when they entered the study, the 2-4 year users' risk elevation climbed to 2.5-fold.

Huffington Post Attacks the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer challenges the Huffington Post's experts to conduct a normal, public debate the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link with our experts. If the newspaper can successfully demonstrate that abortion does not raise risk, then the Huffington Post's editors can relish an opportunity to make us look foolish in a public debate, instead of relying on irrational writers, like Lara Hoffman, who can't get their facts straight.

Scientific Review of 72 Epidemiological Studies, Biological Evidence Supports Abortion-Breast Cancer Link

A scientific review conducted by Angela Lanfranchi, MD and Patrick Fagan, Ph.D. found that support for an abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link exists in current knowledge of breast physiology (as it is presented in standard medical texts), as well as epidemiological and experimental research. The review, published in Issues in Law and Medicine, is entitled, "Breast cancer and induced abortion: A comprehensive review of breast development and pathophysiology, the epidemiologic literature, and proposal for creation of databanks to elucidate all breast cancer risk factors."

Planned Parenthood's Cancer War on Women Continues 40 Years After U.S. Supreme Court Made Induced Abortion Legally Accessible Throughout Pregnancy

Planned Parenthood reported in its 2008 tax returns that its purpose is "[a]chieving, through informed individual choice, a U.S. population of stable size in an optimum environment; in stimulating and sponsoring relevant biomedical, socio-economic, and demographic research." In other words, its purpose is to assist the U.S. government in achieving its population control objectives. Its last two annual reports show it received over a billion dollars in taxpayer money between June 2010 and June 2012.

ObamaCare Mandate Represent War on Women's Health

With its mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services requiring insurers to provide women with free health-damaging hormonal steroids, but not free life-saving chemotherapy, ObamaCare represents not only an attack on the rights to religious freedom and conscience, but also a grave attack on women's health.

Breast Cancer Rates Reach Nearly 275,000 Cases / Deaths Increase

The cancer fundraising industry expects 5,170 more breast cancer cases and 560 more deaths than last year. The total number of anticipated cases for 2006 is 274,900 cases (invasive and in-situ). Breast cancer deaths are expected to reach 40,970 cases. Little has been done to promote cancer prevention, although the most effective way to reduce risk is to have more children, starting before age 24 and breastfeed longer.

Women's Group Accuses Lancet, Oxford Scientists of Misrepresenting Abortion-Breast Cancer Research

Valerie Beral and a mere handful of colleagues falsely claimed to have conducted a collaborative reanalysis of data from 53 studies. Twenty-nine studies report risk elevations, but Beral inaccurately told reporters their paper shows abortion doesn't adversely impact risk.

Abortion and Breast Cancer: Only fuzzy math can make the ABC link disappear

It is undisputed -- even by Beral herself -- that a full-term pregnancy lowers a woman's long term risk of breast cancer, and that this protection is not afforded by a pregnancy that ends in induced abortion. Yet Beral and most of mainstream science and medicine would refuse to say that abortion is therefore a risk factor. Everyone knows -- including Beral - that a woman who chooses abortion will end up with a higher long term risk of breast cancer than would result from the childbirth choice. Still, unethical and outrageous as it is, it is politically incorrect to inform women seeking abortion of this undeniable truth. (Joel Brind, Ph.D.)

How National Cancer Institute Scientists Betrayed Women

Even though the workshop's alleged purpose, according to NCI Director Andrew Von Eschenbach, was to formally evaluate and discuss the medical literature, the agency's scientists thumbed their noses at women and orchestrated a radically different scenario. Only one viewpoint was presented - that there is no association between abortion and the disease.

Women's Group Applauds British MPs' Abortion-Cancer Probe / Criticizes Dr. Stuart Donnan's Hyposcrisy

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer welcomes the efforts of British MP Claire Curtis-Thomas and her colleagues who asked doctors to examine women's reproductive histories and the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link within their patient populations. The coalition condemns the efforts of Manchester University Professor Stuart Donnan to disabuse women of the truth that abortion raises breast cancer risk. Donnan misled the BBC by saying "some studies" reported risk elevations, but others show abortion reduces risk.

What if I have had an abortion?

Women need to be told about Natural Family Planning methods, none of which increase cancer risk. Women must be informed of practices that reduce breast cancer risk such as long-term breastfeeding, bearing a child at a young age, and bearing more than one child. The use of Vitamin A may be of benefit, though this should be avoided by women who could become pregnant as it may (rarely) cause birth defects.
