The chance of getting breast cancer in the overall US population is 12.5% over the course of a woman’s lifetime. Whether abortion increases the risk of breast cancer is something that is medically disputed. However the impact of abortion on cervical cancer is less so. Each year 7.5 women per 100,000 will contract cervical cancer.
Among women who have had one abortion that risk is 2.3 times higher than the risk in the general population. For those women 17.25 out of every 100,000 will get cervical cancer. Based on the fact that Planned Parenthood performed 300,000 abortions last year 45 women more per year will contract cervical cancer. Roughly a quarter of those women will not survive. Some studies suggest an 5 fold increase of cervical cancer among post abortive women which would mean an extra 90 cases per year. Roughly 20 of those cases will be fatal.
Do you think this information is given to Planned Parenthood’s often young and vulnerable clients? Beyond the immediate medical risks associated with abortion there are a host of long term life risks. I would think that this information should be widely distributed and given to clients seeking abortion services. Even if you believe it is a women’s right to chose, they need to know what they are choosing. It may well not be what they think.
For many the immediate convenience of not having to try and raise a child outweighs the effort to carry to term and either attempt to raise the child or have it adopted. The long term consequences to the physical and mental health of the client have long been ignored in this space. For many those consequences are far worse than having a child that they ultimately love and who loves them. For some the consequence is an early grave. There is tremendous research to support this.
For me I would do everything in my power to make abortion unnecessary and undesirable. Learn more at Sav-a-Life Shelby. Or sponsor me for the walk dedicated to changing women’s minds and helping them succeed in life.

Planned Parenthood has a program designed to promote ‘Sexual and Reproductive Health‘ among teenagers. Similar to previous programs designed to promote ‘Safe Sex’ with condom giveaways this program, called Teen Advocates For Sexual Health’ will result in more unwanted teen pregnancies and a further explosion of STDs. Of course, the more teen pregnancies there are, the more profit Planned Parenthood makes.
If the message to teens is that all sex is ok, you just have to be safe while participating sounds good to you, I would suggest examining both the audience and past results. The condom giveaway program with counseling created two additional unwanted pregnancies per 1000 women. 2014 was a bumper year for STDs. Clearly telling young as yet to mature people that casual sex is OK is not the best method of raising responsible kids. Whether or not kids choose to have sex in more committed arrangements and whether or not they do so safely is a function of maturity. There is no way 14 and 15 year olds have the maturity to make those decisions.
Still, that fact has not kept Planned Parenthood from promoting this is schools. The message that abstinence it a valid choice for young people is laughed at. Yet, abstinence is 100% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies and 100% effective at stopping the spread of STDs. Abstinence also allows kids to mature so they can make intelligent decisions.
The argument that they will do it anyway is a self full-fulfilling one. Providing the means, such as birth control pills or condoms tells young people that they should have sex no matter the consequence. The study above and the proliferation of STDs shows the consequence. Is Planned Parenthood willing to council all those with now life long afflictions that it was a good choice? Some of those STDs are HIV or viruses that cause cancer. That is the unintended consequence of this type of program.
At what point will society realize that most children are really not capable evaluating when it is safe to have sex and most children are not mature enough to take all the proper precautions. The data proves this and schools have no business allowing this type of program in their doors.
