Seattle Times Denies Abortion - Breast Cancer, Depression Link

In an article that does nothing more than repeat the usual pro-abortion falsehoods and misinformation, the Seattle Times proves once again they have no interest in reporting the truth about abortion. (It is just me or does this article read more like a thinly disguised editorial in support of Jim McDermott's (D-WA) reelection and co-sponsorhip of Waxman's anti-CPC bill than good research and reporting?)

Whatever the case, After Abortion has the best analysis and background information on this latest outrage. They also have a great sample letter with references to the specific studies showing abortion's harmful effects.

You can write or email the Seattle Times at: opinion@seattletimes.com and Diane Albert, Letters Editor.

You may want to mention that at least one abortionist in Washington believes that Post-Abortion Syndrome exits since they reported it as a complication to the Department of Health in 2002. (MS Excel doc; see Table 8D; "1 PAS")

You could also mention that the author of the quote below and one of the major researchers into the ABC link, Dr. Janet Daling with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, lives in Seattle. They could talk to her without even the expense of a long-distance call or thinking about the time-zone.

If politics gets involved in science, it will really hold back the progress we make. I have three sisters with breast cancer, and I resent people messing with the scientific data to further their own agenda, be they pro-choice or pro-life. I would have loved to have found no association between breast cancer and abortion, but our research is rock solid, and our data is accurate. It's not a matter of believing. It's a matter of what is.
