Regional cancer center expert, Carmen Ligia-Pisc, is either lying or uninformed about abortion-breast cancer link
, says Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer /Expert challenged to debate risk
An expert from the Regional Cancer Center (Erie, Pennsylvania), Dr. Carmen Ligia-Pisc, is either lying or uninformed about 53 years of research supporting an abortion-breast cancer (ABC) link, says the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. The group challenged her to a debate.
Ligia-Pisc told Jeremy Beecher from WJET that childbearing reduces breast cancer risk, but then contradicted herself by concluding, "...there is no correlation between the abortion and the risk of breast cancer."
"If childbearing reduces risk, then the woman who has a baby has a lower risk than the one who has an abortion," said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition. "Even an expert witness for the abortion industry admitted that during testimony in a Florida lawsuit in 1999.
"A Turkish study in 2009 said most studies report risk increases for women who have abortions.  Most have only compared the risk of having an abortion with the risk of not having had that pregnancy, instead of comparing the effect of having an abortion with the effect of having a full term pregnancy. By only considering the former (the independent link between abortion and breast cancer) and by not counting the latter - the risk-reducing effect of childbearing - it's easier for researchers to underestimate the risk and conceal the link from women."
"We challenge Ligia-Pisc to a debate. We've challenged five others, including Susan G. Komen for the Cure, but they've all ducked our call for a normal scientific debate.
