Abortions have far-reaching consequences around the globe

The pro-life billboard north of town has again been obliterated with black spray paint.


The pro-life billboard north of town has again been obliterated with black spray paint.

This is the third identical sign in the same rancher’s field to be vandalized.

The message, “Abortion Stops a Beating Heart” is as offensive to some in today’s matriarchal society as pointing out in the 1800’s southern states that the black man was a person.

New studies have shown the more pregnancies that are terminated, the higher a woman’s cancer risk becomes.

In China, where 336 million babies have been aborted, Chinese women are now experiencing an alarming rate of breast cancer.

The international cancer journal, “Cancer Causes and Control,” has reported a Chinese study from the Tianjiin Medical University Cancer Hospital which states one abortion raises the risk of breast cancer by 44 per cent, two abortions to 76 per cent and three to 89 per cent.

Researchers in India (Indian Journal of Community Medicine) found a six times greater risk of breast cancer among Indian women with a history of abortion.

People smoked tobacco for years and ridiculed anyone who suggested that cigarette smoking caused lung cancer.

Are we at that stage now in the discussion regarding abortion and breast cancer?

The mantra of the Women’s Liberation Movement is “Abortion on Demand,” no discussion.

Do you abort a baby if it is a girl and your culture values boys?

Do you abort one twin if you only planned on having one child, not two?

Do you abort your baby if it is a minor inconvenience?

In her memoir, Charlotte Dawson, a successful Australian model and TV personality, writes that she was coerced by her husband, an Olympic swimmer, to abort their child.

He didn’t want the inconvenience of her delivering their baby during the Summer Olympics.

She attributed her subsequent depression to this event.

She fell into alcohol abuse, a downward emotional spiral, which ended with her suicide in March.

When a woman goes for an abortion is she informed there may be unpleasant physical problems in years to come, maybe breast cancer?

The myth that abortion is a minor procedure similar to having a tooth pulled should be re-examined.

Abortion has far-reaching implications beyond “stopping a beating heart!”
