Rolling Stone recently published a list of The Seven Most Common Lies About Abortion.

The list is mostly a collection of straw man parodies of pro-life talking points rebutted with cherry-picked pro-choice statistics.

And it wouldn’t be worth a second of anyone’s time if it wasn’t being passed around social media like wildfire and garnering thousands of comments on Rolling Stone’s site. But it is, so let’s debunk the debunking point by point!

1. “Abortion Causes Breast Cancer.”

In the Wake of the Komen / Planned Parenthood Debacle

Posted by Eric Scheidler (February 6, 2012 at 5:07 pm)

Scott Stantis cartoon from the Chicago TribuneHaving grown up in the pro-life movement, I know better than to take anything the mainstream media says at face value, especially when it comes to abortion. As kids, my siblings and I used to get a kick out of how badly the press would butcher the spelling of our family name—let alone the details of pickets and protests we attended.

So when I saw Friday’s Associated Press headline declaring “Komen drops plan to cut Planned Parenthood grants,” I knew I had to see for myself what Komen was really saying. Not surprisingly, the reality is rather far from what that AP and other news outlets were reporting. [Continue reading …]

Komen Still Referring Women to Planned Parenthood

Posted by John Jansen (May 17, 2011 at 12:07 pm)

komenOn March 30, an investigation by Live Action revealed that contrary to claims made by Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, the nation’s largest abortion chain does not, in fact, perform mammograms.

And yet, several weeks later, Susan G. Komen for the Cure — the King Kong of breast cancer awareness organizations — is still referring mammogram-seeking women to PP.

Komen Statement Admits PP Does Not Provide Mammograms

After Live Action’s investigation was released, pro-lifers began contacting Komen to ask them why they’re continuing to give money to the nation’s largest abortion chain. In response, Komen issued this statement [PDF] on its website, which begins thusly: [Continue reading …]

New Study: Don’t Abort During Breast Cancer Treatment

Posted by Eric Scheidler (October 12, 2010 at 11:19 am)

Pink RibbonA new study reported on last week by the Christian Post confirms what pro-life physicians have been saying for years: that there is no valid medical reason for a doctor to recommend abortion to women undergoing breast cancer treatment.

In the past, doctors have recommended that pregnant women diagnosed with breast cancer have abortions in order to be able to undergo treatment like chemotherapy immediately, without risking harm to the fetus. Of course, abortion does quite a bit more well-known harm to a fetus than the theorized harm of the mother’s cancer treatment.

And according to the new study, we now know that that harm is insignificant; women can undergo treatment without harm to the unborn child.

Reporter Stephanie Samuel interviewed me for the article, and I’m pleased to say that she quoted me several times in it, especially on the anti-life bias behind the notion that abortion should ever be considered a component of authentic health care.

Help Highlight the ABC Link

avon1The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer will be coming to Chicago on June 5 and 6. While I believe the cause is a good one, they are going about it all wrong and they’re hurting their efforts to eliminate the disease.

The Problem

Avon hopes to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer, but ignores a major cause of breast cancer: abortion.

Not only do they not warn people of the risk, but Avon has joined with UNIFEM to promote “women’s issues.” This phrase, like “women’s health” or “reproductive rights,” has become a code word for the promotion of a universal right to abortion. (I was reminded of this when I heard how UNIFEM planned to help Haiti after the earthquake.) [Continue reading …]
