New Documentary Seeks Truth about Abortion's Effect on Women

 A new film has been released which seeks to explore the truth about the effects abortion has on the health of women.
The documentary, which is called “Hush,” was the brainchild of director Punam Kumar Gill, who identifies as pro-choice, producer Drew Martin, who identifies as pro-life, and producer Joses Martin who says he is “neutral” on the issue.
Although Gill is pro-choice, she says she is really “pro-information.” Her quest to seek the truth about how abortion affects women began when she realized that information on the consequences of abortion is not readily available, and opinions varied widely.
The abortion industry denies that there are any negative effects for women, either psychologically or physically, but others assert that there can be numerous side effects, including depression, infertility, pre-term birth, and breast cancer.
In the film, Gill seeks to get to the truth behind all these claims.
Hollywood North Magazine positively reviewed the film, stating, “How to get at the truth? It’s difficult for Ms. Gill — and this is a difficult film to watch, though also one of the most worth watching.”
The filmmakers say that they tried their best to set aside their own agenda and opinions and simply seek the truth of how abortion affects women.
“Nobody wanted to talk to us because they assumed the worst,” Martin said. “Even with individuals who are not particularly related to (abortion issues), like cancer organizations, what do they have to do with abortions, in general? But when it comes to a political topic like this… there’s a lot of defensiveness that we didn’t even expect.”
The film has aired at several festivals as well as at several universities, but the filmmakers are hoping to bring it to an even broader audience.
To watch the film's trailor, see below.

New Pro-Life Film “Hush” Tells the Truth About How Abortion Hurts Women

A new documentary by a pro-abortion and pro-life filmmaker team is gaining attention for trying to honestly tackle the issue of abortion risks to women.

The film “HUSH” investigates whether women are being told the truth about abortion and its potential health risks. The abortion industry regularly denies evidence that there is a link between abortion and breast cancer, infertility, preterm birth, depression and other health problems. They fight state informed consent laws that require abortion facilities to inform women of these potential risks, claiming that they are not true.

Canadian filmmaker Punam Kumar Gill, who identifies as pro-choice, said she wanted to find out the truth about abortion risks and whether they are real, as pro-lifers say, or overblown, as abortion activists claim.

Hollywood North Magazine recently reviewed the documentary:

    Although Ms. Gill accepts society’s view of abortion as  a woman’s right and is put off by the “self-righteous” tone of the pro-life side, she begins to wonder if women have access to all the information they need when making the choice.

    She starts out watching media reports on the issue that consist of heated arguments and undisguised mockery. From there, she attempts to gather facts from scientific organizations and finds most of them unwilling even to talk to her — at one point, we see a security guard escorting her out of the National Cancer Institute. A doctor tells her flatly that there are no long-term consequences to abortion. Ordinary people on the street want to know what side she’s on before giving their opinions. How to get at the truth? It’s difficult for Ms. Gill — and this is a difficult film to watch, though also one of the most worth watching.

    The quest has a personal note as she’s learned her own late-term miscarriage may have affected her risk of breast cancer.

According to the media outlet, the people involved in producing the film have different views about abortion: Gill is the director and calls herself pro-choice, but executive producer Drew Martin says he is pro-life, and producer Joses Martin describes himself as “neutral.”

Martin said the filmmakers worked hard to set aside their opinions about abortion itself and focus on finding out accurate information about the potential long-term health effects of abortion on women.

The filmmakers told The Catholic Register that they faced a lot of roadblocks because many groups just did not want to talk about such a controversial issue.

“Nobody wanted to talk to us because they assumed the worst,” Martin said. “Even with individuals who are not particularly related to (abortion issues), like cancer organizations, what do they have to do with abortions, in general? But when it comes to a political topic like this… there’s a lot of defensiveness that we didn’t even expect.”

The filmmakers did manage to talk to several doctors, including renowned researchers Joel Brind, Angela Lanfranchi and Priscilla Coleman, whose research has shown a link between abortion and an increased risk of breast cancer. In an article at LifeNews in March, Brind reported a shocking new study that found a 58-percent to 108-percent increased risk of breast cancer for women who have abortions.

The “HUSH” filmmakers also talked to several women who had physical and psychological complications after their abortions. One is Tasha Deschambault who had two abortions when she was 19.

She told more of her story to the Catholic news outlet:

    “Personally, I have met a lot of post-abortive women and I have not met one that has not had medical repercussions as a result of their abortion,” said Tasha Deschambault.

    “When I watched the film, it was when I realized that my son’s health issues were a direct result of my previous abortions and I had no idea,” she said.

    “That’s a part of the reason why I really got behind the film because I thought other women should know, when they’re making their decision, what they’re actually choosing.”

    Deschambault said she wasn’t given any information about the risks involved with an abortion. She was told it would take a couple of days to recover and life will go back to normal. But for her, life was never normal again.

The film began appearing in festivals last fall, and went on tour at several university campuses this spring in Canada. The filmmakers hope to see “HUSH” widely released in the fall of 2016.

In 1986, government scientists wrote a letter to the British journal Lancet and acknowledged that abortion is a cause of breast cancer.  They wrote, "Induced abortion before first term pregnancy increases the risk of breast cancer."  (Lancet, 2/22/86, p. 436)

As of 2006, eight medical organizations recognize that abortion raises a woman's risk for breast cancer, independently of the risk of delaying the birth of a first child (a secondary effect that all experts already acknowledge).  An additional medical organization, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued a statement in 2003 calling on doctors to inform patients about a "highly plausible" relationship between abortion and breast cancer.  General counsel for that medical group wrote an article for its journal warning doctors that three women (two Americans, one Australian) successfully sued their abortion providers for neglecting to disclose the risks of breast cancer and emotional harm, although none of the women had developed the disease.

Medical Groups Recognizing Link

to increased breast cancer risk is clearly not good for cancer fundraising
businesses, the abortion industry and the pharmaceutical industry. Medical
groups whose doctors do not perform abortions or refer women for abortions
will be among the first to recognize that abortion raises a woman's breast
cancer risk.

Statement Concerning the Link between Induced Abortion and Breast Cancer, R. L. Walley. FRCSC., FRCOG., MPH Executive Director and Honourary Research Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

"MaterCare International an international group of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists was presented with the evidence of the link between abortion and breast cancer at its international conference in Rome in October 2004 by Dr Joel Brind's research group.  The medical explanation and the epidemiological evidence convinced our  group that there is a significant increase in breast cancer risk after induced abortion, especially before the first full term pregnancy.  This evidence has been denied by the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other researchers.  Recently ten studies have been published in an attempt to discredit Brind's conclusion.

"In turn Brind has examined these ten studies and in a peer reviewed paper published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Vol 10, No 4, Winter 2005, <http://www.jpands.org>) he  has shown that they have serious methodological weaknesses and flaws and therefore do not invalidate the conclusion that there is a increased risk of breast cancer.

"Women have a basic right to know of this increased risk of breast cancer and it is unacceptable that the information should be denied to them by the medical and cancer research  establishments. MaterCare International as an organisation of women's health specialists  recognies its responsibilities in this matter and will do all it can to publish this evidence."

"The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons believes that patients have the right to give or withhold fully informed consent before undergoing medical treatment. This includes notification of potential adverse effects. While there is a difference of medical opinion concerning the abortion breast cancer link, there is a considerable volume of evidence supporting this link, which is, moreover, highly plausible. We believe that a reasonable person would want to be informed of the existence of this evidence before making her decision."

Bombshell Study Finds 44% Increased Breast Cancer Risk for Women Having Abortions

A new systematic review and meta-analysis of abortion and breast cancer (ABC link) in China was just published four days ago in the prestigious, peer-reviewed international cancer journal, Cancer Causes and Control.

In this meta-analysis (a study of studies, in which results from many studies are pooled), Dr. Yubei Huang et al. reported that, combining all 36 studies on the ABC link in China that have been published through 2012, the overall risk of developing breast cancer among women who had at least one induced abortion was significantly increased by 44%.

These results, said the authors, “were consistent with a previously published systematic review”. That review was the one I published in the British Medical Association’s epidemiology journal with colleagues from Penn State Medical Center in 1996, which study reported an overall significant 30% increased risk of breast cancer in worldwide studies.
Since the our study came out in 1996, the “mainstream” abortion advocates entrenched in universities, medical societies, breast cancer charities, journals, and especially, government agencies like the National Cancer Institute (In reality, the NCI is just another corrupt federal agency like the IRS and the NSA) have relentlessly targeted the ABC link with fraudulent studies and other attacks, culminating in a 2003 international phony “workshop” by the NCI, which officially declared the ABC link non-existent.
Since 2003, armed with this new official “truth”, NARAL and their ilk have viciously been attacking pro-life pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) for “lying” to women by telling them about the ABC link as a reality. In places like Maryland and New York City, they even went so far as to enact laws to muzzle the PRCs. Thankfully, the courts have struck down such laws as violations of free speech rights–so far.
But the new Chinese meta-analysis is a real game changer. Not only does it validate the earlier findings from 1996, but its findings are even stronger, for several reasons:
1. The link is a slightly stronger one, i.e., 44% v. 30% risk increase with abortion;
2. It shows what is called a “dose effect”, i.e., two abortions increase the risk more than one abortion (76% risk increase with two or more abortions), and three abortions increase the risk even more (89% risk increase with three or more abortions). Risk factors that show such a dose effect have more credibility in terms of actually causing the disease.
3. Huang et al. state: “The lack of a social stigma associated with induced abortion in China may limit the amount of underreporting”. Putative underreporting of abortions by healthy women has been routinely invoked to discredit the ABC link–the lack of credible evidence notwithstanding. This line of attack—variously called the “response bias” or “recall bias” or “reporting bias” argument, has now been neutralized.
4. Huang et al. explain why two earlier high-profile studies in Shanghai did not find the link, essentially by citing and extending arguments I had articulated in the British Journal of Cancer in 2004. In that published letter, I explained that the Shanghai population was unsuitable for studying the ABC link in the usual manner, because the prevalence of induced abortion was so high (greater than 50%) in the general population. Huang et al. provided strong evidence for that explanation, by performing what is called a meta-regression analysis of all the Chinese studies, which meta-regression showed that the more prevalent abortion was in the study population, the lower risk increase associated with abortion.
5. The Huang study follows right on the heels of two new studies this year from India and Bangladesh, studies which reported breast cancer risk increases of unprecedented magnitude: over 600% and over 2,000%, respectively, among women who had any induced abortions.

Finally, the new Chinese meta-analysis follows on the heels of the recent decisions of the US 10th Circuit Court of Appeals which upheld the religious freedom rights of companies wanting to opt out of Obamacare, since Obamacare insurance funds contraceptive steroids and abortions. The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer and the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute filed amicus curiae briefs for these cases, briefs which were specifically cited in the 10th Circuit’s decision with respect to the cancer-causing effects of these steroid drugs (innocuously referred to as “the pill”, in common parlance). At least two of these cases have just been accepted by the US Supreme Court for review in their next session.

Women who had an abortion are 626% more likely to have breast cancer: Indian study

January 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Women who have had an abortion are 6.26 times more likely to develop breast cancer than women who have no such history, a new study in India has found.
A report published in the current issue of the Indian Journal of Cancer suggests that abortion makes the breast's muscle tissue (epithelium) more likely to act as a cancer-producing agent. “It has been suggested that abortions leave the breast epithelium in a proliferative state with an increased susceptibility to carcinogenesis,” it says.
Perhaps more unnerving, that was not the greatest cancer risk facing women.
Women who consume oral contraceptive pills have a 9.5 times higher rate of breast cancer than women who do not use the drugs, researchers said.
"We found long-term use of oral contraceptive pills (OCP) higher among those suffering from breast cancer compared to healthy individuals," said lead researcher Dr. Umesh Kapil of the department of gastroenterology and human nutrition at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi.
In the report, Dr. Kapil explained that cancer is a hormonally mediated disease and that breast cancer is caused by repeated exposure of breast cells to circulating ovarian hormones.
He said long-term use of OCPs, which contain estrogen and progesterone, may be increasing the risk of breast cancer by causing a hormonal imbalance. His research suggests a strong relationship between use of oral contraceptive pills and the disease.
The study also looked into the association of other reproductive factors that affect the prevalence of breast cancer, and found that early onset of menstruation, higher age at marriage, higher age at first and last child birth, lower duration of breastfeeding, higher number of abortions, history of oral contraceptive pill use, and a family history of breast cancer are all associated with a significant increase in breast cancer occurrence.
The researchers found that mean age at first menstruation in cancer patients was about 13 years, as compared to about 14.5 years in the healthy controls. They observed that this difference was statistically significant.
The report noted that first pregnancy "induces irreversible changes that either render the breast tissue itself less susceptible to induction of cancer or reduced the carcinogenic stimulus to the breast."
The researchers found that women who had an age of marriage more than 20 years old had an almost three times higher risk of breast cancer, while the age at first childbirth was found to be associated with a twofold higher risk in women who had their first child after the age of 21.
Age at last childbirth of more than 27 years resulted in a 329 percent higher incidence of breast cancer.
"Lactation also has a direct physical effect on the breast, such as changes in breast ductal epithelial cells leading to mechanical 'flushing-out' of carcinogens," the researchers said.

The study found that the risk of breast cancer increased 14.9 times in women having mean duration of breastfeeding of less than 13 months. The average duration of breastfeeding in cancer cases was about 11 months, while in controls it was about 21 months.
The study was a hospital-based survey conducted in the tertiary care hospital in New Delhi. Three hundred and twenty newly diagnosed breast cancer cases in the AIIMS departments of Surgery/Surgical Oncology were matched with an equal number of healthy individuals, which constituted the control group.
The average age of the women was 45.5 years. A majority of the participants lived in urban areas. All the women were married, and the majority of both groups were housewives. About 46 percent of the cases and 36 percent of the controls belonged to lower-middle socioeconomic status.
The AIIMS research team concluded that, "the results of the present study reveal a strong association of reproductive factors with breast cancer in the Indian population."
The full text of the AIIMS study titled "Reproductive factors and breast cancer: A case-control study in tertiary care hospital of North India" is available here.
