As many people likely already know, The Toronto Star reported yesterday that Belinda Stronach has breast cancer. Christians, of course, because we believe that every single person (from conception to natural death) has human dignity and worth are to will the good for everyone. We are also required to pray for our opponents, as Our Lord taught.
So, whether we are social conservatives or liberals, we are all joined to one another by our common humanity. I want to reiterate again my sincerest hope that Belinda pulls through this. My thoughts and my prayers will be with her and her children in the coming days and weeks.
Tragic as Belinda’s situation is, her condition not only affects her but millions of women across the world. As such, if it is germaine to talk about breast cancer, then it is also germaine to talk about the root causes of it.
Two root causes of breast cancer are abortion and oral contraceptives. Those are the facts.
Those facts are hard for the Left to deal with. They completely dismiss it, despite the substantial wealth of journal approved research on the subject. Here is the latest one, published in the renowned Mayo Clinic Proceedings Journal.
“A Meta-analysis, the article finds an increased risk for breast cancer of 44 percent, in pre-menopausal women who took or were taking oral contraceptives prior to their first pregnancy, compared to women who had not used oral contraceptives.”

Is breast cancer caused by oral contraceptives and abortion only? No, but the scientific literature indicates that they are often strong, contributing factors.
Obviously we do not know why Belinda Stronach got breast cancer. But the sad truth of the matter is that many women today are on the pill. It does us no good to cover our eyes and plug our ears to the evidence that our own behaviour might be a contributing factor to our own sicknesses. This is not politically correct since we have been conditioned to think that our sexual choices have no consequences to us or anyone else. But it is certainly scientifically correct. And in the world of nature, political correctness doesn’t count.
I ask you, honestly, just how realistic it is for women to think that pumping high levels of estrogen into their bodies will have no health consequences? Is that a realistic assumption? Really?
Women deserve to know the truth. It is a human right to have this information readily available and presented to them BEFORE they make their choices. They need to know the risks. Let’s face it. Women need to face the realization that ultimately they will bear direct the health burden of oral contraception and abortion.
Women are being used by men for sexual pleasure, and they are being told that oral contraceptives or abortion is the insurance policy in the event of an unwanted pregnancy. What kind of deal is that when this insurance policy is a sham?
You know, we always hear the legitimate argument that women are the ones who bear the costs of an unwanted pregnancy. This is true. No argument there.
But is it not also true that women bear the costs of abortion and chemical contraceptives too?
There’s losers on both sides of the coin. So, in the future, I say to our opponents: please drop the koolaid jingles about an unwanted pregnancy being the worst thing possible. A dead baby, breast cancer, and the rest of the consequent fall-out sure comes in a close second.
Let women know the truth.
