The Dangerous Masquerade of the Feminist Majority Foundation

The Dangerous Masquerade of the Feminist Majority Foundation

MEDIA ADVISORY, Nov. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- "The Feminist Majority Foundation claims to be 'dedicated to women's equality, reproductive health and non-violence,'" said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, "but actions speak louder than words. Eleanor Smeal, the group's president, and her colleagues do not care if women die of breast cancer or have premature births because of their abortions.

"If Smeal et al. had the slightest concern for women's health, they would never have initiated a despicable attack on crisis pregnancy centers that serve pregnant mothers, in part, by warning them about the grave health risks associated with abortion.

"Telling women the truth about the abortion-breast cancer link is as bad for business as telling consumers about the risks of smoking. Whether it's Big Abortion or Big Tobacco, making money is more important to them than protecting consumer health.

"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. If, as standard medical texts say, delaying a first full term pregnancy, childlessness, little or no breastfeeding and small family size put women at much greater risk for the disease, then the young woman who has an abortion has a greater risk than does the one who has a baby. The woman who aborts forfeits the protective effect of childbearing.

"Get a conscience," Malec said to Smeal, "and stop playing politics with women's health."

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer is an international women's organization founded to protect the health and save the lives of women by educating and providing information on abortion as a risk factor for breast cancer.
