Chris Smith at the March for Life, and more…

Congressman Chris Smith’s rally speech on Friday afternoon packed a punch, as usual. Smith and his wife, Marie, have been champions of human rights for many years. (Marie heads up the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues, which provides pro-life news, information, and networking to members of democratically-elected legislatures around the world.)

Here he takes on the claim that abortion is “safe”:

Safe? Certainly not for the 52 million babies who have been dismembered or chemically poisoned or starved to death since 1973.  And certainly not for women, who have been hurt physically and psychologically…

Safe for women?  At least 102 studies show significant psychological harm, major depression and even higher incidences of suicide in women who abort. This has been covered up.

Safe for women? At least 28 studiesb — including three in 2009 — show that an abortion increases the risk of breast cancer by some 30-40 percent or more, yet the abortion industry has largely succeeded here as well in suppressing those facts.

Nevertheless, according to the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, 2009 was a pivotal year in the debate about the abortion breast cancer link.  Three studies were published from Turkey, China and the United States which matter-of-factly demonstrate the abortion breast cancer link as one of many breast cancer risk factors.

A friend in Chicago sent me one of three recent commercials produced by the Coalition on Abortion and Breast Cancer. As Smith notes above, there’s now an abundance of evidence showing that abortion increases one’s chances of getting breast cancer.
