*#ihatecancer…and I know you do too! I seriously doubt if there is a person among us who isn’t, hasn’t or won’t know someone, lose someone or be someone affected by this terrible, terrible dis-ease. But the more we know about it, the better we can fight it, right?   According to new statistics, a study now determines that Breast cancer in Black women may stem from an escalated number of abortions. Two decades ago these women were behind Caucasian women in their likelihood of being diagnosed with the disease, today the numbers are reversed, with Black women leading at a percentage of 70%.

Last year, a study by Public Health England and Cancer Research UK also revealed that Black Women were more likely to develop cancer in its late stages positing that study findings showed 22 percent of black Caribbean females and 25 percent of black African women had 3rd and 4th stage breast cancer. This is comparison to 13-percent of British white women.

Cancer is said to be the leading cause of death in the U. S. today for people between the ages of 45-64. Yet we all know that many people much younger have been stricken with the disease; which is said to cause normal body cells to multiply rapidly, many times invading nearby organs. 

According to a Sandrarose.com article, Brent Rooney, a researcher, claims breast cancer’s rise in black women coincides with the rising rate of abortions since the 1970’s.

In an interview with Lifesite News, Rooney states that it was the landmark Roe vs Wade abortion ruling by the Supreme Court in 1973 that appears to link to the sudden surge in abortions among black women. 

Rooney refers to a study in 1983 which found that “each one-year delay in the first full-term pregnancy (FFTP) boosts breast cancer risk by 3.5 percent compounded”.

Rooney states that a woman who never gives birth stands “a 41 percent higher risk [of developing breast cancer] if the [full-term pregnancy] is delayed 10 years and a 68 percent higher risk with a 15-year delay.”

According to Sandrarose.com the researcher claims the mammary gland tissues of women who never give birth or those who terminate their pregnancies early are underdeveloped and become less effective as time goes on; leaving these women at a greater risk for cancer.
