Darlin's ya'll been on mah mind--I tell you, I've been so busy I just cain't seem to hardly find time for bloggin'. Where are mah priorities, huh?
You'd jes' never believe who I've had for company this week, slipped in the back porch door (see photo) nope, you'd never credit it. Durn near kept me busy night and day, no time for bloggin'.
I have unfinished bidness with Bird but the rest of you are welcome to horn in here and speak your piece. On the touchy topic of abortion--but this here post ain't about right nor wrong of it, but about health issues. Ya'' know that about 170,000 cases of breast cancer pop up each year--it's a worry, I tell you.
Ole' Aunty Belle here gets her feathers ruffled when folks is talkin 'bout "choice" but the poor lady doan know what all it is she's a choosin', so here is some information that adds to the "choice."
First, we have to keep in mind that abortion is a bidness and part of an ideology and so it is protected in a manner of speaking--that is, its drawbacks are downplayed or covered up for ideological or commercial reasons. When social or political careers and such are at risk, the truth can be the casualty-this is how you get'cha self some dueling reports, some off-settin studies, keepin' yore neck on a swivel.
British Medical Association’s Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health studied evidence of the breast cancer-induced abortion link going back to 1957. The stats indicate a 30% increased risk when a woman has had an induced abortion. Shortly afterwards, in the New England Journal of Mediicine Dr. Mads Melbye ( Demark) published another report claiming no such link was verified.
By 1997 thirty studies had been done worldwide, an' twenty-four of em showed there's increased breast cancer risk. One of the most famous yes-it-does-no-it-don't tussles starred the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (ya'll KNOWS that public heatlth officials strongly favor abortion) Here's how the tog-o-war began: November 1994, Dr. Janet Daling at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle reported some astounding findings --50 percent increased risk of breast cancer with elective abortion (not same thang as a miscarriage),
Well, mah pets, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute printed her study but stuck in its own op-ed that poked fun at Dr. Daling’s findings. So of course ladies magazines (Elle) and groups ran lots o' denials from gubmint "experts. "
But sweet chillins', accordin' to Dr. Joel Brind (http://www.abortioncancer.com/)
when a lady concieves her hormones is in overdrive-- estrogen increases mor'n a hundred times normal when she conceives. Naturally, the first physical change to the newly pregnant lady is in her breasts. Hormones jes' go haywire, leading to the growth of "undifferentiated" cells in the breast so her body can begin to make milk for littlle ones. Now the problem is that those unifferentiated cells is a weak cell--very tender and vulnerable to cancer causing agents.
But if her pregnancy is not interrupted, those cells go on to be "terminally differentiated" so she can nurse the baby, but these differentiated cells ain't so tender or vulnerable to cancer culprits. So you can see, that iffin her pregnancy is abruptly terminated she is left with all those undifferentiated cells jes' waitin to become cancerous.
A' course, Planned Parenthood and others drag out "reporting bias" as the explanation for the reported ABC (Abortion Breast Cancer) link.
Well, they's a whole bunch more I could throw out there, but anyone who wants to investigate can find stacks of data on the subject.
Aunty Belle is anxious that your dear darlin' girls get the information you need a'fore you make a decision like this.
Lawdy, youn'uns, this ole' back is biting me an' I gots to git to myself to baid-- now it is late. But ya'll stay and jaw iffin' you like. You knows where the Jack Black is kept. Jes' slip on out the back porch door when you leave, and turn off the light for me sweet pets.
