Several US states have made it mandatory for women going through an abortion to sign a form that explains that abortions increase the risk of breast cancer. Several recent studies have suggested that there is no such link and there is an outcry about the misinformation that these women are receiving. However, pro-life campaigners bring claim that childbirth does decrease breast cancer risk and by having an abortion they remove their chances of reducing this risk. No conclusive research has firmly established any link between abortion and breast cancer or miscarriages.
