Psalm 30:11-12 “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.”


“Women cry…and women die…” Why aren’t women being told of the most preventable cause of breast cancer?


God’s mail was being delivered as a small remnant took to the streets of St. Louis , Missouri under the famous Gateway to the West Arch where a sea of pink was envisioned. The annual Susan Komen Race for the Cure - Breast Cancer event was underway. We were equipped with a good sized banner reading “Abortion is a cause of breast cancer” and the website for more information www.AbortionBreastCancer.com, abortion/breast cancer link brochures by researcher and Dr. Joel Brind, and pro-life flyers which pointed out the statistics and information on the largest abortion provider in the St. Louis, Metro-East area. The infamous “Hope Clinic” only ten minutes across the Mississippi River where no parental consent is needed and Hope Clinic specializes in late-term abortion, where to its credit over 366,000 mother-child relationships have been severed in the past 31 years and reign of terror in the womb.

As the crowd of over 60,000 breast cancer victims, survivors, and supporters marched down the streets, we advantageously placed ourselves in the moving crowd handing out the information. You couldn’t help but notice the desperation on their faces and feel compassion for these sisters who were valiantly fighting this giant called breast cancer. The sad part was realizing that approximately 41,875 women died in the year 2004 of breast cancer, and vital information that surfaced in the early 1980’s was deliberately being withheld from women by the American Cancer Institute. Breast Cancer was unheard of in the 1930’s. What has been introduced to society that now has breast cancer at epidemic proportions?  Elective abortion, and the numbers are soaring and victims are becoming younger and younger and a lot with no history of breast cancer in their families. What hypocrisy it was to see the Planned Parenthood people with their flaming pink shirts claming to be all about women, the very same people who are giving women consequential bad “choices” that cause breast cancer..ABORTION on demand and the N.O.W group marching hand in hand. They tore our fliers up, and they yelled for other women to do the same, which fell on deaf ears. Women were gladly taking the flyers and information till we ran out. We passed out over 1350 flyers and over 100 brochures and spoke with some of the participants who were interested in our mission to let women know the truth of this link. “We’re here to help women make good choices and to give them more than one,” said Angela. “Women are responsible for their health care, shouldn’t they be made aware of the risks and the most preventable cause of breast cancer? Why aren’t women being told the truth?”

          With 1.5 million abortions being performed in America every year, women have to know the truth so that they may make good decisions. 10% of women with breast cancer can be accounted for by their past abortions, and they don’t even know it. They’re not being told of the possible risks and complications or being given informed consent when they enter these death camps.

          As Shelley explained to three wonderful and caring women sponsored by McCarthy Bros. with their pink construction hats on, “Our daughters are our future and it is up to us who care, to know to share the hard truth to those who do not.”

          We had so many coming back and asking questions and young girls standing and sitting in groups all nestled down into the reading of what we had to share. One lady offered to come over and stand with us at the abortion mill in Granite City . We were very well received. Before we left for Hope Clinic, we marched down Broadway with the banner which received a few jeers.

          Breast cancer is the leading cancer in women. Not having an abortion is the most preventable cause of the disease. Many of the risk factors can be controlled by the choices women make. Choosing between abortion or childbirth influences breast cancer risk. Why is the abortion industry and the media doing a complete blackout on the truth behind the elective /abortion breast cancer link? When the abortion clinic says it’s a woman’s rights, without informing them with all the truth, it should be rephrased, if you have an elective abortion, you could be receiving “last rites." Women shouldn’t have to cry,...and don’t have to die.

“Abortion is not the most common cause of breast cancer, but because it is matter of choice, it is an avoidable risk.” ~Dr. Joel Brind


Philippians 3:13-14 “Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called  me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
