Comment of the Day: Get Pregnant or Die

Illustration for article titled Comment of the Day: Get Pregnant or Die

New Hampshire is trying to tell women they're giving themselves cancer by having abortions, but wouldn't you know it, their "logic" falls apart if you even so much as glance at it, and vulcanized was brave enough to do just that:

I don't understand. I follow the claim that pregnancy reduces the risk of breast cancer, but why would abortion increase it? Abortion is not the opposite of pregnancy. Not being pregnant is. How am I, who has never been pregnant, different from a woman who has had an abortion? Aren't we the same? Or if it's true that estrogen released during pregnancy is good for the breasts, wouldn't the woman who had an abortion be a little better off than me since at she had at least some of that estrogen? This makes it sound like I am practically killing myself by not putting a baby in my tummy pocket.
