When we think about abortion, we often immediately think about the millions of babies

who have lost their lives since 1973. While this should sadden us, it is important to remember that their is another victim that sometimes gets overlooked. Abortion hurts women in devastating ways.
Many women who have abortions experience regret, depression and other psychological side effects. This is a tragedy because they are often unaware of the aftermath of abortion. When they go into an abortion facility they are sometimes told that their baby is only "a mass of tissue" or that abortion is a safe procedure. However, abortion leaves countless women hurting for years.
Another potential side effect of abortion that is covered up by the abortion industry is that abortion is linked to breast cancer. According to a recent Bangladesh study published in the Journal of Dhaka Medical College, women with abortion histories are twenty times more likely to develop breast cancer.
Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, from the Coalition on Abortion and Breast Cancer, is one
of the leading experts on this subject and will be one of our keynote speakers at our Louisiana Needs Peace Conference. She is a breast surgeon and travels internationally, speaking about the negative impact of abortion on women.
In addition, there will be a special "Abortion Hurts Women's Health" panel led by Wendy Vitter. It is crucial that as pro-life citizens we are not only educated on these issues, but that we have compassion for all people impacted by abortion.
