Informed Consent: Breast Cancer Surgeon Has Written ‘the seminal article on abortion and breast cancer’*  

Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, MD, spent four years researching and writing an article that was published in the Spring 2014 Issues in Law & Medicine, a peer reviewed journal. In between taking care of her patients Dr. Lanfranchi collaborated with Dr. Patrick Fagan, PhD, who provided the statistical analyses of the epidemiological literature from 1957 through 2013. This “ABC Link” paper (showing the link between abortion and breast cancer) can be downloaded for free from the Breast Cancer Prevention Institute website(

It is to be hoped that many, many women will learn of their risks for breast cancer and find physicians who will be able to give them the information they need to lower their risks. This information will help protect women through informed consent.
