Karen Malec

A lot of people are probably unaware of the work of this champion (deceased) of open access to information. Specifically, it was information—or the lack of information—about the abortion/breast cancer link (ABC) that activated Karen Malec to challenge certain medical and governmental authorities about their withholding of scientific evidence.

At least as early as the 1990s, it was known that increased access to abortion was related to the rise in breast cancers and that hormonal birth control can cause cancer. But the information has, over the years, been denied to the public.

The birth control pill is a Group One Carcinogen as listed by the International Agency on Research of Cancer (IARC), an arm of the United Nations. As for the “ABC” link, now even research papers from Asia reveal the  link but at the same time they minimize the seriousness of the problem: millions of Asian women procure abortions and a breast cancer epidemic is raging.

Not only was Karen a victim of colon cancer as a young mother, she later succumbed to ovarian cancer and died this past May.
