I read an article this past weekend about some kind of connection between 1st trimester abortions and breast cancer. Is this true? Has anyone heard of something similar to this? The article in whole was talking about a certain group of people who were for extreme population control. It was very interesting but I don't know how much to believe of it.

There is no association between abortion and breast cancer.
Yes,sites to read: http://www.etters.net/cancerTP.htm, http://www.abortionbreastcancer.com/ as usual the US drags its feet when it comes to women's issues many of the research was done in Britain who are usually head of the game they don't have this gender specific problem. In the US anything that might contradict which is someone's "right" might upset them and cause anger, etc, etc, so they take the safe path and say they dont' have enough data.
There's a lot of controversy about this issue, but this web site does a good job of sorting it out -- http://www.religioustolerance.org/abo_canc.htm In a nutshell, what they say is that it boils down to which kind of study you're doing. There are pro-life advocates who are looking at individual case-studies, where people asked one group of women with breast cancer if they'd ever had abortions, and another group of women without breast cancer if they'd ever had abortions. More women in the breast cancer group said "yes." But -- people with breast cancer are more likely to be truthful about their complete medical history, because they're so used to giving out medical information all the time, while women without breast cancer may be more likely to cover it up because they're embarrassed or they believe that information is private. So while those are surveys that would report "more women with breast cancer say they've had abortions", you can't go by those results, becuase they're not as accurate. There are more accurate kinds of studies, where you pull a whole bunch of doctors' records from a given area and count up how many women had abortions, how many had breast cancer, and comparing who had both. That's a more clinical study of data, and that kind of study shows NO link between abortions and breast cancer. The ONE study of that latter sort that has found ANY kind of link was a study done in Denmark in 1997, that examined the records of every last woman in Denmark -- that was about a million women, and was the biggest such study. They found a very slight increase in risk for women who had had a LATE-TERM abortion, but because the number of women who had had a late-term abortion was itself so low, it's actually a little controversial whether there actually WAS a link or it was just a quirk in the data.
