Myth-Busting Monday: Does abortion cause breast cancer?

Every Monday EFC busts myths and take names, cutting through the misinformation, disinformation, and straight up nonsense to bring you the facts.

The myth that abortion causes breast cancer is widespread in the United States, where anti-abortion groups have made an effort to publicise it. Based on questions Education For Choice gets from young people and professionals, the myth has gained some traction here in the UK. But the alleged link is just that: a myth. Leading cancer charities Cancer Research UK and Breakthrough Breast Cancer have both issued statements clarifying that there is no evidence for a link.
