The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer notes an editorial by Editor Ed Furton, MA, Ph.D. in the December issue of a bioethics journal, Ethics and Medics.  Furton charged that a widely reported "review" of the abortion-breast cancer (ABC) studies published in the Lancet was seriously flawed for having omitted 15 studies reporting risk elevations "for no good reasons" and using an "inappropriate control group."
The Lancet reported a statistically significant 11% risk elevation among retrospective studies and a significant 7% risk decrease among prospective studies. 
accused the Lancet of allowing its pages to be "used as a political platform," and setting aside "objective standards of scientific research.
accused the Lancet of "picking conclusions ahead of time, and arranging the evidence to support them.
chastised scientists for failing to "speak out against the shoddy research that is being advanced by those who deny" the link because they fear ostracism and the loss of grants.
Furton's editorial follows a November article by Associate Professor of Surgery Angela Lanfranchi, MD, FACS who identified the Lancet's flaws.  Furton's and Lanfranchi's articles are published at .
