I can't believe the anti-choicers are still on the "abortion causes breast cancer" kick.

"Susan G. Komen for the Cure is no friend of women," said Karen Malec, president of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. "Komen perpetuates the breast cancer epidemic by withholding the truth that abortion increases breast cancer risk. We have three challenges for Komen.

Leaving aside that there are legitimate criticisms to be made of SGK4Cure (and let's genuinely leave that aside in this thread, please), among them is not that SGK4Cure "perpetuates the breast cancer epidemic." And possibly the reason SGK4Cure will "duck the debate" is because

there is no debate
