Here is some information for your reference, from Priests for Life:
We likewise invite you to visit various sites which speak of the connection between abortion and breast cancer http://www.abortionbreastcancer.com/ , including that of Dr. Joel Brind http://www.abortioncancer.com/ . Also, read about the potential legal liability of abortion providers who do not inform women about the prospect of increased risk for breast cancer following an induced abortion: www.johnkindley.com.

Much of the health concern today for women who have had an abortion centers on the increased risk of developing breast cancer.
Although no one is saying abortion causes breast cancer, the statistics reflect a trend that cannot be ignored.
Since the legalization of abortion in 1973 (and the subsequent increase in abortions), the incidence of breast cancer in women has increased by more than 40 percent, and according to recent data released by the American Cancer Society, this cancer now ranks as a leading cause of death in African American women.
Similarly, information obtained from the Johns Hopkins Breast Center medical research website (February 2003), states that African American women under age 35 are disproportionately affected by breast cancer. This echoes the findings in a study from 10 years prior by Howard University, which also found African American women at increased odds for the disease if they had a history of induced abortions.
Could there be a connection between the incidence of abortion and the development of this disease?
Though many will argue the validity of this claim, medical / research groups such as the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, The Breast Cancer Prevention Institute, the National Physicians Center for Family Resources and others substantiate the claim as medically sound and documented by in-depth research results.
When abortion on demand was legalized in 1973, the general opinion was that abortion would serve as a harmless and effective means for a woman to control her rights to reproduction, and women have been encouraged to use this alternative when faced with the challenges of an unwanted pregnancy.
New information obtained from the post-abortive studies tell us, to the contrary, that this is in fact a harmful and extremely costly alternative when we consider the psychological and physical risks involved with receiving an induced abortion. As these studies reveal, abortion is not only a matter of life or death for the unborn child, but quite possibly also for the mother. And the numbers, as they continue to multiply ever so quietly, sounds the alarm of a holocaust in Black America.
And we’re not talking about it?
Laing et al, “Breast cancer risk factors in African-American women: the Howard University tumor registry experience,” Journal of the National Medical Association 85:931, 12/9
A highly significant 1993 Howard University study showed that African American women over age 50 were 4.7 times more likely to get breast cancer if they had had any abortions compared to women who had not had any abortions.
