Tobacco companies and government colluded to introduce cigarettes to servicemen by including them in military rations. From World War I through Vietnam, tens and perhaps hundreds of thousands of American boys & men, who may have never picked up a cigarette, suddenly had plenty of them free.
The practice even continued for 11 years after the surgeon general issued his famous warning in 1964. Then, allegedly reacting to the financial costs of cigarette disease, particularly for smokers on the government health dole, the federal government launched an unprecedented assault on Big Tobacco. Plaintiffs dying of cigarette diseases filed lawsuits, with some winning huge jury awards.
The parallel collusion between the government and the abortion industry is instructive. The captive population is not just the military, it’s the entire school system and the media-dominated culture, sealed by the U.S. Supreme Court declaration that an immoral procedure is a Constitutional right required by an enlightened society.
The evidence of the collusion is the information missing on the websites of the mainstream cancer industries. The National Cancer Institute egregiously ignores decades of work by their own researchers (and the admission of the abortion-breast cancer link by 8 medical groups) that one abortion generally raises a woman’s breast cancer by 40%.
The NCI’s contemptible deceit allowed the recent mischief of the Kansas health department, which brazenly replaced the legislated mild abortion-breast cancer warning with a factually indefensible statement. The government may be immune from lawsuits, but abortionists are not.
Two lawsuits in this nation and three in Australia– where abortionists failed to warn of the abortion breast cancer link –have been settled at mediation. However, those women now must deal with a life-time elevated risk, while abortion clinics and their supporters continue to publicly claim that pro-lifers have invented the link.
Particularly in October, the nation is awash in the pink ribbons of the Susan G. Komen foundation. Though SGK professes a noble mission, “to save lives and end breast cancer forever,” they refuse to educate women about the abortion-breast cancer link, while funding the United States’ largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, to the tune of $7.5 million last year.
Will SGK, as well as Planned Parenthood, face class action lawsuits for lying to women? It may take decades, but those who deceived women and helped the abortion profiteers cannot hide forever from their victims.
