    News Flash: Indian study links CP risk to Abortions

                                                           [CP = Cerebral Palsy]

                     Brent Rooney (fullterm40@gmail.com )


      It has been an accepted medical fact for over 60 years that

premature babies (gestation less than 37.0 weeks) have elevated

CP (Cerebral Palsy) risk AND the more preterm the birth the

higher the CP risk. Those babies born between 28 & 32.0 weeks'

gestation have 55 times the Cerebral Palsy risk as full-term

newborn babies (those under 28 weeks' gestation have 129

times the CP risk as 'full-termers'). [1, Himpens] In a 2015 study

Indian researcher Dr. Srinivasa Rao Tatavarti & colleague found

strong evidence that IAs (Induced Abortions) raise future risk of

newborns later being diagnosed with CP.[2, Tatavarti] A key

study that Dr. Tatavarti cited is a 2013 Canadian study by three

McGill University researchers.[3, Hardy] Dr. Ghislain Hardy

and McGill U. colleagues found that the lower the prematurity

of a baby that higher risk due to prior abortions. Those Quebec

women with prior abortions have over twice the risk of delivering

newborns babies under 28 weeks' gestation as Quebec women

with zero prior IAs (exact med jargon for this degree of risk:

Odds Ratio = 2.17 (95% CI 1.41-3.36)).


'Lone Voice in the Wilderness'?


      Perhaps, some may speculate that Dr. Tatavarti is the proverbial

'Lone Voice in the Wilderness'.


      In 2014 Egyptian researchers reported that Egyptian women

with prior abortions have 2.45 times the risk of delivering future

newborn babies later diagnosed with CP.[4, El-Tallawy]


Induced abortions actually raises a woman's risk of preterm

delivery?


      Before February 2009 there had never been a published 'study

of studies' (med jargon: Systematic Review & Meta-Analysis

(SRMA) for the abortion-preemie irsk. In 2009 two (2) SRMAs

were published with both clearly confirming 'Abortion-Preemie'

risk. [5, Shah; 6, Swingle] Using data from 36 prior studies Dr.

Prakesh Shah (U. Toronto) found that 1 prior induced abortion

multiplied premature delivery risk by 1.36, whereas more that one

prior abortion nearly doubles preterm risk (Odds Ratio = 1.93).


      There are a grand total of zero systematic reviews finding that

prior abortions do not raise prematurity risk. The science is settled. No abortion consent form lists prior induced abortions as even a plausible future raised CP risk factor for a newborn.


      In 2007 Dr. Byron Calhoun & colleagues estimated that in the

year 2002 there were 1,096 newborn babies under 1,500 grams

(3 lbs. 5 ozs) with Cerebral Palsy due to their mothers prior

abortions.[7, Calhoun] That October 2007 study has never in 91

months been challenged via a letter to the editor.


      In the year 2001 there appeared the first revelation in a

medical journal that prior induced abortions were a credible risk

for future newborn babies with Cerebral Palsy.[8, Rooney]

     India NUKES Abortion-Breast-Cancer Denial Easily & Forcefully

                                    Brent Rooney ( fullterm40@gmail.com )


      Compared to the United States, Australia, & England, INDIA

is an ideal country to convincingly answer whether induced

abortions raise a woman's lifetime breast cancer risk. Why? The

prevalence of important breast cancer risks that are common in

Western countries are much less prevalent in India, namely:

      FIRST pregnancies at an advanced maternal age

     Oral contraceptive pill use

     Very little or no breastfeeding

     HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)

     ZERO full-term pregnancies in a woman's life (or just one)

Thus, ABC (Abortion-Breast-Cancer) studies in India will provide

breast cancer researchers with much more confidence in the ABC

risk numbers they calculate than in the numbers using data from

the U.S., Australia & England.


      How many years will we have to wait to see the results of

such 21st century INDIAN ABC studies? Answer: zero years,

zero months, & zero weeks; i.e. there are already at least 9 Indian

ABC studies; here is the 'tale of the tape' for 9 INDIAN studies

(listed in the Reference section):


First Author         year               Odds Ratio        95% CI or p value


Rai                      2008                    2.21                     p < 0.05

Kaur                    2011                   2.79                      p < 0.001

Lodha                  2011                   1.91                      p = 0.214 (not significant.)

Santhy                 2012                   1.22                      not significant

Balasubrahmanian 2013                2.08                      1.15 - 3.75

Bhadoria             2013                   6.26                      4.16 - 9.41

Kamath               2013                   5.75                      1.27 - 25.99

Roy                     2014                 10.66                      p < 0.0001

Takalkar             2014                    2.8                       1.82 - 5.12

.._____________________________________________________...

                                                                       Ave. 3.96

Three (3) more countries from the Indian subcontinent:


De Silva ( Sri Lanka)   2010        3.42                      1.75 - 6.66

Raza (Pakistan)             2011       6.80                       p < 0.05

Jabeen (Bangladesh)     2013     20.62                      significant, data not shown

.._____________________________________________________...

                                                                  Ave. 10.28


Note that all 12 studies have an Odds Ratio exceeding 1.0 (i.e.

INCREASED risk) and ten (10) achieved statistical significance.

For the nine (9) INDIAN ABC studies the average number is

quadruple (exactly 3.96) the breast cancer risk for Indian women

due to prior induced abortions compared to women with zero prior

induced abortions; for the other 3 countries the average number

is 10.28 times the risk (Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh). Risk

numbers like four (4) times the risk will be very difficult to explain

away by abortion-safety supporters. Some will no longer comment

about ABC risk.

Maybe the Abortion-Breast-Cancer risk only applies to the Indian

subcontinent


      No way, Jose! The November 2013 Dr. Yubei Huang 'Study of

Studies', using data from 36 prior studies in CHINA, found that one

or more prior IAs (Induced Abortions) multiplies breast cancer risk by

1.44, but two or more IAs multiply B.C. risk by 1.76; 'Huang' URL:

Bottom Line:

      India NUKES Abortion-Breast-Cancer Denial Easily, Forcefully, &

Gloriously

Open Letter to Honourable Minister of Health Fred Horne (Alberta,

                Canada),


      Since excellent reproductive health for Alberta women is a top

priority of yours, you would be outraged, if the most common

elective surgery performed in Alberta has zero published [nonhuman]

animal studies to validate its safety. If you ask ministry doctors

for a hard copy of a published animal vacuum aspiration (aka 'suction')

abortion study, they will not comply. Why? No such animal study

exists. This was demonstrated in a peer-reviewed study in Dec. 2008

by Brent Rooney ( MSc ), Dr. Byron Calhoun, & Lisa Roche

(J.D.); http://www.jpands.org/vol13no4/rooney.pdf. [1, Rooney]

Alberta women are not informed about this violation of the 1947

Nuremberg Code on consent forms, nor are they informed that in

2009 it became SETTLED SCIENCE that prior surgical abortions

raise risk of a future preterm delivery.[2, Swingle; 3, Shah]


      Premature newborn babies ( under 37 weeks' gestation ) have

elevated risk of MACE (Mental retardation, Autism, Cerebral Palsy,

Epilepsy ) disorders, plus higher odds of deafness, blindness,

respiratory distress, gastrointestinal injury, and serious infections.

As you know, the category of study that is best able to resolve a

medical controversy is a SYSTEMATIC REVIEW and META-

ANALYSIS (SRMA ).[4, Fletcher] For the preterm birth risk of

prior surgical abortions (including 'suction' abortion) there are two

( 2 ) SRMAs, the February 2009 Dr. Hanes Swingle SRMA & the

October 2009 Dr. Prakesh Shah (U. Toronto) SRMA; Dr. Shah's

study appeared in the British Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.

[2, Swingle; 3, Shah] If your staff can find SRMAs that clear

induced abortion (IA) of raising preterm birth risk, please inform

us of any such SRMA before 1 October 2013. There is not 1 chance

in 100 that such a SRMA exists; if such a SRMA study exists, Dr.

Ward Murdock (SOGC President) can easily find it via search engines.


      Those newborns delivered between 28 & 31 weeks' gestation

(very preterm) have 55 times the CP (Cerebral Palsy) risk as full-

term newborn.[5, Himpens]. A February 2013 study by 3 McGill

University researchers found that Quebec women with one prior

IA multiply their very preterm delivery risk by 1.45 (45% higher

relative odds ).[6, Hardy; http://www.jogc.com/abstracts/full/201302_Obstetrics_5.pdf ]

The prestigious Institute of Medicine lists “Prior first trimester

induced abortion” as one of 14 “Immutable

                                                                                                                                                       Page 2 of 3

Medical Risk Factors Associated with Preterm Birth”. [7,

Behrman] Please note that for the Kensington [abortion] Clinic

(Calgary) its web-page section “Risks of Surgical Abortion”

makes zero mention of increased future premature birth risk:

http://www.kensingtonclinic.com/services.php?service=surgical.

By ignoring SETTLED SCIENCE Alberta abortion clinics put

future newborn babies at raised risk of later being diagnosed with

Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Mental Retardation, blindness etc.


      Honourable Minister of Health Fred Horne, let us give young

Alberta women better odds of full-term healthy newborn babies

by providing them with improved informed medical consent,

a right assured to them by Canadian law.[8, Picard] As of August

2013 there are over 140 statistically significant studies reporting

the women with prior IAs have elevated risk of a future preterm

delivery or a low birth weight (under 2,500 grams) newborn baby;

URL: http://justiceforkids.webs.com/chapter4140studies.htm .


      Brent Rooney (MSc) is a medical researcher whose main focus

is preterm birth risk factors. If your ministry wants to consult the

three McGill U. authors of the 2013 study, their email addresses

are as follows: Dr. Ghislain Hardy <ghislainhardy@hotmail.com>

this letter (a copy of the full 'Hardy' study is enclosed)). [6, Hardy])

 

     Proper INFORMED MEDICAL CONSENT ( IMC ) will

protect Alberta women's reproductive health & IMC consistently

enjoys over 75% approval in public opinion polls.

Appendix: Copy of the abstract-results section of the February 2013

                            'Hardy' study (The subjects were women in Quebec)


Results: A total of 17 916 women were included in the study. Of these

      2276 (13%) had undergone one prior induced abortion, and 862

      ( 5% ) had undergone two or more induced abortions. Women with

      a prior induced abortion were more likely to be smokers and to

      consume alcohol, and were less likely to be married. Women who

      reported one prior induced abortion were more likely to have

      premature births by 32, 28, and 26 weeks; adjusted odds ratios

                                                                                                                                                     Page 3 of 3

      were 1.45 ( 95% CI 1.11 to 1.90 ), 1.71 (95% CI 1.21 to 2.42),

      and 2.17 ( 95% CI 1.41 to 3.35 ), respectively. This association

      was stronger for women with two or more previous induced

      abortions. Prior induced abortion was associated with an increased

      requirement for tocolysis in subsequent pregnancies, but there was

      no association between prior induced abortions and NICU admission,

      intrapartum fever, and preterm premature rupture of membranes.”

'Mengele Medicine' Cripples and Kills Israeli Newborn Babies
(Brent Rooney (MSc), fullterm40@gmail.com)

Premature newborn babies face higher risk of 'MACE' (Mental retardation,
Autism, Cerebral palsy, Epilepsy) disorders, plus higher odds of blindness, deafness, respiratory distress,  gastrointestinal injury, & serious infections.
It would be monstrously tragic if women were subjected to higher 'preemie' 
( gestation under 37 weeks ) risk via  elective (i.e. unnecessary) surgeries. Before  February 2009 there had never been a  Systematic Review ( SR )
of the abortion-preemie risk.  In 2009  2 ab-preemie  SRs  were  published
with both of them confirming higher  preterm birth risk for women with prior Induced Abortions (IAs). [1, Swingle; 2, Shah] 'Shah' also found  that  prior
IAs elevated risk of  Low-Birth-Weight (LBW; under 1,500 grams) newborn
babies. Thus, in 2009 the  ab-preemie  and  ab-LBW  risk  became settled
science.  Most  'preemies' are  also  Low-Birth-Weight  (under 5 lbs 8 ozs).
Both of the 2009 SRs also reported more than one prior  induced abortion
carried  higher premature birth risk than did exactly one prior IA. However,
one  might  speculate  that  women of  certain  racial or  ethnic groups are
exempt from the ab-preemie risk and ab-LBW risk.

Specifically, is it possible that prior  induced abortions do not boost risk of
LBW or preterm birth of  Israeli women?  If  zero  studies of ab-LBW or ab- -preemie risk using Israeli women as subjects reported elevated risk, then
one would could reasonably believe that Israeli women might be  'exempt'.
To  Brent Rooney's  knowledge there are  3 significant  published studies
that address ab-LBW risk for Israeli women; all 3 of these studies confirm higher  LBW  risk  for  women with prior abortions. [3, Harlap; 4, Slater; 5, Seidman]  Susan Harlap ( PhD ) was  lead  author of  the  1975 American Journal of  Epidemiology study [3] & a co-author of the 1981 'Slater' study
[4] & the 1988 'Seidman' [5] study. In 1988 Daniel Seidman et al. reported about Israeli women that:               In general, the risk for low birth weight increased  with  increasing  number  of  previous  induced abortions in all
parity groups...”.[5, Seidman] This trait is what  medical researchers refer
to as “dose-response”  (i.e. increasing dose of a risk factor equals higher
risk); when dose-response is found,  that provides the researchers higher confidence that the purported risk is an actual risk. 
 
Both the 1981 'Slater' study and  the 1988  'Seidman' study also  reported higher risk of bleeding during  pregnancy for  Israeli women with  prior IAs.
'Gardner' in her 2009 'study of studies' ( i.e. using data  from multiple prior studies )  reported that  bleeding  during  pregnancy  boosted  a  newborn baby's risk of later being diagnosed with Autism by 81%.[6, Gardner]  The  incidence of  Autism is  increasing in  Israel; why prior  induced abortion is
a  credible  Autism risk factor is found at:
http://justiceforkids.webs.com/7abortionautismaxis.htm .


Can not Israeli women be  confident that a very common abortion elective surgery  such as  vacuum  aspiration  ( aka 'suction' )  abortion  has  been safety validated via well conducted medical studies? No M.D. in Israel ( or
any other country) can cite even one  published ANIMAL study of 'suction' abortion; URL:      http://www.jpands.org/vol13no4/rooney.pdf.[7. Rooney]
This means that every 'suction' abortion ever carried out in Israel  ( or any other  country )  violates  principle 3  of  the 1947  Nuremberg Code. Nazi doctors, such  as  'Dr.'  Josef  Mengele, in  the 1930s and 1940s routinely bypassed animal testing & went to directly testing new medical treatments
on humans.

How Many Israeli Children Have Birth Defects due to the Ab-Preemie Risk?

First, let's consider the ab-preemie damage to  newborn babies in the U.S.
In 2007 a study by Dr. Byron Calhoun &  colleagues  estimated that in the
year 2002 there were 1,096 newborn babies under 1,500 grams ( 3 lbs. 5
ozs.) with  CP (Cerebral Palsy) due to their  mothers' prior IAs; ( that 2007 study has never been  challenged via a 'letter to the editor). But that's just
one year, just one birth defect (CP), &  excludes babies over 1,500 grams birthweight. Dr. Calhoun et al. also estimated that there were about 4,094 excess deaths in the first year of life of very premature babies (under 32.0 weeks' gestation ) due to their  mothers' prior  induced abortions; thus, for
just the year 2002 there were, at an  absolute  minimum,  5,190 crippled & dead babies due to womens' prior IAs.  Brent Rooney estimates that since 1973  (when the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision was rendered) that
at minimum 129 thousand wanted  U.S. newborn babies had  serious birth defects or died in their first year of life due to their  mother's  prior induced abortions. Israel's population is roughly 1/45 of the U.S.  population. Israel
will be lucky if fewer than  2,800 babies have been badly birth defected or
died in the  first year of life due to  womens'  prior  induced abortions. The greatest harm to women from  abortion is  elevated  risk of  breast  cancer inflicted on them,but that is another story well explored at these 2 websites:

http://www.bcpinstitute.org

http://www.abortionbreastcancer.com

 

? Recent studies invalidate the Ab-LBW risk ?

Susan Harlap (PhD) with  colleagues in 2007 reviewed the evidence from Jerusalem, Israel and on page 7 of that 18 page study did not  retract one
bit from the results of  prior studies  studies  finding that  prior  IAs elevate Low-Birth-Weight risk and bleeding during pregnancy risk.[9, Harlap; URL:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2993014/pdf/nihms164122.pdf

? What happens when the Nuremberg Code is flagrantly violated ?

Answer:  women fooled into abortion-quackery elevate their risk of breast cancer and boost their future risk of  delivering premature & handicapped newborn babies. In January 2009 a letter in the Israel Medical Association Journal (IMAJ) warned readers about the consequences of making Israeli women  'Guinea Pigs'  for  'suction'  abortion, a  treatment  that  has  zero published animal studies to validate its safety.[10, Rooney] In the Adden-
dum is an electronic copy of that 2009 IMAJ letter, which has never been
challenged in the IMAJ.

'Dr.' Josef Rudolph Mengele ('angel of death') crippled or killed roughly 6 thousand children in World War II at  Auschwitz via his outrageous & evil human  experiments  ( mostly  performed on twins ). [11,  Lagnado]  The number of  Israeli children crippled or killed via the Abortion-Preemie risk
may not  have  reached  Mengele's grisly  total, but  why should the wise
women of Israel volunteer to undergo abortion-quackery? [ portrait of 'Dr.' Mengele: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josef_Mengele ]

It's time for a return to Ethical Medicine.

Pregnancy-Associated Breast Cancer and the Nuremberg Code


To the Editor:


In their recent review in this journal [1] Keinan-Boker and co-authors

stated: “The trend for delayed parenthood may well increase the risk

for pregnancy-associated breast cancer, since the proportion of pregnant

women at an advanced age and thus at a higher risk for breast cancer is

increasing.” Lack of informed consent has helped boost the average

age of first delivery. In 2001 Henriet and Kaminski [2] reported that

French women with two or more prior IA (induced abortions) had 2.4

times the risk of having a maternal age of 35 or above compared to

French women with zero prior IAs. In general, IA consent forms fail

to inform women that: a) postponing a first full-term pregnancy elevates

lifetime breast cancer risk; b) IA elevates a woman's risk of a future

preterm delivery [3]; and c) suction curettage IA violates the 1947

Nuremberg Code, since there are zero published peer-reviewed animal

studies of suction curettage [4].

In 2004 Innes and Byers reported [5] that women who delivered

under 32.0 weeks' gestation had twice the risk of breast cancer as

women who delivered a full-term newborn. In a recent article my

colleagues and I [4] listed six statistically significant studies reporting

that women with prior IAs have an elevated risk of delivering a newborn

under 28 weeks' gestation.

The Israel Medical Association would serve Israeli women well

by alerting the Israeli government to the fact that 100% of suction

curettage abortions violate the 1947 Nuremberg Code [4]. To my

knowledge, there are zero non-human primate studies for any surgical

abortion procedure (suction curettage, D & C, D & E, D & X)

demonstrating no increased risk of preterm delivery for primates

with prior surgical abortions.

Open Letter to U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin,


Thank you for making a marked reduction in the U.S. 'preemie'

(premature birth) rate a high priority of the Surgeon General's office.

As Surgeon General, you would be very outraged if the most common

elective surgery performed on U.S. women (including Black-American

and Latino women ) had zero published [nonhuman] animal studies to

validate its safety (a clear violation of principle 3 of the 1947 Nuremberg

Code). Sadly, this is the case, since there are zero published animal

studies for 'suction' (i.e. vacuum aspiration) abortion.[1, Rooney] You

know that you have never seen reference to such a study, nor can your

staff find such a study. Why? No such published animal study exists.


As a member of IoM (Institute of Medicine) you are well aware of the

IoM preterm birth textbook.[2, Behrman] You likely read in that textbook

that eminent reproductive health scientist Greg Roy Alexander (ScD,

MPH) listed 14 “Immutable Medical Risk Factors Associated with

Preterm Birth”; the third listed risk being:


Prior first trimester induced abortion

[URL: http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=11622&page=625 ]


Possibly, Dr. Benjamin, you were waiting for confirmation of the

Abortion-Preemie risk via a SYSTEMATIC REVIEW & META-ANALYSIS

(SRMA) so women would not be falsely scared about an abortion risk;

before Feb. 2009 zero Abortion-Preemie SRMAs existed. In Feb.

2009 the Dr. Hanes Swingle & colleagues SRMA reported that women

with prior IAs (Induced Abortions) significantly raise their premature

delivery risk and most distressingly, IAs boost relative odds of very

preterm birth ( under 32.0 weeks' gestation) by 64%.[3, Swingle] It is

hardly news to you that BJOG [British Journal of Obstetrics &

Gynaecology] is a very prestigious medical publication in the

reproductive medicine field. In October 2009 BJOG published the

Dr. Prakesh Shah ( U. Toronto ) SRMA which found that one prior IA

raises PTB (Preterm Birth) relative odds by 36%, but more than one

prior IA increases PTB odds by 93% ( i.e. almost double the 'preemie'

risk).[4, Shah] This 'dose-response' finding was also present in the

'Swingle' SRMA. [3, Swingle] Thus, in 2009 the Abortion-Preemie risk

became SETTLED SCIENCE.


As you well know, Informed Medical Consent ( IMC ) for medical

treatment enjoys a very high degree of popular support and IMC is

legally recognized by all levels of the U.S. legal system. Should you

Dr. Benjamin, the Surgeon General, be silent about the 'Abortion-Preemie'

risk? In 1961 FDA official Dr. Frances Kelsey read a letter (not a

study or a SRMA) in the British Medical Journal about peripheral

neuropathy suffered by a few Thalidomide users in the UK. Dr. Kelsey

denied Thalidomide approval for sale in the U.S. until proof of

Thalidomide safety was given to the FDA. Due to Dr. Frances Kelsey

Thalidomide was never approved for commercial sale in the U.S.A.

To say that Dr. Kelsey in 1960-1961 was under intense pressure to affirm

that Thalidomide was safe , would be quite an understatement. However,

the pressure for a U.S. Surgeon General to deny the 'Abortion-Preemie'

risk or remain silent about this known risk would be much more intense

than the pressure applied to Dr. Kelsey.


We request that before 4 July 2012 you inform the TA (Technology

Assessment) unit of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (USGAO)

and the Institute of Medicine that there are at least 2 published SRMAs

in peer-reviewed medical journals that reported that women with prior

induced abortions have statistically significantly higher risk of preterm

delivery compared to women with zero prior induced abortions. Enclosed

are hard copies of both the 'Swingle' Feb. 2009 SRMA & the 'Shah' Oct.

2009 SRMA.

 

If you Dr. Benjamin do inform the TA unit and the IoM of at least the

'Swingle' SRMA & the 'Shah' SRMA, you will contribute to cutting the

U.S. Cerebral Palsy rate. In 2012 Matthew Maenner and colleagues

reported that the CP rate for Black-American children approximates

3.7/1,000 (16% higher than the Caucasian rate of 3.2/1,000 ).[5, Maenner]

The 2008 Eveline Himpens et al CP SRMA reported that newborns

between 28.0 and 32.0 weeks' gestation have 55 times the CP risk as do

full-term newborns.[6, Himpens] In Oct. 2007 Dr. Byron Calhoun and

colleagues estimated that there were appropriately 1,096 U.S. newborns

under 1,500 grams in 2002 later diagnosed with CP as a result of their

mothers' prior induced abortions.[7, Calhoun] The 2007 'Calhoun' study

has not been challenged via a 'letter to the editor' in 53 months since

its Oct. 2007 publication. There is no time limit to challenging that 2007

study.


In the 'Court of Medicine' a new surgery or new drug is presumed

'guilty' of a credible adverse risk until demonstrated 'innocent' of

that risk by very strong evidence provided by both animal and human

studies.”


In 1958 vacuum aspiration ( i.e. suction ) abortion was revealed to the

medical world by 2 doctors in China.[8, Wu] What animals were the test

subject? Not [nonhuman] animals but 300 women in China. Surely, Dr.

Regina Benjamin opposes 'Guinea Pig' medicine. [I am a medical researcher

with a special focus on premature birth risk factors.]

Addendum: Abstract Results section of the 2009 'Shah' SYSTEMATIC REVIEW


Main results Thirty-seven studies of low-moderate risk of bias were included.

A history of one I-TOP [Induced-Termination Of Pregnancy] was associated

with increased unadjusted odds of LBW (OR 1.35, 95% CI 1.20-1.52) and PT

(OR 1.36, 95% CI 1.24-1.50), but not SGA (OR 0.87, 95% CI 0.69-1.09). A

history of more than one I-TOP was associated with LBW (OR 1.72, 95% CI

1.45-2.04) and PT (OR 1.93, 95% CI 1.28-2.71). Meta-analysis of adjusted risk

estimates confirmed these findings.” [ Full 'Shah' study at URL: http://www.bjog.org/details/journalArticle/345727/Induced_termination_of_pregnancy_and_low_birthweight_and_preterm_birth_a_systema.html ]

Open Letter Hon. Rep. Henry Waxman (D, California),


Being very concerned about the health of

Hispanic-American women, you would never

want even one Hispanic-American woman to

be subjected to an elective (i.e. unnecessary)

surgery that raises her future risk of a preterm

and handicapped newborn baby. Earlier in 2010

we asked you to provide a citation of a

SYSTEMATIC REVIEW that did NOT report

that prior IAs ( Induced Abortions ) boost a

woman's risk of a future premature delivery.

Unless you can provide such a citation before

mid August, an 'IN PRESS' letter will reveal that

you, Hon. Rep. Henry Waxman, have not provided

the required citation. A copy of that coming letter

is in the P.S. of this letter. If you can provide the

required citation, email may be the quickest way to

do so (+ hard copy confirmation via snail mail;

email addresses:


Brent Rooney <fullterm40@gmail.com>

Brent Rooney <stopcacner@yahoo.com>

Dr. Jane Orient <jorient@mindspring.com>,


You will be doing young California women a wonderful

service by warning them about elective surgeries that

represent the plausible future risk of preterm and handicapped

newborn. You well know that premature babies have

elevated odds of 'MACE' ( Mental retardation, Autism,

Cerebral palsy, & Epilepsy) disorders, blindness, deafness,

serious infections, respiratory distress, etc.


Thank you, for considering this health threat to young

American women.

P.S. 'In Press' letter to be published in September 2010

Abortion and Pre-term Delivery


In his 2008 article, [1] Brent Rooney asserts that the

high preterm birth rate suffered by African-American

women is, in large part, caused by the high abortion

rate of that race. Do other races or groups in the U.S.

or other countries also suffer the same effect?


Babette Francis,

Toorak, Victoria, Australia


Author Reply: The first-ever systematic reviews and

meta-analyses (SRMAs) of the abortion-preterm-birth

(APB) risk appeared in 2009, with both finding significantly

higher premature delivery (PTD) risk for women with prior

IAs (induced abortions).[2,3]


Prakesh Shah of the University of Toronto, [2] using data

from 37 prior APB studies, reported that more than one prior IA nearly

doubles PTD odds (OR 1.93; 95% CI, 1.28-2.71)). There are no

SRMAs reporting that prior IAs do not raise PTD risk. Some of the

countries included in the Shah meta-analysis are Australia, Scotland,

France, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Israel, Taiwan, Greece,, U.S.,

Finland, Sweden and Russia.


Swingle et al. [3] reported that women with prior IAs have

64% higher odds of very preterm delivery (<32.0 weeks' gestation)

than women with no prior IAs.


Extremely preterm newborns (<28 weeks' gestation) have

an autism risk of 25% [4] and a cerebral palsy (CP) risk of 14.6%.

[5] Between 1989 and 1993, Poland's IA rate per 1,000 births plunged

by 98%.[1] Between 1995 and 1997, Poland's rate of extremely

preterm newborns decreased by 21%.[1] Between 1989 and 2006,

Poland's mortality rate for children under age 5 years with CP

plummeted by 71%, according to data I received by email from

Poland's Central Statistical Office on June 12, 2008. This trend

suggests a dramatic drop in the incidence of severe brain injury,

a major cause of both autism and CP, [4] in Polish newborns.


The total lifetime cost of autism for a U.S. resident, including

medical and nonmedical expenses and lost income, is an

estimated $3.2 million, according to Harvard researcher Michael

Ganz. [6] The approximately 39,000 cases of autism presenting in

the U.S. each year represent a future drain of about $125 billion on

the U.S. economy. Prior IA is likely the cause of some of those cases

of autism.


No ethnic group has been shown to be exempt from the APB risk.

Ross et al. [7] showed a 31% higher odds of PTB in women with

previous IAs compared with women with no IAs. In this study,

performed at the University of California at Los Angeles, 84% of

the women were of 'Hispanic' ethnicity. We challenged the

congressional representative from this district, Henry Waxman, to find

any systematic review performed in this century that did not find

an APB risk. So far he has provided no citations.


Calhoun et al. [8] estimate that 31.5% of U.S. very preterm

deliveries in 2002 were attributable to prior IAs, and that 1,096 cases

of CP in newborns under 1,500 grams were attributable to prior IAs.


Harvard University professors Dr. Robert Fletcher and Dr.

Suzanne Fletcher identified the category of medical study that

provides the highest confidence that a purported risk factor is

an actual risk factor as a Systematic Review. [9]

             Open Letter to Rep. Hon. Henry Waxman (D, California)  4 January 2010
                      Brent Rooney (MSc, fullterm40@gmail.com)

The following letter was 'snail mailed' to Rep. Hon. Henry Waxman to see if

he can identify (before 1 Feb. 2010) any 21st century SYSTEMATIC review of

all prior abortion-premature-birth studies to clearly show that prior induced

abortions do NOT raise future risk of premature birth.

Hon. Rep. Henry Waxman (D, California)           4 January 2010
2204 Rayburn HOB Washington DC, 20515

Open Letter to Hon. Rep. Henry Waxman (D, California),

As a Congressman much concerned with the health of minority women,
including Hispanic-American & Black-American women, you would not want
these women to be subject to elective surgical procedures with a plausible
higher risk of future premature & handicapped newborn babies. (I am a medical
researcher & lead author of a recent study that revealed that the most common
abortion procedure in the USA, “suction” (i.e. vacuum aspiration) abortion,
has not been safety validated via a published animal study; URL: http://www.jpands.org/vol13no4/rooney.pdf ). As one trained in the law, you are
appalled that all “suction” abortions violate the 3rd principle 1947 Nuremberg
Code, since no animal testing was ever done;
http://www.jpands.org/vol13no4/rooney.pdf .

If you, Hon. Rep. Henry Waxman, can identify any 21st century SYSTEMATIC
review of the APB ( Abortion-Preterm-Birth ) risk that did not find that prior
induced abortions significantly elevate premature birth risk, please cite that
SYSTEMATIC review on or before 1 February 2010. The only published
APB SYSTEMATIC reviews have found that prior induced abortions significantly
raise preterm delivery risk.[8,9,10] It is hardly news to you, Hon. Rep. Waxman,
or us that Hispanic-Americans enjoy a growth rate not exceeded by any other
group. As documented in the Appendix to this letter, the evidence is absolutely
overwhelming that women with prior induced abortions (IAs) boost their future
risk of delivering premature newborn babies; the high U.S. 'preemie' rate much
concerns the U.S. Congress. One might think it possible that Hispanic-American
women could be exempt from the APB ( Abortion-Preterm-Birth ) risk. Professor
Michael Ross (UCLA; <mikeross@ucla.edu>) was lead author of a 1986 study
in which 84% of the women subjects in Los Angeles were Hispanic-Americans
(see reference 4 below). One 'Michael Ross' finding was that women with prior
induced abortions had 31% higher relative odds of delivering a newborn baby
prematurely (under 37 weeks' gestation). Thus, U.S. legislation that funds elective
induced abortions will promote more preterm births for Hispanic-American
women. We are quite confident that you would never want taxpayer dollars to
fund an elective surgery that harms newborn Hispanic-American babies. (Copy
of the 1986 'Ross' study enclosed). SYTEMATIC APB reviews are the key.

Appendix: Fewer Brain Damaged Hispanic-American Newborns Possible
(Brent Rooney (MSc; fullterm40@gmail ))

In under 20 minutes a young pregnant Latina woman can double her future
risk of a brain damaged newborn baby. Premature babies face higher risk of
CP (Cerebral Palsy), autism, epilepsy, mental retardation (all brain damage
injuries). Newborns under 28 weeks' gestation have 129 times the CP risk; those
born before 32 weeks face 55 times the CP risk as fullterm (i.e. at least 37 weeks)
babies.[Himpens, 1] A surgery never proven safe on animals, as evidenced by
published animal studies, is being performed on pregnant Hispanic women in the
United States.[Rooney, 2] This surgery boosts a woman's future risk of delivering
a premature baby.[Murphy, 3] Dr. Deirdre J. Murphy explains:

Induced abortion has been associated with very preterm delivery (<33 weeks) in

the French regional EPIPAGE study (OR 1.5, 95% CI 1.1-2.0)[27] and this was con-

firmed by the International EUROPOP study across ten European countries.[28]

The strength of association increased with decreasing gestational age and was con-

sistent across countries with varying rates of induced abortions. The increased risk

included idiopathic preterm labour, preterm premature rupture of membranes and

antepartum haemorrhage, but not maternal hypertension indicated delivery. In a

high-risk population of American women a previous second trimester delivery or

termination before 20 weeks was associated with pre-viable premature rupture of

membranes or labour (14-25 weeks)[29].” [27, 28, 29 are references #s in Murphy's

article, NOT reference numbers in the Appendix you are reading]

 

In 2009 two SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS & combined data (i.e. 'meta-analysis')

studies confirmed the APB (Abortion-Preterm-Birth) risk.[8,9]. The October 2009

'Shah' study was published in the prestigious British Journal of Obstetrics &

Gynaecology.[8]

 

In the U.S. “suction” abortion is the most frequently performed induced

abortion surgery. Perhaps, “suction” abortions pose no future 'preemie' risk for

Hispanic women. In 1986 UCLA Professor Michael Ross at al. reported on 22

potential 'preemie' risks (e.g.s. cigarette abuse, anemia, prior urinary tract infection).

[Ross, 4] Hispanic women dominated this study, comprising 84% of the subjects

from the Los Angeles, California area. Ross reported that women with prior

induced abortions significantly raised their preterm delivery odds by a relative

31%.[Ross, 4]


In addition to 'MACE' (Mental retardation, Autism, Cerebral palsy, Epilepsy)
risk preterm babies face higher odds of blindness, deafness, respiratory distress,
infections, etc.[Behrman, 5] “In 2005, 23.9% of all U.S. births were Hispanic babies, compared to 15% in 1990.”[Hamilton, 6] Thus, the 'bottom line' is:

Fewer Induced Abortions Means Fewer Damaged HISPANIC Newborns


When the American public wakes up to the ABD (Abortion Brain Damage) risk
in 1-3 years, will a political party that opposed elective abortion benefit or will a
party that defended & publicly financed elective abortions benefit? (I am a medical
researcher with a special focus on premature birth risk factors. The 2003 review study
by Brent Rooney (MSc) & Byron Calhoun (M.D., MBA) led to Texas warning women
about the abortion-preemie risk. Some of the woman warned are Hispanic-American
women in Texas.[7])

Open Letter to Ann Coulter,
 

Readers of your 30 September 2009 article (“....More Liberal Lies about National
Health Care”) about the high U.S. infant death rate should be much impressed by
your marshaling of important facts such as Black American infants being so very
hard hit. I suggest to you that “No one knows why” Black Americans have such a
high premature birth rate is not true; URL:
http://www.redstatesusa.com/archives/2009/09/a_statistical_r.html .
Eminent scientist Greg Alexander (ScD), representing the prestigious Institute of
Medicine, identified 14 “Immutable Medical Risk Factors Associated with Preterm
Birth”, the third listed risk being:

Prior first trimester induced abortion”
(Source: http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=11622&page=625 )

Why does this 'preemie' risk of previous induced abortions maim and kill more
Black American infants ( proportionately ) than Caucasian infants? In the 2008
Rooney/Calhoun/Roche (RCR) study in the Journal of American Physicians and
Surgeons we revealed (using CDC data) that Black American women have 4.3
times the IA (Induced Abortion) rate as Caucasian women. Black American women
have four times the rate of delivering a baby under 28 weeks' gestation. Such new-
born babies have 129 times the Cerebral Palsy risk as full-term newborn according
to a 2008 'study of studies' by Dr. Eveline Himpens; such extremely preterm babies
have a death rate well over 50 times that of full-term newborn. The 2008 RCR
study has never been challenged via a 'letter to the editor' ( editor@jpands.org );
[URL: http://www.jpands.org/vol13no4/rooney.pdf ]

Perhaps Greg Roy Alexander (ScD) was mistaken & the abortion-preemie risk is a
myth. Some myth! In the BJOG (British Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology) Oct-
ober 2009 issue is University of Toronto's Dr. Prakesh Shah's 'study of studies' that
used data from 37 prior abortion-preemie studies. Doctor Shah reported that women
with one prior induced abortion raised their relative odds of preterm birth by 36%
but for women with more than one prior IA her relative odds escalated by 93% (i.e.
almost a 'preemie' risk doubling); 'Shah' abstract URL:
http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/bsc/bjo/2009/00000116/00000011/art00002 .

Will the Obama 'Health Deform' bill reduce the high U.S. premature birth rate (12.7%
in 2007) and high U.S. infant mortality rate? Let's go to Atlanta, Georgia & overseas
(Poland) to get the answer. Dr. Sarah Winter and her co-researchers reported in the
prestigious medical journal PEDIATRICS (2002) that Black American newborns in
Atlanta, Georgia have 53% higher relative risk of having the brain injury of Cerebral
Palsy than Caucasian newborns in Atlanta. By paying for virtually all abortions the
B.O. 'Health Deform' law will encourage more Black American women to have 'terminations'; this can only mean more brain damaged Black American babies with
Cerebral Palsy (CP). Now, on to Poland. What would happen to the rate of severe CP
cases, if a nation's IA (Induced Abortion) rate was slashed by over 50%? As a result
of a very strict new law controlling IA access, Poland's IA rate per 1,000 live births
plunged by 98% between 1989 & 1993 according to the UN Demographic Yearbook. Between 1995 & 1997 Poland witnessed something never seen in the U.S. when its extremely preterm birth (under 28 weeks' gestation) rate dived by 21% as reported by
the RCR study (above). As a result of my request, Poland's CSO (Central Statistical
Office), in the person of Deputy Director Witold Woziak, emailed to Brent Rooney
on 12 June 2008 CP death data for Polish children for the years 1985-2006. Between
1989 and 2006 children under age 5 with Cerebral Palsy death rate cratered by 71%.
What does this mean? The more severe the CP case, the higher a young child's death
risk is. Thus, the 71% death rate drop implies an approximate 71% decrease in severe Cerebral Palsy cases in Polish infants. This Polish 'miracle' was gotten via spending
LESS (not more) money on medicine.

President B.O.'s odious 'Health Deform' bill will appeal to those who cherish the 'anti-
miracle' of brain damaging more Black American babies AND spending more money
to batter young brains (Black, Caucasian, Latina, & others). In 1980 the U.S. 'preemie'
rate was 8.9% but that rate has escalated by 43% to 12.7% in 2007. Preterm newborn
babies have higher risk of 'MACE' disorders (Mental retardation, Autism, Cerebral
palsy, Epilepsy) than do full-term newborn; ( also higher risk of blindness, deafness,
respiratory distress, gastrointestinal injury, serious infections, etc.)

The most common IA procedure, “suction” (vacuum aspiration) abortion, in violation
of principle 3 of the 1947 Nuremberg Code, has zero published animals studies to val-
idate its safety; URL: http://www.jpands.org/vol13no4/rooney.pdf

MUCHO GRACIAS for your 30 September 2009 Human Events article revealing the
high infant mortality rate of Black American newborn babies.
