The Howe study, done in 1989, was based totally on a prospective data base from the state of New York (both fetal death and breast cancer being mandated as reportable diseases). There is no possibility of “recall bias” influencing the result. The study found a 90% increase in breast cancer by age 40 among women who had undergone induced abortion, compared to those who carried their pregnancy to delivery.
