Karen Malec is the President and Co-Founder of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, an international women's organization founded to protect the health and save the lives of women by educating and providing information on abortion as a risk factor for breast cancer. She is a public speaker and author of several articles including, 'The Abortion-Breast Cancer Link: How Politics Trumped Science and Informed Consent'. She has provided testimony before state legislatures and has conducted numerous interviews in print, radio and television on this topic as she is a breast cancer expert.

Karen is optimistic that the court will give some protection to Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties because of their First Amendment rights of religious freedom.

She noted how the government's attorney said that women's rights would be undermined and they would be treated as 'second class citizens' if companies like Hobby Lobby are allowed to opt out of providing abortion inducing drugs.

The attorney for Hobby Lobby responded by saying that if it's the government's goal to provide such drugs to all women in America, there are other means that the government could use in order to achieve that goal.

The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer has filed an amicus brief with the court on this issue. The thrust of the amicus brief is that in order for the Obama administration to be successful in coercing corporations to provide abortion inducing drugs and contraceptives against their religious beliefs, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act requires that the government must show that it has a compelling interest in this matter. The compelling interest that the Obama administration has claimed is that use of contraceptive steroids and abortion inducing steroids constitutes women's preventative health care.

If this is true, then why did the World Health Organization classify the birth control pill as a group one cancer causing substance nearly 9 years ago? That's the highest level of carcinogenicity. That's on the same level as mustard gas, benzine, cadmium and tobacco.

The pill raises the risk for cancer of the breast, liver and cervix. Karen admits that the World Health Organization says that the pill does reduce the risk for two cancers; cancers of the endometrium and ovaries. However, in the U.S. there are four times as many cases of breast cancer every year than there are total cases of ovarian and endometrial cancers put together. In other words, the cases of cancer that the pill causes are far greater than the number of cancers that it may prevent.

8 medical groups have issued statements stating that abortion itself raises the risk by leaving the breast with more places for cancer to start. Karen also noted that it's universally recognized that child-bearing, an early first full-term pregnancy and breast feeding all help to reduce the cancer risk.
