Abortion is the induced termination of a pregnancy ,  often causing fetal pain. Abortion has two victims: the unborn child, and the mother who can never forget the loss she caused. Breast cancer rates increase by more than six times for women who have abortion, according to a recent study.  Additional victims of abortion also include after-born children, who have a higher rate of premature birth and birth defects due to the harm caused by a prior abortion.
Abortion is a billion-dollar industry in the United States. Although Planned Parenthood likes to claim abortion accounts for just 3% of its services, according to its 2007-08 budget, it received $1.038 billion of revenue, and half to two-thirds relates to its abortion services. ( See Planned Parenthood's Budget ) Dr. George Tiller "estimated that he performed 250 to 300 late-term abortions in 2003, each costing an average of $6,000."  It is estimated there have been over 54 million abortions in the United States since 1973.
