LETTER: No more state assistance for pregnancy resource centers

Monday, May 16, 2011 | 11:52 a.m. CDT

Editor's note — Last week, we asked: Should pregnancy resource centers continue to receive state funding? This letter is written in response.

An emphatic no.  After reviewing the relevant scientific studies, the National Cancer Institute concluded that abortion does not increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer, and the American Psychological Association concluded that abortion does not increase a woman’s risk of mental health problems. I don’t want my taxpayer money used to subsidize propaganda.
