Believe or not, elective induced abortions have no proven
health benefits for women, short term (under 5 years) or long
term, but many demonstrated health detriments, including raised
risks of: breast cancer, premature born babies in subsequent
pregnancies, suicide, and substance abuse . If you examine your
signed IA (Induced Abortion) consent form, it is very unlikely
that any of those four (4) raised risks are listed on it, nor
many additional serious raised IA risks. I.E. your legal right
to informed medical consent has been violated. The Top-Sue
website will inform you about adverse risks imparted by elective
abortions and some legal ‘angles’ that may well improve your
odds of success in a medical malpractice law suit BEFORE an
HONEST and probing court.
I, Brent Rooney (MSc), am a medical researcher with a
main focus on premature birth risk factors. Highlights of my
research and activism are displayed in the Appendix below.

The final decision on whether it is likely worth your while
and not too costly (dollar-wise and emotion-wise) to sue an
abortion doctor and/or abortion clinic, is a decision only you can
make, after, of course, consulting with a lawyer you trust and also
listening to medical experts you trust. I, Brent Rooney (MSc), am
not a lawyer and my medical expertise is mostly in the premature
birth field (in which I hold four (4) world firsts).
The information I provide related to possible abortion law
suits lies in these areas:
- - - why elective abortion is a strongly contraindicated procedure
for young women, especially childless young women. If an
honest, objective, & unbiased court is convinced that a specific
woman plaintiff’s elective abortion was clearly contraindicated
and should not have even been performed, that may well
improve a woman’s chances of winning her legal claims.
[ click on http://www.top-sue.org/chapter-4 ]
- - - why abortion consent forms are, in general, severely deficient,
mostly by not listing credible adverse medical risks due
to Induced Abortion history.[ click http://www.top-sue.org/chapter-2 ]
- - - important legal victories against abortion doctors and
clinics, including a 2005 law suit that included a claim of
(paraphrase) ‘put at increased breast cancer risk’, a law suit
won by plaintiff “F.B.” in Portland, Oregon.[CI: Chapter 3]
- - - Reducing the legal Burden of Proof that rests squarely on the
shoulders of women plaintiffs suing abortion doctors & clinics.
For a U.S. woman (or man) to win a medical negligence law suit,
the adverse risk does NOT have to be one that is a very well
accepted raised risk of a medical treatment, according to a U.S.
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision.[ click on:
http://www.top-sue.org/chapter-4 ] The adverse risk need only be
a POTENTIAL risk to require than adverse risk warnings be given
in advance of treatment. There exist ZERO peer-reviewed published
studies demonstrating that in the short term (1-5 years) after ‘the end
of pregnancy’ women who have elective abortions have less total risk
of dying (known as ALL-CAUSE MORTALITY) compared to
women who deliver babies.[click http://www.top-sue.org/chapter-1 ].

Note: Falsifying the TOP-SUE website information
If you, Mr./Mrs. skeptic, can show that ANY of the following are NOT
facts, using strong references and exact references to do so, honest readers of TOP-SUE should disregard all the TOP-SUE information. Of course, Mr./Mrs. skeptic, to show that you are ‘open and above board’,
you should email a copy of your claimed refutation to Brent Rooney
( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Here are the facts you are challenged to
1 Before 2019 there was NOT at least one SRMA (Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis) that found that a woman’s history of induced abortion did not significantly increase a woman’s risk of a premature delivery of a baby. [Such a SRMA, if it existed (it does not), would
somewhat detract from the fact that four (4) SRMAs that have
reported that IA history significantly raises a woman’s risk of a premature delivery.]
2 Before 2019 there were zero published animal studies of
vacuum aspiration (aka ‘suction’) abortion in a peer-reviewed
medical journal (which means that 100% of ‘suction’ abortions
violate the third principle of the 1947 Nuremberg Code).
3 Premature born baby faces higher cerebral palsy (CP)
risk compared to babies born full-term (at least 37 weeks’
4 It is medical fact that each one year a young woman postpones
her completion of a First Full-Term Pregnancy increases her
lifetime breast cancer risk.
5 IA (Induced Abortion) consent forms that have breast cancer warnings on them are the exception, not the rule.
6 A 2018 meta-analysis published in a peer-reviewed medical
journal has reported that premature babies face raised Autism risk
compared to babies born at full-term.
7 In 1967 abortion advocate Dr. Malcolm Potts wrote:
“...there seems little doubt that there is a true relationship
between the high incidence of therapeutic abortion and
prematurity. The interruption of pregnancy in the young
(under seventeen) is more dangerous than in other cases...”
[ Reference: Eugenics Review 1967, Volume 59, pp. 232-250 ]
8 In January 1973 Dr. Brian MacMahon (Harvard University) and
co-authors in their study alerted readers to the following fact:
“[Breast Cancer] Protection is exerted only by a full-term pregnancy. Abortion and breast cancer were not associated in all study areas;
where a relationship was observed, abortion was associated with increased,
not decreased risk...”
[ Reference: MacMahon B, Cole P, Brown J. Etiology of Human Breast Cancer: A Review. Journal National Cancer Institute. 1973;50:21-42 ]
Appendix: Brent Rooney's Research & Activist Record
1 Brent Rooney (MSc) is a co-author of the 2018
Joel Brind (PhD) et al. 'study of studies' that
demonstrated that 'abortion history' in the
Indian subcontinent significantly raises a woman's
risk of breast cancer; URL:
Brind J, Condly SJ, Lanfranchi A, Rooney B. Induced
Abortion as an Independent Risk Factor for Breast Cancer: A
Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Studies of South
Asian Women. Issues in Law and Medicine 2018;33(1):33-54
2 Every pregnant woman in Texas who visited an abortion
clinic was mandated by law to be offered the WRTK (Women's
Right To Know) booklet that warned about adverse risks of
abortions (between 1 January 2004 and December 2016).
One of warnings was that prior abortions raise the
risk that a future pregnancy will end prematurely. That
abortion-preemie warning would not have existed without
the May 2003 Brent Rooney/Dr. Byron Calhoun study; URL:
http://www.jpands.org/vol8no2/rooney.pdf . Dr. Martha Garza,
in 2003 using the Rooney/Calhoun study as a 'road map'
turned around a special Texas medical panel to accept the
APB (Ab.-Preterm-Birth) risk as one to be included in the
Texas WRTK booklet. According to Jana Huband (Justice
Institute) that special medical panel was NOT inclined to
recognize the APB risk before Dr. Garza made her Fall 2003
presentation. Here is the Texas WRTK 'preemie' warning:
“......Some large studies have reported a doubling of the risk
of premature birth in later pregnancy if a woman has had
two induced abortions. The same studies report an 800
percent increase in the risk of extremely early premature
births (less than 28 weeks) for a woman who has
experienced four or more induced abortions. Very
premature babies, who have the highest risk of death, also
have the highest risk for lasting disabilities, such as mental
retardation, cerebral palsy, lung and gastrointestinal
problems, and vision and hearing loss.” [page 17]
That WRTK warning was in effect from 1 January 2004
until December 2016.
3 The December 2008 Brent Rooney/Dr. Byron Calhoun/Lisa
Roche (J.D.) study demonstrated that a major reason Black-
Americans have a very high premature birth rate is that Black-
American women have over 4 times the IA (Induced Abortion)
rate as non-Black women; URL:
http://www.jpands.org/vol13no4/rooney.pdf . This 2008 study
also revealed that 'suction' (ie. vacuum aspiration) abortions
violate principle 3 of the 1947 Nuremberg Code, since there
there are no published [nonhuman] animal studies of 'suction'
abortion. The 1947 N.C. insists that before a new medical
treatment is applied to humans it must first be tested on animals.
4 The best comprehensive review of adverse abortion side-effects
is the 2018 book COMPLICATIONS with lead author Dr.
Angela Lanfranchi. Brent Rooney was the main consultant for
Chapter 15 (Premature and preterm birth after abortion).
5 Between 2008 & 2012 National Post editorial writer Barbara
Kay on at least 5 occasions warned readers of the N.P. about
the abortion-preemie risk. The bulk of Kay's material on this
subject came from Brent Rooney. National Post is a major
Canadian newspaper. More than once Kay mentioned CP
as a side-effect risk of premature birth in these editorials.
6 In 2013 Barbara Kay finally addressed the ABC (Abortion-
Breast-Cancer) issue in the National Post on 11 December
2013, confirming that prior induced abortions raise a woman's
breast cancer risk. [ URL: http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comment/barbara-kay-hard-truths-about-abortion ]
Before 2013 Kay had doubts about the validity of the ABC
risk. Material (including a hard copy of the 1989 Holly Howe
ABC study 'snail mailed') sent by Brent Rooney to Kay helped
to convince her of the validity of the ABC risk; Barbara Kay
has cited the 1989 Holly Howe study to support the ABC risk.
The Holly Howe study used a New York abortion registry
to ascertain abortion history, not interviews of women. Thus,
critics can not claim that the women's memories of abortion
history were faulty, since the women were not relied upon
to supply this information.
7 Brent Rooney was the first to alert the medical community in
an explicit (not in an implicit) manner that prior IAs were a
credible risk factor for future deliveries of preterm babies
with CP (Cerebral Palsy). This was accomplished via a 'letter
to the editor' in the European Journal of Obstetrics &
Gynecology and Reproductive Biology in the 2nd quarter of
2001. That letter remains unchallenged. Reference:
Rooney B. Elective surgery boosts cerebral palsy risk. European
Journal Obstetrics Gynecology Reproductive Biology 2001;96(2):239-240
8 March 1994: the first publication in North America with a
circulation exceeding 50,000, ALIVE magazine (CANADA),
addressed a question about the ABC risk. Brent Rooney posed
an ABC question to ALIVE's medical adviser who confirmed
that IAs boost breast cancer risk (other breast cancer risks such
as oral contraceptives and diet were also mentioned).
9 The October 2007 study by Dr. Byron Calhoun, Dr. Elizabeth
Shadigian, and Brent Rooney in the Journal of Reproductive
Medicine was the first to ever estimate the number of U.S.
newborn babies born yearly with CP due to their mothers'
prior IAs. Brent Rooney designed the method to compute that
number, 1096 CP cases of U.S. babies under 1,500 grams
at birth in 2002. This October 2007 study has never been
challenged via a 'letter to the editor' in over 11 years.

induced abortion as an attributable risk for preterm birth and
informed consent. Journal Reproductive Medicine 2007;

B. Other Credits
10 A major 'player' in exposing the ABC (Abortion-Breast-Cancer)
risk Brent Rooney is NOT. That role belongs to Joel Brind (PhD),
Dr. Angela Lanfranchi, and the late Karen Malec. B.R. alerted
those 3 major players to many ABC studies from the Indian sub-
continent with the average increase in relative breast cancer risk
exceeding 200%. For honest researchers this evidence for
the ABC risk should convince them that the 'ABC' risk is REAL.
11 The best video validating the abortion-preemie risk was
produced by B. Keith Neely. I vetted its contents to assure
accuracy of information. URL: [11 minute version
http://aaplog.org/media-resources/ ; shorter 4 minute
version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IoWZEJNMdA ]
12 Secured the translation into English of a Hungarian gov't
admission in Dec. 1973 that Hungary's 'preemie' epidemic
of the 1960s and early 1970s was due to induced abortions.
It can be an exhibit in future medical malpractice law
suits to show that the abortion-preemie risk is not some new
risk that doctors can not be expected to know about. If after
the 1970s abortion procedures had been made safe, this
translation would be worth approximately zero. IA
procedures have never been made safe from increased
'preemie' risk in later pregnancies.
13 The July-August 1995 issue of ALIVE magazine carried the
Brent Rooney article 'No Breast Cancer for My Daughter”
that provided readers with 13 steps to reduce breast cancer
risk. One of the 13 steps advised to avoid induced abortions.
Surprisingly, no angry letters to ALIVE were triggered by
14 May 1997 ALIVE magazine article by Brent Rooney showing
that a term pregnancy at a young maternal age slashes lifetime
breast cancer risk.
