    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

( youcansue@gmail.com ). Here are the facts you are challenged to

refute:

 

 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’

gestation).

 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 ]

 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:

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.

 Calhoun BC, Shadigian E, Rooney B. Cost consequences of

 induced abortion as an attributable risk for preterm birth and

 informed consent. Journal Reproductive Medicine 2007;

 52:929-939. [Abstract: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=calhoun%20shadigian%20rooney]

 

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

 this article.

 

14 May 1997 ALIVE magazine article by Brent Rooney showing

 that a term pregnancy at a young maternal age slashes lifetime

 breast cancer risk.
