Hijacking of Science as Political Tool Widespread

I know that Jim Holt kicks off his campaign for U.S. Senate today with a five city whirlwind tour, but hey we all knew he was gonna do it. Let's talk about something you may not know.

The left has hijacked institutions of science in order to use them as a political tool. This story on the abortion-breast cancer link is another example of that hijacking. The National Cancer Institute, doubtless with an eye on PC and grant money, skewed their data to claim that there was no link between abortion and breast cancer. How did they come to that conclusion? By throwing out the majority of studies on the subject which concluded that there WAS a link!

It may be that the chairman of that panel has defected. She has now authored a study which shows there is a link between induced abortion and a particularly nasty type of breast cancer.

The public is going to lose faith in "science" because researchers are abandoning their integrity in a quest for grant dollars.
