Christian Democratic Party MP Fred Nile says women should reconsider having abortions "if the price of the decision is breast cancer", repeating discredited views that have angered women and health groups.
At a budget estimates hearing at Parliament on Thursday, Mr Nile called on the NSW government to alert women to the so-called dangers of abortion, later claiming that studies confirming the link to breast cancer are being "censored".
"The body is preparing to have a baby … and suddenly it's terminated, and that causes some reaction in the cells, and the cells in the breast particularly," he later told Fairfax Media.
"I can see it's logical. There could be some disturbance to the women's physiology when she has an abortion, because she is programmed to … have a baby, feed a baby, and it stops."Advertisement
The Australian Medical Association, Cancer Australia and many other health and medical authorities have rejected the link between abortion and breast cancer.
Reverend Nile's comments echo those made by senior federal frontbencher Eric Abetz in a TV interview earlier this month, which earned a rebuke from Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
