RIP: Karen Malec, 5 May 2015
We mourn the death of Karen Malec, President of the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer. Karen was 60 years old, a survivor of colon cancer for over 20 years, but succumbed to ovarian cancer, which was diagnosed more than a year ago. Her commitment to informing women about the abortion/breast cancer link was fueled by her own struggle with cancer when she was a very young mother. The web site www.abortionbreastcancer.com is considered to be one of the most comprehensive and reliable resources available today and its content is entirely due to Karen's continuous work and dedication. She assisted Life Legal Defence Foundation in their brief against the Obamacare abortion mandate: her meticulous research struck at the heart of the abortion mentality, showing that the mother and the child in the womb are not adversaries. Karen is survived by her husband, Rich, and two adult children.
