False, false and false. An often debunk "fact" used mainly by conservatives to deny women's reproductive health choices. \u00a0 http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/oral-contraceptives \u00a0 The key word there is "suggest". In science-speak this means "Preliminary research has been done which might show a link, but the studies weren't very thorough and they need in-depth verification by follow-up studies that are rigorous be cause preliminary results are often wrong, and as a result there is no consensus from the majority of medical experts on this". \u00a0 When people make claims like this, ALWAYS ask for the evidence and make sure they aren't just cherry-picking what supports their agenda and ignoring the rest.
