METHODS We searched the medical literature for English language studies on breast cancer incidence in…

IA is significantly associated with an increased risk of Breast cancer among Chinese females, and the risk of breast cancer increases as the number of IA increases.
Association between abortion and breast cancer: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis based on prospective studies
The current prospective evidences are not sufficient to support the positive association between abortion (including IA and SA) and breast cancer risk, and the combined relative risks (RRs) and corresponding 95 % confidence intervals (95 % CIs) were not sufficient.
Abortion history and breast cancer risk: Results from the Shanghai breast cancer study
It is suggested that a history of several induced abortions has little influence on breast cancer risk in Chinese women.

Among this predominantly premenopausal population of young women, neither induced nor spontaneous abortion was associated with the incidence of breast cancer.
Breast cancer in relation to induced abortions in a cohort of Chinese women
There was also no overall increase in risk in women with induced abortion after first birth, and increases in risk were observed in such women, they were not statistically significant and could have been due to recall bias.
Induced and spontaneous abortion and breast cancer risk: Results from the E3N cohort study
It is concluded that there is no relationship between breast cancer and induced abortion but that an association with spontaneous abortion is possible and may depend on menopausal status.
Induced abortion and breast cancer: results from a population-based case control study in China.
A population-based case-control study in Shanghai, China, suggests that a history of induced abortions may not increase the risk of breast cancer.
Breast cancer risk in relation to abortion: Results from the EPIC study
