Study Doesn't Back Abortion-Cancer Link

"A Harvard study released Monday supports earlier findings by a panel of experts that having an abortion doesn't increase a woman's risk of getting breast cancer..."


Maybe I'm missing something obvious here, but this story has me a bit confused. Despire the opening line and title, the article still says: "What evidence shows is that childbearing before the age of 35 reduces a woman's breast cancer risk". If this speaks of carrying the baby to term (or at least for a few months), wouldn't abortions cut short that healthy process, and thus effect the chances of getting cancer, albeit indirectly? So, if I understand what they're saying, while the abortion might not directly increase the chances of getting cancer, it will nonetheless eliminate a process that would help reduce the chances, so that the end result is still a higher chance of getting cancer?  But, again, maybe I'm missing something.
