    Angelina Jolie came out with a bombshell of an announcement today by informing the world that she had a preventative double mastectomy recently. In a New York Times Op-Ed, she wrote that after receiving test results showing she had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer, she decided to preemptively have her breasts removed before cancer struck. Her goal in letting the world know about this was to educate women out there about the preemptive actions they can take with finding out their susceptibility to cancer.

    I just want to applaud Ms. Jolie for coming forward with such a personal matter and turning something so scary into a positive. She could have easily kept this out of the public view, especially with the way that reconstructive surgery is in this day in age, but she chose to go public in hopes of helping other women out there. Thoughts on Ms. Jolie going public with this and if it was the right thing for her to do?

    Good for her. ..."right thing for her to do?"... if she weighs the pros and cons and decides to do this then yes it's the right decision for her.

    Miss District of Columia is considering the same procedure, and she is just as beautiful as Jolie and probably 20 years younger. She also has a family history, still it takes courage to do this and even more courage to go public.

    You go girls.

    I also had this surgery September of 2012, I carry the BRCA2 gene. By the grace of God my two girls do not carry the gene. I am glad that you are making others aware of this, as it could change their lives. My mother died at the age of 44, from cancer that had spread from her breast because they did not catch it in time. She has been gone going on 22 years, I am the age now that she was when she passed. I only wished that she could of had the chance I had at having the surgery and to be hear with me now. My sister who is a year younger than me had breast cancer also and has had both removed, my maternal grandmother and her brother also have had breast cancer. You are very brave and I commend you, everyone that knows that I had this surgery has asked me if I heard about you having the same surgery. I feel this connection with you and just want to say thank you and may God bless you as he has me.

    The one who wrote "And When I Die" died at the same age and from the same cancer as her mom. I bet her son doesn't even want kids.

    I think she made an excellent decision! Not only has she paved the way for females with a high chance of breast cancer, but she has paved the way for showing people that breasts are not a form of sex appeal. That females can be sexy and flatchested! Breast implants can be a thing of the past!

    OMG! Implants! Guess she is smart but insecure. Had to have breasts to feel female. How sad.

    rjazzy why does it matter to you if she gets implants or not? Sounds like you are judging her. Maybe she's insecure, maybe not, but if she made a decision for whatever reason to have the implants then why should that bother you or I or anyone else?

    To get implants or not seems like a very personal decision, don't you think?

    It may have to do with her career and Hollywood puts lots of emphasis on physical appearance.

    Why don't we just thank her for making public her decision to have the possibly life saving surgery which may inspire others to do the same? Isn't that good enough?

    Angelina Jolie is a FRAUD.

    She NEVER had any such surgery. I have examined all her pictures around the time she claimed she had had a 'mastectomy" and there is NO evidence of any such surgery having taken place. It is my considered opinion that she merely had a regular BOOB JOB and then proceeded to FOB it off on the public as a "mastectomy" in order to make Brad Pitt "look good" during that WWZ premiere that was expected to go badly- and to distaract people from asking questions about that GUN SMUGGLING INCIDENT that took place during filming, and which mysteriously fell right OFF the radar within the same week. But more of this anon...

    The pictures show NO signs whatever of swelling or trauma to her upper chest (she is wearing a LOW-CUT SHIRT in some of the pics and her chest is as BONY as ever), and her breasts appear perfectly NORMAL. This is completely inconsistent with a "mastectomy" but fully consistent with a 'boob job" (Prosthetics are not worn against the healing flesh for up to a YEAR afterwards). She was also photo'ed carrying a heavy knapsack over her shoulder, with the strap resting against her chest and with with her arm fully flexed and NO sign of distress. She also wore strapless dresses to the premiere and was waving to the crowd-with NO SIGN of any laparoscopy scars under her arms; again, something COMPLETELY inconsistent with such surgery.

    Now, there is evidence that she was shilling for Big Pharma: there is an article at naturalnews.dotcom that exposes that she was collaborating with a pharmaceutical company to promote their product, and so likely received a BIG PAYOFF to LIE to the public and WOMEN in particular. No doubt they are hoping that women will follow suit and so pour BIG BUCKS into the pockets of the medical/pharmaceutical industry! She has been exposed as a LIAR again and again ("We are not having an affair" "I only ever slept with 4 men" "Zahara is an AIDS orphan" (she is neither) and the list goes ON.

    And here's even a BIGGER kicker: She works for the CIA as an operative and is most likely smuggling DRUGS for them!

    I won't go into details about the drug smuggling accusation; you can "search" them for yourself at the anti-Angelina site femalefirst dot co dot UK; I will merely point out that the bulk of her "humanitarian work" is conducted in and out of countries involved in "the trade"- and ask yourself: how many "humanitarians" do you know who fly around on their "missions of mercy " in PRIVATE JETS, hmmm?

    But funny how nobody asked any questions about WHY Brad Pitt GOT OFF SO LIGHTLY in that GUN SMUGGLING incident! The ONLY agency that has the kind of authority to 'hush up" such a SERIOUS offense as GUN SMUGGLING (and thereby contributing to TERRORISM, right? Yet the T-word never arose at ANY time!) is the "Central Intelligence" one! Angelina Jolie has made not ONE but TWO CIA movies- what better cover for CIA operative training than making a MOVIE, right? It was a cute "deflection" stunt to have a CIA agent claim as part of the "Salt" movie publicity that 'we would hire her in a minute"-when she was ALREADY working for them!

    Do you have any actual facts to back up these wide ranging accusations?
