Dead baby at abortion clinic

Dead Baby Found In Aborting Clinic, Clinic Closed

This isn't quite the "Cows found on farm" headline that it appears to be at first glance. (The whole business of abortion clinics is the production of dead babies; they're full of them and routinely ship them off to the pathology lab.) But this one weighted between 2 and 3 pounds and the police are involved. Early reports are that the mother was believed to be 22 weeks pregnant, which is not consistent with a 2 to 3 pound baby.

Crime blogger Steve Huff fears that this discovery may hurt the prochoice movement. I'd like to know how. Even if this does turn out to be the murder of a baby born live during an abortion, it would be far from the first. If all the cases that came before didn't do any lasting damage, there's no reason to believe that this one will cause abortion advocates more than a momentary annoyance. Can anybody say, "Kenneth Edelin"?
