Does anybody have data on abortion motivated murder?

The first murder of an abortionist in ten years for apparent abortion-related motives has abortion advocates screaming about how it's the anti-abortion rhetoric that led to this murder.

So, for the last ten years, the tally of murders committed on the grounds that abortion is never acceptable: 1

"Prochoice" rhetoric is that abortion is a fundamental right of women. That "forced parenthood" is an evil and a violence done against the person. That an abortion only removes tissue, it does not kill. That there is no rational reason to object to abortion. That abortion is liberating. That abortion is good for women and families.

How many men have killed women based on this rhetoric? Murder is the most common cause of death among pregnant women. What percentage of those murders were fueled by proabortion rhetoric about how benign abortion is, how reasonable, how there's no reason to object, how it is freeing?

Can anybody get the data and do the math? I'd guess that it's in the thousands for the past ten years.

If anybody has figures on this, it would probably be HLI's Brian Clowes. (He did most of the number crunching for, if I remember right.)
