A few weeks ago, a pregnant woman went to a late-term abortionist to end the life of her child, who was determined to have abnormalities. A few days later, both were dead.
The mainstream media have showed a surprising lack of curiosity about this story, particularly compared to their wall-to-wall coverage of another woman’s death that some have claimed was related to not getting an abortion (though the medical inquiry there is ongoing).
But yesterday, a medical examiner ruled that, as the Journal News put it, “Coroner: Jennifer Morbelli bled to death following abortion”:
A New Rochelle woman died of complications from a late-term abortion at a Maryland clinic, the Montgomery County, Md., coroner confirmed Wednesday.
Jennifer Morbelli, 29, a schoolteacher in White Plains, bled to death after amniotic fluid in her womb spilled into her bloodstream, said Bruce Goldfarb, a spokesman for the Montgomery County Medical Examiner’s Office.
But the big paper most local to where the death occurred — that would be the Washington Post — continued its odd coverage. Odd because they’ve been much — much — more hard-hitting about the pro-life activists who revealed her death and have been pushing for justice than the abortion practice that ended this woman’s pregnancy. Last week, for instance, there was a prominent piece attacking these pro-lifers for … failing to uphold the dead woman’s privacy. No, not joking in the slightest.
