David Corn has a report out this morning that pushes the continuing attacks on Mitt Romney's tenure at Bain Capital forward not just because of the business it involves disposing of aborted fetuses but because it extends the length of time he worked at Bain. According to Securities and Exchange Commission documents, Romney was involved in Bain's investment in a company called Stericycle in late 1999. What did Stericycle do? Well, it was a fast-growing, profitable medical waste company. But it also had some problems, such as getting fined for keeping body parts and dead animals in unmarked containers or exposing workers to tuberculosis. And then there were the fetuses. Romney now describes himself as "adamantly pro-life" now but embraced pro-choice positions on abortion in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Back when Bain was involved with Stericycle, anti-abortion activists have waged a campaign against the company.
But that revelation may not be the most significant part of Corn's report (conservatives who aren't wild about Romney's conservative credentials aren't making much noise now that Romney is the Republican nominee). The most damaging part may be the dates.

Dollars you spend at companies and the taxes you pay (if you pay them) are providing abortions each day.
I declare you guilty of murder because you spend money and pay taxes.
David Corn is a flaming Leftist who couldn’t care less about aborted fetuses. This is just another hit piece on Romney, whose spotty record on abortion is one of the reasons that conservatives wanted Santorum.
Corn simply wants conservatives to stay home on election day, which is not going to happen. Unfortunately, this is another “lesser of two evils” election with which conservatives are sadly familiar.
This is a stretch by anybody and David Corn is one of the nastiest liberals, which is saying a lot.
One wonders why you would choose to post a story like this here?
remember - these stories all have but one goal - to keep Obama in office.
I am not sure about this one, but there already have been some that are pure fabrication.
read them carefully and check them out every way possible
Well, did Romney and his policies stand over the delivery table and force nurses to kill babies who survive abortion? Obama did, and that’s worse.
You don’t say much. Are you still “kind of” wishing for the Bush tax cuts to expire?
BAIN and Romney were “fined for keeping body parts
and dead animals in unmarked containers
or exposing workers to tuberculosis.”
If true, you claim that is not relevant?
How about if they made $$$$$ selling the land
for the 911 Victory Mosque?
Time for the Republicans to get their stuff in one pile and get a candidate, and it ain't this guy.
The liberals at the Atlantic LOVE abortion.
Obamacare kills. We will ALL be paying for infanticide.
This is just media smoke and mirrors to suppress Republican voter turnout.
We teamed with Stalin to defeat Hitler. Didn’t mean we had to like or support Stalin’s agenda.
The Democrats are stuck with their mass murderer. Republicans can step back from the precipice ~ there’s still time.
We don’t need your candidate.
Actually, that’s not what this article says.
It says Stericycle was fined. It doesn’t say it was fined during the period Romney and Bain had in interest in the firm. And it specifically does not say Romney and Bain were fined.
Did Bain run this company, or merely have an investment in it? How large was the investment? Did they have control? How long did their involvement last?
All rather relevant questions in assigning degree of responsibility for whatever happened.
I would also like to point out that while I personally would not be involved in assisting abortionists by disposing of the bodies, doing so it at least an order of magnitude less immoral than actually killing living babies.
Who’s yours and how many states will he win?
Welcome to Obama-Biden through Jan 2017.
The country WILL not survive.
Maybe you’d rather welcome back Jimmy Carter. He did wonders for this nation and the Middle East too.
Look, us Conservatives lost the primaries.
At this point, he could eat baby on live TV and I’d still vote for him just to get rid of that commie impostor sitting in the White House!
The key is to focus on the Senate and House races. If we win those, we can pimp-slap Mittler R’omni (or, God forbid, Obama) back into submission.
The crime may be that they disposed of aborted fetuses rather than letting the gods of science have them to muck about with.
Well the good news is that we are all abortionists now.
Thank God McCain / Palin didnt’ win!!
Stalin wasn't on the side of the Nazis, and he knew they were his mortal enemies. I don't believe Romney feels that way about Obama and the liberals-communists-socialists-moocherscum.
